    Very, very sad because I'm so bad at it and it makes it so that nothing ever leads anywhere, I deeply want it to as it does in my dreams. But maybe they are farfetched. I just don't know how other people do it.

    Like if we get closer, we might mutually explode. Whether I consent depends on how I feel about explosions at the time.

    Not only do I feel bored by sp stuff, but after doing sp things I feel like I've become more boring. It's not just dissatisfying, it's anti-satisfying -- I feel worse after the fact. The only exception is when I've been putting it off for a while, in which case it's a relief, but I still don't feel good about it.

    I do find some small joys in sp things, but I'm not sure if it's for instinctual reasons or not. For example I really like doing laundry, because the entire process is calming and zen to me: sorting, folding, the smell/feel of fresh and clean clothes. Also I like cleaning as long as I can see it as a challenge/project, because then it's super gratifying when it's done.

I also subvert some of the stuff to sx like going to the gym to up my attractiveness. Of course every time I leave I leave feeling just great about myself, but if I am honest the main reason I go is to not let myself go and also increase how appealing I look to others.
    I feel you re: applying so/sx motivation to sp. Like, "I can't wait to show this off!"

    Yesssss.

    I'm not sure I actively work on my SO, which is........not good, haha.

    I'm bad at collecting a steady group of friends, and SUCK at team sports (though I consider myself athletic).

    Networking has been a struggle all my adult life. It seems to come so naturally for some. I love people, and need more social interaction than most, but the paradox is actually SHOWING UP to social settings is a huuggge weakness. Even though when I do, it usually goes swimmingly. So in the past, jobs I've had that are social, like bartending or camp counselor or consulting, have all been good solutions because you HAVE to go to work.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    Like it's too much work to deal with and that it will never come naturally (So-last).
    The only way out is through. The faster you're in, the better.

    This. It's fairly exhausting but I've gotten better at it and that helps me not hate it.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Awkward and forced/fake, though I can be surprisingly competent at it on occasion, especially if I've had a few drinks to ease my social anxiety.

    In that which is night to all things, therein the self-subjugated remains awake; but where all else is awake, that is night for the knower of the self.

    I guess, I don't. I don't even try. The cool thing about being sp/sx is that social shame/guilt for not trying doesn't register until somebody decides to chew you out. Otherwise I can be oblivious. My friends are people I like spending one on one time, and I kinda have people networks, but that's because I am extraverted and they're kinda an sp safety net, one with a lot of gaps, but it's kinda there.
