    I have no social life seriously.

    Nearly all the people I used to hang with are

    drug users and heavy drinkers. I stopped doing drugs and I drink very little so I don't spend time with them anymore as it's too difficult when I do. In addition to tall that, I now spend three hours everyday training and working out so I have very little time for socialising. I...

    I spend the majority of my time with my two dogs

    or visiting my parents house. I work 12 hour shifts so work, sleep and living in a rural area farther away from the majority of the population has me staying sheltered.

    Imagine living in a world

    where mobile and internet communication was never conceived and never will in the future. This would mean that people would not spend countless, mindless hours on facebook. No status updates and no commenting on how pretty that dress looks. This would also mean that our 9 to 5...

    I really believe this is

    because I am so self absorbed. I have heard that for years but never thought it was true about me. I am not vain or conceited, I just enjoy myself. I have a bad problem with putting people off when I am invited to do things. It sounds awesome at first and then I just can't. I...

    I wish I had a social life!

    I had a great social life when I was in college, but then I moved away and so did my friends. I have since lost touch with them and moved back to my hometown, but I don't have any friends left here due to people moving away and such. It's so much harder to make new friends as...

    "Hey, how was your weekend?

    " For some of us these kind of questions are draining. Why? Because not everyone has people who care for them to spend time with. Plus the fact that you are supposed to be outgoing and always have fascinating new things to tell otherwise you are not normal. We people all go...

    (I think I said it before) I'm not into

    partying. I don't go out with the very few friends that I have and go with them to Buffalo Wild Wings, or go bowling. I'm kind of shy, not really into socializing with people I don't know. My Friday nights and Saturday nights are simple. Get some food and watch movies. I'm...

    I have always been a loner.

    Now I embrace it more than ever, though I wish I had open minded girls to hang out with. I want clubbing friends I guess. I've never really had a group of girlfriends that gets together to go out. I attract men like crazy and find it easier to spend time with them. Even gay ones...

    Locked In

    I love to dance and I love music. Why am I on the social science course? Because I was forced into it. "You should have a good future. Music and dance wouldn't get you anywhere". I know that but taking the things I love away from me completely and making me concentrate on...

    So I guess this has been a long term,

    like almost my entire life experience. Ever since grade school I haven't had many friends, and the ones I did, I think they were just using me. When I moved out on my own at 15 (long story) I became extremely isolated. I rarely spoke to anyone, familiy included unless it was my...

    I've always been the shy,

    quiet girl. I'm in high school and I sit and think about how I have no real friends and no social life a lot. My 'best friend' from elementary and middle school got into drugs and all that, so we're not near as close as we were. Also, she used me a lot so I kinda wanted to break...

    Uneventful Yet Not Boring

    My life pretty much consists of waking up, getting ready for the day (usually with an outrageous look, sometimes I'll look like a dominatrix, sometimes like I'm ready for a fight, sometimes just flaming...the list goes on), and going to school. Yeah, I talk to maybe 5 people in...

    I consider friends being a major component of

    my life. I truly value friendship. I'm so sick of feeling betrayed by my so-called "friends." All my friends are either fake/flaky or they're really just acquaintances and always have been. I don't want a big group of friends. I just want a small group of loyal people and I have...

    With my dysfunctional disagreeable family I am pretty social. But when I get off work, or when I wake up on my day off, I just want someone to spend the day with. Someone to call that knows me. I have no real social life at all. It can be a good thing of coarse, there is good in...

    I Have a Meager Social Life

    And quite frankly, I like it that way.  Sometimes I think I'd be better off if I did have a more abundant social life, but ultimately, in the end, I'm glad I keep mostly to myself and don't do a lot of socializing.  I don't NEED to be around another person to entertain...

    Logging on for a simple conversation gets

    lonely. Human interaction is scarce for me. Social Anxiety has ruled my life for a long while, causing social media to be my main form of human contact. Staying inside and reading a book is more appealing to me than going out. Social gatherings, like parties, hold no interest...

    I had a bestfriend once.

    We were childhood friends. Some people change once they go off to college. I'm alone, I have a bf but I have no friends. I can't call someone when I'm having issues or just need girl talk.
