I Need to Get a Life


I do get out quite a bit but its never for entertainment purposes. I go to school, take my son to the doctors, go shopping for the basic necessities but never for anything recreational. I don’t have much of a social life other than the one I have created online. I am really too shy to try to create a real social circle and I fear rejection. I am a very nice person and I think I am easy to get along with but I still feel that others don’t like me or want to be around me. I have a few really close friends, but we dont really like the same exact stuff to get out and do anything together. The other night my husband took me out to see Rodney Carrington and I felt out of place, I enjoyed the show; it was funny as hell but I just didn’t feel like I belonged there.

My going out to socialise is going to the supermarket, and if the girl at the checkout counter says, 'how are you today', then thats it. My socialiseing is complete for another week!

I have tried that but a lot of it is that when it comes time to do stuff they either back out or something comes up and we cant.

its hard. but maybe what you should do, is try doing something with one of your friends that you don't usualy do, and then you suggest the next thing you guys do, whether its going to watch a movie you want or eating at your favorite restaurant. its not fair to you to not do anything with your friends because you don't have the same interests. its ok. it gives you a chance to experience new things, and you can introduce them to things that interests you.
