I'm kinda the opposite. I don't like going out to eat at all but when I go out to a store or something, I kind of like it better when there are more people (except they're always in the damn way). I like to disappear into a crowd. I don't think people notice you as much in a crowd. I feel more exposed if I'm the only one there.
In case of emergency, my husk can be used as a flotation device.
