I Feel So Alone!I know what having friends is like- it can be awesome! I had a great group of friends in high school. I went away to school, they did not. We lost touch, in fact, they ended up not liking me which hurt me deeply. I tried to rekindle our friendship but after awhile I could see I would forever be an outsider. My college friends, I had one or two, they are long gone. I moved away and lost contact with them. When I came back, it was like I never existed. Then, even though I had new jobs and went to grad school, I was unable to connect with anyone. I felt like a pariah.
I have been at the same job for 3 years and I only have 'work' friends, no one that I am close with or could chat with about important things. I am married...I recall at my wedding, I had very few friends and in fact, people (family) ignored me at my own wedding!!!
When I was single, and the internet was still brimming with possibilities, I would make friends with people on myspace or okcupid. or even livejournal. Now that I am married, I think my husband would find that weird...
I'd love to find at least internet buddies on the experience project.
