It seems so hard to "get out there"...


Recommended Posts

I'm a fairly reserved, introverted kinda guy, and I've been a bit of a recluse for years, now. Part of that had to do with a driving issue (I didn't feel I could "get out there" if I couldn't get myself around), but after way too long, I finally resolved that issue a few weeks ago. Ever since I got that taken care of, I've... come to realize just how dull, boring, and uneventful my life is. Not to mention, incredibly lonely.


I want to... well, "get out there", and do stuff. I don't know what, exactly, but... yanno... something. But it just seems so difficult to get started. I technically don't have any close friends; the closest people I'd consider friends would be some of my coworkers, and a while back, they used to invite me to do things and try to include me in stuff, but I always had to decline (again, due to my aforementioned driving issue). So now, nobody really reaches out to me anymore. I've been trying to make it known as best I can to people that I'm ready, willing, and able to go do stuff, but I just can't get any "bites".


In the past, I've been recommended to try stuff like link removed, but to be completely honest, I have no interest in just jumping into a group of complete strangers, and I think even if I tried to "meetup", I'd probably just keep to myself and have a horrible time. I'd rather spend some time with people I already know, and I'd be more comfortable in general because even if I don't "meet" anyone new, at least I still have someone else to hang out with.


I dunno, I mean, I know it's a Sunday night, but even now, I'm just bored out of my mind, and all I really do is go to work and sit at home. Granted, I've also only started looking to get out more in the last few weeks, and I suppose I can't expect it to just happen all at once, but I just don't even know what to do with myself. @_@

Its easy you jump in the car, and you goto the cinema alone, that s the start, you go alone first just to make the jump, then you get to know a few movies, and hey maybe you know a co-worker ,and you invite them to the next movie, or any place you would like to hang out to. Don be your own worst enemy, there s no reason to hold back as long as what you are doing isnt harmfull.
