I used to be counted on as the guy who was rational and not wild when the party got going. Think of Hank Hill from King of the Hill. That was me, the designated driver.

Your value is immeasurable. Safety guy is always welcome!

i bring no benefit, i am an introvert with social anxiety, you wouldn‘t find me in many group settings for very long...

In the short time you're there...smiles. wit, warmth, a good audience??
C'mon! I know you bring good things to the table.

I am always doing all the cooking and hosting....and I have a crazy memory for trivia and other information about a wide variety of topics so sometimes they treat me like a walking "wikipedia"....but mostly everyone wants me to proofread/edit their reports, letters, research, etc.

Fun fact: I made ton of money in college writing research papers for people for $25 to $50 a page with a guarantee of a B+ or better or full refund. I never had to give anyone their money back.

ME.

Well then, can you stop being so humble? ?

@AmiSue I am the only ME on this planet (and most likely in the universe) so that does make me unique (as it does you).

I usually bring mixed nuts.

Normally a benefit. In my house a cause of death.
Please bring nonsense in it's stead!

@AmiSue should I ever have the opportunity I'll bring something else. a big bag of nonsense would be good.

My fantastic fruit salads. ?
Fabulous conversations. ?

Usually insight and the willingness to listen. Sometimes it is ironic humor, dry wit, or some obtuse esoteric piece of information that no one has heard about before and doesn't really care about. This all means that my friends prefer the quiet introspective me that shows up at times.

Being a friend! What greater benefit could there be?

I am the non-drinker. And still able to do drunk stuff. Back in the 90's during the tail hunting days in Crete, I was called by some the "Pope" by my ability to communicate with foreigners and strangers, my expanded database about the world from art history and architecture to communism and musical taste. To others I was NightHawk. All nighter type. I was ruthless but effectjve. I could write "love letters". I can listen to any type of music except rap or hip hop. I could dance anything. I can stay up all night. The group will find use for me. Errr... you didn't said nothing about orgies right?

I usually bring the wine. Sometimes..... pie!!

Uhm... I... don't know. Erh... a willingness to look up the answer to the inevitable random questions that come up? Oh, and I'm usually the one who drives us to wherever we're going... Iiiiieeeee... I got nothin.

I don't even remember, I haven't hung out with a group of friends in maybe two years.
