I have no real friends and barely have a social life.
I'm kind of like that too.
I have gotten really antisocial since my teens but yet I still manage to be quite social and get along with people easily when I have to go out, but most relationships don't seem to evolve much to the point I see them in the daily basis, I got friends I can count on, but we barely see each other now.
We talk most of the time online, last time we saw each other was on my birthday last month, not sure if we will see each other this year again.
I don't have social anxiety, but I prefer to be alone. But sometimes I hate being alone.
Oh I know how that's like.
I had this girl hit on me once and I just let her go because of it.
You might regret later on missing those opportunities.
My parents are worried and feel sorry for me because they want better for me.
Parents can only do so much. Its more about what you can and want to do.
It's okay to be an introvert. Extroverts have a hard time understanding us though.
Its like we are aliens. Its disappointing how people have such trouble to understand those that enjoy different things than them. They seems to really believe that everyone can only be happy by being like them, such arrogance. Stuff like that only pushes introvert away from extroverts, gets in the away of finding a balance between.
As an introvert, let me tell you that there's nothing wrong with that shit, but getting a social hobby you can engage with on your own terms (ie; just once a month or so, or only on days you feel like it) will also do you a world of good.
Yeah this, extreme is bad, finding a good balance for yourself will do good.
