Anyone like me.. 25 no friends no social life and never parited!?

Ok. I'll be 26 in a couple of days and feel that I'm just existing and have never had fun or good time in my life. I have NO, NOPE, ZIP, ZERO friends. My parents kept a tight hand on me until I move out 2yrs ago. I do have a beautiful 3 year old and my ex is in and out of my life. Without him I'd be completely alone. My family is shady and two faced so I don't communicate with them. I have never been on a social outing, never went to a party never celebrated anything with girlfriends none of that. I feel like I'm the only person in this world like this. Growing up my parents forbade me from making friends and going out or talking to kids at school. They did the same with my siblings but iknowing how I grew up I told them to make friends and ignore my parents on that. They are all very social and I'm the shy awkward one. Its hard to make friends now because of how I grew up. Am I alone? My. Bday is coming up and I will just be working and nothing. Its sad and depressing sometimes. Its sad having no one to call talk ot share stuff with.

  • I understand that it is hard. I think that one way to make friends to start going to play groups with your DD. Most of the friends I have right now are parents of children that my children play with. We have been friends for 9 years and it is great to have people that understand what I am going through and how things have been.

    Good Luck!

  • Find an interest. Go to church. You recognize it is a problem. Decide how you are going to solve it.

  • go to and look for moms' groups, play groups, reading groups...........whatever your interests are. And if you can do some volunteer work somewhere you might find it really helps. The more we give the more we receive

  • well u did have a friend when you were with your baby daddy. I understand the "feeling" of being alone. If you want to make friend you gotta get up and go make some. Enjoy casual conversation explore new hobbies. ignore your family and make a new family. Good LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Me! I'm 28 and never partied and only have 1 real friend besides my DH. Mine is a result of anxiety, though.
