    "It's Simply Not In The Cards For Me"!

    I Have No Social Life

    I remember talking during my first few years of life (after starting to talk). Then probably during first grade I suddenly became extremely shy, and throughout the rest of my school years almost never talked, though it got a little better in my later school years.  I was...

    All my time is given to my husband and work. Right now it is just my husband. We don't go out so there is no social life here. Netflix movies and the computer is pretty much what we do. I came off the road as a Truck Driver in Feb. and staying with my daughter and son-in-law. She...

    It's Slightly Amusing, Really.

     I was talking to my mom on the phone just now, and she said I should really go out to a bar with some friends or something. I think it just about takes the cake when your mother is urging you to go get drunk. XD   ~Jennie

    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...

    Which I Guess Is Why I'm On Ep

    When you can't make friends in "the real word", turn to another "reality"! Hah, I've always been fascinated with the concept of not living in the real world. Whenever I hear that phrase I just wonder what kind of other worlds people make up and live in. I go to community college...

    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...

    Broken Envious Shy Guy

    Next to No Social Life

    About the only social life I have other than with my small family is at work, if indeed you can call that a social life. If I'm lucky I might socialise with people outside work maybe once or twice a year. Must be nice to have friends. lol

    I've never really had a social life. People don't generally like me. My way of thinking is quite outside of the box. It's too scary for some people to even grasp.
