    I've seen alot of teenagers in real life and on tsr,wishing they had boyfriends/girlfriends or that they are too short or too tall or ugly blah blah blah.

    Also the way people go out of there way to make "friends" in situations that they would normally wouldso that they could feel the need to be accepted or are afriad to be alone.

    Why are people so vain and insercure about themselves that they go in search of parteners at such an early age or the need to look good looking or to have confirmation of thier good looks.


    Cant people be more dependent on themselves or have pride in themselves enough to stick it out on th'er own.

    Or are teenager that weak?

    Almost everyone likes having friends
    Some people find it more difficult to make them though.

    I'm not afraid of being alone. I enjoy having friends, I enjoy having a gf. It makes life more fun. So naturally I look for those things.

    Hardly means I don't have pride in myself. You're an idiot.

    Teenagers are always dependent on their peers because they are leaving childhood and have no inherent individual identity as of yet. That's why they're so easy to manipulate by the culture industry. Especially now that family units are increasingly fractured.

    People have been conditioned to focus on petty things like vanity in order to make them easier to control. That's why big money is spent on churning out craprags designed to feed peoples insecurities, distrust their partners and generally instil neuroticism. Lets not get started on TV. Basically, culture can be a weapon and when you look around you're seeing the victims.

    No one can tell you what the matrix is, you have to see it for yourself.

    QFT.

    OP, you're a fool. My girlfriend is the best thing in my life, not some arm candy. I attach similar feelings to my friends. Get a life.

    I worry about people who don't like having friends. It's not really natural. Humans are social animals. I don't feel like I need to have a posse of friends with me everywhere though. I'm a lot happier wandering around on my own than I was when I was 11. It happens with confidence. I know I've got friends, so I don't feel like I need to have them beside me or text them every minute of every day to prove that. I have my close friends and a few other friends I enjoy chatting to, I don't really need more than that. I'd like a boyfriend, sure, and sometimes I feel a bit sad that I haven't got one, but those moments are rare. Most of the time I enjoy the fact that I can have crushes on several different actors at once and not feel the slightest bit guilty about it.

    I don't really see why you have such a problem with people having friends though, OP. I mean, it's nice to have people to chat to who you can have a laugh with and share opinions with. Teenagers are mostly naturally high-spirited, and we like having people to share that with. It's sad when people totally rely on their friends, but having them doesn't make you insecure, and it's quite hard to be insecure and vain at the same time (although I like to think I pull it off just kidding.), it just makes you sociable.

    Agree with your point on social stigma and vanity that you were trying to put across. I go to the library to read alone in my frees and do homework in my break alone. Probably why I get strange looks. I would love to have a group of good friends, but meh.. Guess I will have to stick it out for 2 more years; then I can rid myself of this reputation.

    I wouldn't call it a weakness to enjoy making friends... surely the opposite would be more worrying?
