    Recently I've been hanging around the internet a lot. I'm not gonna lie but I feel like I've lost all my social skills and ability to make friends in real life. My old friends think I'm a massive creep because of all my friends I've made on the internet over the past few years and I'll be honest, some of my internet friends are really creepy . Any ideas on where to go from here?

    Really don't know how to proceed with my social life lol

    Thats a good question, if you figure it out let me know, i never even developed social skills due to all my time being spent on my own so i'd still be curious to know if there is a way lol (think its a bit late for me but worth knowing)

    If you have any interests, try to find people who have similar ones.

    You could do this by going to a fitness class, learning a new musical instrument or language, playing a sport etc.

    I've made a few friends at the gym just by making offhand comments about things.

    The best way to improve your social skills is to force yourself to push your boundaries, get out there and get talking to people! You can do it the thought is always way more daunting than the actual thing.

    If you ever want to chat, I'm always around

    I haven't met any of them yet. I live in a town and not that many people go on the internet too often. The ones I know are either from London or America which I don't really visit lol

    I'll be honest i'm one of those guys that will probably think that you are a creep but i am not here to troll .

    Its pretty easy man, you text some of your old friends and ask if they want to go watch Avengers 2, if they say no or make up some lame excuse you move onto the next guy! (This trick works with dating girls too hahahah).
    Also when you hang around with them, try not to talk about your virtual friends too much. A normal guy (like me) will think you are a wierd and probably will not reply to your texts. Talk about football or something, an interest that all guys can relate too.
    I have made an assumption that you are a guy

    No, no! Don't! We all change as we grow up, it's just one of those things. Chatting to people online doesn't make you a creep, though.
