To come to a site like this you need to have the intention to make it work for you.You can develop a good circle of friends and there is a feel good factor about EP.By moving sites all the time they will feel cold and alien.
don't notice how lonely you are.
I was fine being alone before I noticed and not afterward. thusly, to be okay with it I have to stop noticing. unfortunately, I can't deceive myself. maybe you're not so unlucky
You have anxiety? Do you go out for walks? I started that years ago. I would start with a short stroll around the block. Then, I went further and further away, to explore parts of the city I knew nothing about. And now I do it another countries too, if I get a chance. When I walk, I admire architecture and stop to browse in shops or other buildings. Sometimes, I meet people and have short but interesting conversations. I do all this because I like to write but I find it very therapeutic. A good diet also boosts my brain so I don't feel down too often.
If you don't love yourself, no one else will love you. When you love yourself, to be alone will be OK.
Build a strong network of friends....work friends...community friends...social clubs...things like that. How do you meet people? Well....start at work...being really friendly to people. Then, try going to church and go to all the social events. Then look on Meetup.com and see if there are any clubs that interest you and try to meet people that way. Take classes and lessons, like dance lessons.....and go to dances, especially. You will end up meeting so many people!
Find some hobbies.
Don't be alone for too long, meet people.
What you need is a common concern or a common attitude with some people that may then become friends.
