I can understand where you're coming from cause I feel the same way. I don't really see my friends as much anymore if at all. I work all day everyday pretty much with very little free time. The only time I really see any friends is the rare party here and there or when they stop by for a visit at work. One thing you can do is maybe socialize and get together with some people at work and start a new circle of friends with them. Unfortunately once highschool ends people tend to go their seperate ways and only the closest of friends keep in touch with eachother. If you can take what you learned from being with your highschool friends and apply it to the real world you'll do just fine.

For me it was the exact opposite! I had one friend in high school but now that I've escaped I meet new people all the time and I have a large group of friends that I can't imagine being without.

Idk bout everyone else but since high school ended, I only got a couple close friends left. Everything seems boring, and theres nothing exciting anymore. My routine consists of work, school, games, anime, and the occasional hangout. Maybe it's just me. Or anyone else out there?


I would suggest finding something you enjoy doing that involves a group so you get that social time you might need.

I think that happens to everyone. After i graduated i was home for like a year before i left and i only kept in touch with a few friends maybe like 8 from the group i hung out with which was like 10 people. And after i left i keep in touch with like 3 of them. No one i really keeps in touch with all their friends from high school. I'm pretty sure not keep in touch with everyone from high school is normal.

Same here, all I've got are a few nice friends I hang out with once in a while. I also have my bros to keep me entertained during the weekdays.

My routine is basically the same as well; Work, College, Anime, Sleep. Restart.
Then on weekends I sometimes hang out with friends...Still, it's pretty sad.

I miss High School.

High school was the worst thing I ever went through. Afterwards, because of various legal issues I never had a chance to do anything with my life. I currently am in a social limbo with one friend that I talk to and hang out with. My routine is wake up, eat , clean the house some and sleep. Very boring, but I am about to start school again and honestly I preferred the college life to the high school one anyways. Either way, as long as you have at least one long term friend, who cares how the people in HS are treating you now?

Highschool is a once in a lifetime opportunity, it's the complete social aspect and has its own system, it's what makes most of us today socially and academically, the groups, the socialites, the relationships, the gestures. Bullying, people hurting you. It really does prepare you mentally for later in life and mold you in a specific way, I feel that Highschool shown me how much people change, and also how fast!
I am down that I don't have most of my friends anymore but i'm always happy that I got to share the experience, it's a tad melancholic when you think about it.

College is a good remedy for that loneliness, though it's only a temporary solution. People you meet in high school and college will go different places for various reasons and contact with them will inevitably be different (at the best, close contact online or by phone) than it was in school.
I had little time for a social life in high school and college, so life now really isn't that much different since I keep myself busy. However, I can imagine that if you spent a lot of time socializing in high school and college, then it may be difficult to adapt to life after school since you will likely have more obligations and become more isolated.
My advice is to go to college and meet people, or try to meet people through work or online (in places that tend to have people with similar interests to your own - like Crunchyroll if you like anime). But the best solution is try try to find joy even in solitude and appreciate the experience of being alone not as the opposite to being with people or as a negative thing, but as a unique experience that has its own value.
