Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I moved to a new town 6 months ago, have a great job, a roommate I like but I still feel lonely cause my coworkers and my roommate are the only people I consider friends. My roommate has been hanging out with her boyfriend a lot recently and my coworkers have lives of their own. I don't like going out to places by myself because it's really out of my comfort zone but I guess I'm going to have to suck it up and start.

  • I'd just tell them about it. Your roommate and coworkers all know that you just moved here. It is a absolutely normal thing to feel a bit lonely at first, so they will understand if you ask them to introduce you to some people and/or take you to some social events. Just be honest about you feelings and I'm pretty sure they will be glad to do you this favor. Another great way to meet new people is to join a social club or course about something you really like. That can be anything from sports to saving pandas or learning how to paint, and it doesn't have this impersonal atmosphere you'd have in a bar for example. Also you'll already have something in common with the people who go there, which makes it easier to find something to talk about and might help a bit with having to go there by yourself, because especially at a course most people don't know anyone there, so you will not be the only one who's by her/himself. To experience something new we always have to get out of our comfort zone, but at least you can try to find things that aren't too stressful for you to do in order to make some new friends.

  • Being alone is great sometimes. It makes me comfortable rather than hanging out with a bunch of people who don't give a Shit about how I feel
