    f1 fanatic, I am quite worried about the fact that you have juan pablo montoya in your signature. Now, if it were nick heidfeld or say, nico rosberg, I would be less worried. Hopefully Gary Paffett will replace JPM in 07 or 08 :P
    Im impressed - you should check out the F1 thread sometime

    And its there cos Im a Mclaren fan and I like the picture artistically rather than for the fact it is JPM. - although he's not THAT bad on his day

    My friends are great, but theres one problem - its really hard to get them to go out at weekends! They all have excuses, like 'Ive got too much work to do' or 'I dont have any money!'. Some just say, 'I cant be bothered!'
    Its kinda depressing, because it stops me going out if i dont have anyone to go with!
    Anyone got any suggestions as to how to make them more enthusiastic??
    I try to have two types of friends , the working class friends who always discuss work and clubing friends , doesnt mean u go out everyweekend , but once in a while would be nice. Thats the best cobo to have

    I like pubs where you have room to sit down and can hear what your friends are saying...but increasingly, every pub I seem to try out is playing unbearably loud rubbish music and is packed full of idiots! Mind you, I am in Plymouth so that provides something of an explanation :p:
    Ah, now I get you. I know how that feels, I hate crowded places in most cases and would be totally unable to relax in the sort of place you're describing. I am blessed with a ****load of good pubs near me.

    What exactly did you suggest?

    I'm not a drinker or big on hanging around in pubs or clubs so don't go out every weekend when my friends do. Every now and again, they will "offer me some help", telling me how boring I am for never coming out. They suggest if I came out, I'd be less boring, which doesn't make much sense, I mean, why do something I don't enjoy instead of something I do, or something more productive, just to increase my level of perceived "coolness"? If your advice was along the lines of this (I presume it was more informed and sensible), I can see why he got annoyed.
    well said.

    In addition to that, the meaning of 'boring' is not universal... it varies, so i don't think it's fair to say weather someone is boring just beacause their interests are not common, and do not like the things most people like or are less active etc...
    Mybe you can find something you all like and do that instead... like going over to each other's houses, listen to music and chat or something...

    The thing is you can get really offened when sum1 hu is supposed to be your friend always says that they dont wanna come out, its like them saying that they dont wanna see you.
    I know what you mean cos i had a bunch of friends who were like that we hardly ever went out but then i talked about it with 1 of the group n we started going out more, it did cause a bit of strain on the friendships but now ive ended up with a huuuuge friendship group n lots of goin out time and things to do.

    I get what you mean, i guess it depends on how much your friends like it. If they don't mind going out with you but are just too lazy, then maybe a bit of persuasion is needed. But if they really don't like socialising , then it's not fair to get them to go with you just because you like it, and it wouldn't be fun anyway, as they are obvoisly not enjoying it. like if i bring my friend (who only likes indian pop music) and brings her to a metal concert, i wouldn't be able to fully enjoy myself knowing that she feels uncomfortable. I think it's best to bring friends who are just as enthusiastic about going out as you, then you will enjoy it more...

    I know but surely everyone likes going out to someplace be it shopping, meal, pubs, just hanging out etc... Whats the point of having friends if you dont go out? You would seriosly prefer to interact with a computer all day then with real-live people, who are your friends???

    erm me? i don't use the computer that much actually i don't think the main point of friends is so that you can go out with them, they are well... your freinds, they're people you can communicate at the deeper level with. There are places everyone would like to go, but some people generally don't like to go out and socilaise much, and if the point of going out is to socialise with other people anyway, why need your friends?
    I personally prefer either to stay home with a couple of friends, or go to a quiet place with them, such as the cemetry or park, where we can have deep conversation and think about life... i don't like crowded places, peace is very important to us, and we don't go clubbing etc. since me and my friends go green with nausea everytime we hear dance/ hip- pop etc. music being played so having it blasting at maximum volume is not exactly our idea of fun... it also helps if you have common interests, such as for example, me and my friends are very passionate about music and we do a bit composing in our spare time, it's something we all enjoy and we don't take it too seriously...
    i think, in conclusion, it's all about making the right friends, if they are very different to you, you are mosty likely not to get along...

    I have a boring friend. I told him exactly what I thought of him. He "retaliated" and made a complete tw*t of himself.

    He's not spoken to me since. :rolleyes: Never mind. I was only offering my help to make him less boring.
    Wait a second...
    You actually had a friend then you lost him?

    Nice one Vlad, real nice.

    But it's not really a case of how right or wrong what they enjoy doing is. Perhaps they genuinely don't enjoy going out. Ok, it's a bit antisocial and weird, but if that's what they want, it's hardly anyone else's place to bully them into their opinion of normal is it?
