    It Just Didn't Seem The Easiest Thing.

    In my teenage years I always had good friends but I was very much a stay at home girl, I wouldn't be out every weekend. I spent a lot of time in my room, and I was fairly content although I would get bored or lonely sometimes. It wasn't that I was antisocial, it just seemed that...

    Lonely And Miserable

    Nowadays I find myself more lonely and miserable. It makes me think about getting out of my shy shell and making friends because company makes a person much happier. I think that is why I push for a family too, because when you have a family you're never lonely right?

    What Social Life?

    "I'm a loner, Dottie...a rebel." I've never really had much of a social life.  I've always had just a handful of friends, but each of them were close.  I used to go to the clubs all the time when I was younger and party, making many acquaintances that I would...

    I'm no social butterfly. I still go out and hang out with other people, but not often. I intimidate people with how antisocial I am. "Asocial" a friend called me once since I'm not against the socializing, I just don't do it. I want to. It's more fun being around other people. I...
