13 dating 20 year old
I have always been extremely shy, but when times were good and I had at least a few friends, I found it so much easier to be more friendly and introduce myself around people.
Entering college, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to meet new people. One was depressed and overweight, she never spoke, had no social skills and only left the room to go to work.
One aspect of your depression is that you lack self confidence and experience low self esteem even though you are clearly very intelligent and are an excellent student.
The second problem is that you are suffering from a social anxiety disorder.
But none of them wanted to go out, so I too stayed in our dorm room all the time.
Now it is sophmore year, one of those girls transferred, and the other two are in singles. Shes really nice and we get along great but we have virtually nothing in common with each other. I think, "why would anyone want to be friends with someone who has none." People come up to me all the time in the elevator of my dorm or in my classes and I feel like I have nothing to say, and make the simplest situation awkward.
There were times where everything was going great, but there was that feeling of insecurity that something would soon go wrong, and I would become depressed once again.
Throughout my life I always found myself being friends with people who weren’t really true friends, and leaving behind those who would really be there for me when I needed them and were true.
Because I am so shy I was hoping that since I chose to have 3 roomates at least one of them would want to meet new people and then as long as I had one by my side I would have the confidence to meet new people.
The trouble is that roommates in dorms are rarely satisfying and I hear lots of complaints from myriad numbers of student.
