I honestly don't know if this is even worth typing out, but I don't see how it could hurt.
I have few people I would regard as friends, and the ones I do are people I went to school with. I can't understand how people just make new friends, it seems so much more complex as an adult.
As a teenager, I would see other people in my school getting into relationships etc, and this is also something else that I can't seem to wrap my head around. I see total strangers meeting in bars and having long conversations like its nothing, and it totally blows me away. How is that possible? I walk down the street and people actively try to move away from me or just look at me with pity / disdain.
I just feel like I never learned to be a "normal" human adult. To clarify, I have not been diagnosed with any condition (autism etc) which might affect me socially.
TL:DR – No idea how to make friends or speak to strangers in general, how would one go about learning these skills? Or is it too late at this point?
