Hi,
I don't have anything in common with other people. I have lived in social isolation for years, so I don't understand how I should behave or what to say. People at work want me to get involved in social events, but it doesn't bring me joy. It is just another resposibility I have to fulfill. Unfortunately it is the most difficult one, because I never know what to say or how to be witty. After a couple of weeks, coworkers just start being mean to me, because I don't want to go to work parties and stuff like that. I would love to be able to have fun and laugh with others, but I don't know how to start moving in this direction. I don't know how to approach someone and make them my friend or girlfriend. I guess I just have to have something in common with them, but I don't, because I live in isolation. It is the running in circle that has been driving me crazy for years and I want it to stop.
