My boyfriend is quite social but I, on the other hand, have absolutely no friends of my own. I don't feel insecure when he hangs out with them but getting with him has actually made me realise just how much I'd like to have friends myself to get together with once in a while. It seems to double the loneliness I feel when he talks about friends of his, or when he goes home and I think about how little social contact I have apart from him.
He knows that I'm not a very social person but he has no idea of my actual situation. On the one hand I feel I should be grateful that he includes me in get togethers with people he knows, but at the same time it's terrifying for me to meet so many new people at once (just today for instance, he tells me that he's arranged for us to meet up with 3 of his friends and their girlfriends... great). He's also suggested that I bring a friend of mine along with us one day to go and meet another of his friends... a bit hard to do when I have absolutely no-one to ask. :no
I'm usually a very honest person but telling someone that I have zero friends is just something I don't want to do. It's almost as if I pretend that I know people, the problem isn't really as bad as it is. I convince myself that soon enough I will have friends, but so far I'm still completely friendless... I just hope I'm able to make some once I'm at uni, otherwise my lack of them won't be so easy to hide.
