Yeah. I'm new. Here's the thing.... I'm a freshman in high school. School's been in "session" for about 1.5 months now. I still don't have a single friend. I know this is normal for freshman, but all the other freshman have friends. I see them all in their groups eating, but I'm stuck in the corner. I try to go with the groups, be friendly, try to fit in, but I guess I'm not their type. Everyone thinks of me of a gothic nazi freak. I might seem like it, but I'm not. I'm actually a pretty nice guy (atleast I think). I don't seem to fit in anywhere. Most of the people I hear talking are from the San Bernardino county schools, and I'm from the Los Angeles county school district and it's like we're two different types of animals. I'm used to being around people who are less fortunate and have grown a hatred of most rich people because let's face it, a lot of them aren't too nice. Most of the guys at my new high school are rich. I don't tend to fit in with them. Yeah, on top of no friends at school I have no friends at home. (I had friends at my Jr High but they live like 30 miles away and I can't drive) Absolutely NO friends. I do the same thing every day. I can tell my schedule for a tuesday 3 months from now, that's how bad it is. When I get home I don't see friends like normal people around my age do. I just go on the computer and program. I guess in the long run that's good, but what good is a career without someone to share your wealth? I hear the people talking in my class. About 85% of them have girlfriends. I know I'm young, but it feels likes it's been an eternity. Some people have had multiple girlfriends and I have yet to have one. I've heard from adults that their relationships as minors have helped them grow later on in life. Am I going to be socialy retarded or something because I've never experienced that phase? I can predict most of your answers. 1. You're young, give it time. 2. Go outside and try to make friends. Well, I've come up with some answers for you. 1. Yes, I'm young, but young people need some love too! 2. I'm not allowed to leave the house. I'll tell you the reason for this. I dress in a "suggestive" manor as my parents say. They think because I dress a certain way and listen to certain music that my actions will reflect that. That's a lie. Just because I listen to Landser doesn't mean I'm going to go beat up some black guy, or because I listen to Marilyn Manson doesn't mean I'm going to burn down a church. People like to call me a freak. People don't like to hang around me. That's about it I guess because I'm getting a headache.
