This website gave me good advice in the past but now I have approached another bridge in my life that I need to get across but I don’t know what to do. I am 38 and I have no friends. I am an unhappy introvert who wants to change because I want to end my loneliness. Over the past year and a half with the help of this website, I have tried very hard to make new friends by going to many social events thanks to meetup.com which was recommended from a post. In the beginning it was very hard for me but I did gain confidence to go up to total strangers and introduce myself and start a conversation. But here is my problem. I can’t sustain the conversation and keep the attention of the other person. The conversation always ends the same way with disappointment. This happens every time for me and I have become very frustrated. What do I need to do to change this. I have read many books on how to make good conversation and I have used all the methods mentioned but none of it is helping. Thanks.
