How do you deal with when people ask about your social life?
I hate it when people ask stuff like this. It is probably one of my worst fears. I feel like Iím going to get Ďfound outí, that people are going to find out that I have almost no social life and from that work out that I am a looser. That might sound stupid buts itís a very strong feeling I have.
At Christmas with family this is the major thing I worry about. I probably would hardly be nervous at all if it wasnít for this. Iím scared someone will ask if I have a gf or where I go out or if I am involved in anything at uni. Luckily no one has ever actually asked any of these except the last one, and I just awkwardly said Ďum.. noí and changed the subject. What would some good answers to these be? Ie, answers that donít make me look ridiculous.
I am also going to catch up with an old friend who I havenít seen for about a year, and Iím scared that he will ask something like this, or ask me who I hang out with at uni or something like that. Because I know there are people he hangs around with at my uni, but I havenít met a single person at uni yet, there are just some people from my old school who I say hi to sometimes. I have this feeling as if everybody who goes to parties and stuff all know each other, which is probably a bit wrong although to be honest I have no idea. So I feel like he is going to be able to tell from any fake answer I give that I do not socialise with anyone at uni at all, let alone if he brings people from my uni along with him. What should I say in this situation?
