Could use more friends!

Since I don't have any friends in my "real" life (outside of this app) I would like more friends on here that use this app more like social media and still stay active and post stuff, I would like to meet more people here around my age (21) but anyone who sends me a friend request will be accepted :smiley: A little about me: I have lost 18 pounds, I have been struggling with depression for years now and its slowly fading away, I am 13 days nicotine free, 13 days alcohol free, and I will be starting up college in about a week to be a full time student working on my associates degree and I want to major in Nutrition to become a Nutritionist. Like I said I have no friends outside of this app, I have very bad social anxiety and I am trying my best to be more social, I go to the gym everyday and try to smile at people and make eye contact, I tried to do a cycling class but had an anxiety attack and left to just lift weights alone.

    Been there. 30m. I definitely commiserate with the social anxiety. I have yet to join a gym because I hate the feelings of being judged, so my journeys been alone as well. It's going well, I log every day, and am very goal oriented. I gave up cigarettes several months ago and never really drank.

    ^^^this made me laugh so hard :D:D:D:D ! All I can say Jonathan is that it does get better over time. You have to conquer your mind when it comes to social anxiety which can be tougher than weight loss by itself. Great job on taking the first steps. You can add me if you like. Best wishes ;)

    I'm 27 and I've used this site before, but just recently joined again. I'm trying to lose weight from my pregnancy (5 years ago). I don't have any friends in real life or on social media, but I'd love to make some friends here and get support. Please read my post http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10620978/looking-for-a-friend-support-system#latest before adding me :)

    Recently widowed and struggling with memory problems, but super motivated to lose weight and be healthier. Anyone can add me! I post every day, but not too much that it’s annoying!
