people who are single and lonely, how are you dealing with it?

Picture this:

You’re on the internet, you see a funny video about a skeleton telling jokes. You laugh your head off until your sides are sore. When you recover you think to yourself “man I should show this to my friend they’ll laugh so hard at this”.

And then you remember.....you don’t really know your “friends” as well as they know each other... ....what if they don’t find the video funny? .....and because they don’t find it funny you end up looking like an idiot for thinking they would... ....because that’s what you are... ....the fool no one takes seriously because in all your years of social awkwardness that’s the only act you’ve ever been able to nail.... ........you laugh sadly to yourself and carry on with your day..... ....that is how I’m dealing with it......
