There’s no turning back is there?

by Empty Husk

No matter how much I try to put myself out there, it seems people can sense you’re desperate for companionship and attention. I’ve tried calling acquaintances and whatever people I have left in my life and they really have no time for you anymore. Can’t say I blame them, they have lives and priorities of their own. Family comes first.

You also can’t make meaningful friendships past 30 now, can you? The people I know already have lives of their own and would put their families as their priority. They have no time for you, have to put in a schedule if they want to hang out with you and have no more time for small talks and chatter. Guess that comes with the age.

I really have no one to turn to. Why is it so hard to get out once you’re in this hole?

Volunteering is supposed to work. IDK.

There are no volunteer groups where I come from.

I’m also over 30 with no friends – I’ve tried joining sites like patook etc but the conversations always seem to stop after a few messages. I think I come off as desperate & don’t know how to change that, coupled with not really having any hobbies or things to talk about :/

I never made friends when I was younger & now don’t really know how to, I suppose. Sorry this is not a helpful comment, regardless I hope things get better for you ?

Oh my Gosh, this is so true.! The more you struggle, with keeping friends close, the more they wiggle out of your sight. I’m not ‘that age’ yet, but I can reassure you, that it’s not easy for me either. People just get so darn busy and I seem to be the only one who minds, that no one speaks to one another.
