Because I find it extremely hard to open up to people, I fear I’ll end up alone
I would say I have no real friends just acquaintances. They seem to like me and we have a good time when we hang out, but I’m usually sitting there, just listening, saying a couple things, not asking many questions, not sharing much… I just feel I’m a very boring person, and I don’t know how to talk - not even “small talk”.
As a result, I find myself lonelier as time passes, especially on weekends when everybody go out and don’t invite me. I don’t blame them, because I haven’t been able to bond too much with them. When I was younger (high school) I was shy and everything but still I had no problems making friends, I could talk to people, I just don’t know what happened to me, that now I feel very uncomfortable on one on one situations, even if I know the person well, because I just don’t know how to keep a conversation going.
I also find it extremely difficult to open up. I see on Facebook or Foursquare or such that my friends go out often but don’t invite me. And I feel even lonelier. But I never open up to them, I just find it so difficult. I like them, I just don’t know HOW to do it. Oh, and it’s very difficult for me to meet like minded people now that I’m just out of college and taking some time for myself, because there also aren’t any groups I can join that match my interests or new things I’d like to try… where I live people don’t really create groups to share interests.
