Okay I'll admit, due to my somewhat introverted nature, I didn't put a lot of effort throughout college in establishing friendships. Now I'm in a situation where my friend-base is virtually nonexistent. I've lost contact with all of my friends in high school and I only have one close friend at the moment; but of course I would like more. I consider myself personable, very friendly, and have a broad interest of hobbies. I am by no means a HERMIT either. However, I still haven't been able to click with alot of people I've met through and out of college. People I befriend assume I'm much older than I actually am ALL THE TIME which ANNOYS me. I suppose its because of the way I carry myself and how I dress. I assume this factor discourages most people I interact with of considering any chance of friendship. I'm extremely socially isolated and I don't have many opportunities of meeting people. Now I'm beginning to battle an aversion to social interaction. I've reached a point where I've stopped befriending others because I've been unsuccessful in most of my efforts. Are there others who can relate to my situation? Any advice also? I'm doing something wrong here.
