If you feel like you have no friends, don't blame it on your personality.

The reason why others aren't inviting you out has nothing to do with how much fun you are or how much they enjoy spending time with you.

It has to do with more subtle things, like the way you behave over social media and through texting.2

Here are a few ways that you're accidentally shutting others out without even realizing it:

1. You Don't Respond to Texts Quickly Enough

You Don't Respond to Texts Quickly Enough

If your friends text you to hang out, and you don't respond to them for six hours, they probably won't want to hang out anymore.

People like promptness.

If they know that they're not going to get an answer out of you, then they won't even bother to invite you out in the future.

So try to work on your text etiquette.

2. You Ignore Group Chats

Group chats can be annoying.

However, you don't want to be the only one who reads everything without replying.

If you keep quiet, then everyone is going to assume that you don't want to be involved with the group.

It's a silly way to lose friends, but it happens.

3. You Have Negative Body Language

When you're out with your friends, make it clear that you're having fun.

If you have your arms crossed and eyes on your phone, then they'll assume that you'd rather be somewhere else and nobody likes a party pooper.

That's why it's important for you to listen to what everyone's saying--and even more importantly, to laugh and smile!

4. You Never Invite Your Friends over to Hang out

Your friends aren't going to be happy with you if you never bother to make plans.2

That's why you can't wait for them to ask you to hang out.

You need to initiate hangout sessions every once in a while.

That way, they'll know that you actually like them enough to seek out their company.
