    I think you are misunderstanding what "social well-being" means. You don't have to be a sociable person in order to be socially healthy. That is, your social health is not determined by how much you socialise, but by how happy you are with it. If you do not socialise much but are quite content with it, then you are socially healthy.
    I don't think anyone is truly happy if they live on their own, have no friends and never go out and talk to people, ie have absolutely no contact with the outside world. They can convince themselves they are but they're probably not.

    "maybe your the one who needs to get out more". I am referring to those who would be typically unsociable, such as people with antisocial behaviour problems..rather you who needs to get out more, not them. My argument is valid. You seem to be assuming a lot even though you have no access to my frame of mind

    "Maybe you're the one who needs to get out more" is a direct reference to me being like the OP (who apparently needs to get out more), but in any case you are still saying that it is possible to need to go out, even when the person in question happily disagrees.

    I have not put any words into your mouth; I suggest you re-read your posts.
    No, again incorrect, I am suggesting the possibility that he may want to go out.

    Like at weekends etc he just sits in and watch movies/tv or play games rather than go out clubs/parties etc?

    Thats all i do these days I dont enjoy clubs barre picking up a girl and its costly and the mates i used to have parties with no longer do.

    Not that im bothered what others think of me personally just in a general opinion.

    In that youd think theres that creepy recluse he only leaves his house for food and sex lol which is all i do these days as i no longer play sports either and i have a home gym so dont go to gym
    not that odd you just need to make sure that you are around people a few times so you don't become really unsocial e.g. you might not enjoy going out to clubs and also you say you have a gym, but it wouldn't hurt to go out with people at least once a month e.g. it may be going to a sports centre which would be a bit of a change. However you say you leave the house for food/ sex which shows that you are probably socialising and not completley avoiding people altogether so I don't think it it too unhealthy as you are still around people sometimes if that makes sense

    If you mean X, it is inadvisable to say Y, as it will lead people to believe you mean Y.

    Argument from ignorance. I won't bother responding, I have better things to do.

    Umm, no. Just wanted to point out why you are wrong - first sentence in that post - and then get out of the argument because I have woken up 7 hours late today, so have loads of work to do. I'm not responding any more.

    You're still online and I just saw a few posts from you in another thread, 5 minutes ago. Nice try though :cool:

    Well, aren't you smart. I have told you why you are wrong already. Twice.

    I'm online because I never close tabs, and is it really that strange to imagine that I have a short break every so often, in which I can post in threads without getting pissed off? I am only frustrated in this thread because you (and the other guy) just ignore whatever I say and continue to babble on.

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...=#post40862595

    is there a local place where you can play pool, like a Rileys, for example?

    You have posts 4,12,24,39,45,50,51 minutes ago. You take a break every 8 minutes or so do you? You're either lying or not very good at concentrating.

    I'm sure you're happy trying to convince people that you don't need social interaction and are fine being a loner, but you're just fooling yourself.

    The latter.
    I genuinely do have work to do, I have AS exams next week. But I find it difficult to plough through work on its own, I have to be doing other things as well otherwise I lose focus immediately.

    I'm sure you're happy trying to convince people that you don't need social interaction and are fine being a loner, but you're just fooling yourself.
    Why is it so difficult for you to understand that there might be people who are happier on their own?
    I for one am quite content with not having much social interaction, because when I'm with people I almost get claustrophobic of people. It's not a fear of being around people, but I feel hugely uncomfortable.

    I'm sure there are, in fact I think I'm one of them. I'm just saying if you had absolutely zero social contact (not even school or work), that wouldn't be healthy and you wouldn't be happy.

    I'm just as happy when I'm on my own as when I'm with friends.

    But I do agree with you that in the long run, a grown-up living alone with little other social contact will probably suffer mentally.

    So you don't like being sociable? Well if it makes you happy......good luck to you
