ANybody know of a support group or anything to help an adult learn how to make friends? I am socially adept at work, but no where else. I made a decision when I was a child to keep separate my friends from school, home and family. This was easy as a kid, my school was so far away. When I moved and went to high school, I was in the school's neighborhood, so I didn't make ANY friends. I became good at not having friends, now I regret that, but don't know how. I feel needy and like I would be over stepping a boundary trying to be friends with coworkers. If they refuse, I would feel rejected, and feel that they would feel awkward around me, and tell other people how much of a dork I am. I have a hard time trusting people. I know I can, but getting past the first hurdle seems impossible to me.
