    We should. At least we wouldn't have to explain why we have to be careful what restaurant we go to. Tell me a time

    That is hard. Kudos to you. Yes, we all do our best with what we have. And pray it's enough. Sounds like you are doing more than enough.

No need for cake. We all just do what we can.

    I think that's the reason for most of people's introvertedness. Other people can really try to push you down or say/do other non-positive actions, so it's hard to talk to people who are so fake all the time :\

    Bless you.

    I feel the same way about small talk.

    I think my frustration comes from having a lot of those people in-between.

    I like having a mix, too. However, since I've moved a few times, I don't have all those school friends to rely on; my closest friends are far away, and making new besties who live nearby feels like it's impossible as an adult. Once people hit their thirties, it seems like no ones looking to meet new friends anymore; they seem happy with what they've got.
