So, I am trying to socialize. Do you think I am going the right path?

Well since I am still looking for a job and I don't have a social life. Today I sign up to volunteer at a local garden community and fashion designer thing. Also I ask to join 3 club today. One is about gaming, the others is about the environment and the last one is Acoustic Club. If the garden community doesn't need help with the garden... I could volunteer at red cross or I'll keep looking. I wanted to do mentoring. I know I love jogging long distance and youth. Only thing its a bit far like in washington D. C and I live in Va. I also use public bus. I don't know if I should send them an email. I want to emphasis I love jogging! Like I been jogging since forever. I might not look like it now but I sure did jog a Lot. Anyways, I spend most of my life in my house part my fault and my mother who never let me out of the house. Well I am 20 and almost 21. And I want do something and make myself feel better. at least give it a go and see if I like it! I neeed to human interaction with people my age. lol What you think?
P. S. I did this all today! haha by emailing.
Its a big step for me and it scary me. I am so use to my house its hard to imagine having a direct conversation with someone my age lol.

  • I think what you have done so far is great! Definitely a step towards where you want to be. The important thing is to realize that while sometimes what you have already done may seem small, every step in the direction you want to go is progress. Don't feel bad for not having it all figured out yet.

    You've already done a good chunk of the work. Identified some local groups that you have interest in and contacted them. Even figured out possible transportation to the groups. So that's a good first few steps!

    If the groups don't work out, don't worry. There are plenty of groups out there, there are always new ones forming! :)

    I feel the same way as you sometimes. I'm 26 and most of my friends settled down early. It really sucks that I am in such a different place. But I have the freedom to choose what I do each and everyday. I can participate in activities as a wish and go out whenever. Unlike my friends who have to consult with their families. It's hard because I don't have a lot of friends I can go out to dinner with or do activities with. So I am trying to do the same as you and branch out.

    Good luck!

  • You have already done way more than I have. I haven't socialized in years and don't think I will any time soon. Meeting friends is far too scary for me.

  • You're on the right path but don't do too much all at once. Try all of those and see which one sticks or let you know what you like

  • What kind of gaming?

    Just don't over work yourself and overload your mind. Still seems like a really good start but make sure not to let anyone use you. That's not a fun feeling when that happens.

    Not sure if it's just me, but it's easier to social when you see people face to face than to try and message them. I'm more paranoid about what to say talking to other females online than I am in person. When I meet a female to talk to in person, then I don't worry about anything and just say the first thing that comes to mind.
