Shutting Myself Off From People

I started taking dance classes at the beginning of the new year. I love dancing and it's honestly the only thing that makes me happy. In a way dancing saves my life everyday. But I've noticed how introverted I am. I don't really talk to people in my dance classes outside of some small banter/ small talk. It's possible I could make friends with the other girls there but I don't have any optimism toward the matter. Regardless if I make new friends or not, people always go away eventually. I've seen nearly every friend I've ever had walk out of my life. And I don't want to invest time into someone just to watch them go away.

It also seems like nobody is interested in being my friend. I've tried to use Tinder to look for friends and everyone just wants to have sex with me. Which I guess is the price of being a young woman in her mid 20's. I'm just a sex object to other people, even other women. I'm not interested in a relationship right now because I feel like I've neglected making strong friendships for the last few years. Nobody seems to want friendships anymore.

I get lonely and sad at times but at least I have dancing. At least I have something that makes me happy. Being alone isn't that bad when you have a hobby you're passionate about. Dancing makes me feel alive. I want to share that happiness with someone but it's not likely.

You have your dancing, you have your friends and you have us!

Glad it makes you feel alive, what kind of dancing is it?

isn't tinder a dating app? 🤔

@Nihiless my point being if ur using a dating app to find friends, ofc most of them on there are going to be looking for sex. 🤔

That's very admirable. 🙏 I keep fit by running and kickboxing, it keeps me happy even if only for a while. 🤝
