If you aren't shy, then all you have to do is talk a lot.

I do talk a lot. I have for years. Still no real friends. Even the people who I talk to have no interest in hanging out with me. High school is just a terrible place. I'm no longer bothered by it, though. I'll be out of this hellhole for good in two months.

However, one problem I have been having ever since I ended my text-based relationship is loneliness, but due to me still being in high school, my efforts in finding suitable female companionship have not been successful.

Any suggestions?

No offense intended, but talking too much is not a guarantee of friendship... Some people might be bored with never ending chatter. (Not targeting you Terry, just trying clarify that blabbing is not always a cure.)

Are you interested in other people, or are you interested in other people being interested in you?

I don't talk too much, and it's not like I spend much of that time if any talking about myself. I've seen people who never know when to end a conversation and just keep talking even when I try to walk away. It's not a fun experience.

Are you interested in other people, or are you interested in other people being interested in you?

Both.

I didn't really find any real friends until I was well out of high school. A psychology major tells me part of the reason is that male empathetic development comes later in life. I also had a remarkably delayed social development to boot.

Then again high school is a time where people are still struggling to assert their identity... it's a matter of how open people are to revealing this process.

Why`s that Sal? This thread is just as important as any other. Back me up Ace.

Wait...was that my cue?
This thread is important, because without it, I would still be single....
Technically be single. I'm married on FB, which is, as all of you know, a huge deal. I apparently missed the wedding. ;-;

Any suggestions?

Be yourself? Unless...you're not a Cool-Cat with an Obey snapback, iPhone 5, Beats, Osiris shoes, #IGotSwag Shirt, low jeans with your fancy brand boxers showing, and only one ear piercing.
That's what's considered a Kool-Kat around these parts.

Seriously....be yourself. And trust me, sometimes what you wanted all along, is not what you needed. You may say you want the ladies, but sometimes, I wish I was all lonely again.

There..now we make it in your comfort zone

We don't judge anyone, right everyone?

I like how progressive things are, that's actually really cool. I thought low jeans was derived from prison slacks to indicate that you were a bottom and available for "service", and that one ear piercing was related to the rumoured "secret gay handshake". Yeah, now these things have been appropriated it's like a form of widespread tolerance and acceptance, that's very cool indeed.

The Beats however, they need to go.

Heh, it wasn't the first time that happened between a couple...

*cough*

Anyways, the prom was last night. Unfortunately, I didn't get to ask that one girl because it was a little late to ask and planning around it would be difficult(I forget where I mentioned this last, so in case you're new to the situation, I was considering asking a girl to prom, basically). However, there were four co-operative dances during the long dance session - two slow dances and two swing dances. I think I ended up slow dancing with her twice and swinging her once. I'd say that was a successful night, if I do say so myself.

I'm not sure how much we'll see each other in a month, though. Our co-op ends at the late of the month, and in two months I graduate... Garr. I'm not really sure what to do, or if she is even interested in anything past friendship at this point. I hate to sit around, though.

No, don't do that. No, no, no, no, no. That's the worst thing you could possibly do. No, no, no, no, no. Ask her! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. But don't ask her at a bad time. No, no, no, no, no. Good luck! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

*Vanishes into the night*
