take solace in the fact that you are not QUITE alone. you have plenty of friends here on GF. but if that is not enough, make some friends at school, or work if your older. but about not going anywhere in life, just pick something. anything. say, put 5 things that interest you in a hat and draw one. then, obsess or something over it and make a career out of that.

Just 'cause popular people say it's wrong to know people on the internet, doesn't make it so. You just need a balance, is all. Don't live on here, secluding yourself from reality. Might be more comfortable, but it won't do you any good. Likewise, don't feel that you're a loser because you use GF. There are people here with wives, expensive cars etc. Only real reason you feel so bad is because you let yourself feel bad. Like Wiener says, figure out why, and stop it.

ok, so you think of yourself as a loner that has a life that's going nowhere? About 6 months ago, I was pretty much the same. You just gotta work on the loner thing first. Call friends. Go places with them, get out of the house more, etc. You'll find that if you get involved with everything as much as posible, you also give yourself direction as well as killing that 'i'm a loner' thing... two birds with one stone. WEll, it worked for me anyway...

NiteStrykerI like computers more than people....[/QUOTE] :dropsjaw: *siren* *buzz* Sorry, wrong answer! That's the sort of advice that's harmful!! A computer can never bring as much fun as a real friend! Sure, I like my computer a lot, but I still put my friends above it.

ok, that might work for you, but I think evildude would be better off with some friends. He's depressed because he thinks he's a loner....the sooner he gets on to losing that attitude, the better. From what you post, you like being a loner. From what evildude posts, I gather that he doesn't like being one. Of course, this is all my own opinion, and I know you're entitled to yours, I just don't think that sort of advice helps....

you're right i should have rephrased what i meant... i guess it's a matter of perspective, being a loner... the glass half empty / half full idea... try to see the positive sides, i would say; being alone doesnt have to be a horrible experience; it gives you time to truly focus on yourself and your strenghts, without the distraction of other people and their drama.... go out and do things by yourself, that you would do with a friend, and you'll see your best friend had always been there, you just weren't truly aware of it... (it took me a long time of having no family or real friends to see that...) when i feel truly alone, i write.... it's a good outlet for such melancholy times, IMO... okay, enough with the counseling.. from here on out, i'll have to charge a fee
