i want friends but i honestly can’t connect with people on an emotional level. i don’t know how to talk to people, it makes me seem uninterested but i just don’t know what to say most of the time.
Perhaps it’s just a case James of not talking to the right people. I’ve met people such as yourself and can therefore guarantee you’re not the only one who think like that argo, those kind of people would probably love to talk to you 😉
This is true for me, I can rarely connect with anyone irl but once I do find someone who I can click with mentally and emotionally the friendship runs pretty deep. It’s about finding your people, and that’s a (sometimes lonely) journey.
I found this podcast episode to be really interesting regarding how we make friends. Hope it helps you too James: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/invisibilia/id953290300?i=1000536430317 (“Invisibilia: Nun of Us Are Friends” if you’re not on Apple)
