are brutal for me. I have tried going out with new people but I just don't fit in. No matter what approach I take, attitude I have, or what mood I try and put myself in, people just don't respond to me. They will respond to me in a way that they think i'm a cool guy, but at the same time they have no desire to see me again. Not that they don't want to see me either though. There is probably like 10 of the same people that I see socially, but none of them have ever asked me if I want to hang out sometime. I have seen these same people for the last few years through 1-2 mutual friends. It would be too late for me to ask any of them now if they want to hang out. Hanging out with people is just too weird for me. I'm a very boring person to talk to, I don't have much to say. I'm just a stereotypical background character. Also, no matter how much time I spend with the same person, the awkwardness never goes away. I'm pretty much a known stranger to everyone. So Fridays and Saturdays I always spend watching a movie or something. I do this so often that I don't even know what I'm missing. What am I missing by not socializing? Am I missing out on important life lessons? Am I missing out on the point of life? Does it prevent me from seeing the big picture? Please help, I'm looking for some concrete advice here. I need to know something, I just don't know what.
