This Friday was horrible, to begin for this week I set the goal of no video games period as an attempt to get me to diversify my hobbies. However I've always used video games as my destressor. So when I got home from work and I didn't know what I wanted to do, so I started hitting up friends, the whole 3 I have in town. All 3 we're busy or sick, and to be truthful I haven't seen any of them in two weeks. They rarely ever invite me to anything, and I often feel outcasted. So I've been trying to make new friends, however it makes me painfully aware that I don't know how to make friends outside of a school setting. Even then it's difficult. So I've been going to coffee shops to chill and feel less alone, looking for people that might be interested in talking with a stranger. They're few and far between, and every time I talk myself out of going up to them for fear of social embarrassment. So how do you guys make new friends?
