Making friends these days
I think its so hard to make friends these days just because no one tends to say what they feel? Either, you adapt this mindset where you're thinking "we're not close enough to...." or "am I annoying if...." or "I can't show interest because I'll seem desperate / weird". I think it's the same with relationships too? maybe they're intertwined like that. I feel like, maybe it's just my perception, but It's hard to make friends because people already have their 'friend groups', and even if you talk its like I said, you don't think you can ask them to hang out because you're not close enough but also like, how else are you going to get closer if you don't hang out? And then there's also "are we having a good time because we're becoming friends or are you trying to start a 'situationship', flirt, maybe an actual relationship?" and if you bring it up maybe It'll be awkward for the friendship or whatever. It also takes a lot of energy to give and get nothing back or feel different people out. I don't know I just think growing up and making friends is so complicated for no reason ??
