    Do you mingle freely with Boring people?

    People have different perspectives of life. Interesting people  show you positivism what do you think about boring people?

    Maintaining a good raport with persons of different nature reflects a very positive side of personality. Such person's mingling with other does not depend on opponents behaviour, no matter in what mood they posses. With this principled reply I can say that if one takes initiative to meet persons of negative traits such as the case here he would be benefitted in two ways:
    1) can learn how to cope up with such persons
    2) can accompany a person already in the influence of negativity and help him overcome.

    Sometimes I think I am boring. I work and so on the weekends I am so tired and have cleaning, laundry, shopping and what ever else. When my husband and I are invited to hang at a friends house I usually don't want to go but do. My husband is a very social person, but he is unemployed at the moment. So when a chance pops up to do something or go to a friends house he jumps on it. All our friends drink socially. I do not drink at all and often feel left out. Sure we are surrounded by social people, but often the conversations are about our jobs, grandchildren or medical issues. We try to have every Sunday as family day when the children, grandchildren and mutual friends come over for dinner. My husband does all the cooking. This is nice, but exhausting because once everyone leaves my husband lays down (after all he did do all the cooking) but now comes the enormous clean up. Sure everyone helps before they leave, but a house full of people still makes a mess, especially when young grandchildren come over.
    My idea of fun is a going to dinner and a movie. I have had movie tickets given to me and my husband from last Christmas. I am still waiting for him and I to go. His idea of fun is cooking a large dinner and inviting the whole family over. I love seeing the family, but once in a while it would be nice to let someone else serve and clean up. So I guess my husband might think I am boring, but really I am just tired and would rather go out then stay home. Does that make sense DDE? My job is also very fast paced and by Friday I am exhausted!

      ''but once in a while it would be nice to let someone else serve and clean up.'' I so agree with you. Having your plate taken away  must bring such a great feeling of  satisfaction to yourself. Thank you

    In my experience, a person is usually boring or interesting based on the company he/she is having at that time. Sometimes, people who are considered boring by others may just be introverts who open up and become interesting only in their own comfort zone. On the other hand, few people who are always seen as the life of a party may actually turn out to be boring when you are having a one-to-one conversation with them.
    I think it all depends on whether we share any common interests with a particular person, in which case we may have plenty of things to bond over, which in turn makes the company worth keeping.
    Personally, I don't restrict myself from mingling with people based on a boring first-impression, because many of the times, there's much more underneath that boring facade than meets the eyes.
    Of course, there are those hopeless loners who really don't or can't mingle, even when the other person makes a sincere effort. Well, maybe such people should be best left alone.

      Great answer! Meeting people and to get to know them more is a way to open up further to better communication.
