This is my first post I'm new to the forum and really hoping that somebody could provide me with some advice.
I'm twenty years old, I moved to the UK by myself at age 17 in search of a better life and more opportunities. I met my boyfriend here, I've got a good job and was able to purchase my first home which was all amazing but the one thing I feel is missing from my life is a friendship. I guess I just assumed that making friends would come naturally and over time but it just hasn't happened.
Myself and my boyfriend aren't very social, he doesn't like to go out and I don't know anybody that I could go out with. I feel completely trapped in my life.
I live alone and he lives with his family, it's fine when he's here but I don't like my own company and find that my depression is only worse when im alone and my mind has the chance to wonder, I would love to be able to have friends to talk to or go out with, a social life is so important to me and I haven't had one for such a long time it's really driving me crazy.
I've thought about starting a hobby but have no idea what? I don't have much money to spend and I have a chronic illness which leaves me very fatigued a lot of the time so i'm not able to go to exercise classes or anything like that.
I would appreciate any advice so, so much! Thank you
