Fairly Often

I have a great family, and friends, so I'm not gonna pretend I have it as bad as some of you might. I can't afford a car and don't have a license, and I also live with my mother helping her watch my brother who's autistic. So as you'd imagine, I don't get to see many people even when the opportunity is there. Most of my friends are long-distance, and most of my relationships have been the same. There is a girl I like around here, and she seems to at least enjoy me, but I'm so used to the long-distance thing, I don't know how to go about it with someone I actually see. Point is, I can't see most of the friends I do have, and I'm far too shy and afraid of looking or sounding stupid to make many friends that are closer to me. Not to mention, I always feel at least a little empty when I don't have a significant other, I guess that kind of relationship just makes me feel like I'm worth more, not just to myself, but to others. I realize this is fairly tame compared to other peoples' problems, but it did feel kind of good throwing it out there.
