    I've posted about this before but here I go again, I honestly have no friends. I have 1 proper friend and without her I wouldn't have a social life. I'm quiet and socially awkward, its not because I'm unsocialable I just lack confidence. When I'm drunk I'm the life and soul of the party but when I'm sober I have zero personality. People like me when I'm drunk, thats all good but I can't be drunk constantly.

    People seem to always dislike me apparently I come off as arrogant and cold. I was bullied in school which has affected me greatly and I'm alot more confident than what I used to be mostly because I've grown into my looks.

    Its really starting to depress me! Should I see someone? How do I become at ease with myself and around others? I have no idea how to start a conversation beside asking them what they do or where they're live.

    Stick to your proper friend all the time (im assuming shes your BFF) but at the same time initiate conversations with other people. i do that because I hate hanging out a group all the time, people change and conform when they do.
    Btw, I go real crazy when Im drunk too. Thats when I socialize with boys because I get too shy and nervous every other day!

    What are you afraid of?

    All you can do is believe in yourself, try and be as confident as you can, and go off TSR and out!! Even if your shy and nervous, its not going to magically disappear sitting infront of the computer. In the end the worst that can happen is someone thinking your boring and not talking with you anymore - then its time to find the next group of friends.

    Blame the parents, its usually the fathers fault, some are no more than grown babies (many closet gays)
