Default depressed because I have no friends

I was diagnosed with APD a year or two ago and depression for many moons now. I have not had a face to face friend for over a decade. When I think about it, it bums me out. I don't know what to say to new people.

I have lots of acquaintances but no friends. I think about 50% of people these days don't have ONE solid friend. I don't. Not one.

A good friend is hard to come by... especially with people in our situation. I know I’m not the most outgoing of people. I was very lucky I met my wife, she is my best friend! Good luck in your search!

[COLOR="Ma i am the same way and i am really thinking i have this disorder even though i am not diagnosed. I have no friends because i think everyone is better than me and i dont know how to talk to pepole, so i stay home by myself. This has grown worse in the last few years i have been like this. I get lonely but i cant bring myself to go out anywheres because i have a fear of trying to talk to people i dont even know what i would say and then i would make a fool of myself trying to talk to people when i dont even know how

Do you have any interests like hiking, skiing, ice skating, or foreign languages? In my area we have a variety of related meetup groups, and some such meetings are quite suitable for people with social anxiety. In hiking you don't need to talk much and you may walk off anxiety at the same time. Some meetups are just walks in local parks or gardens without any too lively conversations.
