Hey crunchyrollers its a nice warm day outside 50F lately its been pretty cold in Maryland. The problem is I lack any friends to go hang out with outside. I like to vegetate and stuff , although going to the mall to watch others have a good time while i stay to the side quietly isn't ideal(I'm the process of meeting people in college but no luck yet). It makes me very depressed. Am I alone in feeling this?

Not at all. I just recently moved to a different city and haven't had much luck at all making friends. The best advice I can give is to remain optimistic, being down won't help make things better at all.

Basically, what you're asking is how many of "us" are also nolifers.

I do have some friends, but... we don't keep in touch, and we all really don't like going outside, so...
Although I am like you, it does not make me feel depressed.

I like being alone so I don't mind at all... It usually takes my friends (the only 2 other people I hang out with besides my best friend) a month or two of trying to schedule with me before they actually get to see me..

My advice would be, don't try too hard. Don't get desperate and depressed. Spend time to get to know yourself and enjoy your solitude. From my experience, if you can't stand being alone with yourself then odds are people are not gonna want to be around you. No one likes to be around unhappy people.

Go to a movie and find someone sitting alone, sit next to them, turn your head and give them a smile, rest your hand on the their forearm and whisper, "I like turtles."

If they laugh, you've made a friend. If they leave and come back with security, RUN!

It is a nice day out today...I see it is 55 and sunny.
So I stayed in and read my book and washed my bathtub.

Not the most fun thing to do on a nice day, but I enjoy my alone time. Now my husband is pestering me about what we are gonna do when he gets home in the next hour...
Oh well.

Just take your time and find the right friends. Do you have any hobbies like gaming or play Magic the Gathering? If so find out where the closest Friday night magic event is held near you. If you're into comics or manga visit your local comic shop, you can meet a lot of interesting people there.

No need to rush into things or get mixed up with the wrong people. Just take things slow and enjoy your self.

You don't have to rush things. I'm sure you'll make friends. Just find the right time to introduce yourself to someone. c: I personally don't have many friends. I live alone. I keep in touch with my old friends from high-school, but most of them have moved. Some live here in San Fran., but other than that, I'm on my own. I have yet to make friends in college. But my co-
workers are out of the question. They're all ass holes.

On a nice warm day, I just go outside put my headphones on, and just start walking.
