Why are teens and young adults so obsessed with partying?

the more I think about it the more ridiculous it is to me. I know "it's fun" and whatever, but can't you find other things to do? not to mention most people that party only party with a party crowd. there are people like me that are really lonely and truthfully don't understand why. I'm a good looking kid, I'm smart, I have great style that is trendy but that actually looks nice and isn't trashy and that doesn't make me look like a meathead, and I have an awful lot to offer other people. I'll be your best friend, and to all the girls out there, I'd probably be the best boyfriend you ever had. all the freakin idiots girls go out with anymore...

i love music, I love people and socializing, but I hate drugs and weed and really don't enjoy drinking very much. I was talking to a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago, and he said that I wouldn't like parties, because people there aren't looking to really "get to know" and really talk to people. he said most girls at some of his college parties would find me creepy and think that I would be out to take advantage of them in my sobriety, which is the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life. (and drunk guys won't try and do the same? they'd even be more inclined to!) I'm serious, girls don't think. they're afraid of being the victim of some sort of sexual mistreatment, yet they constantly hang out with the guys that are more likely to do something, and feel that a put together guy is "out to get them". I'll never understand their thought process behind that. sorry.

i don't even want a fling or casual relationship. I just want to meet new people because frankly I don't have many friends anymore, but it turns out most people are so stuck in the ways of being young and cool and rebellious that they aren't even open to the finer things in life (I'm not saying I'm the best thing since sliced bread either, I'm saying I merely have all the best of intentions and there's a great person inside if people would just take the time to realize it).

and the fact that people are so superficial about their lifestyle anymore. I've always wondered why I'm constantly left out of all the fun. honestly, I'm happy and proud of who I am, and happy I'm not apart of the 80% of peers that have a completely backwards train of thought, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy being around these people, or that I don't want to be their friends, or that I'll judge them because they like to drink or smoke when I don't. I don't like it... doesn't mean I don't like them. I just don't understand people and their choices a lot of the time.
