    Haha I'm prob the Least popular person.

    It's strange tho, people think I'm chill and cool and they talk to me, but I always have to text first and have they ever invited me anywhere? Nope. I'm just glad I have a small group of cool friends. That and I guess I'm not very likeable lol :)

    It Used to Make Me Quite Sad...

    but now i really dont care...i wont force people to like me. i wont change anything about myself or dumb myself down. if they dont like me or dont "get" me then that is their loss.

    Background Character

    Of course it won't happen every time however most of the time... it does. Almost anytime I'm in a group of people, I'll be the last person someone wants to talk to. I'm like that background character that just few people are interested to. Ironically, I always have so much to...

    I'm So Sick!

    I honestly try my hardest not to offend. I'm very thoughtful, but when I don't get the same courtesy shown to me it throws me off. I don't understand the morals of some people. They can dish it out, but can't take it????

    I live in New Jersey, and I'm just out of step over here. I'm a quiet, somewhat nerdy guy with unusual interests who generally keeps his opinions to himself in a state where outspoken loudmouths dominate. Even if I'm able to engage and/or hit it off with others (which is not easy...

    I don't have a gray self image.

    Those that know me regardless of whether or not they like me generally respect me. I know a lot of girls at my school like me(I'm not bring cocky) but I generally can't for the life of me see why.
