I've got no friends and I am socially retarded. I can usually meet people and they become acquaintances but I have no idea how to turn the relationships into friendships. I always hear other 21ish year old kids on my street always having people over and they are a group of guys and girl and they are outside talking and laughing. Well I have nothing like that and it's really bringing me down. In HS I had terrible anxiety and I never talked to anyone. I thought I knew best but I was never happy. Over the course of the last month I realized that I'm unhappy because I have no friends so I want to fix that. I never went to college and I'm broke and I still live at home with my parents. On top of being lonely I feel like a complete failure. Every single day is exactly the same. I wake up around 12 noon and watch tv/internet/masturbate/eat until about 2-3am when I go back to bed. I am starting community college in a few days but like I said earlier, I don't know how to turn those people that I meet into friendships. What should I do? What are my options?
