I like spending time with people, but I find it exacting on my strength to actually a copious amount of time with people, copious in my definition. I can entertain someone for around 2-4 hours a week, but honestly? Any more and I just want to be left alone. This applies to online friends, discord, etc. How on earth am I going to manage a romantic relationship?

The longer I've known someone, the less patience I end up having for them and the quicker I get socially burnt out. I am not sure why this is, but I've always noticed it. Even when they're joyful and objectively "pleasant" to be around, I will get annoyed with them, because I just want to be left alone.

Group things quickly burn through me, so I end up leaving a day or two after joining.

Perhaps the mystery gives away to familiarity and you get bored of the person. You yourself appear to dislike most people for appealing to base desires.

I get burnt out incredibly quick too. In fact, I pretty much reached my breaking point yesterday. I recently transferred at work to a different department, and the group of ladies I work with are so freaking exhausting and act like a big bunch of overgrown children. I thought they were all fairly pleasant at first, but now I'd like to find a quiet corner to hide in.

Anyway, I sometimes reach that point with my family and friends too, and they all understand that I just need to recharge.

Online I do for certain people or types of conversations. Generally I like conversing online. Typing is easier for me.

Offline an hour or two total of talking a week is normally my threshold. I usually split it between my family, coworkers, and my therapist.

This is definitely my life story. I really love to engage in conversations and love to have fun and games yet I don't like to spend much time with people especially outsiders. I get socially drained easily and that reflects on me pretty much. If I -forcibly- spent much time with others I get so irritated and exhausted.


Let me quote a book I was reading about "Introversion":

"Introverts are like a rechargeable battery. They need to stop expending energy and rest in order to recharge." So, yeah, people like us should recharge often so we don't get sucked dry and go mad.

i can only tolerate 5 people (that i'm not close with) at a time.
any more than that and i feel exhausted and mentally stressed.

being around my closest friends does the opposite tho.

I can't stand people, but I can talk for hours if you ask the right questions. Other than that I just love silence, good music, and my creative mind So kindly fuck off

I'm exactly the same. I remember hearing there are two types of people in the world: those who are drained by being alone and regenerate by being in the company of others, and those who are drained by the company of others and recooperate by being alone. I'm the definitely the latter. I don't mind being around people, but I don't like doing it for hours and hours on end namely because I A. Don't have much interesting to say, and B. It gets in the way of me getting on with other things.

I try to budget my time mainly for "me time", and then use the rollover time from the previous week for other people

Yes, I'm an introvert. I need time to self recharge after set hours. Extroverts on the other hand get their energy from other people (energy vampires). They wilt without company. I've two siblings who thrive on long parties (the longest ones 3 days). My idea of a good time is up to 4 -6 hours after that it's time for a change. Today I've been taking some German teens on art galleries tours. We managed to fit 3 of them in plus a riverside walk. Now that it's evening and we're done I've said my farewells. I'm currently relaxing having "me" time.
