    It's really true... I can't

    even really start conversations. Pretty much all people that I know, both in real life and online have either talked to me first, or had to be introduced to me by someone else. So if you want to talk to me, you'll probably have to message me first. I'm sorry. But I'll try my...

    I struggle not to be jealous of people who easily speak up and get people attention. And I am living with one, actually. I just had a dinner with some friends at my place (I invited them) and I had to invite my housemate for dinner too just so I do not seem to try to exclude her...

    In my youth I could play the crowd and still it is a talent.  The crowd is different from the individuals.  It is not the sum of them.  It's another entity and it has a life of its own, independent from the lives of its members. Crowds can pretty easily be...

    I've had this startling realization.

    I don't have a lot of friends in real life. I don't have a lot of friends online. My only conclusion is that I'm terrible at socializing. I know it seems like a pointless thing to wish, but I would love to have many friends. Not overwhelming amounts of them, but maybe like 8...

    At Mr B's parents. I want to be elsewhere.
