I'm practically 30 years old and I'm just as lonely and isolated as I was five years ago. My youth is gone, and as society is extremely ageist, any chance of finding friends has decreased. I've tried everything that I can think of but I'm still lonely and isolated. My paltry social skills have atrophied and the outlook is quite bleak. Nobody is enthusiastic about interacting with me and it's consuming me. I'm just a tired, lonely, contemptible husk.
