i ever thought of joining the outing but there is this fear in me, sometimes i am afraid of meeting people, when i am tired i look very dead and with very few words. i am afraid that others will feel bored or uncomfortable being with me. haiz...

In that case, make sure you are not tired when you do go out to meet people.
Its a lose lose situation if you don't meet people because you think they will be bored with you!

I think sometime I just felt the same way as you, I just do not want to see people around me. But I feel I need more friends and need a buddy to talk to. Never mind, everything we can learn, be the first one to make a move, things will get better!
curious about everything!

Hi jt03,

Don't worry too much about what others think & I'm sure you'll discover you're more interesting than you think you are! :wink:

Some of us are going out this Fri night. You're welcome to join us if you've got nothing planned. :D

Hey jt03,

If you don't mind me asking but are you an engineer of some sort? I thought I am the only one with few friends and I've observed also other engineers I've worked with also have a few friends too. Hmm....stigma man.

If you need someone to talk to, PM me ya?

to make friends, first you have to treat other people as friends, not other people treat you as a friend first.

wow thanks for so many advices, hmm... i know i have to take the initiative to talk to others but i don't know what to talk about. Most of the time i will tend to think very hard what should i talk about. I am studying building and real estate management, belong to engineering department too.
