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?

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!

I was just thinking that many of us here have issues with friends or don't have any or many friends.  Why don't we start by making friends with other here?  We all have MD so we know what it's like and such, so that's one thing we have in common.

I've had friends here and there since I've moved. I've even had short lived relationships. Its been awhile since I've actually had a friend though. I have to almost two years now since I've really had somebody i could hang out with. I do try to have conversations but I just put up this fake, polite, front. So now i just keep to myself everywhere i go. I stay up in my head the majority of the time and believe me i have a lot of time to myself. I guess you'd say it's the life i want.

I find it hard to carry a conversation. I can imagine myself having ac onversation with someone I know, and the conversation can be very extensive and deep; however, when I actually try to talk to them, it is brief and superficial. Other times people will talk to me, and it almost impossible for me to pay attention becuase what is going on in my head is far more interesting.

I have some friends but I always, feel so alone. Like I have no one to talk to. No one who truly understands me. Everyone I meet is disgusted or creeped out by me but it is my nature. I love grotesque things and darkness and the unusual. But I guess no one understands what I like or how I feel about certain things. I'm dark. I just am. And people do not like the ones who like dark places and do dark things but I am not evil and I am not sick. I don't think awful thoughts or do sickening things. I like the dark but not the fire and if your lost in darkness I'll be happily obliged to lead you out.

- Okay, this was the most hilariously sarcastic welcome message one could come up with, even if it's automatic. 

So...yeah. I have one friend, my best friend... and well, I have friends, if you count them even though we never talk or meet with each other. It's my fault. I love them, but I just... I never call them, because it's so much easier for me to sit down and daydream and be witj imaginary people who understand everything instantly. I can talk to people, but deep down, I always think they hate me, or bored and only talk to me because they are polite. I honestly don't know what should I do... I can't just call everyone and start acting clingy all of a sudden.. and we're busy people, we don't have time, they don't have time... I barely leave the house, I can't even get to know people through the internet.

Its very tough to connect with people when u have MD. I do not have frnds in true sense. Only one who lives far away. All my frnds are characters in my fantasy. I feel very lonely and alone.
