    My circle of online and real life friends is getting stale. Unfortunately the only thing I seem to find here is pervs and people who think I'm their therapist.

    I can't help but feel alone. I'm kind of shy and I can't really seem to meet anyone. I guess I'm just looking for someone to talk to. I don't really know.

    I hate meeting new people. I feel so awkward and shy... I try to act calm and collected, but I seem to not do that so well. I wish I could hide under a rock sometimes.
