Default I Can Socialize, But...

So I'm willing to be social now. I think it sounds fun and positive. But I'm not willing to get close to people besides me bf and close friends. Not interested in new friends. Just socialize for the fun of it/distraction, being around positive people momentarily. The minute there's any drama from you (because I'm not gonna fuck up, I treat people how I want to be treated), I immediately cut you loose, immediately and permanently.

Is this okay?

This makes me smile. You can be whomever you like, it's not for the rest of the world to say...

A disfrutar nomas!

Socializing seems fake. Like deep down, the person and I might hate each other. Forget it.

Yes, it can seem fake but one good thing about socializing is that you get to know if you like the person or not. If you like the person, then feel free to socialize with them and if you don't like them, then it's 'bye bye' to that person.

And socializing can be nothing more than having coffee and chatting about general stuff with that person. No need to bare your soul to that person (unless you want to of course).

And if the person you don't like is a co-worker, then just limit your exposure to what's necessary. After all, work is not a social event. Merely a pay cheque.

Hope this helps.
