Alone Among Friends

At first glance, you'd think I have lots of friends. Plenty of people wave to me around campus, but none of them really know me or want to see me. It started a few weeks into the school year, when I realized that I wasn't making the close friendships that everyone else seemed to be making at college, and it's just gotten worse and worse. These days, I'm certain that if I simply left the campus and walked straight off the face of the Earth no one would notice. It hurts. I know that they aren't doing it on purpose, but on this campus of 13,000 students, I swear I've never been lonelier. I want to disappear, but I already have.

you wrote exactly what i feel about myself. ..it really hurts when i see people having chat together and having fun, and i sit alone in a corner waiting for someone to notice me...is it me? i know i'm introvert but i'm really friendly and helpful...then why i don't have friends?
