I have a friend who has really weird texting habits. He texts about once a month, sometimes less, sometimes a bit more, of you're lucky. But it's not like he only asks for favors or something, then I'd understand what's going on. No, he always seems to be genuinely interested in getting back in touch again, asks how life's going, tells me about some problems he has, seems to be interested in just casual chatting... then I answer all his questions, ask him some, and get no reply until a month passes, and he starts an entirely new topic. I just don't get why someone would do this. I haven't asked him yet, because I am not sure if that would sound weird.
Could really use some advice. I don't really have friends and would really like to make some, problem is that I don't have good social skills and struggle with depression. I've always been quite quiet but have tried to make more of an effort recently. It's not been going well, I went to a few meet ups and because I get so anxious socially, especially with new people, I find it hard to make eye contact and my responses are either short and awkward or rambling verbal diarrhea. I'm so lonely. I'm embarrassed, angry and upset with myself for not having friends. So if anyone has any tips to help me become more likeable or how to make friends I'll gladly take it.
i wanna sit down next to a random person in a cafe and talk, but im afraid ill get harshly rejected and told to fuck off
So me and my guy friend are out and staying in one room for a couple of days. I told that to my sister and she said that it looks like we will be a live in partners or like married people. It is a weird thought that I can't get out of my mind. I can't see it like the way it is before..
I have these two friends one is a social climber who whined about how she hates going to college and the other one whose in undergrad ever since I was 10 years old and is there for 10 years straight (no gap year or anything just took all 5 majors and is in financial debt) complains about how she wants to stop the regrets, wants everything to be better but isnt even willing to listen or take actions to her problems. Well i get emotionally furstrated at these two who are my actual loyal friends. Well i want to kind of avoid them because theyre that. Help them? impossible. So i just look at the good side, theyre my inspiration to be this person I dont want to be. To not be insecure of myself, to be honest, to be save money and not spend it on pointless things, accept my regrets so that i dont have a larger permanent regret that damages my freedom to succeed, to be realistic, to be willing to listen, to be open minded, to learn that everyone has their personal values and beliefs and cant expect to let them to think like me but only to accept the value and belief, and generally just not to be flat out like them. I know it makes me better than them but Im not gonna unfriend then.. maybe avoid them becaude id feel bad if someone leaves them who is their friend. But like i guess i could say this, im an adult and in college and if my community does not grow its time to move one. Its doesnt matt about the age (theyre waaaayyyy older than me) both are late 20s who acts like teens and im 19 and theyre mindset was me when was 17 in high school... i also learned from this, find friends who are actually open and have the same goals as you and does not give you this trouble only if theyre in trouble thwyre willing to be aware too that they themselves are in trouble and does not expect that their friends does their life for them.. it doesnt matter that age it matter the person. Well i need to leave these people.m maybe slowly.... im an introvert so its harder to make friends but its better than with friends that drains you awfully.
3 years ago after doing chemo and other treatments I was a mess. I was very anxious, temperamental and snapping at people for the simplest shit. Lost all my friends, except one guy I kinda hate. Thankfully my best friend and I have reconnected. It's not the same anymore though, he isn't available as before because he's getting married in the Summer.
I have literally no friends anymore except for one who lives abroad, so I basically have no friends. Noone I can hang out with, noone I can talk to. And I don't even hate it. The only thing I hate about it is that it's embarassing in front of my family, potential partners and acquaintances. But the thing itself is cool for me. I like not having to go outside or listen to people's problems. I talk to myself a lot. I need help.
i told him that i love him for the first time in my life...
the guy who raped me wouldn't give me my clothes back or let me leave.... so I was stuck at his place naked...fell asleep after crying myself to sleep and went home the next morning.
You captivated me and acted like nothing goes wrong? And you became a innocent? You've already deceived me and I know you did that fucking shit. You're like a coin. Unfortunately not valuable, but two faced :)
