What to do when you are boring around people

When im around people, ESPECIALLY who are the same as my age, i find myself not participating because i have nothing interesting to say, while they can talk about anything they want. i can talk to younger people because they're childish and they respect, and older people because they're serious and more compasionate, But people the same as my age are ****ed up, (im 22)all they care about is sex, drugs.. they see me as that weak nice guy. it's very hard to fit with these kind of people. How can i be less boring?

Welcome Manup

We'd love to give some advice. Personally, I'm just hoping our advice wouldn't be too generic to help with your particular situation.

In what context have you come to be associated with these people your age? For example are you at college or in work? Are these your circle of friends, or just people within earshot?

Also, I wasn't sure which was correct out of the following two points - whether people your age can talk about anything or if instead their topic choice is limited to what some would call "vice" topics. Both situations would require very different advice if you wanted to fit in better. Even if you do believe they only care about sex, drugs etc... does this really mean that they don't talk about they did in the weekend, any plans to travel etc?
