I never can go out and meet new people. I haven't met anyone new since high school expect at places I work at. I'm too socially awkward to make conversation with new people.


Loser quota: My best friend is a person I met and talk to online more than 200 miles away that I never met. In fact, I know more people online than I do in person.

/fail.

That makes life boring and lonely and redundant. So lame.


Sorry, that is my pity party for the day.

Just cause you socialize more online doesn't mean you are a social reject. Most of the people where I live are utter d**kheads.

just talk to people it's really not that hard. i've been in the same state as you, but as of 2 weeks ago I said "**** it" and started talking to people. I ended up hooking up with a girl i've been crushing on for a long ass time.

If emo scene chicks still exist at 22 I would love to find one and have a conversation with one. I like them.

I haven't played it in forever. I remember one of my best (bear in mind this was a few years ago and my skills are much, much better now) was around 3 hours on hard.

Join a gym. Do regular exercise

A) You might get talking to people at the gym

B) Generally getting into better shape etc boosts self esteem and stuff.

Every once in awhile I'll have a conversation with someone at a bar. But that's seldom, I mostly end up just talking with the bartenders. Not that's that is bad, they are pretty cool and all, but nothing leaves that place.


I don't know, I just think it would be nice to have someone to see on a regular basis. Perhaps of the opposite sex too. That would be wonderful.

there are advanteges to ur situation. people aren't judgin u, u dont have to keep track of people, u dont have to keep ur friends happy, u save $. etc.

being more social may help, but it has its problems too. i know plenty of people with tons of friends that are the most lonely people in the world.

THIS....... will not work.

There's nothing wrong with having more friends online than in person. Just be yourself, if you wanna try and get more friends in person. Music is a good way to do this, generally people with the same taste in music, get along fairly well (in my experiences).

go outside... walk around, do something you like.

True, I need to find people who like what I like. But it seems hard. I don't know why it is so hard. I don't think I like things no one else likes, just maybe things that make people harder to find maybe?

You can't get less socially awkward without practice. Also, the second you start showing self-confidence people notice that, and even if you say something or do something awkward, you'll recover a lot faster and everyone will move on.

Experiment with alcohol, marijuana, ecstasy, whatever in public. I was extremely socially awkward since 6th grade until a few months ago. I started smoking weed and met a bunch of people. You will learn how to notice simple things and make big conversations out of them. And you can always talk about fun times you had.

See, my only friends I had that I smoke a **** ton with and were like my best friends moved back to their homes on the other side of the state. So ugh! That blows, I haven't found anyone else who I want to smoke with or anything anymore.

No other solution has ever worked for me other than this illicit plant. One thing that all humans have in common is that we all have THC receptors in the brain that need to be stimulated.

I can't emphasis how wrong this is Why would yuou turn to something that could put you into more depression and social arwkwardness (sp)?

Trust me (i know that sounds stupid, tis the pit, no one can be trusted) alcohol, marijuana, ecstasy or anything along those lines WILL NOT HELP

See, I knew it. Just get a NORML t-shirt or something and go to school, people will notice, and you will soon have a bunch of new people you can hang out with.

Get one like this.



You will occasionally find idiots that want to bash you for smoking, but just tell them "I tried to get high on life, but it got cut with morons."

Incorrect.

Alcohol has been a good friend of mine and the only time I have socialized with people. I go to the bar like once or twice a week after work, and I sometimes I have conversations with people for a short time because I'm drunk enough to not really feel as scared as I usually do. I met some really cool people once at the bar, haven't seen them since though. which is sad.

Go shopping, to the gym or whatever and make small talk with people who you think youd like to get to know, worst case, they shrug you off but then youll probably never see them again so it doesnt really matter.

Personally though, i think you should find a hobby that you really enjoy and eventually youll find people who share that hobby.

Yes it will, well maybe not E because most people don't want to go past basic drugs, but besides the socialization enhancement effects that alcohol and marijuana give, it allows serves as a point for which many people from different backgrounds/personality types/etc. can bond.

Ecstasy will help if you have trouble wanting to talk to a specific person though. Start rolling and it will be easy.

I know the people I smoke with better than my family. It really does allow you to get introspective on many aspects of life that you otherwise would normally be blind to.
