I have felt like I barely made any new real friends. I have always liked my alone-time, so it does not bother me tremendously. With all my new ‘friends’, I feel like they gain more from the friendship than I do. I am the one they come to if they have personal issues. I am the funny and the nice one. It may sound harsh, but I noticed I mostly use them as external validation ‘devices’, so I can feel important, nice and funny. There is no real enjoyment for me that is purely coming from them. They just all seem so boring and uninteresting.
