I cannot read body language well, I hate eye contact, and I always say or do the wrong things (NOT on purpose). I’ve tried to train myself. In some ways, it’s gotten better.. but I still cannot make friends. They probably notice things about me that I have no idea about.

Once kids turn about 11-12 years old, they begin to spot my social awkwardness in a way that I don’t understand how. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I just can’t have friendships.
