    and not people you're close to?
    I feel so drained today. Various things cropped up and i just thought to myself that I'm not the type to run for people I'm close to when i need comfort. I let myself get lost in a crowd instead. Just meandering.

    Well, statistically speaking, it's difficult to drown alone. There must be some strangers out there, in some other part of the world perhaps, who are also drowning at the same time in those very waters. I mean, aren't all seas essentially connected, with all rivers emptying into them?

    Ah yes being lonely while surrounded by other people makes you feel even more worthless and unvalidated. Personally id rather not breakdown in public... and not let the feeling of being drained eat me for too long, you can do it! I hope you feel better sooon.

    I like to drown myself with fake people on the internet not real people.

    not really about breaking down but like unwinding and resetting yourself back to normal by interacting with stranges and doing normal and casual things

    Yep! Plenty of times! We just need to pick our choice of "drowning":
    • drowning in whisky
    • drowning in rum
    • drowning in moonshine
    • drowning in beer
    • drowning in wine
    • drowning in gin
    • drowning in vodka
    • drowning in absinthe
    • drowning in cider
    • drowning in cola-rum
    • drowning in margueritas
    • etc, etc, etc...
    You get the picture. :blobokhand::blobparty::blobsmirk::blobsip::blobReach::blobshh:

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmm... Not really? I like being with people, but when I'm tired, I usually want either to be alone or with the people I'm close with... If anything, I can waste a ton of time browsing random forums like reddit or gamefaqs just because I'm feeling bad and can't focus on work... >.>

    I feel ya. Like going to a coffee shop or a park alone and just being.
    Nobody knows you. Nobody expects anything from you. Not even conversation.
    There's people around, so it's not just you and your thoughts, but you don't have to be social.

    Nothing like "drowning" with strangers at a trance festival, with some uplifting music banging all around you. :blobparty:

    I want a classic bar where I can go when I am depressed and just sit there while the bartender gives me a drink without saying anything while he cleans his glasses.

    For a second there I thought you were referring to grabbing some strangers on the streets and taking them to drown with me in the ocean. :blobcat_hyper:

    Not really. Let yourself be surrounded by judging eyes? No way. I simply immerse myself with the stuff that comfort me: my hobbies.

    Sometimes I like being in a crowd that is totally of strangers
    I think that's also the beauty of travels? you go to places where no one knows you
    idk, it can be freeing

    I’m not sure what you mean, but I’m leaning towards being lost in the crowd. Personally, I don’t mind doing that because it’s fun to “people watch”

    No, I have mild mysophobia, so crowds make me uncomfortable. :sweating_profusely:
