    I don't really hang out with my friends, is that normal?

    OK, here's the deal. I have plenty of friends at school. It's not like I'm anti-social or anything. But outside of school, I don't really get together with any people. I go to parties and stuff like that, but not just hanging out with someone. I haven't actually gone out with anyone in awhile, since no one's really thrown any parties or anything. It's not like I have no friends, I just don't really see them that much outside of school. I don't know what is it. Is this normal?

    I do the same thing, but I don't really give it a second thought. I'm just not the kind of guy who likes to go out and I've never been big on parties. I think it's perfectly normal.

    Same here. Most of the time I like to keep the social part of my life at school, there's nothing wrong with it at all.

    I'm like that. I have tons of friends from high school and college, but I'm rarely out and about with them on a normal basis. I kind of had an inferiority complex where I felt like I'd be forcing myself into their schedules if I asked if they wanted to hang out or something.

    I've been trying to change that this year though. And it's far more fun to be out with them instead of wasting away in front of a screen all day.

    Its fine if you want to be left alone, and not hang out with anybody, but it does get kind of lonely to be by yourself all the time. So if it suits you just fine, there is nothing wrong.

    But it seems as though you not asking if its normal but how to change that. In school its easy, they are there, in your class. So you talk to them. But outside of school you are not with anyone, and it can get lonely. So how to make that person a friend from an acquaintance? Talk to a person who you would like to be friends with about upcoming movies, see if your interests are similar, if they are, talk about a particular movie you both want to go and see and just go to the movies. And before you know it, you will have a friend outside of school as well.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    If life gives you lemons, throw them at some one!

    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.

    Never Argue with an idiot, they bring you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    I believe it's fine and normal. I do to have alot of friends at my middle school and I consider myself a loner. Even though I talk to some of my friends I'm just a lonely person trying to find out who he is and why he's here. I sometimes consider myself to be worthless in this world. But I always make it through. In class I always do my work and never usually talk, and sometimes I always get picked at but I ignore them and move on. Also, I have no social life outside of school either, that doesn't mean it's not normal. So don't freak yourself out just because you don't talk to your friends outside of school.

    It seems unusual to me, but that's probably because I was the opposite. When I was in school, I sort of had two sets of friends: those that I saw everyday but never spent time with off campus, and those I saw everyday and continued to see off campus. I was never much of a party goer, but often after school (especially on Fridays and the weekends) I'd get together with various friends, going to the movies, doing stuff around town, or just hanging out at each other's place doing whatever (playing video games, listening to music, talking, etc.). I really valued those friendships. I was able to bond with people over shared interests and it was just fun to be able to spend time among people like me, giving us something to do.

    But like En Sabah Nur said, if it suits you I guess there's nothing wrong with it.

    Same thing goes for me too, I'm really just the kind of guy that just wants to go home early, not just to rest, but to study a bit.

    When I was in high school I had some friends, but I never did anything with them because nobody ever invited me to do anything. The ones that did always ended up getting me in trouble. So at least you're at home playing on the internet instead of getting in trouble. I wouldn't worry about it.
