    It's sad that this is the case

    but I'm alone most of the time. I'm hoping to make friends but till I do I just continue as I do now. I'm over being lied to and being the fall back plan. I've removed the ppl who have walked all over me from my life so that's pretty much everyone. I'm ok with being physically...

    I'm A Loner Sometimes

    Sometimes I am all lonely because I have no friends and a bf really. I am quiet, shy, and always into myself in my room because that just the way I am. I sometimes will talk to my immediate family but in the outside world not so much . I get very nervous around people because I'm...

    Hey guys. I know I haven't been on this website

    for at least like a year it seems. Or at least I haven't logged on and posted anything. Anyways, so lately I've been kind of struggling at college, not so much grade-wise but I guess like social wise and stuff. I don't seem to fit in, not that I ever really have fit in anywhere...

    The more time I spend by myself,

    the lonelier I get. The lonelier I get, the more reserved and closed-off I get. Do you see the problem here?

    Time Not So Well Spent.

    College is so lonely. Its more lonely than high school. Far more lonely. I still have friends that go to my school but it doesn't make much of a difference because I never see them anyway. I always go eat inbetween classes at the student union by myself. After I eat I usually go...

    Very Good Read I Found On The Internet

    I would be far less of a loner if the conversations in my head weren’t far more entertaining than the conversations I have with other people.” That was my rebuttal in high school to a well-meaning teacher who shared her concern with me about my solitary nature. I often found...

    By Choice.....

    Most of the people who "knew me" in school would be surprised to learn that I really don't like most people that much.  I was Miss Class in one school and a cheerleader twice.  Both things pointed to my loving a crowd. Nothing could be further from the...

    Because I Can

    Here I sit in a darkened room with a light that does not insult my eyes. Looking at my one eyed friend who only stares back expressionless. Listening to some tunes I have not had access to for some time, They keep singing about love that once was and they miss it to such a degree...

    I'm usually lone by myself.

    At least, I try to, but some of my school mates like to hang and chat with me. My friends think I'm a boring triangle and need to become an irregular shape like a scalene, which is basically a type of triangle...but that's just the way I am...a loner...like Nico Di Angelo (Percy...

    Alone And Pround Of It.

    It's pretty hard to realize the fact that you have literally no friends. It's not fun when your parents say " were going away so you can invite anyone you want " and i think to myself " ....Like what ? ". I don't like to complain or think about it cause i do have people in my...

    It's not that I chose to be like this

    but I hate big crowds of people and I usually just be by myself. I really don't mind I'm kinda used to it, but I still interact with most people as well.

    Tiptoe Through the Crowd

    I have always kept to myself. I am usuallly careful what I say to someone, because I have found that people have not liked to hear how I really feel. Many people I've met talk about nonesense, are socially conventional, and I am bored by their conversation. When I was younger...

    I'm not trying to be cool, or mysterious, or stand out from the crowd. I just don't like people in general.

    The Joys Of Soitude

    As a child and teenager I absolutely hated being a loner. I mean, sure I was the one who had friends in every click. Hung out when I wanted to and then after a couple of hours, quickly escape unnoticed to some quiet place in order to read or doodle. In my late teens into my early...

    I just don't seem to get along with people my

    age. I normally blame my shyness but I mostly just use it as an excuse it feels like. What's so annoying is I want to talk to people I just can't. I'm just use to not talking to people cause I'm awkward and shy. Guess I'll always be kind of a loner.
