Some people naturally have heaps of friends, and there are some who have a few.
It is true that your personality affects the friends you make – much research has been carried out about friendships
One conclusion claims that people who are more open to experiences are the ones more likely to have a diverse friendship group.
See what kind of a friend you are and where you think you fit in the friendship scheme of things here – it’s fascinating stuff.
This can be due to many reasons.
But we are not talking about that now.
Maybe, you love life flying ‘solo,’ you like the freedom it gives.
You love the independence and the in-control feelings it gives you, not being beholden to anyone else but yourself!

21 Things to do When You Have no Friends
1) Try out a different, new workout class
And it will have positive effects on you as you bond, learn tolerance and yet improve on your athletic performance.
2) Have a spa day
Being on your own does not mean letting yourself go.
You feel good and ooze confidence, drawing people towards you.
Get a massage, get a new haircut, and lose weight…
So much to experience!
3) Get organized
Clean up and organize your life, your home, your workspace.
You will find how therapeutic it can be!
You don’t even need friends to do this task.
Staying organized is one of the best things you can do to yourself.
4) Traveling solo
Take a solo trip and who knows, you might even find the love of your life!
So never think for a second that having no friends means boredom.
Solo traveling is indeed one the sweetest (if the not the cutest) things to do when you have no friends.
And trust, you’ll enjoy every bit of it!
5) A new passion or hobby will take you far
Life is short, so now is the time to accomplish what you have always dreamed of.
It could be gardening, photography, or skydiving – see how accomplished, busy and entertained you will be.
6) Invite yourself to your own dinner
Eating by yourself in a restaurant of your choice might seem intimidating to some.
I’ve tried this myself, and it went fantastically well even though my cooking was terrible – LOL.
I’m not a good cook, but I know you are.
So try this out and let me know in the comment section how it went.
7) Go to the movies
Escaping the world on your own is fantastic.
There is always a new movie in the theatre, and you can easily get carried away in no time.
You can even re-watch exciting ever-green movies that always make you smile.
I remember going to the theatre whenever any of my favorite movies is on display.
We became close friends eventually.
8) Read a book because it’s genuinely an excellent companion
And learning about how others have lived their lives.
Don’t just read a familiar book and call it a day.
Immerse yourself with new books that are entirely outside your comfort zone.
9) A home improvement project will make you feel grand
This is one of the perfect things to do when you have no friend and believe you are going to love it!
If you are lost in ideas, you can look up some home improvement blogs on Google, and you’ll get great tips and ideas to implement.
10) Get lost
Please, this is not an insult.
What I mean is – Go on a drive!
This is really of the best fun activities for people with no friends.
As you watch the world go by, dreaming and contemplating what you have done and still plan to do – you will feel wiser, stronger and so self-sufficient!
Getting out of your environment is a fascinating thing to do.
And it has helped a lot of people find meaning in life when they have no friends or are just bored.
11) Make something you love, and eat it
Don’t go to the shop and buy what you usually love to have with your tea or coffee.
Make your own.
It might even get you on your road of taking control of your health and weight.
Many people especially youngsters frown at the thought of making something as opposed to buying them.
But if you genuinely want to get over boredom when you are alone with no friends, this is an absolute must.
12) Figure out what your mantra is
Every guy and gal needs their own mantra.
Maybe it’s a special one that a friend gave you once.
How’s this one?
Or this one,
13) Take a hike
And by taking a hike I don’t mean go for a normal hiking activity.
You can go to the nearby park at a time you know it’s going to be lonely.
I especially love the seaside.
It makes the process incredibly fascinating.
14) Relax at home
Being on your own at home might be a rare occurrence for you between your job, Life, and other activities.
Turn your home into the place you ‘love to come home to,’ the place that restores and heals.
I know it may seem offbeat but trust me, you are going to enjoy every moment of it.
15) Treat yourself
It might be that once-in-a-lifetime trip, a concert, an adrenalin-rush outdoor activity.
Make it a point to treat yourself to it, without anybody’s permission to do so – you’ve earned it!
It’s always good to unwind.
16) Act like a kid
What fun to do something you haven’t done since you were a kid.
It may sound crazy, but it’s enjoyable.
Acting like a kid will make you remember your childhood memories and boy, that feeling is simply amazing.
Sometimes days, be they with or without friends, can feel as if you are up against the world, right?
If you are in a low place, it might be a surprise for you to learn many others are feeling the same
- Closer to you than you think
- Less fortunate than you
- Fighting their own battles.
It’s a great way to show people what you are made of, what makes a difference to you as you make a difference in the life of others.
18) Create a piece of art
Everybody has a creative side and so do you.
So get experimenting!
What about making a piece of jewelry, maybe some pets furniture that cats will love to climb on or birds will love to sit on?
What about crafting something that inspired you, from Pinterest, for example?
19) Continue your education
It is never too late to learn something new or continue what you started years ago.
When you learn a new skill, you realize just how capable and smart you are.
There are so many places on the internet you can go and learn new skills.
It could be digital or non-digital (physical skills).
20) Complete a random act of kindness
Did you know that you can make a massive impact on a stranger’s life, never mind your own?
It is always good to be kind as there are huge rewards that result from being generous.
It will give you a real peace of mind knowing you’re putting smiles on people faces.
Nothing can beat that.
21) Be full of bright hope
Dream about the future – fill your mind with bright hope, contentment, and moving-forward dreams that will change your life!
You are in charge of your own destiny – ‘just do it’ – with or without friends.
So there you have it!
It’s up to you to decide how you want to live your life.
Friends or no friends, you can get on with life just like everybody else.
