Hi everyone. I'm pretty socially awkward, I realize. It's a bit depressing, to be honest. I'm introverted but I do get lonely when I spend a while without people, especially if everyone around me seems to be having a good time. Sometimes I'll talk to people and keep a conversation going, but I have absolutely no idea how to talk to strangers. Most of the people I know have connections to someone I'm really close to.
I'd like to meet more people (and even a potential boyfriend) but I don't really know how to.
All of my friends pre-college were close friends from elementary school. Plus, I grew up in a household that didn't really foster social development.
