Do you ever feel desperate for somebody (can be somebody in particular or just in general) to pay attention to you?

Usually when I want help in a home improvement store.

I’m always yelling at my TV.

No, my wife and kids make sure I'm never starved for attention.

I understand where you're coming from, though. Before I met my wife, I was pretty lonely even when I shouldn't have been.

You might get yourself tested for Asperger's...having that makes it hard to read people. There's really nothing they can do for it, other than a bit of therapy (which I consider 'Renting A Friend' :P), but at least you'll know what it is, and that does help a lot.

I spend time helping people and welcome time when people don't want something from me. I treasure my alone time to decompress.

No, but I can remember feeling that way as a child.

Of course, that’s natural

I experience both frequently.

I worry when I ask people to spend time with me or even just take to me I am being overly needy. I have never been very good at judging social situations, so I usually just end up seeing distant when I am just trying to give somebody the space I think they want. It doesn't help that I'm not particularly good at making friends. I feel socially isolated a lot. And this has turned into more of a rant than I meant it to so I'm just gonna stop before I dig myself a deeper hole.

You seem to function very well on here. I don’t know your age but as you mature these things will almost certainly improve.

You'll be alright. Just try not to worry about that stuff, live your life, and good stuff will happen. Finding your significant other will cure all that, if nothing else does.
