Problems With Friends.

Post by Fniff on Wed Apr 13, 2011 11:46 pm

After looking at my updated topics page for the 18th time today and growling in annoyance when I found it empty for the 17th time today, I realized why I don't have any friends anymore and why I don't talk at the get togethers my parents throw occasionally.

All the friends of my parents are boring.

No fault of their own though, and most of my other family relations are still interesting, along with Fabian's friends. They would be perfectly exciting for anyone else. The problem is is that I have sucked them dry of anything interesting and I can't talk to them about anything. I feel terrible for this, but it's the case. I need someone else in my life that I can occasionally call for a get together, and have fun there.

But where do I find this mystical nice-person-to-have-fun-with? I can't go to the pub since I am too young, I am being homeschooled so hanging about the playground would just make me a pedophile who can't wait to get started, those gamer places with the computers are just...Fucking weird, cults are not that fun since you are likely to have the exact same interests, restaurants are a no-no since when has a random person sat down next your wife and children and said "This seat taken?" in a fancy restaurant and I can't drink coffee or tea so Cafe's are out!

Where the hell do I go to meet this person that is fun?

We only have animal circuses around here. And even those are rare.

Also, I hate sports. The last time I tried a sports team was because it was mandatory, and everyone was too goddamn serious!

Sports team's your best bet, Jimbo. Even if you don't like it now chances are if you put in the effort you'll enjoy yourself & certainly make friends.

I was on a sports team once. They didn't let me play much but I got a great seat to watch everyone else.

I've been on a few sports teams. I'm going to be on another come May 2nd. (That's when the season starts).

That's how I know they can get you friends, if you want them to. Not all of them will have people you share interests with, obviously, but I've made some friends from a couple of the teams I've been on. Even if you aren't all that good at the sport, it's the effort that the team appreciates. And you can always fake that!

Also, I really should join a baseball team someday. >_>

Effort wasn't the issue. They just thought I sucked, and they were right of course. Not sure why they kept me around because they were pretty damn adamant about me not returning the next year.

I just think you got unlucky with the team then. Or American sports are far more serious than the ones up here. Community teams, which are far different from competitive, are almost solely based on effort.

Seriously, my team last year had some players who didn't know the rules of soccer, and had to learn them as we played. Didn't matter to most of the team, they treated them just as well as anyone else, because they tried. Wins/losses don't matter in those kinds of leagues, at least, not here, so that was never an issue.

Competitive is far different, but you have to try-out to make the team anyway, so skill doesn't often become an issue mid-season -- everyone there is already good.

The school I went to was nationally ranked in Football. I was put on the Junior Varsity team and they never really gave me much of a chance. So I got to watch a lot of games from the bench.

Meh, I dunno why I even bothered.

A serious answer: Study well for now, when you reach university and/or any other college things will change quite a bit and things will open up. You're home schooling could be a blessing in disguise as people in schools tend to have stupid ways of treating other people and you may just find avoiding this as well as oppression primary and secondary school teachers enforce on ya is better.

Children are cruel, college students are damn liberal.

Im not talking about democrats man. I'm talking about the kind of person who'd be open minded and willing to try things as much as a redlight hooker.

But on my point, going to some sorta uni or college, even the low-level ones, will shove all kinds of getting-to-know-people experiences in your face. From gaming clubs to god even knows what.

More over once in, student unions are the best thing ever. Letterkenny IT has a low point requirement and a kick ass S.U.
It may seem far off for fniff now. But I'd have to just add I was pretty cut off from the world too when I was his age. With no internet, no friends and no pastimes.
I wasn't home schooled neither. School was awful.

Some people are good at making friends. Sometimes that will be the thing to overcome your own inability.
If you can get along well with anybody then that's a good enough reason to start practising liking yourself. People are cunts. Persons are awesome!
Would be good to remember that one.
There'll always be people to reject as well as accept you, so long as you keep an open mind yourself and don't reject the idea so readily... Not saying ye do.

I was practically socially retarded until year 9 but I had friends. Other social retards mainly, and they were good friends.

Hehe, yeah. I've no idea how I made as many friends as I did. Especially in primary school.

In high school, a good number of 'em were from the grades above and below me.

For all those who're saying sports.....you've never seen Finn play sports, let's leave it at that.

I'm not much better at it either.

OP: Get out of the house. Your problem is that you don't really leave the house.

Leave the house.

LEAVE IT

The advice I always get when I ask how to meet people is join a group. It doesn't have to be a sport. Just pick something you're interested in and look for a local group that does something related to that.

At a professional level, yes. We care quite a bit about our sports teams, particularly our NHL teams.

But down at the junior level, and especially in community/house-league teams...yeah, those kids know they aren't going anywhere, so they don't care about each other's skill level.
