    I've noticed that I don't really have any friends. In my free time, always spend the time in front of my compter endlessly surfing the net. I no longer wanna live my life this way but at the same time I don't know what to do. I have major trouble meeting new people as I am an introvert. Do you guys have any suggestions for me?

    I think you're more of an extrovert stuck in the introvert lifestyle. If you were really an introvert you'd have no problem with the lifestyle. I think it's more about a fear of meeting new people. Is it?

    depending on your age get a p/t job at a local mall, thats what i did when i moved to philly. The closest person i knew was 300 miles away, i've made 2 good friends from working at the mall for 3 months and through them met other people.

    You don't have an excuse. Start participating in "ATTN: Houston Crew" threads in the off topic forum, then come to meats.

    For the thread starter, get involved in something - church activities, volunteer at the local animal shelter, etc.

    I wonder if that's all it takes though. Activities would help the threadstarter meet people but I'm assuming he already does encounter people during the course of the day but might not have the social skills to turn those encounters into something more.
