    I honestly find it hard to connect with people.

    I am always a freak to them and wish I was very different to who I am now.

    Surrounded By People, Yet All Alone

    Feeling Lonely, Especially At Night.

    It really sucks to not be in a relationship. I have been rejected (quite a while ago), and somehow, just when i think i'm getting over it, i see her and makes me feel bad again. It's not really her fault, she's just being herself. She's really nice to me, but she probably...

    Reality Sucks.

    It sucks, doesn't it? To feel so out of place in a world with 7 billion people. You have this idea of how life is supposed to be. You're supposed to be surrounded by people who will make you tell them what's really wrong when you say, "I'm fine." You're supposed to have this...

    Thought I would have a great online

    relationship, but he barely asked how I was doing and we talked once every few months. Having a bf like that sucked. It made me question whether or not I should call him that in the first place. I wanted to give him space, but I also missed him. He couldn't just not talk to me...

    I think getting older has made me more

    introverted, at least that's my theory. Thus, it's getting harder to make friends. And even harder to open myself up to [meeting] someone who may have the potential to be a significant other. Honestly, there are more days now than ever that I don't think that I will get married...

    What makes me more depressed about being lonely

    is the fact that there are so many people on this planet why can't I find at least one person I can trust and truly call a friend? I'm a nice person why do people always leave me when they promised they would always be by my side.
