  • Try to find a common interest with people and see how that goes. Are you very opinionated? Sometimes that can deter others from associating with you. Being overly judgemental is also not easy for people to overcome and ignore. It's important that you be yourself and not conform to what others want you to be, but at the same time you do need to try to be sensitive to their feelings, thoughts and beliefs.

  • You seem depressed darlin. What you need to do is to learn to love yourself first. Find some things you enjoy doing in your spare time and you will surely meet people who share your interests. Surround yourself with people who can appreciate you for being YOU. Do your best to be approachable and friendly, try to come outside your comfort zone in socializing a little bit.

  • I am not seeing the problem here. I just do not understand people's fascination with what others think of them. I do not care what anyone thinks of me, even my loved ones! If you do not like me for some reason that is your problem, not mine!

  • I deal with this a lot I'm black and I have a little girl that's bi-racial. We belong to a lot of playgroups and Mom's groups ,and the area we live in is mostly white. Right in the middle of suburbia. A lot of times they see a black face and they make a judgement about me. When really I'm just like them a SAHM in suburbia driving a minivan and trying to make friends for my daughter and I.. I grew in a very culturally diverse area and I can careless about color. If your a good person standoffish or outgoing I'm giving you a chance. If they don't want to know you forget about them and keep moving... They are prob Judgmental.

  • Smile. Just say hello when you go to the grocery store or to the bank. Ask how are you and then wait for the response. Some times people just need an opening.
