    Well, i was going to say 'hello phil, if you fancy a chat any time let me know' but i stared at it for 5 mins or so then realised i'm not very good at conversations and im kinda boring so we'll scratch that. But if there is anything i can do to help when your feeling down let me know

    Yeah. For sure. I can't handle events with large amounts of stimulation or I get really overwhelmed and just want to run away. So I can't do house parties. Or clubs. Or anything like that. God, I hate lectures as it is. All the muffled noise drives me mad. I'm not shy though. So it's not like I can help that.
    Ah I see.. I completely understand, I was the same like a year ago. Funnily, I made a few changes and went from a total introvert to a semi one you should start from small steps and then see how it goes from there. It's totally curable, so don't lose hope!

    Studying from home. Not asking explicitly for people's contact details. Not enjoying high-sensitivity-social-events and any event based around alcohol.



    Who's there?
    you tried going to a house party and just staying in the kitchen or garden with the rest of the people that just want to stand there talking?

    No, I fear you don't understand. I'm not shy. Psychological sensitivity is not a disease and it cannot be cured. My introversion is something that is, but there are plenty of introverts with lots of friends. It is not that as to why I lack them. I used to have many acquaintences when I was younger and more insecure and less open and honest. When I realised what I really am like and became more open and honest I lost my friends and never gained news ones and that makes me feel terrible about myself

    A conversation with 4 people is too much for me. I just can't stand it. It can rarely achieve enough depth to be tolerable and is only bearable with drugs - something I refuse to use.

    So I dont understand why you didn't make any new ones? Friends come and go, happens to everyone. But theres for sure someone out there to whom you can relate to.. You said honest, what do you mean by that? Maybe you went overboard and hurt their feelings?

    Seems like you had a productive day What do you learn in Philosophy? It's an intriguing subject.

    Good of you to make someone smile. Happy world.

    TSR has become a bad addiction of mine. It's terrible. I probably will too :lol:
    Eh it wasn't bad. Got a bit done :P I mostly focus on ethics, metaphysics and the philosophy of science but it is an absurdly varied subject. So that's, respectively and very broadly, looking at what is the nature of good and bad and how can we act good/bad and thus how ought we act and not act? What is the nature of reality - what constitutes reality, how ought we view it, catergorise it and understand it? And then what is science, what is the best way for science to operate? When is using science optimal compared to other methods of enquiry, what are the bounds of science and so on...

    I just wish people I meet IRL could make me smile At least... Gah. It's always so transient and unreliable. meh meh meh.

    Hmm. I need TSR tbh or I'd go totally cookoo or worse.

    tbh the deepest conversations usually come out of drunk people because they always start talking about their feelings etc. And conversations aren't always between alot of people. You can just find someone on their own and just start talking to em one on one.

    I have similar problems btw (not as severe though). I always feel like running away after talking to people for a few seconds lmao. But it works to my advantage I guess because I meet more people and everyone knows who I am. And I've been working extremely hard to fix this as well because it used to be quite bad and I'd never leave the house.

    They weren't friends in the first place. They were just mates. I never trusted any of them. I never shared any important life details with them. Never would go out and do something meaningful with one or two of them, only loiter about with the whole crew. Just bull****. Waste of time. I had to maintain a facade the whole time I spent time with them. But in high school I got on with literally everyone. But somehow I didn't care back then. Maybe I had no ambition or life goals set out so I just sort of drifted along meaningless. I try to keep myself on track now and it puts others off and... I dunno I just having been able to make any new friends at university. But I am not interested in mates. I want friends.

    What?

    No. Not sure what your meaning of deep is, but no. Talking to a drunk person while sober is as productive as smashing your head into a wall.

    I can talk to an individual for all eternity though analysing bloody everything they do without getting bored providing they could keep up. And I mean, I don't press them. I understand people won't be able to keep up with that sort of deep conversation for as long as me. But most people just don't even try in the first place damnit!

    what's your definition of a deep conversation then? lol. And there are different levels of drunk btw. As in someone might have just had a few sips of alcohol and just became less shy and more talkative.
