HI there,
Thank you for using Sorry to hear you are having this problem. I would first suggest looking at your body language. 55% of communication is nonverbal. Here are some tips on how to use positive body language. Also, you may want to study effective verbal communication as well. Learning how to ask others about themselves and coming across as very interested in what they are saying also helps people gravitate towards you. You can learn more about becoming an effective communicator here.

Nine times out of ten when people are having trouble relating to people it's because of body language and communication skills.

I hope this answer helps. Please let me know if you have any other question or if you need further clarification of this answer.

Take care,
