    Sometimes I get quite lonely.

    I have friends, but we all have jobs and homes and it is difficult to see them a lot. I would like some new friends to chat with. On evenings or weekends when we are both not busy.

    The Weekend Looms

    I am sitting all alone in my living room. Labor day weekend is just around the corner and I long to spend it with someone, but there is no one there. I hate that feeling of being unwanted and unloved. I know it's not true, but the feelings come all the same. I know I'm better off...

    I am odd and many people find me to be morbid at times. My alienation is not a matter of appearance really, but a matter of insight. When I talk with someone and they comment on my intelligence I tend to get distant. These people, instead of keeping up with the conversation just...

    I Get Lonely Too

    I enjoy my space, and time alone. It is something I really need sometimes. I spend a lot of time hiding how I feel, because I see so much need around me and I want to help others. When my family or friends have problems, I don't want to share how I feel because I don't want them...
