    just because they've realised socialising is more fun when you're tipsy doesn't mean they're shy

    why would they find small talk boring if they're not shy??
    "and it's soo much easier to talk to people after you've had a few"

    My point was if you're spouting that then either you're shy or you must find it difficult to small talk (talk in those scenarios) with folk in which I'm guessing it just doesn't interest you? Not sure why else it would be difficult.

    You'll come to like drinking after some practice. It's a bit like drinking coffee except coffee doesn't numb the pain

    No, lol.

    This will probably sound a bit nasty but it always amazes me how weak-minded people can be.

    If you're really that shy though wouldn't it be better to try and work on that shyness than mask it with drink? Fair enough if you're doing both but few do.

    And if you ain't shy you must find small talk in such situations boring, in which case I would ask again, why use drugs to force yourself to be able to tolerate it? Just don't go in such a scenario...
    I'm extroverted so I crave attention and conversation but I'm also very nervous and it gets easy to overthink what I'm saying or just talk random :dolphin::dolphin::dolphin::dolphin: endlessly because I'm scared.

    I'm not shy I'm just scared, and alcohol gets me less scared if you get what I'm saying.

    Wish i went anonymous now.

    I'd say you're quite shy sir

    Or perhaps just inexperienced with the situations within which you're drinking alcohol??? New situations are always uncomfortable.

    No I'm not really inexperienced. Maybe i am shy but I'm always talking to everyone whether I'm sober or not it's just less scary when I'm drunk
