I Have Problems Making Friends

My social skills are dead! 215 People

    When I try to make a new friend,

    I don't really know what to say or how to start, and that is a problem that I always had. I have a few friends, but I think they don't really appreciate me. Any advice?

    I used to be the type of girl

    who walks to the beach with music blasting and then I get there and I sit there for two hours reading a book and listening to the waves. But recently things have changed and I've been volunteering at this haunted house thing and I get to scare people and I've met some great...

    Not As Easy As It Looks ...

    Sometimes I ask people the question - How do I make a friend ? and they look at me with a blank expression on their face. They might be wondering what kind of question is this. It might be easy for some but it's not for me. I have been attempting to make friends since 1st grade...

    I feel like if someone were to approach me,

    I'd either stumble over my own words trying to be polite or be a complete *******. Whichever happened, I'd end up without a friend .3. Oh wellps

    I'm a Magnet For the Bad.

    I always attract the wrong sort of people. Not bad people necessarily, just people who I usually don't talk to after meeting them for the first time because we just don't get along. Maybe I give off the wrong first impression or something? It usually takes me a while to...

    So I had a really bad day last Fri night

    and it was like every thing was coming to a point. Point of frustration I guess you could say. I work in an assisted living overnight with one other person each shift. Last time it was one of my fave coworkers and I was horrible company. He wasn't helping with being in a...

    hi there, I've had a problem

    Self Conscious

    Late one night I was sitting in a small study area at college and while I was ignoring my studies, I noticed him for the first time, he was sitting in a reclining chair with his laptop on his knees. It was just the two of us, and suddenly I felt a little awkward because I had...

    It's Hard

    I find when I first meet someone, I have to work hard to find things in common with them because my interests are a little non-mainstream. If I do find something in common, I tend to put up a wall so they can't get too close. I guess I'm afraid of how they'd treat me if they...

    I really want to make more friends, but I never know what to say to people I don't know. It takes a few weeks for me to fully open up to someone, but not that many people are patient. Or they think I don't wanna be friends with them by then. I wish it was easier to talk to people...

    I Want to Attract More Positive People to Me

    I want to connect, it's just so difficult. I have plenty of acquaintances, and while that's nice, I wish I knew people I could talk to, learn from and laugh with. I wish I had a friend I could trust and rely on. To me acquaintances are different than friends. They are people you...
