Ask him if you can still tag along. Also a good idea is to find a Facebook your interested in and see if you can attend a meetup they have. Just be safe.
Try having a guy tell you he loves you after seeing him for a few months and then a few days later he tells you he likes another woman.
You haven't hung out with ANYONE for a whole year??? Either you live alone on a desert island or I'm sorry, because that's just terrible. Don't rely on guys for entertainment, get your own social life going, you'll be happier for it. Best of luck.
It doesn't even have to be about social anxiety or mental illness which, sadly, is the first conclusion people jump to and is a small fraction of the cases. I'm very extroverted but I struggle to find groups of friends with similar interests as mine in the area that I live in, and a large variety of life changes can upend your world and make the process of finding a new social circle quite a long one, including but not limited to: Leaving for college, graduation, marriage, divorce, relocating, changing jobs, death or illness in the family, military deployment, and the list goes on and on. Social lives after school years take a lot more work, and the older you get, the harder they are to restart if a life event has upended what you once had. A year passes by in the blink of an eye, so don't judge.
This type of story appears on FML way too often. Why is everyone waiting and relying on someone else to invite them to go out and be social? Take charge! Talk to people you work or go to school with. You WILL find someone with common interests, and if you have a suggestion ready to go, 9/10 times people will follow and you'll end up having a great, self-created social life.
That's not true at all. 9/10 when I've asked people to do things they say yes and then never show up. If your interests are not common, you won't find people with common interests very often. Unless you're saying to walk up to every single person and just start talking to them like a creep, it's very hit and miss as to whether or not you'll find people with common interests. People tend to hang out in groups and usually have ZERO interest in adding any more.
Although is not the best place to make friends, perhaps you should go to a bar in your area and start talking to a few people. Keep in mind that you should be rather careful, but just try to go to social events. You are sure to make friends there. You could also try to make friends online, but once again, you should be super careful about who you meet. Not exactly sure what you've been up to the past year, but you should definitely start socialising A tad more
