What does a person do with no friends.. - March 5th 2009, 07:27 PM

Im talking about me....I dont really have many friends & I have mentall illness, so it makes it harder. I mean, Im a bubbly, outgoing person, but I just dont have friends, Id love to have some & I get really upset seeing groups of girls hanging about by the clubs getting drunk etc.

Why am I not normal?

Hi there,(I wish i knew your name) lol

Plenty of people don't have very many friends, it's nothing to be ashamed of or feel disheartened by - it just means that you haven't found the right people yet; or they haven't found you.

Groups of girls hanging about by clubs and getting drunk, falling over and whatnot... seriously; i see that as nothing to be envious of. I think there are better places and ways to spend your time and to meet interesting people.

There is no real definition of 'normal' - what might be normal to you; may not be to someone else.

It's a good thing that you are bubbly and outgoing but that can sometimes be seen as too cocky or overly-confident which some people are threatened by.

Do you have talks with a counsellor? Perhaps it might be worth mentioning this issue to them and seeing what ideas they come up with.

Good luck x

It's hard to say without seeing how you act. When do you see people stop being interested in you? How do people act around you?

You do know, it does matter, and you don't want to wait until you're middle aged.

Hi there Jamie,

I think the best way to find local friends is by getting active in your community. Are there art classes or language classes you could take on weekends? Or maybe some activities are going on in the area that need some volunteers. That way you can meet people around your age.

This isn't the best thing to leave until middle age. It's better to at least get out there a bit and have some fun being social.

The girls getting drunk in front of bars are not what I'd considered your goal should be.

Nat.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
