Are You A Boring Person? 10 Signs You are Boring The Hell Out Of Everyone

what makes a person boring

You’re not supposed to care what other people think but let’s face it…..

no one wants to bore the hell out of other people or have a life so uninteresting that even you find your life boring. 

So why are there so many boring people out there walking around and how can YOU be LESS boring?

Enter Madame “M”—> An extremely boring person.

We all know someone like Madam “M”. She’s a very nice lady but she has no clue that she is boring and no one has the heart to tell her either…….

If you see her on the street, you discreetly turn around and walk the other way.

When you speak with her, all you can think about is how to gracefully leave.

Madam M could be anyone. She could be you, me, your mom or an acquaintance of yours. 

I started wondering, If she has no clue that she is boring, am I boring too and what exactly makes one person boring and another person NOT boring?  

Yes I worry and care about these things and obviously you do too otherwise you wouldn’t be here….

10 Signs You Are A Boring Person

I did a bunch of rather unscientific research to find the answer to my question on what makes someone boring:

I read a bunch of articles and books on the topic of becoming a more interesting and engaging person.

I also asked a bunch of people what they thought made someone boring and others not boring.

I even conducted a bunch of  experiments applying what I learned to see if I could be less boring and more interesting to others.

Below are all my findings condensed into the top 10 things I think make a person boring. Are you guilty of any of these?

1-You Talk Non Stop About Things That Only Interest You.

Are you a boring person: You talk about boring stuff all the time

Sign: No one likes to be on a one sided conversation and nothing screams BOOOORING more than talking non stop about subjects that other people couldn’t care less about. Like the weather or how paint dry’s.

Usually this type of person requires no response. They just start talking and talking with no end in sight.  The listener doesn’t even need to respond. They can just nod their head and say Uhh huh, uh huh. 

Solution: If you notice that you are doing all the talking and the other person has gone quiet then stop talking.  Try to engage the other person and ask them questions and just listen.

Conversely, if you are trapped by this boring person, there is not much you can do except excuse yourself abruptly from the conversation. Another tactic might be to change the topic to something equally boring.  Good luck…

2- You Are A Total Downer

to be a boring person you should be totally depressing all the time

Sign: Let’s face it, no one wants to be around downers.

If you’re the type of person who constantly sees the glass as half empty and you talk about really depressing things all the time then you might be depressing and boring at the same time.

I once knew someone like this. I tried to make it work but I was exhausted by our relationship. I had to constantly lift her spirits. Whenever I met her, I was always sad, or sombre and rarely laughed.

Examples of depressing conversation killers

  • “Oh Annie, I wish I was smarter”
  • “Life is so hard”
  • “why does everyone hate me”?
  • “I have no friends”.
  • whaa whaa whaa, oh woes me!!

Solution: If you know a downer in your life, the best you can do is either be blunt with them and tell them how they are depressing you. If you are like me, you will try to be there for this friend for as long as humanly possibly  to support that person. In the end, if their negativity is effecting you than you might have to end the relationship or distance yourself from that person like I had to do.

If it is you who is this type of Debbie downer, consider changing your outlook on life.  Being positive in life will also help lift your spirits. Try to see the positive. What’s that old saying? If life gives you lemons than make lemonade?

3- You Are Really Uptight And Overly Serious

to be a boring person you should be really uptight all the time

Sign: Fun people like to laugh, tell jokes and let loose. It only makes sense that to be really boring you have to be and do the opposite.

This type of person is super RIGID and worried about PROTOCOL. God forbid if they ever let loose.  Here are some examples of really uptight statements.

  • “I’m too mature to do that”
  • “What are all these damn kids doing in this park”
  • “Someone needs to shut that kid up” ( on an air plane during landing a baby is crying)
  • “Don’t bother falling in love, it all ends up in divorce anyways”

Solution: Let loose have some fun. You’ll know you are having fun when you laugh and don’t care who sees.

If you know someone who is uptight and a buzz kill than try to lead by example. Sometimes your upbeat and fun attitude can be contagious.

4-You Complain About Everything

to  be a boring person you should complain about everything

Sign: This type of person sees fault in everything and is not afraid to let you know.

There is no joy or fun in being around someone like this because you feel like you have to walk on egg shells around them.

Here are some great examples of what a complainer might say.

  • “The music is too loud” (it’s almost at the lowest setting)
  • “what’s that horrible smell? “ It’s butter, garlic and shallots in a white wine sauce.
  • “Stop walking on the grass, you are crushing it” (It’s a pique-nique area)
  • “You eat too much”
  • “you never eat” (the next day the same person said this to me)

Solution: I have no idea how to handle this type of venomous personality. In my experience, this person is out to make themselves look or feel good by seeing the bad in others or putting others down. I usually try to be very careful around this person and I try reducing the amount of time I spend with them. If that is not possible than have a good outlet to recharge and re-boot.

5-You Never Try New Things or Travel To New Placesto be a boring person you should never travel Ever

Sign: Fun, non-boring people tend to do and see a lot of new things. They talk about those things and are so filled with joy because their life is so satisfying.

A boring person doesn’t do much outside of their necessary routine. Work, eat sleep. It’s hard to talk to someone who hasn’t had a lot of experience outside of their normal routine.

Solution: The solution is simple. Get out and do some stuff. Anything. 

 6- You Never Ever Smile

Boring people never smile

Sign: When I think about people who are fun in my life, I picture them smiling, laughing and just being jovial.

When I think of someone boring, I picture scowling faces and furrowed eyebrows.

Which one are you? All Smiles or all Frowny?

Solution: Just smile. I learned a long time ago that the simple act of smiling can lift someone’s spirits.

Smiling is also contagious. I have smiled at scowly faced people on the street and to my surprise, they suddenly smile back.

I once had someone stop to “thank me” for smiling at them. Try it, it really works.

7- You Are Super Predictable and Never Spontaneous

You are a boring person if you are super predictable

I love seeing life through my children’s eyes because like most kids, they are naturally curious and seek out new experiences.  Well, it’s also fun to be around adults with these qualities. Not only does it make you less predictable, you can also become more spontaneous and less likely to do the same thing day in and day out.

Contrast that to someone who is ALWAYS predictable and nothing new ever happens to them.  No one will ask “Gee, I wonder what so and so person is up to”. They won’t have to because they will know that you always do the same thing every day. Now that I think about it, isn’t that what a rut looks and feels like? Who wants to be in a rut?

Examples of some ways you can be predictable are…..

  • Everything you do has to be planned to the “T”
  • You always take the practical safe route in life.
  • You say NO more than you say YES

Solution: If you are this type of boring and predictable person, do more things you would not normally do. Start right now. Go and find something new to do and just go do it. Say “YES” more. Stop planning everything. Now go.

8- You Work All The Time

Sign: When you make work your life’s purpose your almost guaranteed to be a boring person because. Who wants to hang out with someone who enjoys working more than they like laughing and having fun. I’m all for working hard. Hell, I work my ass off but if that is all I did, my own family would probably disown me.

Solution: Spend more time outside of work. I’m not talking about vegging outin front of the T.V. like some tired overworked couch potato. I’m talking about living your life to the fullest and doing all those things you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet. Don’t let work define who you are.

9-You have No Hobbies

to be a boring person never do anything new

Some hobbies put you in contact with people who are passionate. Hobbies like sailing, golfing, even board games. That passion transcends into your daily life and inspires you to pursue other hobbies outside of working, sleeping and eating.

Solution: Get a hobby. Then meet other people who enjoy that same hobby. There are lots of clubs for various hobbies you can join. Just look online or in your local paper.

10-You are A Hermit

TO BE A BORING PERSON BECOME A HERMIT

A hermits life is not only very sad but it’s also uninteresting, monotonous and plain.

A hermit is a slave the the four walls of their house. Never experiencing all that life has to offer.

Solution: Get out there and live your life.

FINAL WORD OF ADVICE..

TO BE LESS BORING IS EASY. JUST TRY SOMETHING NEW

It’s easy to be less boring.

It just involves a little change and an adventurous spirit.

Yes, you may have to go a little outside of your comfort zone to try new things, meet new people or see new places. But it’s worth it. give it a try.

One baby step at a time. You can start small and do something new everyday.

Before you know it, people will call you “THE FUN ONE”

Awww what a sweet post! My biggest irk is when I talk with people that lack passion. Or their only passion is to complain. Ugh that can be rugged.

Hobbies is where it’s at. I feel like so many people forget that having hobbies is what makes you interesting!

    David,
    Are you mocking me? I’m trying to be cynical here. :) (sarcasm)

    You are right, complainers really are a buzz kill and hobbies do make people more interesting.
    YOU have a very interesting hobby fixing motorcycles. Not just any motorbikes, awesome vintage motorcycles. Is it the same model that James Dean Rode?

People with those types of qualities are definitely no fun. Although I’m sure we’ve all been there to a certain extent, as humans we have our good days, and bad days. However if you were to implement one or more of these habits into your lifestyle then you’re in trouble.

    Vitaly,
    Welcome so glad you stopped by.

    I agree most people HAVE been there and been that person. The example i give is at the extreme end of B-O-R-I-N-G. But it could happen to anyone very easily.

    Hope to see you back again….

Vitaly Tennant

Understandable, yeah I try to distance myself from booorrrriiiinnngggg people too.
There are tons of great posts here … you’ll see me around.

Chris Barba

Yup! That about do it. The textbook formula to a boring person – the threshold to…the dark side. Perhaps a little dramatic, but I loved your approach on this one Annie. As I read it, and could relate to something, I would think “uh oh, I don’t want to be relating to Madame M.”

So in tribute to your blog I am taking it and throwing it down the cyber shredder!

(really enjoyed this read)

Cheers!

    Annie Andre

    Chris,
    I like that “The Dark Side”. I really do believe it is all too easy to go to the dark side. I’ve encountered so many people in my life who complained about their lives, how boring it was. How they feel like they are in a rut. I would relate to them because i was feeling the same way. Until i woke up.. LOL.

    Thank you for the tribute… Bzzzz crunch that’s the sound of the cyber shredder.

    Cheers, The end of boredom

Benny

When I started reading I was thinking oh i hate #1. Then I read #2 and said oh that one too!! The first four I cringe when I meet people like that. I know someone who has interesting stories but a 1 min story turns into 10 mins and I’m not listening anymore and just nodding! It’s torture!!

But I hate complainers too. Complain about the dumbest things!!

Your post reminds me od a character on Saturday Night Live called Debbie Downer. Heard of her? Go on YouTube and see if there are any clips. It’s funny.

I love love love the pics of you and your kids!! Especially the one of you and the littlest one!!

    Annie Andre

    Benny, i just saw Debbie Downer and it was hilarious.

    Isn’t it strange how some people are so unaware of themselves and how they are effecting others. Like you example of the person whose story turns into a 10 minute rant.
    You don’t have that problem. You blog posts are so thoughtful and interesting..

    Cheers Benny :)

Frank

Annie,

How nice of you to write a post to teach people to be just like me. :-) I knew you like me but not this much. lol! I love the spin of this post because I can easily look at my own life and notice a few areas where I might be a little boring.

I would share with where those areas are but then the world would know my secrets and I refuse to give them up without a fight. The pictures helped too. Nothing like seeing smiling faces to change your day. Great article.

    Annie Andre

    Frank,
    Who are you kidding. I’ve been to your blog. YOU are not boring. LOL.

    I was feeling persnickety when i wrote this post. It’s my dark cynical, smart all-icky side showing through.

    But really, who isn’t guilty of being a little boring and less than adventurous? I think everyone has a little of Madam “M” in their lives. And that’s ok. But not all the time everyday right?

    p.s. the family pics were fun to include. My family is my inspiration and a source of frustration. :) i’m sure you understand…

Blake

Your next post needs to be about how to disengage from a conversation with the likes of Madame M. Of course, it’s hard to learn to barf on demand.

    Annie Andre

    Hahaha, i can certainly fake a seizure. Or do i run the risk of starting another conversation?

Rob

Hey Annie,
I tell my children and wife that I’m always guaranteed a good time as long as I’m there:)
It really can be a downer to talk to complainers and gripers. I try to fix them, and it seldom works, so I just run along on my merry way. Our family is getting ready to embark on an RV around the States and then travel abroad…now, to get this internet thing working.

    Annie Andre

    Hi Rob,
    You are a stronger person than i am. I have a soft spot when it comes to disengaging from gripers & downers. I’m working on it though

    The Rv thing sounds like so much fun. We looked into it for the summmer. We were going to drive up and down the east coast from Montreal to North Carolina but then we saw the prices of renting an RV and said never mind. So we’re just staying in NOrth Carolina for a couple of weeks and then looking at a long stay in France.

    I agree, need to get this internet thing working. I hope its not broken.

Martin

Love the post and especially the pictures! I find myself bored as soon as I hit on someone who lacks the passion or drive in whatever we are talking about. But I think everyone has their own passion which drives them to be “interesting” like your weather lady Madam M. The magic happens when we fall in accord with the same passion, and thats when it becomes interesting.

Martinsays: Thanks

Christian Hollingsworth

Oh yes, oh yes – I know a few Madame M’s. I’d recommend Madame M take a look at your blog for advice, but maybe she’d find herself out then?…lol

The advice to smile is fantastic, and hopefully most know that they need to stop talking about the weather so much. That’s no good at all. That just means (scientifically speaking) that you can’t think of much to say to an individual.

Now you’re making me speak conscious. Actually, never mind, I think I’m okay. Wait, are you judging me? No, okay, I think I’m good. lol ;)

Dan

I love this kind of post! I’ve often encountered these Madame M’s and it’s always the same… for some reason or another we are too nice to say, “I don’t like speaking with you, so I’m off!”

I once saw Jim Rohn (a motivational speaker) and he said that if people are getting too deep into #4 that you can just draw them in by saying, “that must be terrible” and other similar things. Finally, when you can stand no more, say “Well why don’t you just die then?”

It might seem harsh, but actually it can really help to drag people out of their negative pit! In order to continue the conversation they now have to give you all the reasons why they should stay alive – they have to be positive!
Dan recently posted..I am FantasticMy Profile

    Annie Andre

    Hello Dan,
    Nice to meet you. I chuckled when i read your comment. I like your advice about asking someone “well why don’t you just die then?” if they keep going on and on about negative things. i see how it may force them to be positive and come up with reasons why they shouldn’t die.

    I’m going to give that a try. Thanks Mr Dan, The Cracking confidence coach.

      Dan

      Use it wisely! I recently used it on my Nana (who is in a home and dying very slowly and stubbornly of cancer – she was given 6 months almost 2 years ago!) who is the biggest moaner, complainer and worrier in my life!

      I allowed her to go on and on about her aches and pains (all minor and trivial I have to add) and finally I looked at her and said, “I’m surprised you even bother going on at all!” There was a deathly hush in the room as the rest of my family wondered if I’d really asked it… my heart pounded inside and she seemed to take an age to respond…

      Finally, with a little twinkle in her eye she smiled and laughed, and then spent the rest of that day in a state of relative happiness. Unfortunately she’s back to her usual self, but I know that when it gets too much, I have that bomb to drop once more!!

Hi there Annie!

Great-great-great post! This was fun, and funny (great photos)!

One of these really stud out to me…

5- Don’t try anything new.

5a-When it comes to food, I’m cool with what I like. I don’t like what I don’t like and I don’t see a need to try new stuff. I’ll try a new seasoning on my steak..but I’m not going to start eating sushi just because it’s “the in thing”. Just because some people eat Monkey brain – doesn’t mean I’m gonna try it. So, in this category, trying new foods – I’m sooooo boring! I admit that!

5b – Every business trip I go on everyone is so focussed on the nightly activity. I never am. I like to go back to my room and jump on skype with the wife and kids. That’s my thing.
Well, every biz trip people want to go out, and always assume that I’m going to go. But I never do…but everyone else always goes. this leaves me looking like the boring guy!

So, I had to admit that I can be a little stuck in my ways in this category, giving me the boring stamped right smack in the middle of my forehead! I own it!

This was a fun one. Again, great images!

I hope you’re enjoying the weekend Annie!
Jk Allen recently posted..These are the Tales- When the Smoke ClearsMy Profile

    Annie Andre

    JK,
    If going home to jump on skype to talk with the family, rather than going out with co-workers is considered boring, then consider me boring too.

    Actually I take that back. I don’t consider that boring at all. You’re priorities are with your family. You choose to do things as a family with your family over going out. NOT BORING AT ALL.

    As far as trying new things, well…..I think everyone is adventurous and takes risks in their own way. We all don’t have to go about it the same cookie cutter way. I am a foodie and love to try new foods. I have friends that are daredevils and want to try skydiving, bungee jumping, Kite Surfing. It’s not for me. That’s what makes us all unique right? I’m sure you try plenty of new things all the time. I’ve never talked to you in person, but having read your blog posts, i’m pretty sure you’re the kind of person that likes to try new things with the kids all the time…

    Thanks for your comments and your support JK. hope to see you back soon.

MummyinProvence

This is hilarious! OMG! When I first moved to France my French was non-existent so I entertained conversations with the likes of Madame M to build my language skills but I quickly tired – what a MASSIVE mistake! I now have to wear a disguise in the village so to avoid contact with the few Madame M’s I entertained back in the day! Love, love this post! Rings soooo true in France and other places I’ve lived too!

    Looks like you and i have the same Maladie. Disengagement. I just cannot for the life of me break away from these torturous conversations. My husband tells me he wants to buy me a can of mace because i am a weirdo magnet but that is another story…

Paul

Hi Annie,

Couldn’t help but check out your blog because it seems like I keep seeing your comments everywhere I go.

haha I love this topic! Encountering Madam M sounds worse than contracting the plague.

I really don’t like to hang out with people who are really rigid and inflexible. Pretty much the same as your #7, these people become so set in their ways that spontaneity just dies around them

    Annie Andre

    Hello Paul, Nice to meet you. Wherever could you be hanging out? Hmmm :0 I’ve been reading alot lately and always love commenting on peoples blogs.

    I’m totally on board with not hanging with rigid and inflexible people. I’m always working on ways to mix things up a bit. I still have my comfortable routines that make me feel good, but trying new things and just letting go sometimes and trying something new can be exhilarating too.

Meg

I love this! and your family is so precious. You look like you have a lot of fun together and they seem to be the complete opposite of boring. I hope one day when I have children they will live and lead adventurous and fun-filled lives. I agree that having hobbies helps keep the creative juices flowing which leads to lack of boredom. I got rid of my cable TV and I thought I may become bored or sick of reading but I LOVE not having TV. I love that my conversations with friends and coworkers is not focused around the latest sitcom. I love that I don’t feel guilty for missing my favorite show. I will have to figure something out come football season but for now I am enjoying the extra time and fun I have. Continue living your adventurous life….it’s inspiring.

Samantha

Wow, so me! I had a feeling I was boring my friends and family and so instead of asking “Am I boring?” as that would likely result in people giving sympathy and saying “No, just find new friends”, instead I wanted to know of it really was me and how I can change so I searched “My friend is boring” to see what people found boring… This is all me by like 90% as people don’t avoid me, I oddly avoid people as I’m afraid I’ll be boring. I didn’t realize what I downer I was and how much of a hermit I am. I have been complaining a lot too and wondered if that was a factor. As boring people don’t mean to be boring–I’m sure like me, they would change if they knew.

    Annie Andre

    Samantha,
    I wouldn’t worry too much. I used to think i was so boring too. I would avoid people for the same reason as you. What i find that helps is to take a genuine interest in others. When you meet someone, new or an old friend. Ask them about their life. Don’t criticize them, try to see the positive in whatever they say. you will find that by exuding this positive and ccaring behaviour you will begin to have energized coonversations with others and people will love to spend time with you.

aman

i was just getting bored, then i googled ” i m getting bored, what to do? ”
then i saw ur link, boredom just vanished after reading it. really anyone can become boring after inheriting even one of these qualities. :)

AWESOME

hhahahaha wow you’re like, funny and stuff, right?? The best part of this is when you reiterate what every other person in the world says a lot. Really though, this topic is pretty catty. Thanks for making shy/people with social problems feel defective! That’s just great. Sweet. PS. do you know anyone with asbergers? you basically describe the syndrome when you talk about “mme. M”.

    I guess I must have aspergers and so does my son because A lot of this applies to me. So do i find it funny? No, i found it debilitating.

      Annie,

      Your article is rude and insensitive. Unlike you, I don’t try to be something I’m not. I used to be very shy. I overcame this when I got older. People respect me for being me, and no, I do NOT put people to sleep. I get on with loads of people. You should be ashamed for making people feel small. Someone people are talkative, some are not. Shy people do exist and if you find them boring then that is your problem lady not theirs. How you find time to write spiteful articles is beyond vile. Get a life.

      Annie Andre

      Thanks for taking the time to write this comment.
      How do i find the time you ask? Well, boring other people was and still is a stigma that effects me. So in effect writing this article is kind of therapeutic for me in that it helps me help myself while helping other people. Sorry if you were offended by it but that is ok because I cant please everyone all the time but I do my best not to offend people and to try to help people by using personal experiences.If i help just one person who is like me than i am ok with that. If i offended you there is nothing i can do about that.

      And to be honest your comment is kind of hostile and vile and all I can say is “different strokes for different folks”.

      Have a wonderfully non boring day!!

You’re only boring if you don’t like yourself. I can’t think of anything more boring than someone trying NOT to be boring for others.

I like to wear the same clothes. I don’t worry what others think. I could care less.

I like watching tv. I like my routines. If you don’t…meh. That’s your problem for being so predictably “spontaneous”.

Give me a break folks. It’s your life. Live it how you like. If you want people around you, clearly you have to listen to them and connect with them in some way. Other than that….meh. Seek out other so-called boring people and just be happy.

    Annie Andre

    Bill,
    thank you for your valuable input. Obviously you are very happy the way you are. So you don’t need to be reading other peoples point of view.
    although i don’t state it in this article, a lot of the things I point out are things that troubled me about myself. And as far as my routines. I love my routines but i also love to live my life to the fullest. We are all allowed to live our lives the way we want. I know i am..
    Thanks

anonymously me

i do like the article… went through each and i should say that i am not a boring person, but it’s the other way around… not all, but frequently i meet people that do not interest me.

1-YOU TALK NON STOP ABOUT THINGS THAT ONLY INTEREST YOU.

– maybe i do in a way, but that’s because i’m not interested with the sand and the beach and OMG love & relationship (that over a minute i’d puke) but spark me an interesting conversation about business, psychology. i just prefer “brainy” convos over mundane stuff.

3- YOU ARE REALLY UPTIGHT AND OVERLY SERIOUS

– i am serious and uptight but i laugh a lot – at logical humor, not slapstick.

5-YOU NEVER TRY NEW THINGS OR TRAVEL TO NEW PLACES

– i’d love to, but i don’t have the privilege of time, compared to my lesser income generating peers who don’t even own a business (makes me wonder why they do it when they have to run it on credit cards… i can pay cash, but i don’t)

7- YOU ARE SUPER PREDICTABLE AND NEVER SPONTANEOUS

Wear the same style clothes, listen to the same music, eat the same food, ALWAYS. – sorry, it’s called preference.

Everything you do has to be planned to the “T” – because i am almost OCD and i hate disorganized and untimely people

You always take the practical safe route in life. – because that gets me to where i am now

You say NO more than you say YES – i say YES when it’s logically reasonable.

8- YOU WORK ALL THE TIME

– unlike some people i have a dream. some want a family and kids. i want a maserati, lugagges and luggages of vuitton that some cannot afford in their entire life unless they pay credit. and whoever says money can’t buy happiness, who says poverty can? and they can call me materialistic, vain, self-centered all they want… i have it, they don’t.

9-YOU HAVE NO HOBBIES

– of course i have. so as long as it doesn’t get myself dirty. i love jewelry. that’s a hobby – and a cash on hand. i may get lost in the carribean and know i’d get back home in no time.

I just want to say….I may be the ‘boring’ person you are describing. I also have Asperger’s Syndrome and I am shy as fuck to top it all off. Having a routine keeps me sane as I also have deep anxiety and social anxiety issues. But, my passions are interesting to me even if they’re dull to someone else. I’d like to step out of my comfort zone one day, or at least once in a while but I have anxiety issues as I said.

What about people like myself with social disabilities who find it hard to meet people let a lone DO stuff with them? I struggle day to day with this along with the full awareness that yes, I may be ‘boring’. I’ve been called the dreaded ‘B’ word before and even a few relatives think I’m ‘boring’. I know my sister and her friends think I’m ‘boring’ and none of her friends would ever date me. I have ‘disabled’ marked on me since being diagnosed with AS over 10 years ago.

I struggle just to ‘get by’, financially and socially. I can’t just ‘hop a plane’ to Timbucktoo tomorrow. Anxiety. Time. Resources. Part of me never chose to be like this.

    Hi Astrosleuth,
    One of my sons has Aspergers syndrome also so i understand your struggles. I think that being boring is subjective. I am not a doctor but I know that for my own son who has aspergers that it helps to keep him engaged with activities that he enjoys and excels at and with people who have similar interests. There is no fix really except to just be who you are and accept your limitations. I find that i myself am boring at times but i am ok with that. I do my best to be the best person i can be and that is good enough for me. Not everyone will find me interesting but others might. Hope that makes sense..to you..
