Can anyone relate to wanting to make friends or find a partner, but finding it difficult because of introvert tendencies? I don’t have very many friends. People assume I must be antisocial and always tell me “get out of the house more”, but that’s not the problem. I’m not in school and I only have a few coworkers, so the opportunity to meet people just doesn’t arise very often, BUT as an introvert I’m not really comfortable with the idea of putting myself out there and trying to randomly meet people at bars or the gym (or wherever it is you go to meet people). I do enjoy social gatherings but rarely get invited to them because I know so few people, I just feel like the deck is kind of stacked against me.
It takes time to build a network of friends and you have to do the uncomfortable socializing if you want to meet people. Fact of life, sorry. I would recommend meet-up so at least you are with a group of people of similar interests. Or if your coworkers every invite you out go with them. It is hard, but there is no magic potion for magically having friends, and it takes some time and effort to find people you like.
Eventually though, your friends introduce you to people, and it is a lot less stressful to meet people that way.
