Coaster enthusiasts? Nah

I kinda, not really, hate to bring this back up but why is this the case with a lot of us? I know at least 70% of enthusiasts I have encountered have been kinda "different" in the way that when it comes to things other than coasters they kinda don't know how to blend in. I have met some cool coaster folks who actually do things other than coasters but they are rare.

It is hard to blend in, especially when you see people who can rave about football and video games with their friends and yourself being the only person you can talk to about rollercoasters. When you try to get your mum and sister into rollercoasters and they get so bored they eventually start being sarcastic and yell at you. It especially all comes out when they have drunk a bit. Then other people around you call you sad for knowing lodes of rollercoasters. Then you become totally isolated . This is why you then get socially awkward as that is what happens when you have nobody to talk to about the one thing you can confidently talk about. Which could explain your statistic of 70% of coaster enthusiasts being "different" when they talk. Confidence is further lost in one's self when they notice in themselves how badly integrated into 'normal' society they have become, leading them, and who they are, to be backed up into a metaphorical and mental corner of their mind. A dark place.

 

This is why being banned for a month totally sucked.

So you aren't interested in anything that your friends's are interested in? No sports? Nothing?

Also if you were banned for a month you could got to Clusterfarce. It's nowhere near as good as TPR but it can still work as a substitute.

I got into European Coaster Club. I don't know why but CF seems kind of creepy. No offence but some of the people look like they would pay so much money to go on that boat just to see a coaster closer. ECC is good though.

It's hard enough having coasters as one of my interests, can't imagine how it would be if it was my only.

 

Some tips:

1. Act like you're not "interrested" in coasters, but rather really really like riding them (most people love coasters so they can identify more with you).

 

2. Talk about the most interesting coasters you've ridden, rather than the best ones (people don't give a damn about the "best" coaster, they wanna see the tallest, fastest and scariest)

 

3. Drop your "GP"-goggles. If someone isn't into coasters theres no way that they would know everything about them, so theres no reason to correct them about things they say wrong unless in a "did you know..."-way.
