    Well basically my interests/hobbies just consist of watching TV, playing video games, socialising, masturbating, playing/watching sports, eating & surfing the web. I only have a handful of friends due to social anxiety although I would really love to meet new people. People who aren't shy & have loads of interests definately have an advantage in life. How do I become more like them while staying true to myself?

    I like how you mention masterbation as a hobby. Maybe find some new friends or enter masterbation competitions?

    you want to "genuinely become more like them"? ..i think there might be a slight contradiction in there

    I'm not referring to the "having more interests bit" for that part. I doubt I could ever increase my hobbies/interests & also stay true to myself from past experiences

    Well i think i may have little SA (especially round people i haven't spoke to before). You can talk to people about TV, playing video games, playing/watching sports don't you listen to music? maybe see if anyone like the same music as you, which can be hard since everyone i know listens to the **** that's in the chart and i listen to mainly metal/punk rock/hard rock.

    well then it sounds like you just need to cultivate more enthusiasm for what you already like.. maybe read around your current interests a little and make them grow

    You can't force interests, you have interests anyway.
    Gaming and sports are pretty commonplace.

    I have some very odd interests and I tend to get on with people in their 40s and 50's better than I do people my own age, it's all about finding the common ground.

    Perhaps sometimes it can but at the same time, these friends I have, if it wasn't for university, I wouldn't ever come across them. I've told this to them already so it's much more of work-related friendship than anything else.

    This is quite stupid but you know I feel pretty comfortable.

    Who lists masturbating as an interest? That's like listing eating as an interest.
