    I Need A Friend.

    Always Alone

    i'm never interested in anyone. and when i am, it's so rare and so shocking and suddenly profound. and of course they are just "not that into me." and losing weight, and getting happier and more confident and obtaining more goals in life just do not seem to make it any...

    There was a cyclist killed in my neighborhood

    on Friday. The community responded with a "meeting/memorial ride." I attended because I was deeply moved (I saw the body in the street, I am a cyclist and a motorist) by this man's death. I know that people respond/process things like this in their own way. I know that tragedy...

    Drugs and Booze Cannot Replace the Affections of One For Whom You Deeply Care.

    I don't have much to say at the moment, but I figured I would state "something"... So.......... I'm a just a human male living on the fringe(s) of society. I'm typically a very nice and empathetic guy. No real judgments here... So if you happen to have something on...

    Dissapointment.

    I am very lonely in this world. People come and leave me then all alone with fading memories and a bitter taste of pain and dissapointment. I just get used to people very much. They leave and go ahead. I can just follow them with my eyes. I can just resign to my straits and sit...

    I'm always alone and have no one to talk to.

    No friends or family. Anxiety keeps me locked inside and I'm starting to get depressed.

    I am very lonely right now.

    I just sat on my right hand until it went numb and then held it with my left hand so it felt like I was holding hands with someone. I wish I'm holding hands with someone. but I'm not. I'm lonely.

    I'm losing track of what is real in my life and what's in my head. Am i really alone and unloved or is it all in my imagination. I feel like I'm slipping away into madness and I'm desperately reaching out for somebody to pull me back to reality. But does anyone notice? Does...
