Don't look for friends. Friends will find you.

No way. When I was younger I was socially distant and all the kids would ignore me. Being older now, I can communicate better and have more of a mature conversation. If anything, I make friends better now.

Well, as an adult, I can talk to anybody, but I don't consider anybody to be a friend. I have this absurdly high standard as to what a friend is, that I don't think anybody can live up to, but I don't want anything less.....and although I have no problem with those of different or no beliefs, apparently they have a problem with mine.

I don't even bother trying, if someone wants to be my friend, they can come up to me.
Otherwise, I just go on about my day as usual.

I do have trouble.

Mostly because I do not trust them, I view anyone speaking to me in public as an enemy, a competitor.

But I do not treat them as such, I treat everyone the same as a human, with certain respect at first sight.
But the second they cross me...

The only few people I can deeply trust; family and a few friends I've known since my childhood.

How is this possible if you have social anxiety and don't put yourself out there?

Well i guess it won't be hard if they're like CR users. Open-minded, but we're different in real life , saying 'Hi' or 'Hello, what a good day'
or 'Nice to meet you' isn't easy to some strangers.

I have this same problem. It's ridiculous I know I'm an "adult" I shouldn't be shy and be more out there but it's hard. I find people so intimidating... probably why the only real people I can call friends are the 3 i've met thru the internet first.

all my buddies off doing their own thing now...its harder as u get older work travel etc. The friends you do make as you get into adulthood is most likely colleagues if you work, love em or hate em they are still your friends lol. I don't go out much so I hardly meet people now.

Gets harder to keep friends away. This is a curse.
