... if my job does not have any social contact and I'm not going to college?

I seem to have forgotten how to make friends... :|

since walking up to people on street and saying "lets be friends! :D" is pretty much ultra hard

we must use
toastmasters, meetup.com, clubs for hobbies and interests, classes and courses

its the only way!!


and when you feel the fear to do these things, you go "chhhhaaaarrrgggee!!!" and go do it anyway, ignoring any beliefs or feelings.

then when you get there, your in a constant fight with your feelings and beliefs that are feeling judgement. ah yes, tis a glorious fight!! your only objective is to silence those lying beliefs with the phrase "Why so serious??"

and seek out the friendliness in others
and all you gotta talk about is the meetup's theme. like if its toastmasters you can talk about doing speeches and the difficulties involved

then at the end of the day whne you get home, you declare victory! cause the only thing necessary for it to be a victory was that you went out and tried.

Wow, best advice I've ever heard on here. I'm copying this into a readme if you don't mine =). Why so serious?? LOL!

Try a community volunteer group. Since its volunteer, not much is expected of you so you aren't all stressed out to perform. Also the people there I think tend to be nicer and more patient. Friendship can easily be developed by working together.

How to stop the 'attempting reading thoughts syndrome' and the 'you're not *insert adjective here* enough thoughts? Those are my two biggest problems I think. When I try to reach out sometimes, and no one really responds (maybe not enough of a 'reach' so to speak), I get the feeling I am disliked or weird or creepy or something.
