    I certainly don't have any social groups capable of accepting me as the real me, though. 2% of the population are genius, 1% high-performance. In this city of 10m, that's 100 000. And we do nothing to socialise. Perhaps we ahould start a meetup - but how to exclude the groupies?

    Yeah but it does not count. It is much easier to talk to people even girls on a forum. Somewhat easy in chat too. It's person to person that's impossible.

    Of course it counts, it's still communication, simply not face to face. I've known several people who met-up with one another through online forums, and some of them are still together.

    That's your anxiety speaking, not reality. Firstly, nobody's perfect. Secondly, at least 50% of conversation's listening empathically. That's harder online, of course, but not impossible. Thirdly, your interlocutor's likely feeling even more nervous. So relax and look around you. Let the world in so you're not overthinking.

    Just right now I am in virtual crap life group and I find it annoying. Wish I did not join tonight. One goes on about her fiancé while another talks about her husband and another guy talks about is wife while showing his young baby daughter who won't shut the hell up. Had to mute my speakers. Really annoying. I even snapped at them a bit. The only single guy besides me in the group is Keith. So yes I am jealous. Deal with or get lost. Also, my doctor increased my meds again.

    I get jealous sometimes. I don't necessarily get mad, but I would like to have and be able to do the things that other people can do. I don't really have many skills, friends, or anything like that. I sometimes envy other people that have managed to fully get involved in hobbies they enjoy, have small and close friend circles, and do well academically. A lot of those things are my fault for not doing well in them, but it still frustrates me.
