There is certainly nothing wrong with wanting routine in your life and having control over your plans and goals. However, there is a thin line between being in control and taking everything so seriously that you become boring. People tend to associate with lively individuals who bring out the best in them – not with those they find boring, or with whom they barely have anything to talk about. If you are concerned about this issue, read these seven signs that you may be a boring person, and what can you do to change that:
1. You Are Happy When Your Friends Cancel Plans
Have you noticed that lately you started to feel happy when your friends cancel plans for dinner or for going out on Saturday night – when you used to enjoy spending quality time with those close to you? We all have our moments when we want to spend some time alone, watching TV and eating junk food – and that is perfectly normal. However, if you have started to spend more time alone than in the company of your friends, this may be a sign that you are becoming a boring person, and you should do something about it while you still can.
2. Routine Has Become a Major Part of Your Daily Life
Do you like to order the same food, visit the same places or go to the same bars and restaurants? Are you afraid of trying something new, and you would rather stick to the things you are already used to? Trying out new things (be it a trip to a foreign country or simply a nice new restaurant where you can take your significant other or your friends) is exciting, and can prevent monotony from taking over your life. If you would rather stay at home and order takeout on a regular basis, this is a sign that you are becoming boring.
