Would you consider yourself to be an interesting person?

I don't think I'm as engaging or captivating as I could be.
Growing up I was very shy and still am to this day.
I have hobbies and interests but none I've been able to share in a group setting.
Large groups of people make me nervous as hell. Especially when it comes to juggling the various personalities.
So I often take a back seat and let them monopolise each other.

Not particularly. A handful of people probably find me interesting, but I don't think most people do.

You sound like someone who's very easy to be around, someone who's pleasant and low-key. I'd much rather associate with someone like that than an interesting, "life of the party" type.

@Rutterman thank you. That's kind to say
For those who share the same interests, values, thought processes, yes.

But if with interesting you mean extrovert-life-of-the-party, then I’m definitely not that.

I usually enjoy one on one conversations with people I find engaging, rather than to socialize and talk to everybody in a group setting.

No I’m quite boring I don’t know how family and friends tolerate my presence for more then a few moments actually

It all depends if I am comfortable in the group. I think when anyone is relaxed and accepted that we are inherently interesting.

What are your hobbies and interests?
LilcuteLilcrazy · 46-50, F
@Icedsky oh wow!!
Mellowgirl · 31-35, F
@Icedsky they're really cool 😎😊 thank you for sharing...
I can relate to pretty much all of that. I’m still rather reserved and uncomfortable among large groups of people. Certain topics can draw me right into a conversation—once I’m comfortable with the other speakers. My friends have known me for so long they sometimes forget that I’m quiet with strangers.
@Mellowgirl Several of the people with whom I joke here I’ve been speaking to for around ten years, some even longer. 😊

@bijouxbroussard I think if we had lunch together real life we would both enjoy it. 🤗
@tindrummer Agreed. 🤗

I am an introvert with limited hobbies and interests. I am a minimalist.

And I do share thoughts with people who are willing to spend time and energy to invest in good connections.

One damn good connection is a billion times better than a million connections with few messages / thoughts shared.

No, but I feel I could be, to the right people.
I don't mesh well with large groups either.
Same here, my hobbies aren't popular. Seems like only going out and drinking and twerking are acceptable

Nor are the engaging people you refer too!

And with everything else on this post, you're getting better!
Yes I am. I’ve had some different experiences other people tend to find interesting. However I’m already bored of! 🙃 adhd life.

No I'm rather boring and I get tired of people easily. 🤷‍♀️
Mellowgirl · 31-35, F
@Lilymoon Yea that can happen. I mean a lot of our interactions are quite superficial. You have to really want to engage with someone to make it work.
Lilymoon · F
@Mellowgirl Yup, exactly.

LilcuteLilcrazy · 46-50, F
I can be interesting, but I’m mostly a little boring.
jennyCook · 22-25, F
I think I am but you would have to ask others

I bore myself sometimes. Most times.
Torsten · 36-40, M
not really. I

Fascinating lol

I let other people have the final say, but yes, I do think there's something here.
