thanks for the reply's guys. i guess im just going to have to push myself to be more proactive ( no reference to the product i've tried it and its shit lol) when it comes to talking to people.
i checked and im not allowed pets in my building which is pretty annoying ive always wanted a dog . I am a member of a gym its just so hard to chat to people because they all have headphones on but I'll keep trying.
overall i still feel lonely and time seems to drag when im at home. im looking forward to going back up north in two weeks to visit my parents and also to meet up with old friends so im hoping that that will build up my confidence and mood again.
Sasch83 thats a great idea about trying to connect with other acne.org users, i'll look into it. they should definitely put a feature on the site to set up meetings/ days out in your area
