I am a loner that has never learned social skills since I was a child. I’m also one of the few people that doesn’t use Facebook/Myspace/LinkedIn. I like YA because you can remain anonymous, but there’s no way I can embarass myself to the world with a Facebook account that has 0 friends. Not to mention, I’m very ugly and there’s no way I can put a picture of my face online. But these days it’s almost impossible to make friends if you don’t have Facebook. It’s ironic that I got a degree in computer science because it’s a field that’s supposed to fit loners, but it’s technology (well, IMO just marketing) that’s making people like me more and more ostracized.
