Would you find it weird if someone you didn't know that well called you up and asked you to hang out?
I'm 27 and I only have 2 proper friends, one of which I hardly see. I feel awfully pathetic sometimes but I find it really hard to make friends. I know a few girls casually that I think I'd like to be friends with, but I don't feel like I know them well enough to just call them up out of the blue and say "hey, wanna hang out?". Plus, it seems like everyone else already has a set group of friends and doesn't need more. I feel like I have this barrier in my head when it comes to social interactions, like I can never get it quite right. I don't often seem to be able to get past small talk. I think a big part of the problem is that naturally I want to be friends with smart, interesting, fun people, but I'm often intimidated by them at the same time.
I think I'm feeling a little down on myself for spending yet another Friday night at home on my sofa :P
