Loner - June 26th 2011, 06:06 AM

I've not been well making friends for as long as i can think of.
After my first school i left it with no friends at all to recall, and during my second school and sixth form, i pretty much left with maybe one real good friend who in the end, could not get close to.

I didn't make friends too well because i was a bit of a loner as a kid, i was very shy and didn't really speak to anyone, it put distance with some kids and i found it very hard to get into groups, anyhow now that i've grown i see how much of a weird kid i was.

The only idea i can think of, being me getting a job and the likely hood of me meeting people my own age in that being terrible.

I find im now very much trapped and a bit of a loner, aint really got anywhere to go, no way of meeting new people and i don't know what else to do. so yeah the one friend i did get close to was pretty much a nerd who would not get involved in anything, so i really do feel terrible and yet selfish for feeling like this, but i'm really feeling down and its been like this for a long time. i tried ever so hard during my first and last year of sixth form to make new friends and yet no one seemed to want to like me, i was stuck with the geeky group and it did put me off how they would read books and talk chitter chatter about stuff i hated, yet i tried to talk about whatever and be as talkative as i could, it didn't work and now im alone having finished sixth form.

Hey there.

I understand what you're going through. I had a similar situation when I was in Primary School, moving into Secondary school and losing all of my friends, although this sounds worse.

Seeing as you've left school now and I'm gathering, from what you've already said, that you're looking for a job or will be? Coworkers can become friends, but it really depends what type of job you get and who you're working with. But if an opportunity arises, don't blow people off because you're worried they could never become your friend.

There are clubs and activities for adults. Take a look at your interests and then see if there are any adult classes or groups near you. For example (although these may not interest you) my mum goes to a book club and a yoga class where she has friends that she otherwise wouldn't have known.

PM me if you want to talk about anything.
