I feel lonely, all I do is go to college, study, eat and go to bed. I tried to make friends but most people I've met have been complete utter idiots or I've been unable to connect to people. What should I do to make more friends?
>most people ive met are complete utter idiots >i feel lonely
huh, i wonder why
>unable to connect
perhaps you think everyone who is not as intelligent of you as too inferior to relate to. yet you look to people MORE intelligent than you, and your elitist attitude turns them off, even if only subsconsciously.
most people can be friends regardless of intelligence, and the fact that you see MOST of the people you meet at college to be 'complete and utter idiots' is very telling.
you have unknowingly made yourself the bottom of the barrel. you are the line between smart and dumb, because anyone dumber than you, even by half a centimeter, is suddenly too inferior to be friends with. yet you expect everyone smarter than you not to group you with them.
>>16784844 Yea, your right. I can be a fucking asshole and have elitist attitude. I think I'm better yet I have no one other than immediate family, I'm really am the dumb one. I am trying to change myself. Any advice how to do so?
not much you can do other than go talk to people and hang out. i met a man the other week who built legos for a living. i personally hated legos growing up and new nothing about them now. but this man loved em so much he had the lego logo tattoo'd on him and spent his life making them for lego land.
but i didnt assume he was inferior because he was different. he was just different. I just listened to his stories and his passions and related them to my own (which tends to be storytelling) and connected with him on that level.
people dont need to be intelligent to have a fun conversation. a truly intelligent person finds dumb people with other assets to balance out his own. for instance, you arent social. meet someone who is social but retarded and use his social skills to improve your own social life.
that would be the smart thing to do, yeah?
at the end of the day, my best friends and I get together and put on our mario hats then play mario kart or mario party while having a drink or two. intelligence doesn't matter in mario party. but you still have fun.
