Dear P,
As our pals say, not all of us as people persons, some of us are comfortable with our own company and don't feel any great need to have other people around. If you are unable to make friends and really want to, see a psychologist who can assess the situation, and help you become comfortable with forming friendships. If you could, but don't particularly want to, that's up to you. But when there are problems in life, you may appreciate having soem friends to turn to for advice and support.
