    When that can actually happen, it is a rare treat. A smorgasbord for someone who has been subsisting on granola bars and V8.

I seem to get most mileage out of somehow stumbling into "deep" conversations, but that is useless for networking and is extremely rare. Does that happen to you often, and what do you do about it?
    In such cases, you are probably talking to someone like me. I try to shut that sort of thing down quickly, unless I have some specific reason to pursue it. Now if you open with something more interesting than standard small talk, my curiosity is more likely to be piqued, and you will get a more substantive reply, with the likelihood of more.

    A break from my own mind.

    My friends seem to find me entertaining but the truth is alone I bore myself to crazy town. Perhaps one day I will make up some friends.

    I get high from interaction with certain people.
    They move me, inspire me, teach me things, make me laugh, change the way I look at certain things, it's a thrill to get to know them, understand how their minds work and connect with them on a deeper level.
    Frustrations from interacting with other people.
    They bring out a more agressive, angry side of myself. Darker aspects to light. A fuel for my cynicism. Eventually a reluctance to engage with them at all.
    And there are some people who bring out both the best and the worst.

    For me, it depends on the sphere of activity. Here (in VirtualLand) I love it; it's a room in which I can hover, overhear snippets of conversation and if there's something I think I can contribute to, well - have at it!

    If you were to translate that into a Real Life equivalent - uh-uh. I can't do it, on any level.

    What do I get out of socializing?

    Let's see. With some people, everything clicks. Conversations are effortless, as if in some fantastic augury, they can mirror your soul, somehow. A word leads to another, your thoughts are unfolding naturally, the flow seems to be unstoppable, in alignment and synchronicity, immersed in an amazing orchestra of sounds, producing melodies unbeknownest to you, your senses are aware of every note as the stream of inspiration dissolves within. A wondrous marriage you and I cannot fathom, that leaves us prey to fruitless analysis, vain prodding, until we realize, it's not something we're bound to understand, it's something we should appreciate, and so, we let it be, we cherish that gift.

    I also tend to enjoy expanding my perspective, sometimes I'm not very talkative at all when socializing, as it's often more rewarding for me to listen than speak...

    Burnt out.

    But. After the burn out can come new vitalization.

    I mean, I'm still an optimist.

    With me and friends it's mostly fun. We tend to undertake a lot of stuff together, a lot of walking around, going shopping, eating out, visiting musems, etc. Though that's stuff we do during summer, it's too cold in winter for that for the most part. So during the cold months we mostly visit each other at our places and what I get out of it is a nice chat with a lot of joking/goofing around. It honestly depends on the personality of the particular friend though, there are some I debate a lot of different things with, and others I mostly meet to undertake something and just have a good time.
