    Just Ended Up Being A Lonely Person

    I have been lonely for quite a while. I have always been a quiet, shy person who kept to himself and was antisocial. During highschool all of my friends ended up bullying me and putting me down, which destroyed my self esteem. I think I started to keep to myself more because I...

    I Were!!!

    This doesn't apply to me much anymore. It's hard to be lonely with so many people to chat with on here now. =p But yes... 99% of my depression in the past was due to isolation and loneliness. It was due to my social anxiety, or the end result of it. I didn't have any friends...

    I am quite depressed at the moment,

    all I think about day and night is finding a significant other. It sounds a bit cheesy I know, but I can't get the thought out of my head. I see it as the only way to find happiness in life. I just hope one day I can find that person to love and care for, to hold one another...

    Well most of the time I do feel lonely.

    Despite the fact that I have a handful of people that I consider friends. Whenever I feel lonely I soon drop into depression. It really sucks.

    I feel trapped, I am afraid to express true

    feeling to the small circle of friends I have. I am extremely self concious, and feel like I am a little piece to others life. I downloaded this app in the hope of meeting someone I can develop a true friendship with, and without the constant fear of being judged.

    My problem is I don't know how to socialize

    and I'm too awkward to learn how to be and now I'm having this self conflict of caring or being aloof, empathy or psychopathy and it's ripping my mind limb from limb.

    It sucks when you're ignored by the person

    whose attention is the only thing you want in the world. Ever since this girl first walked into our school, I couldn’t take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn’t the only guy staring at her either. Through my mind, I was thinking, "you know what, I'm gonna try to...
