    I also did that but that's because I am socially retarded.

    clubbing may be everything that the urban dictionary suggests but do you not feel that forcing yourself into scenarios that you are un-comfortable/not used to is good practise?

    As I explained above, most of these things, I just find absolutely absurd and nonsense.

    * Clubbing: I find it completely stupid. Check the definition of clubbing on Urban dictionary. That's my view on it.
    * Drinking, drugs, cigarettes: Don't see a single benefit of any of these, which are purely harming. Why go through that ****? Get hammered and then spend the next day in a hangover and feeling absolutely horrendous...
    * Female friends: That wasn't much because of choice, I just didn't get along with any girls, mainly because I was studying a course that was 90+ % guys (Civil Engineering).
    * Sex: Since I didn't get to know any girls well enough, I didn't wanna get into that as I'm not losing my virginity to someone who I'll regret for the rest of my life. It's kept for someone special.
    Clubbing can be pretty ****e sometimes but it is a way to meet girls and make 'female friends'...

    Not everyone who drinks gets hungover, people who can't handle their drink do.

    In the future you might not have the choice- I don't particularly like going out but I still do it as much as possible to stay social ect...?

    Why wouldn't I have the choice in the future?

    Not everything that happen to you is within your control, and you may get into a position at some point where being more extroverted could be advantageous. ?

    I don't think that going clubbing is the only way of being extrovert.

    No but the list you used suggests to me that you are quite introverted?

    There are a large number of practising Muslims living in the West. Most of them wouldn't go clubbing and all of them would never drink. I doubt all of them are introverted.

    No it's not. I've gone against a few things my religion tells me, but others are pure coincidences. Now, smoking or even shisha isn't against Islam at all. I personally decide not to do that. My point is that there are a large number of people that after uni stop clubbing and drinking-wise, the vast majority of Muslims wouldn't drink. Just as an example of a group of people.

    I see where your coming from- maybe your just mature beyond your age and therefore not motivated by similar things as others (like sex ect)?

    I'm Muslim, but that's got nothing to do with that. I've done things that one isn't supposed to do as a Muslim, so if I wanted to, I would've done these as well.

    Of course I'm gonna get married one day and will have sex... and I did have female friends before uni, just not at uni. But any of the others, I don't have any interest in those at all. Don't even wanna try them as I don't see a single benefit of those. Clubbing is the most stupid thing ever invented. The urban dictionary definition really sums it up for me. Smoking, Drugss, and Alcohol, I just don't see ANY point whatsoever in those.
    Did you ever go out to clubs then? Were there instances where you enjoyed it?

    I'm one who likes societies too. However I do plan on going out, not drinking though. Is there anything you did instead?

    As the title says, I (Male) went to uni,
    * Never touched alcohol
    * Never touched a cigarette / shisha
    * Didn't do any drugs
    * Never had sex
    * Never went clubbing
    * Didn't have a single female friend

    Ask me anything


    Why didn't I have female friends:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I just didn't get to know many girls. Mainly because I was studying a course that was so male dominated (Civil Engineering). We had 10-15 girls out of 160 students. Also, because I did get to know a few girls in first year, but then my friends circle didn't know any of them, which kinda created a gap and we talked less and less and the friendship kinda finished over time.

    Wasn't really out of choice. I did know a lot of girls, but not really someone I'd stay in contact with after uni.



    Why I didn't have a boring time:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    It might sound boring to you. But I can tell you I had the time of my life. There are so many societies which I joined. I went gliding, skydiving, attended a lot of performance events, went on road trips, travelled across the UK and Europe with friends, Socialised with friends every single day doing stuff from eating out to playing PS3, all-night Table Tennis sessions, cook together with friends, etc etc
    asalaamualaykum,

    i think im gna be pretty much in the same situation as you but i will probably have more female friends because of the course im studying

    Don't you think you'd struggle to talk and have a relationship with a female later on in your life if you've not had any female friends before? You can't just dive straight into a marriage...
