Default anyone else see themselves as " boring?"

does anyone else see themselves as boring

I think one of the reasons (one out of many reasons), why I don't have any friends, is because I don't really have much to offer to the friendship

I mean: no one wants to know I am eating potato chips, no one wants to know I'm bouncing on the bed, no one wants to know about what's in my drink cup, I generally feel I'm boring

people these days want to know about work. interesting/ fun experiences. have a laugh. they don't want to know about how many chicken nuggets are in my nuggets box..

I think that I could very well be boring. It seems like I don't have as long conversations with people as others do. Life, lately, has been pretty boring for me. I had recently posted a thread called "So Much Sameness" in the Coping With Emotions forum; so that should explain it, I guess.

However, I feel like I'm not very well liked. I don't know why. So many seem to give me the silent treatment. I don't know what I could have done to set them off. This is especially true with my neighbors. It seems like the people like me much better at my job than at where I live.

For myself, I feel like it depends on the people I'm interacting with. If we have nothing in common then I'm sure I seem boring. But if we can strike up a conversation about interests, then I feel like I'm social. Sometimes I feel boring when the other person talks about going to all kinds of places. It's difficult to have a conversation because I mainly stay at home. So I guess it just depends.

thank you for posting this.

I have this issue too. not so much, " the silent treatment", but when I'm around their is a lot of whispering about me, and also their is a lot of uneasyness

a lot of times too, when I have tried to join in a conversation (like asking about an event or something), I am simply shut down by being told oh, well, it's nothing really- well it is, because you were just talking about it.

I don't know.. maybe I really am hated by people

Default Re: anyone else see themselves as " boring?"

I’ve been told by plenty of people that I’m boring, both when I was trying to be social and minding my own business where they just happened to be hanging out.
Sometimes it has bothered me, the feeling I have little to offer in a friendship I mean, but generally I think it’s actually kind of rude to tell others they’re boring, when there’s no opinion being sought (or offered lol). It’s a lot easier to feel social/not boring if you can find someone with a lot of similar interests - even better if they have others and you get curious enough to ask about them!
I’ve definitely been through the whispering/being shut out of conversations thing, it’s so nasty and even kind of childish to do.

Yes, all the time. But I don't care anymore. I probably am and I try not to let it bother me. I'm not always successful. I find it difficult to get out of my rut and try to talk to people because it's so exhausting. So I go back to netflix and taking care of my dog.

I feel more secure in group setting, since I'm not on the spot and can let other people talk. Also, when I'm feeling insecure, I tend to just ask the other person a lot of follow up questions. Most of the time they're glad to talk about themselves.
