Yes and no. I haven’t had any friends in about 3 or 4 years. I recently got a job and have a couple people at work that I talk to, either about work, the company, or personal interests, side projects, weekend plans and things like that. It’s not much, and the main guys I talk to are like 30-40 years older than me, but having some kind of daily interaction beats being a NEET and sitting at home all day and spending all my time on the internet. So I guess I have one or two co-worker friends now.
I think I’ll try making some friends online sometime, but I usually make excuses, procrastinate and avoid messaging anyone that posts their discord online. I think part of the problem is that there are so many people out there that it’s hard to choose people to talk to, they can disappear at any time, and it feels like some random person might not value your time and “friendship” because they can just find someone else where meeting someone in person you’re limited to people in your area and ones that you happen to meet somehow like through a group or something.
My other issue that it’s been so long since I’ve had friends I’m kind of worried I won’t know what to do if I did have one (I know that probably sounds pretty dumb.) I guess like how often should you message people, and things like that. Idk, I guess you just have to find people and keep talking to them and see what happens. >>11950
That sounds great. Now you might as well keep trying to talk to the guy, you probably won’t meet anyone else in your area that has similar interests and he’s in the same position.
Once you’re out of school and on your own it seems a lot harder to meet anyone. Outside of a couple places like bars, and hobby clubs it feels like outside of work people just sit in their house all day (and tbh that’s kind of what I do most of the time)
