Reality Check

Facebook friends are not enough

| June 27, 2011

Dear Carolyn,

I am a pretty lonely guy and can’t seem to figure out why. I am a professional truck driver, in good shape and am well read. I also have nearly 600 “friends” on Facebook. What do you think I’m doing wrong?

Billy

Dear Billy,

Driving a pick-up truck doesn’t make a guy a trucker any more than having 600 Facebook friends makes a guy popular. You have to meet real humans in order to play with humans. Stop focusing so much on your web world and start engaging in the real world. Get out more. Join a club. Take up a hobby. Buy a girl a cup of coffee.

Try doing things that put you in situations where you can meet a gal.

I’m just say’n
