Hi, I am new to this site. I am sorry if this is not the correct forum to post. I have so many problems (or uncomfortable situations) in my day-to-day life, I thought I'll start with this here and get some solace. I am working abroad, my project is almost about to end. I am not a gregarious person, rather timid but when I make a friend or two, I remain loyal (maintain good friendship). I usually greet people but I don't know why I am unable to strike a chord & make friendship. All I get are nods, stares or none! I am all alone in my office, nobody speaks to me unless it is work-related. I go to office alone, eat lunch by myself and sit at my desk all day and go home. There is no sense of happiness or well-being. I feel so lost. Sometimes, on the road I see few Indians but they don't even give me a look. Once, I introduced myself (in spite of being ignored) but the couple spoke to me only that time and I pass through their route almost every week, they don't even acknowledge my presence. I don't want to keep on nagging my husband about my loneliness. We have good time when we are together but it is not enough, I think a friend is also necessary. Because of all these, I can't concentrate on my work. My quality of work is getting lower. Today, I thought I'll almost be fired because of my incomplete work. My boss is not yet complaining but I can see that his reactions to my emails or work is not very positive. Please help, I don't want to lose my job or go with a bad reference.
