    Social activity preferences that don't revolve around food or drink

    Anybody got any?

    I personally could just live in a cave and eat, train, study, sleep repeat but according to my significant other this is not "normal" behavior and I should get some sunlight lmao (her words, not mine).

    Usually when I'm on a strict routine alcohol/fried foods is completely cut out and social opportunities become minimal because of it.

    Currently all you can eat sushi once a month and the movies are our go to haha - curious to see what everybody else enjoys doing!

    My girl tells me the same thing. All i want to do is lift, go to to jujitsu, and ride. Im so content training alone that i guess she thinks its weird.
    I usually go on my boat alot in the summer months. I seem like i never want to go out but i live on the water and have everything right here so i dont think im the weird one. You are right tho, without food and alcohol there isn't much to do socially.

    Having your own boat seems awesome I would love something like that. Would have to probably stick to the lake though. Tried to go fishing with my step-dad last year in the ocean and just puked my brains out the entire time hahaha

    I'm abstemious and eating socially it's not my cup of tea, disregarding the lifestyle. That's probably why I got no friends lol. Used to but got bored in that all friends want to do is go out and drink.

    Playing on recreational sports teams was my main social interaction for years. Currently training so much at the gym that I dont have time for a team.
    Does steroid forum count as social? I mean I do spend a lot of time in the anabolic lounge

    I cant deal with the ocean either. I stay in the bay, which here on long island is huge so you dont get bored. Bays are always much calmer than the ocean. Lakes are awesome for skiing though.

    Unfortunately there are few good entertainment venues out there, I agree on that. I like playing pool, relaxing on the beach, BBQing, making a fire on the beach at night and BBQing. It does lead to drinking but I never had issues with this, just drink in moderation. Problem is everything I listed is unavailable except for pool. When you BBQ it doesn't have to kill your diet either.

    I think it reflects society. More people want to have some cool named coffee, overpriced, and in a cheap paper cup. Same ingredients as the other coffees but the ratios are a little different.

    I got into photography a few years ago. Nothing serious just with my iPhone but I enjoy it. Goes well with my outdoor cardio (hiking, bush walking, etc)

    Found a pretty good poker group. If money wasn't an issue I would live either in the mountains on some godforsaken corner of the world or in the artic circle.

    Im avoiding going to a bbq this weekend that everyone is going to including my mrs. Id rather go to the gym and go home and eat. Id probably go to jail for curb stomping one of my collagues because they will all be drunk and trying to socially interact with me.

    Yup, yellowfin tuna. One of those was about 115-120 lbs and the other is around 90 lbs. each of them took about 45 minutes to reel in. Your body is done after catching one of those for about an hour or so. The back pumps are insane!!! Here is a pic from a different trip, last Saturday night

    I can eat Seafood (crab, mussels, shrimp, octopus, etc) but any fish = one way ticket to the hospital. Basically if it has fins I can't eat it.

    Also means I can't use fish oil supplements

    I use to be allergic to all nuts as well - grew out of almonds and peanuts atleast. Get healthy fats before was a nightmare, was limited to basically olive oil and eggs.

    Suggestions:
    Billiards, arcades (idk if there is a dave and busters near you), escape the room, indoor rock climbing. Take your girl to a paint night for bonus points.

    I would love to get into shooting and a gun club. Going to require applying for a LTC and most likely appealing the denial and hiring a lawyer. A lot more work and time than I have at the moment
