Let’s play pretend. I’m going to pretend that I am a super social person. I don’t have social anxiety. I don’t have problems following through with social plans. I have get-togethers in my home where I grill, serve wine and beer, and everyone’s laughing and having a good time. We’ll pretend I have more than just a lot of acquaintances who have never been to my house. Saturday nights would always be bustling. My friends would bring their kids over and they’d play with my kid until they’d played so hard they fell asleep on the couch and their parents had to scoop them up and quietly carry them out to the car so they wouldn’t wake them.

Why are we pretending? Well, because if I had a social life and was throwing a party, this Greek Dip would be made several times for said parties and gatherings. Instead, this was my dinner 4 nights in a row…

Let me be honest here. The internet has ruined me in some ways. I’ve been exposed to the internet since I was about ten years old. My dad is a computer programmer, and we just always had computers. This opened the door to chat rooms, AOL chat, message boards, so on and so forth until I made it to this awesome world of blogging. I learned at an early age how to have conversations at the tip of my fingers rather than with my voice. I could “LOL” without even so much as a smirk on my face. I didn’t have to really interact. I didn’t really have to feel. I just had to type. Sadly, this is my comfort zone.

So today that leaves me with some of the best friends I’ve ever had, miles and miles away, all over the world, yet only a keyboard and monitor between us. There is quite a comfort in that, yet at the same time, it makes me feel even more awkward, which gives me even more anxiety to hit the “publish” button on this post.

Although I may not be hosting any BBQ’s this summer, just know that if I was, you’d be invited, and I would be serving up this amazing Greek Dip for you all to enjoy. Layers of hummus, tangy Greek yogurt laced with fresh mint and cucumber, and topped with my favorite Feta cheese and tomatoes. It comes together in about 10 minutes, and it’s easily gobbled up in less the time. If you’re hosting a party, you’ll probably want to double this to satisfy your guests!

So tell me. Do you host BBQ’s throughout the summer? Or are you more of an attendee?

Also, please tell me I’m not completely alone in my social weirdness…

    You’re not weird. Here lately, I attend more than I host. I’d like to host more, but can’t find the time. I love your dip. I heart hummus and tatziki sauce. I never thought to combine them in a dip. I’ll have to try this VERY soon. Thanks!

      Oh yum, I love homemade salsa! Definitely better than store-bought. I hope you do try this out too

    I would totally come over to your house for a get together if we lived in the same city! 🙂 This dip looks amazing and I love Greek yogurt!

    This looks fantastic – I can’t wait to try it! And I am totally that socially awkward person who everyone thinks is snobby when really I am just too freakin’ shy to start up a conversation!

    • Holly Waterfall says

      yup, exactly! I’d much rather sit and listen to everyone. Definitely a better listener than talker. And my anxiety doesn’t help matters – the whole time people are talking, I’m trying to figure out how to word exactly what I want to say perfectly… and then when I do finally speak, it’s all jumbled. Oh geez, I’m kind of a mess lol!

    Aww… I’d love to invite you to my house for a party! If you bring this delish dip! 😉

    I would love for you to share your creativity at my Show-Licious Craft & Recipe Party! We go live tomorrow morning at 8 am EST!

      I’m pretty sure I’d need to bring a doubled recipe of this dip because it’s just THAT good!

  1. […] Yesterday I talked a bit about my social anxiety (or we could really just call is social awkwardness). How the majority of my friends are online. How it’s always been that way since my early teens. How I really have no clue how to meet people. And then even if I meet people, I really have no clue how to convert said people from an acquaintance to an actual friend. By 30 years old, you’d think I’d actually get it by now. I mean, even my friends online are mostly acquaintances. There are very few people who I’ve really been able to make a connection with and am able to call them my besties. […]
