Default Relationship Rant

I'm in high school. And frankly, I really hate when people just look at me and expect me to like them. It's so cheesy, I really have nobody who I can like. I just want to talk to someone and get to know them first, as I've gotten to the point where I'm very interesting in personalities and lasting relationships, and less about the way they may look, as long as we're friends or something.

But, I just don't have any friends who want to hang out with me like that, and my only friend is really my sister. It makes me lonely but hopeful that one day I'll have someone I can be close to like I am to my family. It's like I'm extending the olive branch, in a nice, comforting way.

So to recap, I've really thought about a lasting relationship where I can get to know someone but unfortunately nobody is available and I don't really like the people who just stare at me. It's weird.

Maybe your criteria regarding potential friends are too demanding.

Yeah, maybe. I've had a rough time growing up which makes me very selective of who I want to hang out with. Frankly, I'm very shy and mostly in the past anyone I have ever taken interest to was very outgoing, so I decided to just give up this year.

I've focused on my grades, and it's been a pain in the behind to maintain a GPA higher than 4.0 but I've done it.

I just think I'm at the point where I want to be serious about who I am since I know what my career choice will be once I graduate and I want someone who is serious about it too.

I can make friends, I just choose not to because I don't trust other people.

I think next August, I'll make friends with some of the new people who come to my school (Many people transfer to my school as Juniors) and see what happens.

Sorry if this reply was somewhat long. Haha.

Thanks!

No prob. But cool, if you can plan it that way.

I also focus on my academic education, which is why I attended a boarding school last year - thousands of miles away from home.

Anyway, that was my plan.

Here I experienced real cliché Asians, who are mainly focused on learning. Many are very strict with it. They hardly make friends. That made me think. My conclusion was, that there's more than this little universe as this campus of erudition can provide.

Meanwhile, I'm friends with some folks from another, local high school and glad to be able to talk to those dudes and hang with'em outside the boarding school's campus now and then.
