"I graduated college when I was 22 and I threw a party and I invited a bunch of people from my work and all my friends. I even bought some champagne for the party and no one showed up. Drank champagne alone and took a shower and cried."
Graduation party, party of one! Time to make new friends, buddy.
"My own personal one occurred during a summer many years ago during middle school. No one really talked to me, including my friends without me initiating the conversation. Eventually I just stopped, they all (but one) stopped talking to me, and I resorted to clicking mark as unread on our messages (which would display a little notification) and acting as though they actually wanted to talk to me because I was so lonely."
"I moved to a new town for university, but had 6 weeks to kill before the first semester started. Those 6 weeks were spent in solitude. I only went outside twice to buy food, and when I didn't sleep I played single player video games or read books.
Basically had no human interaction at all. Was pretty enjoyable, honestly."
I'm surprised you didn't start talking to the walls. We are glad you finally came out of your shell.
"I baked my own birthday cake, frosted it, wrote Happy Birthday and stuck candles in it, and then proceeded to eat it by myself over the course of the next few days. I took a picture of the cake so I could show my only close friend (who was away at his girlfriend's house) a few weeks later, so I could pretend I did it to be funny and enjoyed my birthday."
It's like Harry Potter, only you didn't become a wizard in the end. Boo.
"Back in middle school, I was very lonely so I became best friends with the tree in my back yard. I would run outside right after school and talk to it for a few hours every day as I climbed it. I told it about my day and it would talk back. I always got really sad in the winter when its leaves were gone so I took the dead leaves off the ground and places them in its branches to keep it warm. I cried a lot when we moved a couple years later. Everyone thought I was crying because I missed the house, but I was actually going to miss my tree."
"I was working out in the middle of nowhere in Georgia on long shifts all last year. I saw the same ten people each and every day and, needless to say, we all got pretty sick of one another. One day, my boss hands me a huge block of wax and tells me to go throw it away. Taking some inspiration from 'Castaway,' I buckled it into the passenger's seat of my work truck, carved a face into it with a screwdriver, and named him Staniel. When anyone ever asked about it, I'd simply say, 'Oh him? That's the boy. Say hello, Staniel.' Everybody was going kind of nutty at that point so no one found it that weird."
RIP, Staniel. You two were like two blocks of wax in a bee hive.
"Every Valentine's day since 2012 I get a giant double cheeseburger, fries, and a cherry coke from Carl's Jr. and a 5th of Powers whiskey. I then watch the following three movies: High Fidelity, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and 500 Days of Summer. Most years the bottle's over half empty by the time I pass out."
This sounds like a perfect Valentine's Day. Those are all of my favorite things. Will you be mine?
"I was third wheeling a couple and they decided to go for dinner. Tbh when they told me they wanted to eat alone it was understandable, but having to sit at the opposite table by myself as they laughed and talked was just depressing man. I played PAC-man on my phone the whole meal."
Wow wow wow wow wow. Maybe they should have told you that they wanted to eat alone before you guys left for dinner?
