Car Chick Posted May 2, 2010 Share Posted May 2, 2010 I get very lonely sometimes. I don't like that I have no friends, but I have a desperately hard time reaching out to people. I can't start a conversation. And when I finally do find someone that I can converse with, it's still somewhat uncomfortable and I can't seem to go that extra step. A couple of my friends have invited me over or asked that we get together some time or given me their phone numbers. I am comfortable enough with them talking when I see them at work or wherever I see them on a regular basis, but I can't seem to get myself to drop by for a visit or call them. Then I find myself lonley and want to call but don't feel like hearing the whole "Why haven't you called before?" thing and chicken out. What's wrong with me? My brother has a social anxiety disorder. Could I have that too? I want so bad to fit in and have friends. I don't want to be alone forever, but I am terrified of making friends and talking to people and even more terrified of letting anyone really get to know me. I am scared that they'll get close, and then leave me hurting. Link to comment
