This may be my favourite yet. I keep saying that. But here you are laying out something that 98% of this population does. They keep putting themselves out there, again and again, looking for that special something. Or just to connect to another individual through friendship.

It isn't you-and don't you try to claim this as your own! It is human nature. You have just found a truly amazing way of putting it out there. I would hate to see this about me. Then again, I rarely leave my cave! (I'm one of the other 2%). OK, maybe not exactly of the 2% but I'm close. It's the troll in me!

Smiles, thank you Aurora. That is what it was more about, than, like ,popularity. It was about that desperation to make a friend or a confidante.

I find it perfectly fine to do this, the way society is raised today. I never really cared about popularity or stuff like that, if you hate me or whatever fine. I wasn't trying to impress you. I can't really relate to this so I can't give any advice, sorry. :iconsorryplz: But I can wish you luck!

This isn't about popularity... and .. I dont know, I find that a bit upsetting. To me this isn't about being omgz popular, its saying that I am so desperate to be heard, and accepted, that I'm tearing chunks of myself out and exposing it to people. That it's getting out of hand. That its not working out for me. That I'm hopeless.

:hug: In the past, interaction with others was a struggle. I was indirectly bullied most of my childhood, but I have found that when I put my mind to it - I make friends very easily and keep them for a long time.

Don't give up, and keep your chin up. :hug:

It's hard to find worth in yourself sometimes like ~Zevais said. I've been struggling with it a lot lately, thinking I'm not good enough and being irrationally jealous over stupid things. Stuff like that. When I think about how desperate I am for attention from certain people sometimes, it's almost enough to make myself sick.
But yeah I know how it feels. :hug:

I know the difficulty in finding worth in yourself. I succomb to my demons as soon as my fiance is away too long. I think I've even given up trying to make new close friends because it just doesn't seem to be happening. It bothers me too that I find myself online for interaction too often as well; I disgust myself sometimes.

At least, I bet a number of us would be willing to hang out with you if it were possible. If I ever visited Britain again, I'd buy you a drink.

I don't feel that I am worth it all; my fiance would argue with me for hours saying that I am not, but I know that I am at this point with the opportunities I threw away and shell I have become from fighting myself. When it comes to the real world, I kind of stopped caring what people think of me. As long as stay a decent human being from my point of view, I just say and do what I want at this point. Also at this point, I always make plans that would end up fine if nobody showed up besides my fiance and I. It doesn't help that only few people even remotely interested in hanging out with me are female... I am not going to go hang out with females during lonely times when I am engaged.

I think you might be able to get more for the innards if you found the right buyer?

Maybe. I think that it'll take a while for me to be able to think so hopefully again.

Indeed, but at this moment(most moments lately) I can relate. Things seem to finally get to where they don't seem so bad. Only to have reality slap and laugh in your face.....
Sorry umm I liked it and it my be my morbid sense of humor but I giggled through some especially the personalized card. I found a pic some where on the Internet " for sale one abused heart for sale" and had just put it up on my FB lol

Like me sometimes I think. I pour so much of myself into my writing and then share it with the public. Sometimes I wonder whether I'm sharing how I feel or feeling so I can share.

At least you're not to the point where you're sharing so that you can feel. ;)

I think isolation is becoming increasingly common in our modern society. People are finding it more comfortable to connect with others from behind the screen of a computer or iphone, etc. But it's a poor substitute for face-to-face interaction. The problem is compounded if one is a writer, as most writing is usually done in solitude, as well.
