    It's better to be interested than interesting.

    It's harder to make friends as you get older full stop.

    I'm sitting here seriously wondering if i'll ever make a friend again.

    Sometimes think the same.

    When you get to my age everyone has a long term partner and has no need to make friends. So people like me who are too ugly for love are ****ed

    Pretty sure you once said you were in your mid 20s. Wouldn't say everyone at that age has a long-term partner.

    People become absorbed with their partners and withdraw a bit from friends in their 30s I would say.

    C'mon man don't say that. I see below average men with girlfriends/wives all the time.

    Ah well we can be Forever Alone together. :beer:

    Don't lose hope! I had no friends at all from 11 to 21 basically. I'm 24 and I have many friends now. I keep meeting new people too...

    Not sure what changed. I was extremely shy. I decided to not give a **** anymore and talk to people. Also, I had a pretty bad hygiene! Good luck

    How did you suddenly boost your self - confidence and find friends? Im in Year 11 now and I have friends but we're not really close. I used to be in a group with them but they always made me feel inferior and that I depended on them so they could do whatever they wanted with me (basically they bullied me) Theyre tryna be all nice and friendly now probably cuz I got an A* in my Maths GCSE and they got B's and C's but they didnt really accept me for who I was and I would really like to find a nice friendship group. Ive started talking to people around me (theyre quite shocked cuz I was really quiet in Year 9 and 10) and participate in class. But I just dont know how to find one and if they'll be nice friendly people.

    I was in that situation too when I was still at school. Honestly, forget those people. You know what they say, it's better to be alone than in bad company. Finding that one friend is the hardest thing to do.

    I took a few minutes (more like a few hours or even a few weeks) to think about my life in general. And it just wasn't working... I'm not saying I'm not shy anymore because it's not as easy as that but... I definitely improved. Yeah, I was a nice guy, respectful and all but I couldn't get anywhere with people (no friends, no girlfriend at the time).

    Can't really help you more. I was lucky. I had 1 friend at the time (that was about 3 years ago), I met his girlfriend's friend. Without that girl maybe I would still have no friends today. I met her brother and her sisters, her friends (and she had a lot), then I met the friends of those friends, etc. The irony is that it all started with her and I can't stand her anymore. I still see her family regularly, everyone but her. I'm glad I met her though. Good luck finding that one friend. I really hope you'll find him/her.
