Re: I'm just a ghost

I can't do gyms. Feels like everyone is staring at me and judging me. I know that's just my anxiety, but still... I even feel that way when I jog outside, but not as bad. And it just feels unnatural. All the people running on treadmills creeps me out. Yeah, I know I'm weird.

I’m weird with you. I don’t like exercising in gyms either.

Re: I'm just a ghost

No, it's not you. People tend to go out in couples, and or with friends on new Year's eve, they are generally not expecting or looking to meet anyone new on New Year's eve, they're just out to socialize with established friends and get drunk. I often made the same mistake in thinking about the holiday when I was younger, and then learned it was not a good idea for a single person to go out alone on that day

Re: I'm just a ghost

I know I tend to do better in one on one or in small group settings, rather than in an overwhelming roomful of people. Not everyone has to be a social butterfly.

Can you find two or three people and go out with them? Like, maybe coworkers or neighbors, some people you regularly see and at least somewhat like (not necessarily close friends yet). Then do a non threatening activity you can all enjoy and doesn’t require constant conversation. Like, maybe go bowling or mini-golf or something. Or if you like table games or movies, have a game and movie night.

I do so much better at outings like this, because you are doing something together that’s fun, but you don’t have to worry about focusing on long conversations, so it matters less if you zone out for a few minutes.

I can just picture myself sweating on the treadmill with "eye of the tiger" playing in the background..... Nobody needs to know I was sweating buckets after only a couple of minutes.
