    Feeling Alone In The World

    No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to relate to people. My interests are very narrow, I guess. I like to think about and discuss things that more often than not, people seem to think is stupid, or a waste of time. A man in my family, not liking auto-mechanism and sports...

    Alone

    I feel like I just can't relate to people. I'm a misfit in every sense of the word. I don't date, I don't do drugs, I'm not religious, and my hair's bright purple. People just don't understand me. I feel pretty self aware for my age, yet I don't like talking about things that...

    I Dislike Most People

    Normally, I find that I am pretty socially awkward. I've always been shy and I am pretty hard of hearing. These two things do not go well together, believe me. I have a threshold when it comes to talking to people and I am totally transparent. I like to get out once in a blue...

    Difficulty Making Friends

    I am not a bad person and can easily strike up a conversation with the odd stranger, oddly enough I have a hard time making friends especially female ones.
