    ...But the Times Are Changing

    I used to get together with friends at least once a week every summer, but now that everyone's graduated high school, we all work full, or almost full, time to help pay for college. The days I do have off are usually just spent sleeping in or wasting time at the computer. I feel...

    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...

    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

    Almost Forgot

    It's been so long that I've forgotten what it's like. The clubs, friends, fire pits at the beach, dinner parties, couples night out... boy it's been a long time. I'd even take a spa  day with my best friend. She once needed an escape so bad that she got a hotel room about 4...

    Housebound.

    These bad patches of health keep me confined to the house for months at a time, unless someone takes me out, and even then it just doesn't feel right. For years it was chronic fatigue. Now that has improved tremendously .........but I still get awful vertigo which makes...

    I Have Nothing To Look Forward Too

    I feel like life is absolutely pointless, I have absolutely nothing to look forward to, I have no good friends and I never end up hanging out with any of them.  The person I consider my best friend is very anti-social and doesn't like to hang out, and I just don't know what to...

    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...
