Ever since I small I never got to learn about social skills. I was moved around a lot and never had any friends. Now that I am living on my own I can honestly say that I have only one true friend. The only problem is that whenver he wants to do something without me or date someone I get exteremly jeoulous. We did go out 5 years ago, ut unfortantly 3 of my classmates broke us up. Now I have been single for 5 years because I don't know how to trust anyone. Also, I am trying to go out with my friend again. I think I don't trust guys because I never dated anyone before and I never had any friends. Can someone please tell me why I get so jealous when he wants to do something else. I am very miserable and lonely. I also feel uncomfotable going over to other peoples houses except for his because I feel like they will reject me. :( :( [size=18]
Try to find something that interests you that might include other people. Do you like any type of crafts? Is there a class on a hobby that you would like to take? What about a church group. This will expose you to other people in a semi-social situation where you have a reason to be there other than to meet people.
As a navy spouse, I understand how hard it can be to meet people and make friends when you move around alot. I am not comfortable in new social situations (I also was not taught much in the way of social skills as a child). I have found that this works for me. I have a reason to be there and a reason to speak to people. This is how I have met some of my best friends.
