I Feel Like I Don't Fit In

    In real life and strangers talk to me I have

    problems replying at once sometimes because I need time to think of an answer. But they seem to want it directly and I freak out. I feel like they will think I'm annoying because I'm slow. Also guys rarely talk to me, probably because I'm so quiet. I don't want to be like this...

    Whenever I go to a comicon

    or something similar, I feel like an outsider because I can't afford to cosplay. Is there anyone that can give some advice?

    I never have felt like I fit in anywhere.

    As far back as I can remember. I never fit in at school. When I was in my early twenties I never fit it because I was single and everyone my age seemed to be married, kids ect. Felt very alone.Even now as an adult social situations are excruciating. Just like tonight I went...

    I used to have a problem with this.

    People used to make me feel bad about it, but as I grew older I realized that fitting in means to be the same as everyone else. Why be the same as hundreds of others when you can be unique and different? People will still love you, either way, but usually if you change yourself...

    Nah, I've never ever really been able to "fit

    in" I tried so hard to fit in when I was younger but now I actually prefer to not fit in as I can just be myself that way :)

    I don't really get one thing (well,

    many but at the moment this one is on my mind) that if everyone is into sharing quotes and staff about how good it would be if everyone were honest and tell the truth. However in reality when they got the truth or someone is honestly showing how they feel or sharing what they...

    I feel like I don't in.

    at all. I think that I did try and fit in at some stages, but no.I have been looked at weirdly and being misunderstood. So, I sometimes "just don't care" and sometimes I wish that I could.Well, you know what? I give up. There's no use in trying anymore. I think that I'm just...

    Which is funny for a social media site,

    feeling like you don't fit in. But I've been back and forth lately a lot thinking about whether or not I should keep going on with EP. I've left the site 3 other times, this being my fourth, and I fell into the "maybe this isn't worth the effort or time I put into things" part...

    I'm the one who watches everyone talk

    and longingly look at friends who laugh with one another and enjoy their time together. I have no one to do that with, I feel like a total outcast.

    Do I Fit In?

    Today has just been total **** for me. I'm taking two classes this semester so I have one clas a day M-F. I didn't go to a single class this week. I haven't been able to sleep at all. The earliest I would fall asleep was 5:30 in the freakin' morning, then I'd sleep until 2:30-3:0...

    Especially on EP. I'm too straight laced

    for the pervs and weirdos and I'm too weird for the straight laced people.

    Like anywhere. I'll be 24 in a little less

    than a month and I hate most people my age. People at this age are either pregnant, already have kids, married, getting married, still drinking, and going to clubs/bars and into the party scene. I belong to NONE of those categories. My life is school, colouring, playing...
