I always feel like I'm making more of an effort with people than vice versa... watch

    Like asking people to meet up & starting conversations with them asking how their life us going & stuff. I like to gee up people, give them compliments, make sure they are ok & everything. However from my life experience so far it always seems I'm more enthusiastic to interact with other people than they are with me. It kinda feels sad, but I just need to keep going as I know shying away will make things worse. I don't know what else to say :erm:
    B-b-but...you have 161 followers. Doesn't that mean anything? :laugh:

    And maybe because you might look thirsty to them, so they pull away.

    I'd prefer 161 real life friends than followers who I don't even know on an online student site tbh. Possibly, but if my previous life experience is anything to go by I really do need to at least put myself out there.

    Lol this is exactly why i cut almost all my 'friends' out of my life. I realised they weren't appreciating me enough and why the hell should I be the one to put the most effort in?! Im really happy that i have enough self-respoect to do this. Hopefully now that ive cut them all off, I will find friendships where we both make equal effort screw them all. LOVE YOURSELF!
