    I'm not sure if the original poster is a teenager, if you are, you're dealing with a lot of normal things. I had a crush on this guy for probably 3 years, I honestly don't think he knew I existed, so at least you put yourself out there.

    I up until I hit 40 something never felt comfortable in my own skin, now I do. Those two people who said negative things about you aren't your real friends. Unfortunately you will know many people like that in life, then you'll meet at least one person who will be a true friend who you can be your 100 percent self with. The other people don't really matter. People in general judge other people, especially in middle and high school. I was pretty wacky in school, I did my own thing and didn't dress like the preppy norm I was surrounded with. I wasn't super popular and spent a lot of time reading. I have to say looking back I don't regret being myself and someday you won't either. God bless you.

I had prayed the day before yesterday for God to give me a sign or two just to make sure I knew whether or not that guy likes me.

    Turns out, that guy doesn't like me. I've been pathetic and an idiot for liking the same dude for nearly 5 years. I also know how he and my other friend feel about me. (I call them friends but we hardly TALK talk.) They both think I'm weird and maybe even just a little too much. Or creepy. And annoying. Maybe even clingy.

    I don't know why I'm like this. I know I'm socially awkward and that probably contributed to the curse of people thinking I'm weird. I'm either too quiet or too loud. I'm either too shy or too blunt. I blush and stutter and sweat when I'm talked to by a stranger. I can hardly handle paying for things at stores and I nearly cry if I lose the person I was with in public. Then I get these adrenaline rushes that make me do things I don't mean to and make me seem silly and stupid. I'm not stupid. Occasionally, I've had a few temporary friends say I was fun and cool, but if I was, then why am I being weird?
    I just want friends. And I would love to have a boyfriend that I could hang out with and just have fun doing little things together. But I live in the middle of nowhere with no real friends, let alone love interests. I'm tired of being alone. And it hurts when a guy you've been after for many years is actually not even fond of you.

    So I know I'm alone. Oh, yeah, I have God. But that isn't the same. I mean, my brother always wants me to listen to his problems and all he has to say but if I try to tell him mine, he turns the convo back to himself. I wish someone would listen and care.

    (Yeah, I know. I'm whining and it's pathetic and I shouldn't do it. But if I'm already creepy and weird then why not be pathetic too?)

    So tell me. Am I the only one here feeling this way?
    Everything you wrote sounds normal to me.

    I have a brother who, while growing up, spent all his free time either taking care of his reptiles and amphibians or going to the park to find more. He had 200 box turtles, 1-10 snakes, 3-10 pond-loving turtles, 3-5 links, 2-50 bullfrogs and leopard frogs, 2-50 tree toads, assorted skinks, 1-2 chameleons, an iguana, a caman (relative to gators and crocs), 1-3 horned toads, about a dozen gerbils and mice (snake food), and 5-50 rabbits (five were breeders, but he'd sell the babies to pet stores right before Easter, and the proceeds would go to feeding his critters.)

    He never talked. Well, he did. About once a day if he absolutely needed to. (Usually something like, "Lift up this log." Which, I knew meant we were searching for a stray snake, or at worse worms and grubs to feed his critters, so he didn't have to even tell me why. lol)

    Oh, and he was also dyslexic and dyscalculic. (We didn't have those words when we were growing up, so I never got why it took him so much effort to read, do math, or study. I just knew it did, so we all helped him. He wasn't stupid. After all, he could treat every disease any of those critters could get, so he had a wealth of knowledge. It was just that spelling and numbers tripped him up.)

    How is that for both creepy and weird? Can it get any cripper?

    Well, yes. It could. You see, his room smelled like a reptile house at a zoo. He also always had either a cotton ball stretch out or a wade of string. A wad of either with a long piece sticking out and a smaller clump on the bottom. The longer piece was a leg. The clump at the bottom was a foot. He called the wad "Thingy." "Thingy" was as much a part of his life as my stuffed animals were part of mine. BUT even when I got too old for stuffed animals, he kept taking Thingy with him. AND, he's an older brother.

    What's the point of all this? Even though he didn't talk much, played with his critters way too much, and took Thingy wherever he went, he had friends!!!

    Why? Because creepy and weird is a very good thing for those of us who take the time to get Creepy and Weird!

    Most kids want to pretend they're normal just because they think that makes them like everyone else. They don't get in on the secret. Who wants to be like everybody else? Creepy and Weird struts to a different drummer and so, has much more to share than "normal" will ever have!

    Find those who like Creepy and Weird. I suspect they dance to their own drummer too, so Creepy and Weird becomes a good thing. Not a bad thing. They're out there. It's just when you're young many of them are still clinging to the sidelines of Normal, scared, and NOT enjoying the ride!

    And understand this -- I'm the old lady who writes books about MY stuffed animals. THEY waited for me to return. And I found the guy who enjoys my strangeness as much as I do.

    As for boyfriends, in my opinion the only reason to have one is if you want to marry him.

    But those "friends" of yours stink. Period. Hate to be so blunt, especially when talking about people you go to church with, but you just need to detach yourself from them. When you love a person, and I am speaking from personal experience, their personal flaws, past, etc... is not going to make you love them less.

    And may I ask how exactly they communicated to you that they thought you were weird in a bad way?
    Don't discount the friends yet. It works about the same way it works on this site. One person says to you, "I don't like you. and nobody else does too, because you're ..." Meanwhile, your real friends are behind you, rolling their eyes, but you don't see them rolling their eyes, and they're silent, because it's just such nonsense, why say anything, and all the while, you don't know they rolled their eyes, because they're behind you, so you think the idiot saying you're weird and creepy is speaking for them...

    And all that happens before you realize it's pretty stupid, so just turn around and hang out with the friend(s) that walk away with you. Then wait to see if others are still friends, but they want to stay friends with the other person too.

    Don't ever think all this ends at 20. The only difference is we finally figure out the reality. lol

    It takes strength to stay alone. Not a strength I'd want, but it isn't weakness. I think there is someone for you too. The problem is the weirder we are the less people can accept us. You have less to find than some. Not the same as "none."

    You could pay me to do it again, but I'm talking 7 figures, at least. My stomach is twisting just thinking about it.
