Prinzen Posted August 8, 2010 Report Share Posted August 8, 2010 I joined this forum expecting to talk about something totally other than this. I changed my mind though. Sorry this is so long. I have nobody I would consider my friend. Sure, I have many online contacts due to language studies and their company is certainly valuable. But outside of school, the only thing like friends I have are people I talk to maybe once every six months. Hardly something I can depend on for emotional support.I feel like most people meet their friends in high school, which I have recently dropped out of at 16. I never made any lasting friends there and it was torturous. (If you're concerned for my future though, know that I have been reading textbooks and other didactic materials and will be going to college soon. That's not the problem.)I have no idea how to make friends or a boyfriend in the "real world" though. Any advice on that would be welcome. A large part of the problem is the fact that my mom won't allow me to drive or get a job. I think I'd be a lot happier since right now I can only go anywhere I can walk to, and practically all of my time is spent at my house with my hobbies. (Which isn't a bad thing, but I'd like some variety.)The best friend I've had in the last year was a 27 year old Indian man. I met him at the local pizza place I frequent because I noticed that his shirt said something funny in Hindi. It was a bizarre and taboo friendship; if my mom would have known, she would have probably been angry. It was innocent though and mutually beneficial, as I needed to practice my Hindi and he his English. He left to Jefferson city in May and I tried emailing him, but he replied that he didn't want to feel like a pedophile and asked that I not contact him again.I honestly still don't know what to make of this and don't know if it's relevant to this post, but . . .Well, anyway. I'm not thinking clearly at the moment so I guess I'll just post this. Please comment if you want to on any aspect of this post. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
