I wanna live a little!!!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I am still pretty young (20) and I want to do loads of things in life, but I've hardly got anyone to do them with.
Don't get me wrong, I've got loads of mates, but they're not as out-going as I am, or they're too committed to their girlfriends or jobs etc.
The most I can get out of my mates is the weekly pub crawl followed by the usual club. Maybe a few games of bowling, cinema, or snooker during the week, but thats it (and even these things are starting to die down lately as some mates go off to uni, or commit to job/girlfriend etc). I enjoy doing these things, but at this young age, I want to do more!!!
I want to go clubbing in other cities. You hear of loads of people (especially on radio) who travel around the country going clubbing to big events on weekends. I've only ever been clubbing in my home town.
I want to go to festivals.
I want to go to concerts.
I want to go and visit other cities, or even countries during holidays. It's not expensive. A return to London only costs about £15, which is about how much most people spend on a night out.
And much much more as well!

Basically I am a very ambitious and out-going person who wants to live life to the fullest, but I've hardly done anything in my youth.
Does anyone else feel this way?
I've thought about advertising in a newspaper for like-minded people, but then again, that's kinda sad ain't it?
Basically, my mates are kinda boring (either that, or I'm too ambitious), and whenver I do meet other people, they're the same.

    Know what you mean. My mates are brilliant and very ambitious too - but sometimes you just get restless and acquire that itch for something new, something more. I've just realised I've got nothing to show for my time alive so far, so I kinda know what you mean.

    Go and travel. Save up money, pack a bag and go. You can go alone, you will meet people out there and you'll have the time of your life. My ex went to Europe on his own for a month with just his rucksack and sleeping bag and met so many people and had an amazing time. I'm planning on doing it once uni is out of the way (or possibly even this year if I don't get into uni).

    Life is what you make it, so go and create yours. :)

    Hell if i didnt live thousands of miles away from u, i wud go w/ ya! but all i can suggest is, dont be afraid to go out alone or with one of two cool people and MEET NEW PEOPLE. if your mates are too busy with other stuff and u wanna go out and party- GO FOR IT! dont let your commited and not outgoing mates bring you down. You only live once, so have fun!! I KNOW there is people like you who want to find some ambitious people to party with, keep looking. its not gonna be easy as pie but thats why it will be worth it cuz you'll be having an awesome time while your mates are staying boring and committed. you can go to festivals, and concerts and clubs, but you dont have to keep going with boring friends. i did and still do feel the same way you do. My mates are pretty uptight bitches. Dont ask me why they r my friends. I think after a while i got really sick of them cuz we were only friends because everyone thought we were too stuck up to talk to. But anyway, i totally blew them off and started calling people I knew wudnt be afraid to have a good time with me. soon, i met friends of their friends, and friends of their friends and now i can hang out with all kinds of different and fun people. Its just a matter of how brave you are to get out of your comfort zone.

    I am a very keen backpacker specialising in Third World countries. It's absolutely incomparable, and it obviously enables me to better understand and appreciate each country that I visit and the world in which I live. In addition, it enables me to experience truly brilliant things whilst furthering my knowledge of religious architecture (mosques, temples, gompas, etc), plus a huge number of other things. It's brilliant! :D

    PM me if you want to chat about this.

    Mr Doughnut that sounds wicked what you do. I would love to do something like that one day (maybe when I'm in my mid 20's), but at the moment, I want to travel for the 'fun' side of things, instead of the 'educational' side.
    Do you travel alone, or do you have a like-minded friend to travel with?

    It is for pleasure and I do get a lot of fun from it, but I also learn a lot whilst doing it.

    I tend to go alone but I am willing and happy to go with a girlfriend/wife.
