I Am a Virtual Recluse But Love People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 50 People

    I really don't have a life anymore!

    Both By My Upbringing, and By Location.

    I was never "the friend" and never was a social person as a youngster and now, I find that the few opportunities here are either willfully ignored or are never encountered.  I plant to get to a place where there is more diverse surroundings and...
