I Feel Alone In a Crowded Room

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 504 People

    Hi, My Name Is Unimportant, And Unnoticed.

    I have no close friends. I seem to mainly have acquaintances. I pretty well always get blown off by "friends" when someone better wants to hang with them. I can't stand letting people too close to me because I know they'll leave anyway. I've only let one girl really close to me...

    The Worst Feeling Ever

    This is the worst feeling, at least, for me. It's just sad, sick, stupid. Whenever I feel this way, I just feel so helpless...like, I wanna get out of there. It's not good at all.

    Lost In A Mess

    I feel that no one understands me and I am alone in my pain. Do you have any idea what it's like to be trapped so far into yourself. you're unable to express what you're thinking let alone who you are?

    Are You There Guys?...it's Me, The Birthday Girl.

    I feel empty when I'm with my friends. We went out for my birthday dinner tonight and I felt as if it wouldn't have mattered if I was there or not. I didn't feel included most of the time. There were only 4 of us including me, but majority of the conversations were about them...

    All My Life

    The other day I went to a gathering and I felt so out of place. I'm starting to realize that I've felt that way my entire life (just completely out of place). I think it all started as a child. I was always teased for being too dark or being feminine (I'm a male). I never even...

    The Group Name Says It All

    Ever stand in a crowded room, people happy, smiling, talking to each other, and wondered "How come nobody wants to talk to me?" Why is it, that the whole world seems to look away, when all I want is a friend to talk to? Sometimes, even laying in my wife's arms, I feel...

    I Have No Joy In My Life

    I am old, nearly 70. I have never learned to socialize and find it extremely awkward to make conversation. I would be better living as a recluse or even dead. I grew up in a family where there was no affection, no loving words or caressing. And so I never learned what love...
