Soon this will be the last thread on the talk about whatever you want here subforum, and probably the entire board.
It is an amazement this internet web forum's existence is still being funded.
Fifi, don't bump any more old threads. Let this board die. It is long overdue. And then soon enough this thread will die, and people who come here will see nothing. Everything that has ever been said here will be invisible.
When I was about seven years old, my brother and sisters made up a girlfriend for me, hailey with the ginger hair. they even made it into a chant. it wasn't even a real girl. ever since then i have been vociferously private about my social life when it comes to my family. so when i was just starting high school, literally that first dreaded couple of months, my cousin from america moved here (actually into my house) and was put in a bunch of my classes. when i got a girlfriend for a day in year 7 my whole family knew about it that afternoon. to this day, reference is still made about "sal's girlfriend". that is my only girlfriend ever.
school started so promising but by college i was very shy around girls. i had this thing where my eyes would water really easily when talking to anyone. this strange malfunction only increased my shyness and embarrassment. the only chance i had with talking to girls was if i had a mutual friend to kind of bridge out from. every person from my town had a bunch of friends from high school in their classes but not me. in every class in first year of college I was in a room of strangers and had to try and make friends. every single class.
