Well I've come to enjoy not having friends, but I still hate the way my parents and other people expect me to be out there living life and partying, it only makes reality even more depressing :P if I had the money for a motel I might do the same.. Or just sleep in the car for the night. I think I know what I'm doing this weekend... ;)

because people who like you for your money are alwaus great friends! they always stay there for you even when you lose all of your money! finding genuine friends hard! now, if you will excuse me, I am meeting some friends at a motel 8

41-"Today, I made a friend via FML. FML." Thread- I don't mind having few friends that I know well compared to thousands that I have to check a profile page for to remember their name. Its just...better.

I'm a pretty weird mofo myself, but the first thing I could tell you is that you need to find like-minded individuals. You don't want random jackass sons o' bitches as your friends; you want people that have your back and shit. Throwing money at a hotel won't get you anything but a drained wallet.

The easiest way to find friends for socially awkwards such as myself is; find other socially awkwards.
After you find one socially awkward person, you can find many.
Now go make friends.

It's not that simple actually. OP could be socially awkward. He may not have any connections in his life to be able to make friends. He may have tried to make friends but people may have disregarded him. Also, if he does find friends it doesn't necessarily mean they'll want to party.

Actually he could have a phobia. When you start going to great lengths to convince people you are normal, that is just how far outside of normal you are. You should probably be talking to someone about this, like yesterday.

Ive been there to. I think everyone has been there once or twice. But once I started trying I realized its not really that hard to find friends. Even people who are considered complete "freaks" at my school have people they sit and talk with. You just have to find someone with the same interests as you. Now go and get some friends OP!

I've been there, its all up to you sweetheart just go out and make friends. It may be hard to overcome the social anxiety, but if your over 21 go to a bar and take a shot of whiskey then nurse a beer and gain some courage to talk to the person next to you. You're the only one who can change your situation.

Bars and clubs are about the worst places to go if you want to interact with people, even if you already know them; you can barely see or hear them. If you don't already know them, there's basically no chance; maybe you can overcome shyness enough to say hello to a stranger once, but not enough times for them to actually hear you, or even if you do there's nothing to talk about.

Not all bars are loud. Just think of "Cheers". I bartend and will say it's a great place to socialize, even if you don't drink. I have lots of guests that only drink iced teas and order an appetizer or two. Bars are a great place to meet people from all walks of life. I rarely see guys "hook up" with the ladies but the bond between long term friends are tight! Even dance clubs have spots where you can go to get away from the loud music. (:

#55, I don't think so. Bartenders can barely stand to chat with me, much less other patrons. I usually go alone and I must give off this axe-murderer vibe. Oh, well.

"We headed to the bar, baby don't be nervous
No shoes, no shirt, and I still get serviced"

I think you took that "Sexy and I Know It" song too close to heart. ;)

55- I agree. The place I bartend is usually pretty quiet. I have a lot of bar regulars that became close friends with each other. Some bars are a great place to meet friends.
