Sick Of Socializing

Everyone I've ever met has made me sick. I'm sick of the whole friend lifecycle. I get taken advantage of a few times, and it's over. The exact same thing with every new person I meet. Well fuck it, I don't want to know anyone new, I'm going it alone, and this covid shit is the icing on the cake.

If you’re having issues with every friend relationship that you have, isn’t it possible that the problem isn’t with the other people? Or, at the very least, that you’re half of the problem? Perhaps while you’re spending all that time alone you can do some serious reflection on what went wrong and how your own actions and behaviour contributed to the breakdown.

I see a lot of confessions like this over the last 6 months. But I never used to. I used to feel I was the only one this happened to, but now it seems like everyone is experiencing it. Sorry OP, sucks eh?

At least you realized this sooner rather than later, so it won’t happen again.

Better to not bother with new ones. I've kept a small handful of close friends from childhood, one from grade 1, one from high school, and 3 others I met in the early seventies when I landed here on the coast. All those other people though life, work and all else, very little contact. I have no need for new people. Old friends get each other, no need to explain one's self, just accepted as is. I hope you have at least one.

Don't waste your time.

A friendly relationship should feel mutually easy and pleasant.

Sounds like you're the problem, not the others

It’s a problem

because I think people are more narcissistic than ever before due to social media. They are trained to see others as simply a means to an end and friends become only competitors. Fewer and fewer people have the capacity to truly “see” others and to find other people interesting or to feel compassion for the struggles of others. It’s sad because we basically ARE each other. If you don’t like anyone else chances are you don’t really like yourself either, and you don’t see much depth in life in general. What is the point of an existence like that? We have brains and senses and emotions for a reason - to experience other people and life!! I think that this could be a direct reflection of some kind of energy you are putting out there, but also it is a bit of an epidemic you are picking up on. But there are people who see behind this and you can experience amazing relationships, don’t give up!!

Is it the new people in and of themselves

Or the fact that the media in which new people are typically presented to us (insta, dating apps) are turning people into commodities for consumption by other instant gratification junkies and strategically shortening the “friendship lifecycle” to that of a fruit fly?
