    I have no friends in real life and no online friends. I used to have two online friends but they don't talk to me anymore. I have no one. I am depressed. I don't want friends anymore. Is it worth it? Should I just give up? Since I don't attend school or work, the Internet is my only option for making friends. I don't know how to have conversations with people online. Like I can say hi and how are you and ask about hobbies. But after that my mind is blank and I never know what to say to people. Like I don't know how to be closer to people. What's wrong with me? How to have conversations with people?

    Hiya Anxious nightmare. I'm sorry that you are feeling like this. I am the same as you. I used to be quite an extrovert and now I am really shy and scared all the time. What I did was forget about making friends and got myself a dog. Now I have two dogs and they are my bestest friends in the whole wide world.

    You will make friends, just give it a bit of time. Firstly don't think about it. Secondly, join a club that interests you. Still, don't worry about making friends. You will meet people at the club who have the same interests as you and ultimately you will make friends. Let me know how you get on. You have me as a friend now! :cat:

    You will have plenty of caring friends here.We are one big family here.There is nothing wrong with being shy.You would never know it but I am extremely shy.I never know what to say either,usually I let the other person start up the conversation.If I dont feel comfortable with them then I dont say anything.

    Hey anxiousnightmare, you can actually make friends here you know. You can join online forums, online classes, online clubs where people socialize online if that's where your comfort level is at.

    I'm in the process of restructuring my life and lost a lot of friendships as a result. So, I know how horrible loneliness can feel. Humans are not designed to be isolated socially from each other. Being isolated can lead to other problems. So, reach out online if that's the only facet you have right now. That's what brought me to the anxiety community; to reach out to others who suffer from anxiety, so that I don't feel so alone and can talk with others and feel supported.
