Hi, I am new to this community and my name is Melanie. I am 18 years old and I have one friend who plainly put is not a good friend. I hang on to them because I am afraid to be completely alone. I know that I should find new friends but I am really shy when meeting new people. As I am typing I am really nervous about people reading this. I am not very sociable and I have a hard time expressing myself to others. I am very self-conscious which doesn't help any either. I also have a tendency to come off as rude and bitchy. I am tired of being viewed wrongly and people trying to take advantage of me. I am tired of feeling inferior to other people. I need new friends. If anyone else feels the same way as me add me as a friend. I need some.
