Yes, I'm boring and I don't care

I classify as a boring person. I used to have a hard time admitting it and I used to feel isolated, especially in high school. When all your classmates have a bunch of friends and so anxiety, you start to feel like you don’t belong.

You’re not interested in the same things as they are and you don’t really care about boys and making them like you.

At 18, it made me feel self-conscious. At 23, it doesn’t. At times I feel I’m in situations I’m not equipped to deal with, especially when I’m with people whose version of “having a good time” is completely different from mine.

Let me tell you what I mean by “boring”:

I’m not a party person

Meeting new people and going to parties where I don’t know most of the people who are there terrifies me. I don’t like going to bars or to the disco. They make me uncomfortable.

I don’t like drinking or getting drunk. I don’t like doing stupid and reckless stuff.

You don’t break the rules. You follow them.

I like staying at home

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve invited friends over and we just ordered in and sat on the couch watching tv. That’s the perfect night for me. Good company and good television

I am super into US politics and Podcasts

Yes, I am that annoying friend you all know and have, who is always talking about the podcast they’re just finished listening. I have the most random obsessions and they’re usually obscure and weird.

I am a serious person

I can be around people when I have to. Even in social situations or particular events. I like to think I can make people feel comfortable and I am a good small talk conversationalist (if that’s even a word) but I am quite serious, strict and quiet.

I love talking to my friends, I like having deep conversations with them. I don’t need to have extreme experiences to have fun. I just need good people around me.

Are you a classic “boring” person? Are you more of an extrovert or an introvert?

  1. When I was in Uni, I was in a bunch of writing classes and in all of them we were supposed to write non-fiction about ourselves and our childhoods. I very rarely had anything to interesting write about because, as I realized, I am also rather boring and my upbringing was also pretty boring. Though I prefer to view it as ‘average’.
    I also don’t love going to clubs or to wild parties, but sometimes I still go because they can be fun and it’s fun to hang with friends. I’m always the responsible Mom Friend who never gets blackout drunk, but that doesn’t make me (or you) boring, that makes us smart.
