How did you meet your friends and/or partners?

Aside from a few folk, I've lost most of my friends. They just got sick of me not being around I guess (I was hiding/rotting away in my bedroom due to mental illness).
At the weekends, if I'm not going to the football, I won't see anyone I know and won't speak a single word to anyone. From finishing work on a Friday I basically have no contact with anyone until I go back on the Monday. Of course if I go to the football then I see friends.
One of my best friends from school I still speak to now and again, and he's coming up next month. 
I need friends.

You come across a decent guy DA, maybe put yourself out there a bit, I get that with some anxieties thats actually the hardest bit but believe me just actually going for it is the only hard bit. Have you thought about maybe joining a gym and going to some classes? That way you don’t have to arrange anything, gets you used to socialising in groups and you’ll naturally make some mates? Loads of gyms out there for like 15-20 quid a month. Or maybe join a campaign group or political party or something where you can just go along?
Went through a bad spell after uni of depression and the job market not being that great (graduated the month before the stock market crash I think), so ended up where I am now in the public sector, worked shifts so drifted away from my uni/school mates who didn’t really understand why I couldn’t go out every time they asked. This made relationships hard, dated some girls in work etc but found myself stifled, dating someone from work meant you’re always talking about work, shared friends are mostly work mates and it got me down, so I did online dating, well for a week, went on 2 dates, 1 girl a teacher, nice lassie but no spark, second date was the wife, found it easy to chat to her, arranged to meet up, shes my mrs and best friend, couldnt ask for a better influence in life, 9 years later, married, our first kid and shes encouraged me with my career.

I went to my mate's house and outside tread on a dog turd and their neighbour told me to not worry as that was a lucky omen! Shite promptly cleaned, me and my mates were downing the weekly dose of El-D and decided to hit the clubs. I think we had about 20 quid between us! Got to a, then,  'fashionable' nightclub and were having a great laugh before a couple of lasses joined us. 'What will the ladies have?' I bellowed, before realising I,we were  penniless! Later I walked her home and 3 years later were were married. Over 30 years later she is still the love of my life.

Started off by meeting mine at the airport around three in the morning on a fairly regular basis. Introduced my work colleague to her sister who also worked at the airport. Result a double wedding. My brother in law died a few years back but  I will be celebrating our sixtieth  anniversary with my soulmate and love of my life in October.

Aye, these Zeppelins took a lot of holding down when passengers wanted to get off or on.

Moved to Glasgow for uni. Started working in the Subway. Made mates who worked there. Ended up with one of their burds.

No longer mates with the guys. Still with the burd (14 years or so).

wrong choice.
