    I Came Here For Validation

    I need to know I'm not the only one who feels this way. More than often I enjoy my own company more than the company of others. I'm called antisocial, but I know this isn't the case because I like people and I like socializing. I just like being in my own head so much more...

    So, a guy friend I've known

    for two months told me he liked me. But the thing is, nothing can work because we live in different states. I told him I didn't like him that way but the truth is I do and I didn't tell him because I didn't want to lose face. He thinks everything logically and said that because...

    I hate feeling so alone.

    I want someone to share my thoughts and feelings with. Someone to laugh with. I feel so isolated right now, trapped in my own mind. I need something more.

    So I have these friends,

    might say my only friends, who smokes weed. And they know I don't want to inhale any of the smoke (I have a good reason for this), so they "respect" my wishes and now they don't invite me at all. And before this we usually didn't do much when we were together, only go to the...

    I don't know why it gets me every time.

    I should know by now that no matter what, I only have myself to rely on when I need someone.

    I feel extremely alienated.

    I don't know how to go on. I feel abandoned. I just looked up both the definition for abandonment and alienation. I haven't felt normal in such a long time. I haven't felt good in such a long time. :(. I haven't got any real friends. I just want love, I need love, I want to...

    I feel like I'm at yet another crossroads in life. I am not very happy here, at least with my current position. I hate how I feel that everything comes down to money - but that is how I feel. I have grown to despise it. I don't even want fancy things anymore, like Bentley's...

    I've been feeling very alone lately,

    I hope that putting my feelings out there will help in some way. I don't really have anyone to share my feelings with, I don't want people I know to know just how alone I feel. After the death of my son, it's almost at the 5 year mark, I shut myself off emotionally and pushed...

    My name is Andrea. I'm 18 years old.

    I'm a freshmen in college. Lately I've been pretty lonely. I feel like I don't have anybody to talk to, which really sucks. I hardly get a text from anybody. Nobody really talks to me anymore. I feel like I don't have any friends. It makes me sad but yeah I feel alone.

    I've got good friends

    but no matter what I still feel alone. I don't know why, but I feel like I'm waiting for that one person to come along and make my life complete again. Not necessarily in a true love, soul mate way. Could be in a best friend way. You never know. Need someone to make me smile.

    It's amazing how I can really understand

    when people have melt downs. They can feel like their whole world is ended, and I will be there letting them vent, letting them cry or just say what they want. yes, there are bigger problems in the world, but for them it is their biggest so why not let them feel how they want to...

    Im insanly agoraphobic (scared of people;

    social anxiety) and slow to warm up to new people in person. So consequently i only have 3 good girlfriends who i can really talk to about stuff. But theyre always busy so i spend a lot of time alone with my cat. Gets a bit lonely but Mittens is a good listener :)

    Much of my loneliness is a result of my
