Thanks that seems pretty helpful thanks for taking the time to write all that.
I am 17 by the way. To be honest, I don't see myself joining the defence forces and sadly I can't drive yet. But I should probably consider joining a sports group. And I'll look into some more hobbies to do.
Your response was really helpful and I just want to thank you for that!
The first thing you have done here is acknowledge your problem and then ask for help remeding it- so good for you.
I have several suggestions and you can take or leave them depending on your nature and interests.
Firstly is that I joined the Defence forces at 17yo. I gained a profession, adventure, friends, worthy cause serving my country and good pay, low meals and accommodation costs. It launched me into my future. Something to consider if helathy.
Next is that you dont mention your age. That is crucial to advice. I'll assume yo are around 17-18yo. Once you have income and savings then a few things become possibles. Firstly I would conside a van, like a delivery van so you can up and leave your abode and go to the beaches, mountains anywhere you want to camp overnight or much longer. This will open up meeting many other people. There is a app called WIKICAMPS AUSTRALIA that I use to show you where facilities are at any camp like water, showers/toilets, near a freeway, has shade, muddy entry etc etc. So you can plan your trip in advance. Depending on your accomodation at home you could buy a pup, People gravitate towards small dogs, we have a mini foxy and we meet people all the time that stop and talk.
Expand your friends base, like a production line you have to turn over your friends meeting new people all the time and the more you meet the more likely you will find a close friend that feels like you. Also while single and not in a relationship, it can be lonely.
The final suggestion is clubs, golf, bowls, model airplanes, racing cars, or similar. Consider your past interests and go from there.
Good luck TonyWK
