    Even My (Former) Best Friend Didn't Remember Me

    Normally, I don't think of myself as forgettable or boring. I think I'm a pretty interesting person. I'm an aspiring novelist, I love foreign languages and men. I think I'm pretty smart too. However, none of this seems to interest anyone. I am still shy and keep to myself, but I...

    People Never Remember Me

    I go out and meet people, find things that we have in common and can have a great conversation with them.  Then, the next time I see them it's as if we've never met. I'll greet them by name and tell them how nice it is to see them again only go receive a blank stare in...

    I really love to talk to people,

    but I sometimes feel that I'm losing a competition among my friends to see who is the most interesting. One of my really good friends is going out with a girl that I've been talking to longer than he has because she finds him more "interesting." I can be witty and fun, you just...

    I am afraid of the dark. I am 23. It makes sense from an evolutionary stand point. It's not about being childish it's about not being able to perceive stimuli in darkness.
