I completely fail at... watch

    ... socializing.

    Only now have I started to socialize with people a bit more. But the thing is that I have pretty long conversations with teachers but fail at having a decent conversation with any class-mates.

    Furthermore, I am 17 and I dislike going out on Friday nights... (I really don't understand why Rebecca Black is so wow about it...). To be honest, I hardly go out on Friday nights because I find it boring, what is there to do apart from sit down and have some alcohol? I have never been on a date. It's probably got to do with my inability to talk to people, because there is nothing aesthetically wrong with me - I actually get a lot of compliments. I don't know what to do...

    So... Any advice? And can anyone tell me what is so great about Friday nights?

    Maybe you're just an introvert? Try and socialize about more with people at college or something.

    Your just introverted. There's nothing specifically wrong with that. Your not like abnormal or anything.

    However, I would consider trying a few friday nights. At first, I didn't really see the point, but after a few weeks, after meeting new people, and not getting totally trashed, I started to enjoy myself.

    Same here. I've got absolutely the same problem

    Find yourself a good friend.

    That is fun, you know, and facilitates other fun stuff, like more drugs and sex.

    learn to dance and you're golden, honestly.. as long as you are not obese and hideous, you can pull simply by dancing, honestly it's like moths to a flame, got a friend who dances, has nothing else going for him, but still manages to hook up

    thank you for your input, everybody was most appreciative.

    OP, have things always been this way for you or is it just a recent thing? it may just be an awkward teenager phase if its only come on recently, but if you were always the same as a child you may just be introverted and shy- and i see absolutely nothing wrong with that i somewhat agree with what you said, but id say its definitely more fun once you get to know the people youre socialising with better
    It's always been like this tbh, and while there is nothing wrong with that, I do get quite depressed. I mean, I would like to have a love life and not have to feel horrible about myself. Most of all, I just want someone in whom I can confide or talk to on an intimate level... Something you can't do with friends, because they're not THAT close.

    I have a couple off good friends and thats just about all.
    And don't worry, I don't intend to join the flock. I still like being my bitter self.

    Sorry, but drugs do have long lasting effects on the brain - it is scientifically proven. I have a duty to myself, (and all the other idiots in the world who think they're all that) to maintain my high academic standards and be successful.

    So, drugs are no-nos.

    ... What? Learn how to dance? No thank you.
    Thanks for the suggestion, but it just won't happen. You don't go from being shy to dancing the Tango. And plus, I don't like dancing.

    Oh, hello there, you look like a nice busty young lady, would you like to indulge in a riveting night of sexual intercourse?

    I don't think that is going to cut it.
