As of about two or three weeks ago I moved about 3,000 miles away from my friends I've had for about 8 years now. I graduated in January so that, sentimentally, I could remember my last days of high school with my best friends. I've been looking for a job where i live now, (mainly music stores and book stores) but no one is hiring. I've been basically sitting inside for weeks, and to make matters worse, i rarely get to talk to anyone of my friends. Their either busy with work, family or their boyfriends/ girlfriends. I can't blame them for carrying on with their lives, but I'm mad they can't make an effort to contact me. I sit inside all day and watch T.V., play guitar, and sit at the computer.


So basically...
*No friends.
*Don't know the city.
*No job.
*Not in school.
*No drivers license (Even if I did, I wouldn't have a car to drive.)


How would you suggest I get a social life, in my situation? Anything would be appreciated. *I'm not saying all this for attention. I am really desperate, hence asking you.


Thanks.

Trust me once you get a job things will start to change for the better, as you get to meet lots of new people and will easily develop friendships. Just give it some time man.

Alcohol + gigs (local bands etc.) = lots of friends.

How about this,

Moving is a part of life! Get the **** over yourself and get out and make some friends! PUt a tampon in and grow a pair!

And threadstarter, just keep trying to get a job. Job=money as well as people, money and people give you a life.

basically get a shit job and when you have time apply at the places you want to work and when you get hired there, quit the shit job. After that you can make a few friends at work and meet some girls.

Thanks. I could try looking other places for jobs, I just don't want to get to far away from my age group. I tried movie stores too, but no luck so far.

Do you need money? Why did you move?

Just go play at a music store for an hour until somebody comes up and talks to you. The other day i went into the performing arts center and played piano until a teacher came and talked to me about piano lessons. Mind games FTW!

Well, if you can't make friends at gigs with just your personality, or as party animal. You're doomed.

My dad got a new job. He's like a director of Golf, so there's only certain courses he thinks he can work at. Basically because he doesn't want to sell his reputation short of itself, i guess.
