I was with you until I got to this line. I am reading this in the dark and about to type in the same mood lighting. I could definitely go days without any in-person contact and have a blast on a deserted island (with food and hygiene items of course). But I have been to so many music festivals and concerts that I have lost count. Part of it was being an entertainment reporter. The other part is I am comfortable around people I do not know and sometimes more than people I do know. You don’t know who the hell I am so there is no room (nor interest on my part) on judgment. Being in a room full of people I do know? That gets old fairly quickly unless I equally like everyone.

But I have said many times that I am an antisocial extrovert so I might be a happy medium between the two.
