Currently i'm not working, or in school. I know a lot of ppl are going through this after all the lay offs in early 2009. My resume is cr*p and I haven't had the motivation to look for work, and decided on trying for a 2nd degree (the motivation isn't the best either, sorry guys, I'm feeling really down these days), so while trying to pad my application, life is going kind of part time and slow for me. Less outlets to meet ppl, and when I do, it's hard to explain my situation. I'm in my late twenties. I really hate having to explain myself...I've met new ppl and tried on occasions and they seemed turned off, especially men, potential friends as well. How do you explain lack of friends, own place, or work/school...anyone in a similar situation? or do some "pad" up their lives too while trying to attract new, potential friends, mates?
