Hitting close to home

A few days ago I decided to once more start EvE again.

I’ve been doing this a lot the past couple of months, way too many times. This partly due to other games, and partly because I never seem to play the way I should.

I join a corporation and then just sit there waiting for action to come my way. Wrong, I know, whatever, I’m trying to change, I really am!

The other day I stumbled upon a topic on /r/eve that hit really close to home. In it, the OP talk about being a shy guy, unable to make friends in space. The reason why this hit close to home for myself is because I feel the same way from time to time. I usually play games with my RL friends, but unfortunately none of them actually like EvE, so I go out and try to find a place where I might just belong.

I hit it off with people and then just, stay quiet. I know that this is my own fault, and I should talk to people, should go on roams etc. But for someone who isn’t a fan of being on TS the whole time something like this is extremely hard.

But the topic was an eye opener for me, and I’m going to try and change that about myself. Say hi more often, maybe even make a few friends that I can fly with.

In case you want to know which topic on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/3vma5b/i_am_for_the_lack_of_a_better_word_conflicted/

Stay tuned o7

    Dude, is hard…. Im telling this as a non native english speaker in an english speaking corp. What works for me is being in a small corp that in time gets to know you. Also in wh, we are somewhat free to do as we’d like. But yeah… Ts is mandatory.
    Best regards, keep the great writing
