    Not That I Am Completely Socially Cut Off.

    I just don't have even half the social life I use to. Now my life is filled with case studies, housework, catching up with my partner and trying to relax. I do still see friends, just not nearly as much as a few years ago. - RDW

    Too Much Going On To Have A Social Life

    *sigh* Unfortunately, I am and have always been VERY social. I have been accused of being the "social butterfly" because I just love to meet and learn of new people, causes and ideas. I love to hear different dialects and languages and hear of other's differing and more exotic...

    I Happened When I Wasn't Looking...

    It may be a function of age. A side effect of my social anxiety and depression. And losing my job 4 years ago didn't help. However, by the time I did lose the job, I had no coworkers I socialized. You wake up one day and you realize, YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS. The acquaintances I do...

    I Stay Home All the Time

    I don't get out of the house nearly as much as i'd like to. The trouble is that i don't like going out alone and i don't have many friends here to hang out with. It's tough for me to meet new people in person since i can be a bit shy at times. I like knowing people online first...
