    Hi! I do sometimes struggle with maintaining relationships due to not being able to follow long stories and also being forgetful of important details.

    I think for most of my life I have due to anxiety and feelings that no one likes me and having low self esteem idk if this is because of ADHD though :/

    I make friends really easy, but I rarely become emotionally attached and stop talking to them- I also tend to get in my own head about things like talking to people, and convince myself that if they really like me they’ll talk to me first

    I am the same way but I don’t know if its due to ADHD or not. I am sorry you are feeling this too :(

    I’m not a very outgoing person. It’s not that I have bad social skills. I simply like to be alone lot of the times. Some people need constant affection, attention or validation. Sometimes people are fake and I despise fake people. I don’t really like constant affection, if I find people who are too clingy that only makes me more distant. I know it’s messed up I don’t like being around anxious people, it only makes me more anxious myself or it upsets me. These are reasons why I have broken up friendships.

    @ninothesloth i experience the same stuff and it sucks that you have to deal with it, but it’s really nice to know someone relates

    Yeah that stuff happened when I was younger. I’m very reserved now. That’s not related to my adhd. That’s just my personality, my adhd makes me more talkative though. My mom is similar she has very few close friends and she doesn’t have ADHD. My mom and I rarely hug, we both don’t like hugs, but we have a close relationship. I think it’s good trait to have and it’s better to keep your distance from drama.
