Idk bout everyone else but since high school ended, I only got a couple close friends left. Everything seems boring, and theres nothing exciting anymore. My routine consists of work, school, games, anime, and the occasional hangout. Maybe it's just me. Or anyone else out there?

ehhh, I'm kind of the same way, but then again, I was never a popular person in high school (I was the shy kid). But anyway, if most of your friends left you, or don't talk to you anymore, are they really your "friends"? I mean, I only have a few close buddies as well, but that's more than enough for me. We hang out couple times a month, talk to each other on FB almost every day, all that stuff. This also depends on whether they left for college or work and don't have time to do anything anymore.

Our routines are about the same, My routine is work, school, anime, sleep...and then sometimes games if I have time. But yeah, just be glad that you still have some friends left to hang out with. I knew a few close friends who moved to go to college, and I hardly talk to them anymore.

I guess it all depends on your viewpoint. I never had a lot of friends in the first place because I don't see the point in having friends that you don't hang out/ talk to.

I guess the heavier the burden, the stronger from it you become.

It isn't TOO bad. I mean it's better than having a ton of drama in your life.

<- Has no friends, but I still enjoy my life by drowning myself in anime.

I know what you mean >.< But I guess to get more friends and make life a bit more interesting, you should maybe do some random activities ... Like playing football, going to the gym.. Meh, that kinds of stuff, at least then you will be occupied with something else too:P

Eh, I've been that way since elementary. It's not even a big deal.

It is better to have five close friends than to have one hundred you don't even know. I can see what you mean. I was runner up for Homecoming King, Prom King, blah blah blah the list goes on. I pretty sure everyone here was told "High school is going to be the best time of your life so live it up". It is true. Once you get out you have all these responsibilities you didn't have when you were in high school. You have to understand that you're no longer a kid and now an adult. That does not mean you can't have fun or spice things up anymore though.

That's basically how my life is right now minus the school part, as I have chosen not to continue on with my education for a while. It's not so bad though. I plan to start drawing and painting again since I have a good amount of time before I go to work (my work schedule usually never varies.)

Since high school I have made no new friends except some here on CR. Just college for 2 years and now working....playing Xbox and seeing my friends from time to time. But I do feel more lonely because high school had my friends in one place. We need to make an effort now to get to see each other.

High school is such an unnatural social experiment...(swallowed the red pill)......You are now in the real world. Welcome.

My profession (teaching) puts me back in high school... so I guess that's what made my life sort of exciting in a way(?).

The kids pulling pranks on me, e.g. hiding things... and asking me outrageous questions, "Do you have a boyfriend?"
To which I replied, "It's none of your business". But they never stop asking me that.

There was this one time, another teacher said, "The next time I turn around, I don't want to see anyone talking."
Then this little 13 years old kid just started singing Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the heart" - "Turn around bright eyes..."

I wanted to burst out laughing, but I couldn't... I had to pretend to be angry.

In my own class, I always laugh at the stupid random things that they say. Everyday is a new comic relief from these crazy teenagers.

After highschool I became more socially awkward and more afraid of people.
I kind of lost contact with some friends and never really had the will to hang out with friends.
Making new friends (on my own - online and real life) is starting to become more difficult for me too since I feel that I might be bothering/annoying some people.
