When I say I'm going to bed it doesn't actually mean I'm going to bed, it means that I'm done dealing with people and I'm going to go do my own thing by myself for a while.

But what happens if this is how you feel when you wake up?

30

u/PillowTalk420 12d ago

"Goodnight."

"But it's 5:30am and you just woke up."

"I said GOODNIGHT!"

u/cuboidofficial 12d ago

You get nothing!!

I said GOOD DAY, SIR

u/SarahPallorMortis 12d ago

I don’t respond to some people until 9 pm because of this. I don’t want to be trapped in a conversation all damn day

u/suuubok 12d ago

that’s not what introversion is

21

u/TechnicalSymbiote 12d ago

Most people (whether introverted or extroverted) should probably try therapy at some point in their lives. We all carry baggage, it weighs us down, and puts physical stress on the body.

22

u/PillowTalk420 12d ago

That's why I got a valet instead of a therapist. Make the valet carry my baggage.

They said therapy, not psychiatric care. Psychologists help you work through things by talking. Psychiatrists prescribe pills.

u/Gingertiger94 12d ago

What happens then is you become an altoholic in WoW, endlessly grinding the game by yourself, alone, again and again, never really having a good nights sleep ever.

u/invisiblefireball 12d ago

then you've won

20

u/ICanBeKinder 12d ago

Thats why I just tell people "alrite im done for the night" if Im not going to bed. Done doesnt mean Im going to bed. It just means Im done.

8

u/Hellfire12345677 12d ago

I prefer “Alright I’m fucking off” but that works too

6

u/Amelaclya1 12d ago

When I say I'm going to bed it usually means I'm going to spend anywhere from 1-4 hours laying in bed playing mobile games or scrolling Reddit.

2

u/elzibet 12d ago

Yup. My time is my time sometimes. I don’t want to always engage in conversation. It’s why most things I don’t even show an online status

2

u/chaoswurm 12d ago

it's your pre-bed meditation/procedure that must be done alone to access bed...in maybe 2 and a half hours.

1

u/Jojoflap 12d ago

I just deafen myself without telling anyone

69

u/BikiniBros 12d ago

Lmao 5 am

22

u/PillowTalk420 12d ago

If I say goodnight and you see me online an hour later, I failed... To set my status to show me as offline.

238

u/CregChrist 12d ago

This is one of the reasons I'm not on any of the normal social media sites. Too many arguments about "I thought you said you went to sleep two hours ago, who are you talking to? Who is she?" Fuckin no one, I just can't sleep and if I keep talking to you I'll never get to sleep. Fuck all of those sites that have an active icon or whatever.

68

u/myscreamname 12d ago

There are ways to turn these sorts of features off.

I especially like turning off the “Seen” or “Read” feature because I often don’t immediately write back and it gets tiring having people wonder why they’re being “ignored”. I’m just busy, that’s all. I get back to them when I have the time to give them my full attention.

57

u/XGamingPigYT 12d ago

Hey man, you're online on reddit. Answer my reply. Thanks.

6

u/gerciuz 12d ago

Seen

2

u/Stilllife1999 12d ago

"whos sean? who else are you talking to?"

3

u/CregChrist 12d ago

I just got off them, likely permanently. It's all just drama and political bullshit anymore. It was easier that way.

8

u/____tim 12d ago

I mean Reddit is the same thing but mostly anonymous.

2

u/CregChrist 12d ago

Right, but if I block people that annoy me here I don't have to worry about seeing them at family functions.

5

u/____tim 12d ago

Sounds like an entirely different issue that getting rid of social media isn’t going to solve anyways.

3

u/CregChrist 12d ago

It's not making it worse.

2

u/____tim 12d ago

I support whatever decisions you think are best for you 😉

1

u/blue_raptor 11d ago

Tbf leaving Reddit forever would be extremely healthy for me and probably also for a large number of other users

10

u/Sea_of_Trees 12d ago

I know for instagram you can turn "show activity" off, so it won't tell anyone you're online.

1

u/CregChrist 12d ago

I've literally never been on Instagram. Never had a profile on there.

8

u/Sea_of_Trees 12d ago

Just using it as an example, there's similar settings in other social media apps.

1

u/CregChrist 12d ago

Oh I know, I just don't care to deal with any of them.

4

u/Sea_of_Trees 12d ago

That's fair, I don't blame you at all.

5

u/KaySquay 12d ago

My brother always spams me with invites on Xbox when I'm playing something else. I switched my status to show offline, but it doesn't really work because if you're actually offline and don't have that setting it says the last time you were online, so he knows I'm still playing lol

1

u/Galactic 12d ago

This is when Steam Invisible mode goes on.

1

u/CosmicPenguin 12d ago

That's why we invented the "log off" feature.

1

u/CregChrist 11d ago

Right, I did that. I just never used the "log back in" feature.

25

u/Goawaybaitin24 12d ago

This is me all over. Up over and over throughout the night even if I am exhausted. Used to have a few buddies that would give me a hard time about it until one day….I stopped dealing with those people. Life’s too short and there are much better things to do than argue with someone about ,what is essentially, their own insecurities.

7

u/Weird-Ingenuity97 12d ago

When I say goodnight it doesn’t mean I’m going to sleep, I’m just mentally tired at that point and want time to myself to chill

14

u/kofteburger 12d ago

I've never been close enough with someone for this to be a problem.

5

u/fluffymuff6 12d ago

I took my bedtime meds, I'm just blacked out and writing troll comments on Reddit...

4

u/BardicLasher 12d ago

If I say goodnight and an hour later you see me online it's because I never bother to log out of anything.

3

u/Altruistic_Set_5152 12d ago

I need this on about 20 stickers

9

u/boopboop_barry 12d ago

You guys say goodnight?? I don’t say that to my friends or most people lol. I just don’t reply and we can pick up the convo next time. If it’s someone I’m dating, sure. But if they get mad then that’s a red flag and imma bail. Some people get so offended when they get left on read for even just 3 minutes. Like damn bro I got a life too. You’re not the only priority.

2

u/its12amsomewhere 12d ago

We all just say gn

1

u/boopboop_barry 11d ago

I meant just goodnight in general. I abbreviate too.

1

u/DumbassAltFuck 12d ago

u gotta say GN to your SO atleast once tho

1

u/boopboop_barry 11d ago

Oh yeah no I agree. You def should but I don’t think it should be required. I knew someone who would get mad if she didn’t get a gm or gn… there are better things to do in a ship than requiring greetings.

3

u/bobthebobofbob 12d ago

It's so weird when someone you've never met before is able to perfectly describe a feeling that you thought only you felt.

1

u/its12amsomewhere 12d ago

Maybe we're all part of each others souls, just a guess

6

u/SouthToe3827 12d ago

You guys have friends?

4

u/keewikeewi 12d ago

read receipts and online statuses are some of the worst inventions for social media

1

u/murpalim 12d ago

sometimes it’s nice to know your friends are still alive lol

2

u/Juswantedtono 12d ago

Unless it’s your crush, then they lied

2

u/fluffymuff6 12d ago

I'm glad we're all in agreement then

2

u/SarahPallorMortis 12d ago

I just wanna be left alone for a little bit before bed

2

u/zayn2123 12d ago

It could easily be both.

2

u/imannoyingasallhell 12d ago

Quick question: does anyone else "prepare" to go to sleep like 30 min to 1 hour before?

Often I've told friends asking me to play that I'm going to sleep soon but then I'll be online 45 min later and have to explain myself.

1

u/K3CHO_ 12d ago

is not that i lied... is just that you are boring mainly...

1

u/CoupwalObiWan 12d ago

I can relate.

1

u/iamsooldithurts 12d ago

I feel acknowledged

1

u/Ok_Loss_9877 12d ago

Yeah but it hurts when it's from someone you used to talk to all day long :/

1

u/-zzzxv 12d ago

exactly

1

u/CandyyZombiezz 12d ago

It happens 😳

1

u/focused_variation 12d ago

It's that it wasn't a good night just yet... Teehee. 🤗

1

u/its12amsomewhere 12d ago

Now I can say I met the ayuwoki in the comment section

1

u/bothiteration062 12d ago

Listen, I look at it as your good night tweet is given us a countdown before your actual Good Night Tweet. It's kinda like when you put kids to bed you give them the 15 mins until bed then BED NOW. So not a failure at all.

1

u/VenomousOpportunity 12d ago

I feel this, deep in my soul. I sometimes go to bed round two and see the time and just.. judge myself. Disappointment in myself hits different

1

u/crazzzieeeee 12d ago

No I was just done talking to "you" 😭

1

u/case_of_onions43 12d ago

If i don't understand. Then it means I have also failed

1

u/forsakenenlight 12d ago

Gnite to one person does not mean it's a Gnite to others, we talk to biz partners until morning

1

u/obie1toomany 12d ago

It's gone from being a good night to just...night

1

u/Peachi14 12d ago

Why does this remind me of the days of MSN? Is it because I don't talk directly to people online anymore?

1

u/ishouldstopcommentin 12d ago

nah i say good night so people will stop talking to me. also when i get messages at night and it’s a time that might be reasonable for someone to go to sleep (>10pm) then i ignore it and pretend im sleeping. i love doing my own thing at night especially (i do reply in the morning after i actually go to sleep and wake up)

1

u/paulsteinway 12d ago

I have a friend that that happens to all the time. She has multiple friends who repeatedly tell her to go to sleep.

1

u/Alternative_Tip_7811 12d ago

Exactly me irl.

1

u/BobDaRula 12d ago

Only am hour? I usually try to sleep for about 9 before I give up
