    My ex friend spoke to me today although she said that i shouldn't speak to her:confused:, we still sit together though (teacher rule) so today i decided not to sit with her to show that i amn't dependent on her. I ended up sitting alone. I don't hang around the rest of her friends because i dislike their personality. At present, i always go to the library to read during MY FREE LESSONS, BREAK AND LUNCH because of tis i feel like a loser, DO you think i am a loser??

    To make matters worse, I sit alone during form as well which lasts for ONLY 15minutes, i feel isolated. I do have some friends though but they like being in the commonroom which i dislike so much because i feel awkward, am shy and don't like crowded places.

    I need your advice and is anyone going through this situation? Thanks.

    You can't really consider them as friends if you feel shy around them. Just sounds like you've fallen at the first hurdle -- actually trying to make an effort to make friends.

    don't worry about it. I had like 2 friends in school and they were in none of my classes for 6th form. You're there to learn, why do you give a **** if people think you're a "loser"?

    That sounds exactly like my last year at school. Although in my situation I literally didn't have anyone to hang around with (our evil new deputy head changed everyone's timetables so instead of all the year 10 and 11s having one lunchtime all week, we all had different lunch times so suddenly not only were none of my friends in any of my lessons, but we didn't even get to hang out at lunch either). Fun times. :rolleyes:

    There were other people in my classes that I talked to in lessons but didn't know any of them well enough to hang out with them (plus I tended to not like their other friends). I didn't mind so much to begin with (I liked the library :o: ) but after a while it gets seriously depressing.

    If you don't mind being on your own it's not particularly weird, but you've said you feel isolated so obviously you do mind. It is a little odd to isolate yourself on purpose if there are friends you could hang out with though. If you don't like going to the common room, why not suggest to your friends that you all go and do something else? Or stay with them for part of the time and go somewhere else if you get fed up? You should make an effort to spend time with other people, or you're only going to make yourself miserable.

    You just need to find some new people to hang around with. Why not start going to the common room with your other friends and try improving your confidence? (:

    I will try going to the commonroom, it's true though i need to socialise more and i do have confidence, it is just that i am paranoid of what people think of me:eek:.Thanks everyone for the reply, keep the reply coming though)

    weird is subjective.

    Use this as a lesson to find your own path in life.:yes:

    I dont think you're weird at all, I'd much rather be by myself than with people I dont like.
