hi everyone. i just joined. trying to find a place to meet people who are like me. i am from sumter, sc. i'm 34. and i have social anxiety. i don't really have any friends anymore. the ones i did have are more like acquaintances now. i've always felt like i didn't fit in and awkward around people. the only time i felt remotely normal around people is when i used to drink. then i could actually talk to people and be social. but i quit drinking and now it's back to my shell. i don't regret it thought. it was causing health issues and people aren't worth damaging my health over. if i don't fit in then oh well. i would rather have people like me for me and not for what they want me to be or for who i am when under some drug like alcohol. besides can't stay drunk 24/7. the real you is always there. so yeah my social life sucks. i don't want to be popular or fit it anyway. i just want to meet a good friend or meet someone special that can understand and just be happy. and for those that believe, we always have God. and yeah i feel awkward about posting here too but here goes...
