So Ive been trying to meet new people and make some new friends and as a 29 year old male Ive noticed that its not very easy. I dont mean to make ABDL only friends, I mean any friends. For me personally I tend to be very shy and to be honest I have no idea how people start conversations at all. Small talk is also very awkward because I dont care for it, talking about the weather is pretty pointless to me and theres also no sport I care enough about that I am willing to have a convo about.
I work night shifts for close to a year now, I've been single for about 2 years and at this point Im getting very lonely for any company. pathetic I know but its true, it was bad a few weeks ago but im getting over it now. I tried using my interests to make new friends like in kink communities but its been disappointingly fruitless. Its become the norm that people are always busy with something else, a NAVY guy in training for months now, the people who I get along with well but suddenly stop responding, the creepers who only want sex, the worse one yet and that happens way too often are the ones I really like but live in another state even though profiles say they live in the city.
I suppose the biggest problem comes from my job, I love what I do and the career I chose as a caretaker.my job consists of 12 hour shifts most of which I spend alone, only to go home sleep, and wake up to an empty house even though I have a roommate I live with. Its not like I can go out on a weekday night and meet people you know? who would I meet at 1am on a weekday? id rather not find out i think.
I didnt mean to rant but at this point im very frustated with my situation and wanted to see what you guys on ADISC though. Is my situation a rare one or is it mostly like this for everyone? what or how do you guys get out there and meet new people?
