A little something to make me sweeter.

My social relationships start out as acquaintance with classmates, coworkers, and roommates. Then they progress to casual friendships, in which I hang out in bars and do small favors (help carry stuff, give rides). Then they stagnate or die. I have little in the way of family, so "chosen family" is an ideal that appeals to me a lot. Sadly, I have no one like that and things aren't moving in that direction at all. [more inside]

I need serious help making friends.

I'm starting to give up hope that I'll ever be normal enough to make friends. I grew up with all online friends, decided to kick my social anxiety some two years ago, and went through all the hoops of that only to still have zero friends today. I've tried many things, which I'm going to list inside. I just want to know if there's anything out there, I don't care how crazy, that'll help me retain some friends. [more inside]

Need help building relationships with plutonic friends and f--kbuddies

"I can't seem to meet a man that fits my life. I have three kids, a career and hobbies that I love. Pretty much a full plate. I still have needs though. Rather than jumping into unworkable relationships for all the wrong reasons, which I have done repetitively, I am considering looking for both plutonic friends to meet the companionship needs, and f--kbuddies for the other needs. I would love to know any experiences you may have and tips for making it work." [more inside]
