    It's tough man. I've been there and I'm still kinda there but I've been getting better. Honestly I spent so much time holed up with my own friends I forgot how to socialize with people I didn't know. Just gotta try to take interest in what they are saying I guess and have to get over any shame/embarrassment even in the smallest bit.

    ^ I was kinda like that for a while too, I grew up living next door to my best friends and we grew up hanging out, skating together, drinking together, going to partys together that once I was put in situations where I wasnt out with them (University, jobs, girlfriends friends etc) I was like....shit. I think just finding who you are and being comfortable with it helps though. Milo is right about the interest thing though, I heard somewhere once that "interested is interesting" but still theres only so much bullshit you can pretend to be interested in haha so gotta find that happy medium

    you gotta find similar people. be unapologetic about what you like (& what you don't like). a lot of times other people think the same thing but they'll carry on inane conversations so as to be inoffensive.

    works for me. i don't have that many friends but the few i do have are like bros 4 life. better than people i know that had a TON of friends in their early 20s and are now realizing they're all shallow and slowly stop talking to them.

    18-23 is i,think just a weird lonely time for everybody

    I'm pretty socially awkward but I can hold conversations decently well (starting them is another issue). I'm interested in getting a glimpse of how other people see things I guess, at least for my own understanding.

    I don't know, i think i'm boring as fuck when i speak to new people
    (i think) im the least boring person when i'm with my close friends

    and drowning_fish, the thing about being unapologetic is that it's almost seems like a gimmick. maybe that's just me, but it seems like: just the mere fact of disagreeing with someone (on any subject) is the drive, or the point of the conversation, so they'll carry on the debate (on whatver subject) just because they feel more real with themselves and the other person they're talking to, but at the end, they don't give a fuck as much as the next guy

    once again i'm overanalyzing all of this, and i'm drunk. and really can't explain myself clearly, but wtv, if anyone can relate, please pitch in

    Better to pursue hobbies & passions rather than friends, I say. Perhaps you’ll be happier with the time you spend, and the right people will appear more naturally. I’ve come to hate the bars since my favorite dive closed (it was essentially a revolving open mic, guitar around the woodstove and all). Try being 28, in the middle of a long separation/divorce, and partially responsible for a kid. I’ve made and abandoned many new friends, the few that are sticking came through music, basketball, and skateboarding. One random girl, that romance escapes so far, has been a casual friend and getting more friendly now that pressure is off....the other day I finally exchanged info with some guys I’ve played ball with randomly at least 5 times. I just walked up at the gym after balling and asked if they smoke weed, lol.

    Yeah I think it was universally agreed he was a good skater but a bit of a prick with a high opinion of himself

    I always thought that guy was decently low-key, maybe I didn't see enough of his posts

    From what I gather, the east coast kiddies always took skate footy super serial. There was usually more footage posters from the East Coast vs West, but there's some gems from the West coast users. I never had a problem with DTJ on here, he seemed like he wasn't the most uptight and elitist compared to other people.

    i think the people who are above average at a thing within a community centered around the thing tend to come off kind of like that more often than not. obviously not everyone does but I just notice it happen a lot.

    I see it happen a lot on some of the other hobby-related places i visit online. or even at my job really.
