    Oh yes, and might I add:

    You're so smart, insightful, original, charming and funny, Blackmail! If I had your talents, why, I'd be arrogant too. I mean, such marvelous talents, they are!

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I stick around for some graceful period of time and try to learn what makes them so boring to avoid it the next time.

    If it's boring in a non-eventful manner, I might show a bit of boredom too, it's okay, as boring people probably don't have a clue to my boredom / interest level either, so they won't notice. These kinds of people probably have low energy levels, so they might just guess I'll go to sleep or something like that.

    If it's boring in an active manner, I'll attempt to enjoy it for a while, show my approval - and hell, I can approve for some boring things for a while - thank for the event and leave. If they're superficial enough (probable cause of boredom in the first place), they'll believe I had fun and just had some stuff to do.

    They make sense, but I'm not sure they fit the context I'm talking about. Namely, there are some people around that I would enjoy talking to on a smaller scale, but others are around who completely ruin the circumstances.

    If you get what I'm saying.

    Is there ever an opportunity to grasp at the beginning or end strings of a conversation, and make it your own, with those that you do enjoy conversing with? It seems, if it is larger, rather than a smaller scale party, that there would be enough conversation mates to go around, at least a few times, for everyone? I don't know if your boredom with the situation stops you from trying to seek out, or create, the opportunities for conversation that you would otherwise engage in (with those very same people), if not for the setting [the "other" people]. So, in a way, make the setting diffuse into the background. Focus on the 'interesting' people and try to find an 'in' for conversations that you do enjoy with them.

    don't know if I count as older or not... I'm closer to 30 than 20 though

    I have a billion, trillion excuses ready to get out of anything... if nothing else feigning a headache is always a good option

    Of course, being an attention whore, I tend to steer the conversation towards something that I find interesting...

    And for some reason I always get invited everywhere
