I'm so lonely bros, zero friends or dating experience. I am 26, all I have going for me is a decent income. I just sit at home otherwise. I've always struggled to fit in and socialize and now it really shows. I don't want to be alone forever. How do I overcome autism, social anxiety, and make friends?

    You have to leave your home and meet people IRL. There is no substitute.

    Preferably , you should find people with a common interest / value. If you are religious church can be an easy go to.

      I am a Christian, I haven't attended church in years though. I keep putting it off but shouldn't as I would really benefit from it. Any advice for first time back in a long time?

      boardgames or dnd

      I've wasted years on vidya, want to get into more active pursuits.

      Have you tried volunteering somewhere? Like some soup kitchen or a clean up?

      Thought about volunteering at animal shelters. Used to be a volunteer firefighter and had lots of fun with that but I don't have the time for it right now

        Stop thinking about doing it and just go to a service.

        , Church is about being welcome to all who want to accept Christ into their heart, last time I checked.

        For the social aspect, make sure you go to the service that has coffee afterwards. This is usually the morning one but not always. Once there just talk to people and introduce yourself

    No need to make friends.
    find a wife, woman who wants to settle down.
    marry her
    continue job , get good at it
    mentor others
    treat everyone positively

    --------

    so point is : make friends through work.

        professional and serious marriage websites.

        go there, fill your profile, your income, say i need to settle and looking for a wife.

        then go on meetings with possible potential partners.

        find one who is right for you

          Aren't those websites sketchy or virus websites? Otherwise I feel they would be much more common

      Pretty sure OP is one of you guys.
      He thinks fitting in is related to social anxiety, as though being abnormal invokes anxiety in him.
      That's normalgay behaviour, he's one of you guys

    Social anxiety: Have self esteem and be unburdened by the disapproval of others.
    Interact with people and choose to feel satisfied or calm, repeat until habit is formed.
    Autism: No fricking way you have autism, you poser.
    Make friends: Involve other people in your goals or get involved in other people's goals. Have shared struggles or shared enemies.

      My mom thinks I have autism but I think she's half joking. For a while I thought I was schizoid as I check many of the boxes and have some of the risk factors but I desire social interaction and don't actively seek seclusion which leads me to believe its something like social anxiety. I am abnormal and don't want to be normal, I just want to be happy, make friends, meet girls, live and experience life. It seems I never developed key social skills and struggle to connect with others and could use advise on how to do so.

    You're unironically fricked.
    You can make feeble "acquaintances" after age 25, but you can no longer form a real, long lasting friendship, possibly the cut-off age is even lower, maybe even 20. And it only gets harder to make new connections as you get older. For true bonding you need proximity, repeated unplanned interactions, and a setting that encourages people to let their guard down and confide in each other. This is why people meet their lifelong friends in elementary, high school or college. Research found that starting at age 25, we lose more friends than we make each year. In the professional world, "proximity" is hard to maintain, as work colleagues are reassigned or move on to new jobs. The workplace is a rather anonymous, superficial and competitive environment, so people usually hide personal details, vulnerabilities and quirks from colleagues. Once people start getting into serious long-term relationships in their 20s, the challenges only increase. Making friends with couples is like matchmaking for two. Children complicate things much more. Suddenly, you are surrounded by a new circle of parent "friends", but the emotional ties can be tenuous at best. You meet them because both of your children are friends, not you adults. And good luck if you remain childless, you have a good chance of losing your parent friend over the years as your daily routines grow to be vastly different. After 25, people also often experience internal shifts in how they approach friendship. Self-discovery gives way to self-knowledge, so you become pickier about whom you surround yourself with. After age 30 people concentrate more on maintaining their existing friendships than forming new ones. So even for childhood friends, the potential for detachment after age 25 grows. You can intentionally insert yourselves into the other's life, or you will slowly fade out of it.

    I am 39.

    I have no woman, I have no house, I have no money and live paycheck to paycheck. When will my real life begin bros? I'm tired of the grind, I'm tired of this life, just very very tired that's all.

    Anon I’m sorry but people stop wanting friendships around that age as they move towards starting a family. I think people tend to see how meaningless friendships really are. Why exactly do you want friends?

    Personally I couldn’t give a frick about finding a friend I just want a gf.
