    I keep looking my social network.

    Again and again. Yesterday I realized that I need. I need to be loved.

    Expressing my feelings on the internet under an

    anonymous identity is so much easier for me than talking about them in real life ??

    It's a very important aspect of people's lives.

    .. so I don't think I am living anymore. I have to either end this life or see a miracle for this problem to be solved...

    I Want To Be A Real Girl

    I feel like I am not a real person. I have two kids and no job, I live far away from my hometown and really don't know anyone in my city. It's kinda complicated; I stay here because this is where my kids' fathers live.  Everyone tells me I'm crazy and to just take my kids and go...

    Social gatherings are always awkward

    and uncomfortable for me. I'm the guy who' is always standing off by himself and trying to figure out how to fit in or what to say. It's easier for me to just stay home in the first place. I'm usually very content to be alone.

    I don't drink alcohol,

    so this cuts me out from a lot of social activities. I'd actually love it if people asked me to go out with them more often, everyone just assumes that I'm boring because I don't drink. In view of the above, I really like staying at home and being lazy in my pyjamas. I guess...

    No friends means more Netflix.

    That's how I see it. I guess I have my dog but he doesn't keep much of a conversation going.

    When you are homebound like I am it is very

    difficult to have a social life. Everyone is afraid something in the environment might set off some kind of reaction. In my case, an epileptic seizure. I have tried to find people who can help me, but all I hear is excuses. The most popular one is "I do not know your condition...

    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...

    With my job I am social.

    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 only have one close friend at hs

    and I will move to another school in few months and that makes me terrified of leaving even though none apart from her likes me in my current school.

    Whenever I decide to befriend someone,

    I am drawn back by a feeling of uselessness and fear of being rejected. I don't see any likeable trait or good things in me.

    "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...

    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...

    I work, come home, sleep,

    get up shower, eat and back to work. On the weekends I usually sit at home by myself because I have no one in my life . I would like someone in my life, but everytime I get close they always walk away so I live my life of solitude.

    I have no friends by choice.

    In 8th grade I decided I'd rather sit alone at lunch than sit with the 'weird' kids. The boys and girls that were friends because they didn't want to sit alone. The rejects, the misfits, the leftovers. Back then, I was a complete weirdo, I still am. The only difference is, now...

    I have this gut to not trust anyone quickly

    and seriously because i know they'll just leave after. I don't like chatting with people cos i think i won't have anything interesting to say to them. And i prefer music alone than being with a circle of people.

    It's a shame and is one of the reasons I

    contemplate suicide. Constantly, I am bombarded with images and videos of social events that make me jealous, they are all having fun, drinking yet I don't drink, don't have the friends, or the environment to do fun things. All of my friends I once knew have separated from me...

    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...

    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 used to have a lot of friends

    and be very social until I met my ex. All my friends didn't like her as she created too much unnecessary drama and told me to leave her as she wasn't good for me. They gave me an ultimatum it was either them or her and I chose her being the fool I was at the time and forgot the...

    I'm not social person at all.

    I feel sometimes restless when I'm on the bus around a lot of people / groups talk making noise. When I'm with friends at school I just stay quiet not talking much. I'm the quiet person. Rare to find someone fit my personality... But its okay. Having my girl in my life it's all...

    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...
