Does anybody else here just not understand how people can "have fun"?
I live in a house with 4 STEM college roommates, I didn't go to school, we are all 21, everyday I hear them making "thats what she said jokes", bonding while they all laugh their asses off at Bobs Burgers, and just in generally all engaging in conversations that I literally cannot even imagine pretending to be interested in "Yeah, the other day I was at the store, and peppers were on sale for buy one get one free, and I bought three, so I didnt know if I could get one half off, I talked to the cashier ....." they literally babble about this shit, and IM "ANTI-SOCIAL" and "autistic" for wanting to just sit in my room and read books instead?
This Saturday night they are inviting over 20 STEM geeks and having a "nerf war" at my house, I feel like a grumpy old man, but Im just not interested, and can't even imagine being interested.
I know I'm gunna get "fedora memes" thrown at me here, but I'm not claiming to be smarter than other people, hell they are in school and will get nice STEM jobs, washed up wives, and nice house while I work a dead end wagecuck job till I decide to off myself
Ill be the first to admit I am jealous and bitter
But this doesn't solve my problem at all, acknowledging these things doesn't make them go away
Contributing with something normies LOVE that I can't stand
>DUDE BLACK DICK LMAO!! HAHAHAHA
Please understand that the way that a normie feels REGULARLY when sober is the same way that robot feels after afew beers
You will only get it when you get a group of friends, people with whom you share interests, once you build a stronger bond with them you wont mind listening to boring shit. What you're saying makes sense in that context
I'll go ahead and act a little arrogant and say I'm smart, but yet that also sounds like a lot of fun?
It's weird, you gotta just be in the mood to 'let go' and relax to enjoy those sort of things.
Normies tend to always be letting go, but if you're much smarter it's a different story.
Think of it like being a teenager playing with your much younger cousins, to play with them you just gotta let go and be a bit autistic and it can be fun
>It's weird, you gotta just be in the mood to 'let go' and relax to enjoy those sort of things.
People always say this and it's annoying. I'm not tense, I'm not putting on an act, this is how I actually am. I *am* letting go. Me letting go does not involve me doing stupid shit.
>engaging in conversations that I literally cannot even imagine pretending to be interested in
this one right here. Especially when I'm working, I'm glad that I'm not obliged to be anchored with the people at registers, because they have nothing to say. They have no insights, they don't seem to hold any conversations about anything other than passing observations of the day. I can't understand how they can talk about what some such person did or did not do and how it made them feel for the entire day. It's vapid.
never. being myself would place me as the "party pooper" for not enjoying the latest television memes and jerking off about how great popculture is. if i have to ill just delude myself a little which is just gutwrenching to even type but the reason why i don't associate with anyone because i must remain pure
>the reason why i don't associate with anyone because i must remain pure
Huh. I thought I was the only one with this idea. Other peoples' ideas and consciousnesses are "contaminants" in my mind, and the longer I spend in self-reflection and the more I alienate myself from other people, the more "pure" my mind is and the more real my experiences become.
There's nothing wrong with you, I'm the exact same way. Most people tend to socialize about pure, pointless, drivel. Find yourself some smarter friends OP, maybe friends that have the same interests as you or read the same stuff you do.
exactly. The key here is to find people you can associate with WITHOUT having to delude yourself. So, prepare yourself for solitude, you know.
take this >>26427133 guy's advice. Those normalfags want you to take drugs to "loosen up and be yourself."
Here's the deal and this is really pointing out the obvious but normalfag culture is based upon lies. none of them of genuine people so ironically "being yourself" to them translates into "become fake" to fit in.
Just learn to love your misery like me. The weekend nights when I can stay up late and cry myself to sleep are some of my favorite moments nowadays.
I think the reward portion of my brain is fucked beyond repair
Misunderstood me. I don't mean to act yourself, hence my analogy. Do you honestly think an adult goofing around with some kids is "being himself"? Not at all. He's just letting go of the restraints of adulthood - just like I'm saying you could enjoy it if you stopped looking down on your friends and let go of the restraints of your intelligence.
It's like you guys think if you're smart you shouldn't be able to watch a tv show and chuckle with friends. Even Eistein would of let go and done some autistic shit every once in a while
Continuing, I'll go out with Stacey and Chad clubbing or some shit and when I get home I'll read some Erikson etc and then we'll all have a good laugh about the fact I do that weird shit in my free time while he does drifts in his car and she goes clothes shopping
Just let go and be autistic every once in a while and you'll enjoy it
The problem is that the tv shows widely enjoyed are the most shit bottom tier common denominator garbage made for only the most putrid brainless scum who feed from the trough of utter sewage only to shit out and hold it up and compare it as a representation of themselves in order to appear more unique and to share with other shit-smearing swine in an endless hedonistic corporate treadmill that not only keeps them reliant on the mechanically churned, separated and canned filth but ignorant to anything of significance
