Why do you think people don't like you?

Yes. In order for us to offer you some advice, we'll need to know a little bit about what's happening.

welcome to our online abode, katelyn!

you've got our attention apparently, i'd like to help you too however i can so, please explain. :)

whenever i have felt that somebody or some groups of people have disliked me, i've often been wrong. not everyone relates and communicates to others in the same way.

@Kip: Maybe The Haven is more suitable for so sensitive a discussion ... ?

For me at 14, it was a combination of lack of eye contact, interests not in line with my age (both younger and older) and my inability to understand sarcasm. I also came across as gay and when asked if I was straight, answered it literally since I never heard that expression before (and was mercilessly teased as a result). I also misinterpreted playful teasing as bullying but given my experiences, it's not hard to understand why.

I didn't know how to connect with other people. There were girls I liked and I assumed that, by my staring at them, they would eventually get the hint. They didn't. They thought I was creepy.

Kids can be mean.

It happens and sucks.
