Are you surrounded by the people you wanna be surrounded by?

I'm not friendless, but I wish I had different people around me. Ever since I started doing RSD, I met tons of people, but they were never "my" crowd, ya know? Ever thought about having people around you that were... More your style? I don't know if I'm getting what I wanna convey across... But ever felt lonely, DESPITE having a lot of people around you?

Seeing my age, I'm at that point in time where I'm changing(actually, I'm improving, not changing) and none of the people around me are interested in all the new stuff I wanna do, they wanna continue like they always been doing... And none of the new people I met necessarily do what I do or even speak the same language.

The kicker here is that I don't really need someone with the same interests as me, I just want to meet people I can speak to and they get the same vibe I'm trying to give(confused? You should be!), also on "the road" like myself.

For those who understood this mess, do you ever feel the same way? That you wanna meet people on the same road as you?

For those who can't understand this mess, it's like... Dang! I don't know what to say...!

I know what you mean. Alot of the people around me seem to be stuck in a rut and want to do the same things they have been doing for years. I would like to branch out and start doing things i am more interested in but it is always hard to meet like minded people.

Even when I'm with other people, I'm alone. It's kind of nice. Lot of me time. Watching myself slowly decay and descend into the madness that only true isolation can bring you.

What's your frequency, Kenneth?

I get what you mean. You can feel alone even while you have tons of friends around you if you just don't seem to mesh with them as well as you used to. I'm friendless but I don't bother with people who don't fully...connect with me and my life. If we don't have a great connection I will just ignore you and won't be friends with you. Acquaintances at best. if we do happen to have a good connection then it is the kind of relationship where I would never feel lonely with that person around.

I think I'm getting what you're saying. I have a similar situation, I work with a bunch of people all older than me and are almost all completely opposite of me. I'm typically a more reserved, quiet, keep to myself sorta person. Literally all of my co-workers go out drinking quite often, and I've never really drank before. Most of them are the outdoorsy, lots of mechanically knowledged "manly" men, while I'm more of a recluse, rather-work-with-computers person.

In short, there are a lot of people around me at all times at my job, but at the same time it feels like I'm the only one. And getting on these forums like this is kind of a way I find more people like me, considering there's only two people in my life that share my interests, them being my close friends.

I was a jock in school, played on my high school soccer team, went to parties every weekend and didn't do very well in school due to the fact I just mainly at school to mess around with girls and socialize but now that I'm out of high school and got into Anime and Manga, I have nobody to talk too about it or I have no idea how to even bring it up to people that may like it but are in the same boat as me and don't know how to ask. Always talking about sports and guy shit with the brosephs but would love someone who actually likes talking about this stuff in real life. I always joke around with my friends saying imma marry a nerd, they take it as a joke but to me, i would actually do it haha

Not really, my nerd friends are still in mid school, so I wanna make friends with the nerd kids in my school but I'm too shy and they don't really notice me, unless I draw.
But the people who surround me are pretty nice so yeah, it could have been worse.

You get used to it.

I'll tell you a secret. There will be lots of people in your life that you only connect with on a superficial level. Very simply, you just "get along". You'll get most of your social needs out of that, or more specifically, you'll have to.

As you get older, if you work on things you love, you get better. As you get better, you leave people behind, it's a fact of life. If you're not too high up yet, you'll meet people ahead of you that way. Still, the more average you are, the more peers you'll have, including those self-professed isolationists. But if you really go the distance in something, the odds are pretty good there won't be a community for that. If you did that certain something to connect with others, it might backfire at that point.

I try all the time to make new friends, and it disappoints me when they demonstrate that they belong in specific (usually bland) categories. But that's how they are. I don't particularly judge them for it. I do however blame them when they don't reach beyond what they are to try to learn something new, or different.

Yes I'm currently living in the town I grew up in, and most of my family is there. I'll be leaving to travel more soon though, then I'll always be surrounded by strangers and new friends.

Yeah, sometimes.
I have heaps of people around me I know, but none that I really can connect with properly. Of course, there are my best friends, but I don't really hang out with them much other than at school.
I dunno tho, I'm going through highschool, so isn't this sorta suppose to happen as a mimic of real life? Most of the people around me annoy me, and none are interested in what I'm interested in (save a few). Its like everyone needs image, attention and relationships. As school goes by, that sorta stuff seems to get heavier, and I hate it a lot because I am not ready and its not my thing. So I guess no, but without my best friends I don't think i'd cope well

(I think my answer sorta moved away from the question)

I'm not surrounded by nobody IRL. I just have my Skype groups and they're pretty cool people.
