Angry I'm not speaking to you!

With all the social interactions or sometimes the lack of them for some people, I thought this might be an interesting read. Not everyone will want to interact with you/me, that's life, it doesn't mean that you're doing anything wrong...

I have never had a large group of friends, instead I tend to have just a couple of friends at any one point in time. I'm perfectly fine with being alone, and tend to prefer it more often than not.

Sociall media has not made it any better. It seems that people now ask probing personal questions far sooner than what used to be considered polite, and they feel that it is their right to know. In addition, people don't seem to be able to keep their mouth shut anymore.

My Childreo, and one or two other people are about all I can stand right now in my personal life.

I've always chosen my friends wisely.
Never been one to have a large group of mates, and its done me good.
Now I know who I can really count on to have my back.

Yes this is what I do as well. I can count on my fingers the number of good friends that I have that will have my back for me and be there when I really and truly need them.

there was a time when i cared about stuff like that, but i realized that if i'm okay with myself and i have to start thinking about "why doesn't [person/people] like me?" in a very complex, nuanced way, then the problem isn't with me.
if, on the other hand, i ask the same question and there seems to be a simple answer like "i didn't seem interested in the other person" or "i was rude in a certain situation" then i know it's me and i need to change.
otherwise? i couldn't care less. when i feel comfortable, i feel comfortable, and if people don't like me when i'm in this mode, then they're not worth my time.

don't change yourself too much just to suit others. you might lose sight of the things you really like about yourself.

All I can say is friends and friendships can pop up from unexpected corners. In fact, some of my closest friendships turned out that way - and with some of my close friends, I hardly have any common friends.

Sometimes you will be surprised how many people will befriend you if you simply listen to whatever they have to say, empathize and help out a bit if you can

That aside, practical guides to making friends

This article hits me on the head actually. I do kind of like being alone but I've had an overwhelming feeling of loneliness. The nearest person I know is 3 hours away and all of my friends and family are across the united states from me. I'd like to have a couple people to hang out with sometimes.

Thanks for the link, I'm going to be reading more articles on there.
