Best advice I can give you (like you've already identified) is to keep yourself busy. Look after your health - if you're eating loads of .... then that affects your mood. Work out and stick to it - you honestly feel so much better for doing so.
I eat somewhat healthy (at least compared so some people I know) but making food for one person is hard when you have almost no culinary interest at all.
I'm not very interested in fitness either. I ride my bike to the store once every few days, and sometimes I just take a ride for the sake of it. Other than that, it is very hard for me to keep a routine with something I'm not interested in or fascinated by.
Lastly, try and get involved with as many social events as you can. Whether its hanging out with friends, going to partys, going out to social events with your colleagues if you work. Any chance you get to meet new people is great. You might think "But I hate meeting new people" or "Im really shy/timid around groups of people I dont know" but if you do then a) you have to start somewhere b) you be passing up an opportunity to meet a girl that you wouldnt usually meet.
Yes, I do some of those things. Although I'm a little socially awkward, I wouldn't say that I'm hopeless. However, it is extremely difficult for me to try to get into a group of people larger than 3-4, especially if they already know each other. I just sit and wait until it is over because to be honest, I don't feel like saying much unless they're talking about something within my somewhat narrow interests. In smaller groups, it's a little easier though.
Maybe I just confirmed the things you said now haha. Thank you for the advice despite my hopelessness.
