How lonely are you /10?

    Idk really.

    I don't have a single friend. I'm in A2 now but there hasn't been a single occasion where I've ever met up with anyone from sixth form outside of school. I sit and eat lunch on my own. The only socialisation I get is with teachers, which is why I often hang around after class and pack up real slow so I have an excuse to talk to them. I mean, there's no one else who I can tell that I sent my UCAS in, or that I sat an admissions test the other day. I have no one to share that with. But I think that just bugs them.

    I think I probably say less than 50 words a day in sixth form to other people my own age, on average. Naturally over the weekend I don't talk to anyone. I never get any messages on Facebook or anything. But I'm not completely passive either. The other day I tried asking someone how they were doing over Facebook. No response. Even when I really really tried to make an effort and be extroverted at the beginning of AS, it came to nothing and just drained me of my energy.

    Not a day goes by without me thinking about how I don't have friends. Fortunately I'm not totally deprived because there are some people I talk to online occasionally. I don't know if they're really 'friends' though. I still feel alone.

    So I guess 9/10, even though it doesn't feel too bad. Maybe I've just gotten used to it. Honestly it's so painful trying to make friends, it's so forced, can it really be worth it? But I'm not capable of it anyway; it's impossible.

    I'd say an 8. I have lots of friends but I still feel alone around them.

    I relate to this a lot, especially staying behind later just to make conversations with teachers. Hopefully university will be what you make of it.

    Probably around 2/10

    I got too much to do on my own, and find someone's company unnecessary and getting in the way a lot of times.

    Each day you can calculate it by taking my posts during sociable hours and using the reciprocal.

    EDIT: actually, sod the reciprocal part

    A lot of pathetic people in here...

    0/10 due to wife, close with family, loads of friends in all countries I ever lived in, and a job which requires social interaction.

    I am the same in a lot of ways- I was too scared to even try to sit with people at lunch because I didn't feel I knew them well enough, so I stayed in the library all the time. Now though, I eat lunch with people from my tutorial and old politics class twice a week still never see people outside of college though. I now get on with people and do chat to people at college and think I am liked which is nice. I don't have a social life at home though, and I don't know how to start one- or, sometimes, even if I would enjoy it with how I am. My old friend who I haven't seen for ages (she's at uni and before then had a boyfriend who she saw a lot) has invited me to the Leeds Vegan Christmas market in November though, which is nice

    You're pathetic for not being a bit more sympathetic.

    Less intelligent people are often less lonely.
