I want to get better at meeting people and making new friends.
As an introvert, making friends is naturally more difficult for me. I also work as a nanny and go to school online, so it’s not like I can make friends at school or work. Bars and clubs aren’t really my thing, and online dating scares me. I do really like interacting with people in general, but I get overwhelmed easily. And I don’t know how to get someone’s contact info without being awkward.
I think the solution is to find places, like a coffee shop or bookstore, where I feel comfortable and that also facilitate meeting and talking to people. I need to leave the house for longer periods of time, and maybe actually follow through with my plan to sit and work in a coffee shop.
That’s it. I just really need to get out more. And talk to people who are not my family, my online classmates, or a five-month-old.
