In making new friends, they seem to like to take advantage of my honest nature and tease me. I have a good sense of humor, but I don't like being thought of as gullible. They will tell stories I think are true, only to find out it is a joke everyone else is in on.
I'm sure they mean well, and it's not done to hurt me, but it does. In meeting up with a new group, how else can I get to know them but by asking questions? Their teasing answers confuse me and I feel ridiculous. It makes me want to just stay home.
I keep trying to find a group I can feel comfortable with. It didn't used to be this difficult when I was younger.
