I've been alone and lonely for a good for years now, I mean I have my boyfriend but whenever I'm not around him, reality sets in and I realise I'm still lonely. I don't know what to do, and I feel like I struggle to socialise now too to try and make friends because it's been so long since I've had some.
It’s never too late to make friends! I encourage you to take some time to think about where you could make a friend, and maybe speak to your boyfriend about it too because maybe he will have some ideas. You could look into speaking more to a person you work with, go to school with or someone online who has similar interests to you. Starting a conversation can be as simple as introducing yourself and asking if it’s ok if you hang around/with them while you’re where you are. From there let them lead conversation, and if they don’t then maybe try to ask questions about whatever it is about where you are or why they’re there, etc. And don’t expect to be great at this straight away, but over time you’ll definitely get better! I hope this helps :)
