What are you into? Try joining online groups. For example, I’ve met some pretty cool people playing Clash of Clans and Call of Duty Mobile. We hang out, chat, bitch about life, etc, like normal people do. It takes a bit of time to build these little relationships with internet strangers, but you get to have fun playing some games while you’re casually getting to know people.

If games aren’t your thing, you could try Meetup groups. It was easier pre-COVID, but there may be groups that meet virtually for whatever interest you may have (gaming, movies, books, music, whatever). I haven’t looked into this, but it’s possible some groups even have socially distanced hikes or bonfires or things like that.

I would also suggest trying to be polite and confident. If people are meeting you but genuinely don’t want to be your friend for whatever reason, you could be a factor. No offense at all. I, for example, was too needy and demanding and learned to dial it back and chill out more, as well as have more of a filter when I spoke, and people have responded well. And I grew confidence so the cycle seemed to feed itself to where it was easier to meet and get to know people. It also helps to ask people about themselves/their day/whatever and listen when they respond. Little stuff like that.

I’m sorry you’re having trouble making friends - it can be tough as an adult, and doubly (infinitely?) so in a pandemic. But you can do it! Good luck!! 😃😃❤️😊

idk... if some rando says they'll pay for my friendship, I'm always gonna think they'll have ulterior motives and they'll feel like they own you so you have to do what they want, even creepy stuff.
