    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...

    I have never had more

    than three friends at once. I live in a small town and no-one my age shares the hobbies that I have. They all prefer drinking alcohol, going to parties and listening to pop music. When I went to university I found out that two of my three friends were going to the same city but...

    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 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...

    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...

    None

    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...

    Never Really..

    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.

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

    I don't have much of a social life because I am in constant pain. Anyone who suffers with a chronic painful condition also knows what I am talking about.You can not simply go where you want, when you want. When you have an appointment that must be kept, it is worse than you can...

    They are trite, stupid ( who decided we were really intelligent anyway?), petty, locked up for life with no chance for parole ( Emotionally and mentally), boring, annoying, and well, stupid. It's a good thing I'm so smart and charming, and don't share any of those characteristics...

    Broken Envious Shy Guy

    I'm a shy guy who has no clue how to change, and would be too frightened to try even if social interaction did make sense to me. I have no social skills, having been sheltered by relatives that I lived with for my entire childhood. I was homeschooled (I do online coursework now...

    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

    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...

    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 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...
