^ Yeah, that's true. I like the feeling after one or two and you feel a bit giddy and happy but once you get to the stage where your vision is blurred and you don't know where you are, that's when you've had enough in my opinion. Luckily, I have a few friends (called the boring ones by other, more distant ones) who share my thoughts so I have no problem there. I can have a good time sober so I don't feel the intense urge to be anything but that, really (plus alcoholism is present in my family, something I'm painfully aware of - and puts me off even more).

This goes with the first one too. People thinking you're weird because you don't like to party or go out. I rather have a small group of friends hang out, laugh, and act crazy then be around a huge crowd of strangers especially drunk strangers. Theres the exception to the rule like when I go to big cities, malls, or Mardi Gras parades, but other wise I'm not a "crowd" person.

I'm like that, too. I'm a bit of an introvert so I need to take a breather and be on my own after a while when I'm with people. Because of that people think I'm shy, which I'm not, particularly. So, often, I'm not invited to go out when there's a large crowd of people going because they think I won't want to which, fair enough, is usually the correct assumption. I'm still trying to make up my mind if this bothers me or not, though. I haven't decided yet. Isn't it nice to ask just in case? In case I do want to sometime?

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Alcoholism runs in my husband's family & its a put off to me as well.

It bothers me sometimes when I'm not invited, but other times i don't care. Like you said its a fair enough assumption when they don't invite me because they're probably right. There have been times I wish I wasn't at that party because I rather be at home or elsewhere.

Indeed.

@fabfouremily I'm kind of like that too. But I can be really shy too sometimes. I am the same when it comes to stuff with big crowds, I also need to be alone for a little while afterwards and sometimes activities with big crowds are very tiring for me, because I'm not a spontaneous and very talkative person, only when I'm alone with family or close friends, or if I'm in some interesting discussion. That's why I hate throwing parties myself too, because it's so tiring and also, and I know I shouldn't do this but I can't help it, I'm always worried people aren't enjoying themselves. Which makes the whole thing even more tiring. Gawd I sound like an old lady. I do enjoy going to parties or to a pub or club myself though, but I do have to know someone there, otherwise I'm not going. Luckily people often invite me, and I'm really trying to get out of my shell. I think I've grown a lot on that point though. 

I sometimes worry that I'm too ''old'' for my own good so I do occasionaly force myself to go out, even if I know there will be lot's of people or it's not really my thing. I just make myself because I don't want to be quite like I am. We two sound very alike now you mention you're the same, I thought I'd never ''meet'' anyone similar to me!
