I finally made an account on this site after endless lurking hours, mostly because I am looking for a good community of gamers (which I hope I'v found). The heart of the question though is; Has anyone ever felt or feel that they are an outcast by this definition :
"Someone who doesn't belong in his main social area (work, school, the street) Has only a few friends, but usually doesn't really hang out with them. Someone who is told by his betters that he has wisdom beyond his years, but his peers make fun of him for it. He's a little insane, after all, humans are social creatures. But his heart is mature, calm and kind. He never really does anything big for himself, and most of the things he does are for other people. He's just misunderstood, and people hate him for no reason. He's usually the victim of every negative stereotype and rumor. But hey, he doesn't have a social life, it doesn't matter to him, he hardly has anything to lose."
This often describes my situation in life at the moment. I'm 21 working at a retail store, going back to college in January to continue my career. Though the point here is that I have friends at work and friends from high school/college but I am often left out of "gatherings" of these social groups that I partake in. I really don't know why I am always just left out of things. The last guy to know that something is happening, probably my whining like this doesn't help my case at all I was mostly just wondering if anyone feels the same way. I can't be the only one, nor do I think I am special in anyway to that regard. Anyway any thoughts are appreciated.
