ohok gotcha haha


I wouldn't believe everything you read or hear on the internet dude, I've hung out with plenty of people I've met from high school, after graduating going to pubs, clubs, music events, art classes, groups, TAFE and much more, going over to friends houses getting driven around etc, late night having fun and stuff just because someone says hurr durr I'm dribbling bullshittery on the internet doesn't mean you have to believe it,


I think I would know about the friends I have made, met and had fun with

It's all subjective and relative. I do agree with prior posts that stated IRL friends are important, even if you are more anti-socially inclined; going out and being around other humans keeps you on the lesser side of social awkwardness. I've been out of undergrad for almost 4 years now; I got a job immediately after graduating where I'm travelling to various states to do work every year or multiple times a year - so I am constantly making connections that I have to choose between letting go or trying to maintain as well as the hassle/adventure of making new connections. It is not easy, and the effort can be a pain in the ass...especially keeping in touch with the real friends from my past where we have all went our own ways at this point.

My advice is simple; just be you. I am more of an introverted anti-social person. I'm an only child and I've always easily kept myself entertained and not had to rely on others for that aspect, but with that said it is also nice to have people to do things with even if it is simply going out to eat. It's not always about making "friends" - i don't consider most of the people i connect with or spend leisure time with to be my "friends"; however, they are still an important aspect to my social life and just because I don't expect to see certain people at my wedding or funeral doesn't mean I can't have fun with them in the passing moments. Shit, some of my funnest memories are with people I didn't care at all about. So I'd only genuinely worry about such things if it's something YOU care about and it bugs you that you don't have the amount of friends you desire.
