I Feel Lonely


Well, I'm obviously here because I think of myself as a loner. However, I do have a lot of friends. And family. And classmates. It's just too much.

I already said in my blog I am a walking contradicton-oh, how I love thats phrase.

I mean, I am not alone. Definitely. And I have everything you could ask for. Still, there are times in which I feel...lonely. Strangely lonely. I feel- I will insert cliché- like no one understands me. My parents are way too smart and perfect, my friends are way too silly and they have to grow up. (as much as I love them) And well, I don't have a boyfriend. (insert pathetic whinning)

So, as I can't talk with anyone about what truly matters to me... I feel lonely. And that feeling of loneliness has increased so much that I decided to surf the net and see if I could find someone who felt like me.

So, have you ever felt like me?

I'm sure you do, or you wouldn't be here.

You need friends whom you can talk and share your feelings....

What matters to you which you think others don't care about?

Yay!<br />
Thanks for the comments...<br />

I feel better now

I dont think that not having a boyfriend should make you feel lonely.<br />
I have a boyfriend (of one year now) and i feel more alone than ever. I just miss my friends and being able to do the things that I use to be able to do without someone breathing down my neck. He's always out with his friends doing his thing, and expects for everything to be OK with me sitting at home. Alone. This site has helped me alot with putting out my loneliness.<br />
<br />
Hopefully it can help you too.<br />

But i completely know what your going through and how your feeling, when i was in highschool i was literally liked by no one, i had a group of 4 friends and that was it.. me and my parents fought ALL the time because of what i was doing and i felt completely isolated to my room, it sucked terrible. <br />
<br />
but if you ever need anyone to talk to i'm here to listen.<br />

There is also a saying which says there is a way which seems right to a man yet the ways there of are death.<br />
Also Many are called; Few answer?<br />
We must choose whether we will go the road less traveled (the other beat) or the beat of wide road.

Oh yes. Many times. And that is why I stumbled into this site & stayed. AND...it helped me feel better! Stick around. I tell you, I am over 50 & I have always felt different & alone for that, but, when I was about 14, a friend gave me a plaque that I still have. a quote from Henry David Thoreou I now give to you...<br />
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."<br />
Chin up!

I can relate.<br />
When I was in school I was alone.They cared for empty frivolities of which I saw little benefit. We had different ideals.<br />
Loneliness has gone with acceptance they will see one way and I another.<br />
So what does matter to you?
