It's like that old, old observation: When you're single, all your friends are hooking up. Love is like a party that you weren't invited to. I was at this party that was mostly close friends and extended groups of friends. Almost all of them had coupled up, except me. Any girls that were single were not interested. I'm still pretty young, so I am plain old horny, but I also want a companion that will teach me how to love, or just provide a good time. Being a fifth wheel is very painful, especially when you always are. I just felt like grabbing the nearest girl and saying "is it really so objectionable to show me some affection???" It doesn't help that I've experienced so many let downs, especially recently. My best friend thru some of the toughest times in my life is pushing me away. Other friends are leaving or moving on. A promising love interest got cold feet. I can't get over an older love. I can't congradulate myself on any acheivments, I have a nagging feeling of worthlessness and inadeqacey... I know life is hard and this is a hard time in my life, but I still feel alienated. I just need a break, and I don't seem to be getting one. If anyone wants a pen pal or something, I've been known to be very good with extreamly personal matters. I offend at nothing, all subjects are fair game with me, so don't be afraid to come straight out with your darkest feelings. I will be a helping hand for you if no one else will.
