Thank you, I do agree with you but it’s so hard as we are a very friendly company and quite small. If you don’t socialise you stand out like a sore thumb. But the thing is, bar one, they’ just not my kind of people.
My manager is keen to strengthen the team I think which is why she keeps suggesting these nights out, I think she knows I find it hard to communicate with them. The only reason I find it hard is because they are so rude and uninterested in anyone’s situations but their own and I can’t be bothered with people like that.
If I don’t join in I will alienate myself and I fear become even more withdrawn.
