Well I've come to enjoy not having friends, but I still hate the way my parents and other people expect me to be out there living life and partying, it only makes reality even more depressing :P if I had the money for a motel I might do the same.. Or just sleep in the car for the night. I think I know what I'm doing this weekend... ;)
I'm a pretty weird mofo myself, but the first thing I could tell you is that you need to find like-minded individuals. You don't want random jackass sons o' bitches as your friends; you want people that have your back and shit. Throwing money at a hotel won't get you anything but a drained wallet.
It's not that simple actually. OP could be socially awkward. He may not have any connections in his life to be able to make friends. He may have tried to make friends but people may have disregarded him. Also, if he does find friends it doesn't necessarily mean they'll want to party.
I have been there myself, but we can only blame ourselves. It is up to us to find some person to interact with, and hiding the issue, especially to yourself, doesn't help.
Ive been there to. I think everyone has been there once or twice. But once I started trying I realized its not really that hard to find friends. Even people who are considered complete "freaks" at my school have people they sit and talk with. You just have to find someone with the same interests as you. Now go and get some friends OP!
I've been there, its all up to you sweetheart just go out and make friends. It may be hard to overcome the social anxiety, but if your over 21 go to a bar and take a shot of whiskey then nurse a beer and gain some courage to talk to the person next to you. You're the only one who can change your situation.
You have to stay out all night to prove you have friends? Wouldn't it be much cheaper to go to a movie and come home late?
Bars and clubs are about the worst places to go if you want to interact with people, even if you already know them; you can barely see or hear them. If you don't already know them, there's basically no chance; maybe you can overcome shyness enough to say hello to a stranger once, but not enough times for them to actually hear you, or even if you do there's nothing to talk about.
Not all bars are loud. Just think of "Cheers". I bartend and will say it's a great place to socialize, even if you don't drink. I have lots of guests that only drink iced teas and order an appetizer or two. Bars are a great place to meet people from all walks of life. I rarely see guys "hook up" with the ladies but the bond between long term friends are tight! Even dance clubs have spots where you can go to get away from the loud music. (:
