        It would probably take years before I understand the full extend of it, people have never told me what the social cues are, but they don't tell you when you miss them either.

        Ahh yes, what'd I call the 'game' of socializing. Getting the 'prize' only if you press all the right buttons, with absolutely no lifelines. Although I will say finally figuring out how to play can bring just as much stress, doing something that just doesn't come naturally and becoming drained in the process. It's a struggle either way, it seems many of us going through. Hang in there.

        I’m outgoing but I’m still pretty socially awkward. It’s hard to predict people’s reactions to things and it’s easy to rub people the wrong way. I’m too exuberant for a lot of people. I can be really overwhelming. Most NT’s expect everyone to interact as flawlessly as they do. It’s a struggle for everyone on here and that’s why it’s good that we all have each other :) Hang in there Phantom!!

        Whatever dude. That's not true, and you know it. We were all socially awkward at 21. It's like a rite of passage.

        Plus it's covid. Nobody really has friends right now. My poor daughter's prom was cancelled 2 years in a row, and her friends' moms are all mask karens that won't let them out the front door to hang out.

        Wanna be penpals? PM me your address and I'll send you a letter with cool stuff in it.

        I have been thinking for years that it will just be a ride of passage or i will grow out of it, but i never did.

      Reasons for living? What's wrong? Did you lose a pet? Relative pass away? Get dumped? Or worse right, "friendzoned"
      That's "let's just be friends" in modern talk.

      Wasting everyday, trying to find reasons to stay alive, doing my best to distract from loneliness. I really can't take it anymore.

        @phantom What would give you the feeling that your life had value? What would have to be going on so that every day didn't seem to you to be a waste?

        I know what it's like to be very depressed. Please hold on. We all care for you so much.

        When you're in the depths of depression - the only way is up.

      How many cultures have you explored? Did you want a job at a shopping mall and a polo shirt collection?

      Not to worry. The world is only sleeping....
