"The best advice, I can give to you, is that You need to get out of your Comfort Zone.  Challenge Yourself.  How did I do this?  One, I started going to a Book Club at  my local library, which was peopled by a bunch of women.…"

"I'm definitely much quieter when I'm the new person in the group, but quiet and reserved is certainly the opposite of who I am once I get used to people. It takes time and, I guess, I just want to know who I'm dealing with."

Difficulty with being confident/making friends

Hey guys. I am currently a guy in my mid-20s who has a problem with talking to other guys and establishing friendships with them. Whatever I see a group of guys get together and hang out, they seem so confident and have a great time chatting with each other. I want to be in a group and have a good time and experience the joys of hanging out with good buddies, but I lack the confidence and have poor self-esteem to even meet new people. I can be quite shy, and always fear that I would be just…See More

Chris J. replied to Liam's discussion Should an atheist wear a cross?
"I think it's okay for an atheist to wear the cross. I think it shouldn't just have a religious meaning alone, but something that is of value, especially if its passes down from generation to generation. That's the way I look at it. I…"
