I am sorry

I'm sorry for not engaging when someone sends a message offering support. I don't know what to say to people. I don't want to get close to anyone because I am not worth anyone's time. I'm just too weird and not what a person my age should be. I don't feel mentally strong enough...

I often feel that I don't know what to say to a depressed person here that is not banal.

Why do you think you're not worth anyone's time? Let them be the judge of that, if they do engage then they must think you're worth it.

@Waitingaround2die are there no local community clubs you can join and meet new people? There's lots of lonely people looking for companions, just to chat with a couple of times a week or go for a drink with.

@Richard65 there's a few places but all I see is teenagers hanging around and no one my age. By now, everyone of my age range has mostly figured their life, careers and have families of their own...I am so many years behind

@Waitingaround2die not everyone your age has done that at all. So many are unsure, anxious, in need of friends. I think you've built an unreal version of life in your mind and it's made you sad as you've convinced yourself that you're behind or you've failed. It's not a competition, it's not a race. I know couples who are unhappy, but stay together because they have to, because they have bills to pay or whatever. Believe me, I know guys who'd envy your freedom as a single guy. You've narrowed your vision into ticking boxes you think you need to achieve in order to be a "successful adult". All that matters is your happiness, and that doesn't necessarily rely on children, cars, houses, marriage, a well paid job. What really matters to you? What do YOU really want? Don't allow society's expectations to influence your choices or your happiness. My friend lives alone, has no girlfriend and loves listening to music and going to gigs. That makes him happy. He'd be horrified to imagine being married or having kids.

I don't need much engaging ... perhaps that's unsocial...I have learned to live with it
