I think you should just be you. Your friends are obviously older than you and think its cool, but if you dont like it then dont join them. If their your real freinds they'll accept your decision. :) Maybe you guys could do something else.
I say DO YOU! There are just to many followers out there! We need more LEADERS...people tat DON'T do things just because their friends are!!.you sound like a smart young man...trust YOUR instincts NOT your possibly drunk or high buddies!!!!
If you are not into that lifestyle, that is perfectly fine. It is just your personal preferance. Just because you do not like partying doesn't mean you are unsocial or unpopular, it just means you are more introverted and reserved. Don't worry...it's just your character. You are prob being more ethical and moral by staying out of extroverted activities.
Be yourself, there's nobody better at being you. You've got a lifetime of parties ahead, enjoy what you like, peer pressure is the test of are you a man or a p*** be a leader not a follower-you'll go further in life
Just be you. Don't follow in your friends steps. Do what you want and maybe you can ask your friends to do what you want for the day eg. Bowling, making crafts, video games etc... They might discover your favorite activity is fun. Do what you want. You don't have to copy everything your friends do just to be cool like them. If you really want to go with your friends to a party try one party first and if you don't like it don't go to anymore parties. :)
Alex, your greatest power is the power to choose. Choose wisely and you have a way better chance of a positive outcome, choose unwisely and you have a way better chance of something bad happening. Be yourself and keep all that "following the crowd" stuff to minimum. And think hard before you make your choices in life. Choose wisely, and best of luck.
Your freaking awesome for being yourself!!!!!!Be yourself and NEVER get sucked into the crowd!!!!!!!! Plus a lot of bad stuff usually happens at parties like drinking and etc.if you rather just sit at home and do whatever you want then that is perfectly fine.
My friend's is like that too. IT'S OK ! Your not the only one ! & doing that doesn't make you awkward or anything ,It's just your character. Instead , for a change do this. Instead of you doing what your friends want to do. Do the opposite, ask them to hang out and do something you want to do. You want to be join them to get close to each other even though you're not into their likes. So they should do the same. They are your friends? yes. So they probably won't make it a problem. Remember you're not forced. If you don't want to, you don't have to.
