Hey guys! After being a chronic longtime lurker on this site I finally decided to join today and become better at contributing. Due to personal experience and observation, I find it a bit challenging to maintain friendships. For the most part my peers do not seem to be interested in the same hobbies or subjects that I am. I am 20 years old and in college, so as you can imagine the people around me are mainly partiers. For a while I tried the party scene just to fit in and make friends, but I eventually found it to be a waste of time. It just seemed so empty. Also, the friends I ended up making were not very good ones and it often times felt like I was being taken advantage of by them. Today I feel a bit lonely thinking back about my entire college experience. I have friends but I find only like 3 of them here are good ones. What are your experiences in this field?
