The title makes me sound like a loser. XD well idk, maybe i am. I am going to be 26 this year and I still dont have any close friends. This really didn't bother me before because I am very much an introvert. Sometimes I feel sad but it was okay as long as i have new books to read and pc games to play all day. My job is home-based so I don't have people to interact with personally. I suck at online friendships too because idk why. Maybe it's bec i can't speak english well. I didn't have any close friends when i was in high school or college either. I got companions, they call me friend but it felt superficial. There was no bond between us. A few years ago, i found friends in a christian group i was invited in but they all turned their backs on me when I came out to them. As I said, this didn't bother me before. Obviously, now it does. Maybe it's because i just had a breakup and i needed people around me but found none. But even more than that, i'd like to experience genuine friendships as much as finding a romantic partner. I don't know what's wrong with me. How can I build friendship with someone? How can I find people to be friends with? Edit: I forgot to mention, i had best friends before but i eventually had romantic relationships with all of them. (Not all at the same time ofcourse. XD) We didn't burn our bridges but we never went back to who we were before we became lovers. Thanks in advance!
