I've never felt like I fit in most places... and I think of myself as being pretty socially awkward. It's been hard to overcome in a constant retail-social job. It's usually why I drink when I'm out with people. And why a lot of folks say they can't figure out if I'm listening/talking directly to them. Or that I seem aloof. I'm usually just off in my own thoughts, unwilling or unable to mix in. But then I'm sure people say the same thing I just said above, about me.
Some people that don't "fit in": murderers, hermaphrodites.
LEAVES PARTIES WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE
LEAVES PARTIES WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYEYou say that like it's a bad thing.
Sellersville is deep in the Philly burbs... and the folks my age living around here basically never left and have their high school friends and that's it... not going to make any more. They are assholes.F*ck 'em.
Getting along and being friendly is totally different than fitting in, in my opinion.
I'd rather be in a room with all kind of different people then surrounded by a bunch of people just like me.
I love documentaries, actually. Just not into movies. Never seen Star Wars; people think that's messed up. And I don't really read fiction anymore, either. I'd rather read a textbook.
YOU GUYS ARE ALLLLLLLLLLLLL AWESOME!!!
I'd rather be in a room with all kind of different people then surrounded by a bunch of people just like me. somtime it can be hella fun buggin out around stuffy folks too.i was at a girls party recently at a bar. i just went cause an old girl from hischool was there and texted me. ok. it was a bunch of socialites and their boyfriends at an 8 dollar a drink bar. wack. i just started telling dirty jokes to all the girls and being a loud fool while all the herby accountant ass bmw driving buff 200 dollar shoe wearing boyfriends just sat against the wall texting their moms or something. afterwards this girl introduced me to her fiance who said "real life of the party" to his girl when i turned my back, real condescending. so corny. F*ck alla them. im gonna do my thing and entertain myself if i have to.
t I feel like putting my fist through a wall when I meet so many DB's who seem to have no problems meeting women.

So what this boils down to is the following:
So what this boils down to is the following:A gang of folks with, as the saying goes, "curiously similar ways of being themselves."You know, I feel that a lot of this shit is yet another Life Issue that can be framed in terms of my mom's tendency to dis the driving of people with South Carolina plates even though she herself has South Carolina plates, her rationale being that she's different because she's not actually from South Carolina, while all these shitty drivers obviously are. By which I mean this: The idea that, among a group of people who are all engaged in the same activity--working in the same office, making small talk at the same party, whatever--the idea that you and you alone are capital-R Real, you alone are seeing through all the fake shit, while a very human and very understandable feeling/mechanism, is, for anyone past high-school age, a ridiculous thing to put any real stock in. Everybody feels this way sometimes, and there's nothing wrong with that, but I'm consistently surprised and disappointed at how many grown-ass folks will express it in full belief. ???I mean, yeah, I???m here, too, and I???m doing the same thing as all these people, but the difference is that they all love it???I, on the other hand, know that it???s bullshit. They really mean it???I am just acting.??? The presumption that you--the all-feeling you--possess anything close to a complete and real understanding of the background and intelligence and motivations of your co-workers, of those people at the bar there, of the people in line ahead of you, of anyone other than your damn self, is egotistical in the extreme, no matter how sad-sack your presentation. And to not just feel that way, but to take it far enough to seriously define one's self to any extent based on this presumption is just some shit unbefitting an adult. I would hope that a lot of what's going on in this thread is just venting, and is nothing that dudes would really take to the bank.Also, djdaze can catch it: The other day I had on some boat shoes with some cuffed jeans, and I was killing shit.
I leave parties without saying goodbye.In College people would say "You pulled a Nate" if you ever left a social event without notifying people of your impending departure.
