    ^ yeah, what she said.

    I have low energy, must conserve it for what really matters to me, otherwise maybe spontaneity wouldn't be so bad. I have having something sprung on me by someone outside my initmate circle. I don't like to go by any rigid schedules just don't like suprises by others too much.

    The problem with spontaneity, also, is that you are likely to waste more money. I'm very careful when it comes to money.

    I dunno, I like the idea of trying new things, but it has to be on my terms and everything else has to be just right. Like I said, I do not like surprises.

    I think I like most kinds of spontaneity. Everything would seem really boring if I didn't have some leaps into the unknown once in a while. The people who can just go loony for no reason are really fun to be with. You can do silly stuff that would be embarrassing any other day with any other people.

    No no no... Its not bout the money. You can go dumpster diving, dancing on the streets, paint the walls or something...

    Her: Hey Dana I'm coming over, we're going to Y Destination.
    Me: Cool.
    *we go to X, Y, and Z Destinations*
    Her: Oh wait, let's go to V & W as well, it will take like 5 seconds
    *3 hours later, I am about to strangle her if she does not drop me off*

    Lol.

    Yeah, I cannot tolerate spontaneity when it significantly diminishes my supply of energy. If it's something I'm extremely psyched about, however, I will do it without a minute's hesitation. That spontaneity is usually reserved for people I'm interested in romantically or for fun short little activities with friends or family that were my idea.
    Lol thats exactly how I am. I have a pretty low tolerance sometimes even with my family and good friends when they drag me along a million different places. I usually end up just withdrawing into my head initially when this happens so I think its more due to anxiety. Admittedly though I usually do end up having a really good time some of those times.

    That would be a total waste of my time. Wasting time is possibly even worse than wasting money.

    Ok, that means you don't like it.

    Although as far as dancing in the streets, it's always fun to watch someone else get hit by a bus from doing something stupid...like dancing in the streets!

    Who said anything about a mall?

    I was thinking about people's houses, restaurants, running errands..

    You don't EVEN want to drag me to a mall. Instant surliness.
