One time, I think around the age of 18 or so, a friend takes me to a party.

I immediately find the nerdiest looking person and we spend the whole time talking about how interesting black holes are.

This is me at these sorts of events, although I'm far less likely to attend in the first place these days.

Or at least until some annoying extrovert decides to interrupt; "Oh, come on you two, lighten up, it's a party, why aren't you enjoying yourselves like everyone else?!" :wink:

Im struggling with this now as well. I feel lonely and dont have a social life and think about going to a bar to socialize cause there is nothing else to do where i live but i feel like the only people who would socialize with me would have ulterior motives and would not be genuinely interested in interacting with me in a nin physical way.

Doesn't the internet provide some relief from loneliness?
I wish I had it when I was a kid...
