I Am Socially Challenged

    These Days

    I used to make friends very easily, but lately I've been horribly depressed, and it just makes it so hard to talk to people. I've struggled with my self-esteem for years, too, which doesn't help. Basically I'm a shut-in now.

    I'm socially awkward and I am looking for a best friend who is also socially awkward. :) Deep conversation, talks about nothing, and other open minded friend things.
