Should I make friends?

To put it bluntly, I'm 31 and I have NO friends. I mean I have people at work I talk. Very friendly with. We even text from time to time. But outside of work, I don't hang out without anyone. Ever since I got out of high school I've lost touch with everybody. Now the issue is I really LIKE being by myself. I don't have an issue being liked. I am a very introverted guy but I can social well when needed to. I just like doing my own thing. I do what I want, when I want, how I want. But lately I'm thinking I need to have people in my life.

How should go about making more friends?

Join a group. Pick some kind of organization or volunteer opportunity that does something you care about. Get involved. Come & go as you please but be friendly with the people there like you would be friendly with people at work. You will have people but they won't invade your alone time.
