I took initiative

I always wait for texts and messages from people about hanging out. I rarely get any. I don't have a distinct group of friends or best friend. I texted my friend asking him to hang out and he said he will! Then I kinda messed it up..lol... He asked when so I just said "Idrc any day you pick." He didn't respond. I know he got the message though.

Congratulations! I have a hard time with initiating contact with others. I worry that I would bother them or appear to be needy.

Good work putting yourself out there. I always waited for others to contact me to hang out. I never did feel comfortable being the one to initiate anything so good for you!
