I'm 36. In the past I always made friends though work, and school. I am now a boss and can't make friends with employees. I also am working online for my current degree. I don't like the bar/club scene and I am not one to walk up to people and just say hi. I've decided to seek therapy and right now having a hard time finding one. All my past friends have seemed to move on, they've coupled up, have kids, moved away or we just lost touch. I guess everyone with social anxiety suffers the same paradox. You want to meet people, but you don't know how to start the ball rolling. Just another brother here struggling with the same thing.
