Am i a hipster? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have very few friends and only ever had one girlfriend when i was like 14...im 19 now and feel so lonely, i think it might be because of what i expect from others.
    I kinda have social anxiety due to being alone for so long but when i do talk to people i feel like an weirdo when i tell them about myself and feel like i turn them off, I'm not that into stuff like partying, academics, drinking, sports etc, I'm considered kinda geeky and 'artsy' my main interests are in music, drawing and manga and video games. I've been told i dress kinda weird too. What i wanna know is why do i feel like I'm isolating myself when tell the common person about myself?...i hate the use of the word hipster but am i considered one? even whenever i have conversations about the music the conversation ends coz its things they haven't heard of.
    The only times i can socialise is when i force myself to go to parties,drink etc otherwise id be alone..
    Am i considered a weirdo to the common person or have i just not met the right people?
    oh and I'm a decent looking black boy btw


    Yes you are what we call a "extremist hipster". Just go to your local Nandos, listen to some House music and wear some Air Max 95s. Soon after you shall transform into a lad- who knows?? You may even become a ledge and the archbishop of Canterbury like Phil Mitchell

    Nah you sound normal, maybe you're introverted but half the people are. See your doctor if you have social anxiety :hugs:

    Hipsters are beta male *******s who try to be counter cultural and alternative on purpose, you have geeky interests bc you actually like them
