Since then I went on 1 date with a guy that I couldn't feel anything for. Both of them were met through my bowling league, it's the only place I really go other than work and my weekly outings to the footy.
I've never liked nightclubs and that kind of crap so I've had limited meeting places and I just don't have the confidence to ask people out, I'm way too shy. I've been worried about it in the past but at the moment I'm content being alone as it means I can save money for my overseas trips easier
I would like to have more friends though as my best friends are on the internet and live interstate or overseas. I don't have a good friend in real life.
Well when I was younger I did always love to be with friends, never usually alone haha. But then I moved school, and the school was full of assholes (so thats when I decided to focus hard on my studies, and forget about friends). Of course, all my old friends were at my previous school; so I never really saw them anymore. From that time, I have never really had friends outside of college/uni etc.
You realise your older friends arent true friends anyway, I got pissed off with ringing up them to go play tennis, or come round my house etc, whilst they never returned the favour. So I didnt bother wasting my time with them.
I prefer to do stuff alone or stay at home, use the computer, watch the tv, listen to some music etc. I read a comment in a magazine for someone who was similar to me
and his wife was bitching about how he used the computer too much, and he said "the internet is alot more interesting than girls". Thats how I feel to, there are fare more important things and more interesting things than friends to me
I have recently started going to music gigs/shows, but I go alone as I have no friends to go with; and anyway I prefer to go alone (then I can chat to people there who I meet, if I want to). Half the time I do not want to speak to someone, so it works well.
What I seem to find is that alot of people seem to think its sad, and wierd that you dont have any friends. I hope I meet someone who isnt like that. As for the kids thing, as I said before
the problem will be finding a worthy partner/mother, thats the hard part!
