    Dislike being a loner at the swimming pool (this is
    on weekends when it is PACKED)
    I see people my age having a laugh and enjoying
    their time whilst I am there looking down and doing
    my laps.
    Sometimes I get 'invitation' cues but do not know
    what to do. Will it be creepy if I smiled and started
    small talk?
    Gosh, I really need to make friends.

    What would you do?
    I am fine with ignoring (I really would
    prefer it) but I just have this impulse
    and desire to stop being so cold and a loner.

    Just do your own thing, I nearly always go swimming on my own - it is acceptable to do so, just like it is acceptable to be on your own at the gym.


    if its really packed or lots of kids - i leave go to gym
    if gym is really packed - go to park
    if park has lots of dogs - go to jog by river
    if lane into river is closed - run in garden
    if siblings are in garden - kick them back inside
