Without Friends

It seems that have difficulties to make friends and the difficulty to connect with other persons is a common denominator between Maladaptive Daydreamers.

Nevermind is it is due to social inability, a side effect of daydreaming or that we are too much time away of “this world”, and that when “we come back to earth” we don´t have enough experience.

Now we have a forum, a Meeting point, a place with people like us. Daydreamers without friends. Perhaps this group is not a  good place to make friends. Provably. But who knows?

I have always surrounded myself with small groups of friends, which is easily managable. No body knows that I do this, but I think it's starting to become obvious, I try to stop it but I think its the main reason not many people want to be friends with me. Big groups of people are my worst nightmare, I'll just sit their quietly in the corner and let everyone do their thing, but I always catch people looking at me weird which makes me think i'm doing something that i''m not aware of. The friends I do have, i love to pieces but I dont feel like I can talk to them about it so I do feel very isolated.

Hi! I have problems making deep profound connections with friends because of MDD, while I have no problems making superficial friends I would rather have best friends, the ones I had I lost them because I rather be daydreaming. I would really like to meet someone wi MDD to share experiences and be friends :)

I developed my MDD because i lost all my friends and this was how I coped.

When I joined this group I felt alone and I only had one best friend. Now I have a lot of friends and even if I still have some issues actually writing to them or calling them, it's amazing that when I do call them, they are there for me. We didn't meet in the last five years? Who cares, we can still go and get a drink somewhere and reconnect. I was amazed, but it really works like this. I'm probably not their first choice when they think about going out, but it's okay. When I need them they are there for me and I hope one day they will need me too. I have to work hard to get there, but it's worth it.

Hi everyone! I feel so identified with this, I dont even know where to start. I have very complicated feelings with the very concept of friendship. I have always felt left out by my friends, like if i was a zero to the left or something. I have never been able to have that kind of close bound with other people, because opening my heart is so hard, and anxiety avoids me from talking to people and making new friends. So, of course, I feel lonely and daydreaming has been a coping mechanism for my loneliness. My characters are symbols of the close relationship I wish I had.

Hi! I'm new here and it's just so nice to read about other's experience with MD. I don't really have friends either, but it doesn't really bother me either. Sometimes I do get very lonely and wish I could meet someone like myself but then, If they were like me, we would probably just be very quiet friends. I hate small talk, it seems so pointless to me. I would gladly discuss/debate an interesting intelligent  topic but most people don't seem to think much about anything! How do they DO that???  I can't stop thinking! I often ponder about life, the human condition, why we are here ect. and then off course there are my dreams - they are so absolutely wonderful!  They are the only part of my life that isn't serious. To be honest, although I'm a very responsible person,  I actually hate being an adult!!!  It's just so boring, restrictive and uninteresting. I am so glad to be here

I have a few friends, but don't feel close to them like the way I feel should, which is in part due to the daydreaming I think. It's ironic b/c I'll often daydream about having friends and great, close relationships but in reality that is not the case

As a child, I watched others have friends but I wasn't allowed to by my parents who felt that I would be easily influenced into doing bad things. The only time I interacted with kids was at school, as a result I can't socialize with people as an adult. It feels awkward for me. I want to have friends, I've always wanted it but I feel safer chatting to people through social media than in person. I want to blame my parents for not allowing me to develop normally and sometimes I do but perhaps they didn't think they were doing anything wrong. In my dream world, I have an abundance of friends who are loyal, loving and caring. They love my company, they have become like another family. So basically I created my friends and life as I would have preferred it in the real world.

I had one friend in San Antonio but I moved to Colorado, then 2 years later I met someone who was a really close friend but she ended up moving to San Antonio. She comes to colorado once a year so I don't see her often.

I thought something was wrong with me; I am friendly, I know a lot of people, I am in multiple groups, I volunteer in different things , and I'm a counselor yet I always feel alone, and I keep asking myself why can't I hold on to these relationships? and I didn't have a name for my compulsive dreaming that I enjoy most of the time and I didn't know how to put it into words without it being awkward and now here I am reading that I am definitely not the only one with this issue--what a relief!
