Growing up I was quiet and reserved. I still am but not nearly as shy. I've had friends over the years but none that are true enough to stick around during the rough times. I am 23 and my friends consist of old friends that I only communicate with on Facebook which isn't much activity, and acquaintances at work. I work with a bunch of older people though. I can't be friends with guys because I think they're awkward and I just don't feel comfortable with them. I find it hard to make new female friends unless I have a romantic interest, even if I know no such relationship can happen. I don't mean to be picky, but unless that interest is there, when I am hanging out with them I feel like I am wasting my time. If I have a romantic interest but am perfectly comfortable with not building that sort of relationship, I still don't think it a waste to hang with them. Even if I am picky, I still don't meet new people very well.
