Making Friends As an Adult

I'm not good at making friends.

Growing up my only friends were our next door neighbors.

I did not venture far to make friends.

I could be friendly, but I didn't know how to be friends.

I didn't know how to invite people over to my house, to have get-togethers, to hang out at the mall.

I never invited people over for my birthday. My parents didn't either.

Our family liked to be alone.

So I need to go to friend school.

I need to figure this shit out so I don't end up alone watching TV in my house with ten cats. Though that sounds pretty good.
