I've felt lonely for most of my life. I worked as a teen model, and I thought that I was a friendly person, but I was countlessly targetted for mean behavior. Girls have spread rumors, flattened my tires, gossip about me, etc. In my hometown, there are countless parties that I never get invited to. Most weekends, I stay home....I could go days without anyone even calling my cell phone. I am an attractive young woman with many accomplishments, and I don't understand why I have been treated so badly over the years. Even in high school, guys have insulted me as well. In groups, people never ask me for my opinion, never ask how I'm doing, and talk over me in conversations. I would love to have the sort of charisma that attracts friendships easily. I am 26, and right now, this is bugging me more than ever. No one knows that I am struggling with this, because people perceive me as the "pretty model" type. I don't belong to any group of friends, and it seems like everyone else is. There are people that I even go out of my way to email to ask how they're doing, and I don't get a response! I don't get why people alienate me so much!
