    Although I really enjoy meeting new people and socialising, I really struggle to stay in contact with people afterwards, and I think this is having a really negative effect on my relationships.

    It's not that I can't be bothered to stay in contact with people, but I just forget and get caught up in life around me.

    I have moments when I really regret not texting back straight away etc. and then try to make the effort to get back in contact with people. But, I'm so frustrated that I just can't keep the communication up. I'm beginning to think that I don't have any real friends anymore.

    If I'm around people, I am always communicative and interested in their lives. I just can't seem to maintain that communication from a distance.

    Does anyone else have this problem too? Or suggest ways that I could work on this?

    I have this problem. But I think it's a two way thing. I find a lot that there's some people who just contact me when they want something. And when I stop contacting them, they then moan at me because I stop talking to them.
