About socializing 😢

Recently I wanted to go to my Magic (card game) meetings, and draft, play and have fun with people.

I know socializing is extremely important. Especially for us who don’t have many friends.

But today I feel like I don’t want to go there. Idk, I don’t want to see anybody; let alone spend 4-5 hours surrounded by people that I don’t know.

Anyways, I have a draft on Wednesdays, and I play on Saturday. I’m having second thoughts about wanting to go.

I hope you feel better bro. Maybe you’re slightly depressed?

Maybe… I stopped taking ad’s a while ago. But the thoughts are only since today.

Magic is something that in theory sounds fun, but in practice I don’t know if I want to do.

You know I thought about the game a bit it’s kind of annoying imo there’s something about it that is really boring at times and it can be fun if you’re the people you’re spending with are good at conversation and your friends with them already but…

I mean I love the game, but atm I’m too confortable playing it online…

It’s your decision, but keep in mind that you need to socialize. You don’t want to cut yourself off.

I used to go to a sunday dance event in DC. It was fun at first, and I made a lot of friends and socialized, but eventually it got old. Maybe that’s what’s going on with you, but everyone is different and I don’t know your story. What I will say is that I always liked seeing my friends on the dance floor, so maybe you would enjoy it more if you made friends with those people.

I think you should go if you typically enjoy it

I’d take it a day at a time. You don’t have to decide right now if you never want to go back, you can just say “hey, today I don’t feel like dealing with socializing,” while still keeping your options open for next time. You may feel more into it next time or the time after that.

I understand how you feel so much. I also am in a similar situation regarding socializing. I hope you feel better about it today. I hear that Magic is a good game and enjoyable and a good hobby. Maybe you can get lost in your love for the game and focus on that. Maybe that could help make the socializing part a bit easier? Knowing that you have that in common with these people already. I guess knowing that would help me feel a tiny bit more at ease if I kept that in mind. Good luck to you with your socializing!

You’ve been inspirational to me. I think I’ll go to a painting class at my local coffee shop (that hosts it). I think it’s next week. Anyway, I will sign up for it now.

Socializing is very important. I have learned that here. Thank you @dreamer54 and thank you all here.
