    I find the average human being, especially my age, so be, quite frankly, sociopathic.

    The level of ego, and condoning and encouraging hubris and snobbery, with "cool" and "awesome" just another word for superiority by bitches. The internet also makes people seem all the more shallower.

    anyone agree?

    The whole human race is crazy, some more so then others. I don't know who to be afraid of more, the ones that have no self control or the ones pretend to be nice, but are a super nova waiting to blow. And yes the youth is more crazy than the oldsters because they don't have the wisdom of experience to understand that what they are doing is illogical and psychopathic.

    I just want a real connection, I want real deep genuine people in my life, but most people just seem nasty and full of themselves, people are annoying.

    I love a person who is self aware, i cannot stress that statement enough.

    caring is free and its rewards are plentiful.

    Here's an example of what I mean.

    A twelve year old girl in the 70's has self-esteem issues, hates everyone and herself. She keeps to herself and never tells anybody.

    A modern pre-teen would go to Yahoo Answers(that was one of my first message boards) ask for help from other people and gains wisdom and experience.

    All you've done is talk trash about people you know. Shallow critiques of "shallow" people.

    "like attracts like" is overly simplistic, but not entirely wrong.

    Maybe you don't attract warmer people because
    (1)you are yourself focused on negative judgement of others
    (2)you selfishly want to be around better people rather than support the good in those you are around?

    Worth thinking about maybe?
    I've had the opposite problem in my life. If anything I've always felt almost unfairly surrounded by caring supportive people. Across cities and countries from rich academic settings to poor fight gym settings.

    One of the only things that makes me feel slightly less guilty for that fortune, and perhaps is causally related, is that since being very young I've actively searched for and tried to interact with what I consider to be the best parts of people. Everyone has failings -- do we dismiss their better parts for them? (Sometimes there's little choice; but I don't think that's often true.)

    Edit: I don't want to undersell the value of knowing when to step away from cruelty or like and being self-sufficient enough that one isn't rocked by every other individual's temporary implosions. I generally find it's hard to get involved in such things if one doesn't try... Maybe I'm ignorant of some other factors...

    Not really. I was an avid user during my mid-adolescence and everyone was generally helpful. I liked helping and answering other people's question. I will never forget my time I spent there, it was memorable to me.

    I helped people and in return, they gave me experience and knowledge. I drank from the fountain of knowledge and the people, they taught me what they knew.

    In the internet you'll probably see more shallow people because people are more revealing virtually when they are alone & no one can do anything to them when they goes wrong. They just reveal their true nature more often.

    To be honest, There are few people who are cold and dead inside, at least closer to death or to a certain degree.
    And also, to be honest, there are many people who are loving and caring.
    We should walk away from the former and walk towards the latter.

    People in general are self absorbed and lack empathy. Most people are also very repressed and staunch their true selves in order to seem normal. Frightfully boring, honestly.

    Also, the culture is increasingly breeding sociopaths because we don't value human life anymore, instead we indulge in technology and media that gives us the instant gratification and validation that people, it seems, just cannot give us.

    If the guy seems Cold to you, it's probably because you don't know him! I mean, think of it as a first date, would you unmask everything about yourself on the 1st date? lol, I don't, it takes a while for me to warm up and if I'm not feeling warm-fuzzy, it's probably because I don't know you well enough yet! So there are 2nd, 3rd and 4th chances to roll around. Men my age are ready to be settled down and busy working professionals, they're less ego-centric comparing to say a 22 year old.

    I hate it when people pose by narrowing their eyes, it doesn't look cool, it looks arrogant and fool of ones self, conceited, almost evil, most guys pose on here quite naturally, down to earth, which i like.

    and she Gets advise from people who don't know any more than her or haven't seen anything more than she has ... In the old days you learned to suck it up and come up with your own solutions, and not expect others to solve everything for you ... Gen Y is so smart,they can't even take a math test without a calculator

    I agree a ton of people I seem to talk to have a very heavy ego. I say usually what's best to do is actually tell them to fuck off or ask why they act like they don't give a shit when you know they do because they're hitting you up. Either ignore them, or actually ask them "Why are you a dickmeat?" Be blunt with these mofos, they can't take heat.

    I don't know anyone your age,but if I think about what it was like to be your age, most of us were self-absorbed - concerned about our future school/work/career. Internet connections are shallower - they are after all, not real connections - too much left to the imagination. I am sure that there are lots of not so shallow people out there, less hubris and more humility (even in your age group) - you just have to find them.

    They have seen more than she has because they're usually older people helping the young or people of similar age.Suck it up? Keep the problem to myself and bottle it up? Are you telling me I'm not allow to ask a sincere question and ask help from other people? People give others advice and it's up to them to take it and solve the problem for themselves. I gave you a math book and that doesn't necessarily mean I did the math homework for you.

    Some of us were born to be a bit warmer, more caring individuals than others. The moment you accept the former statement as 'truth' will be when you start to find positive attributes in other people. Most importantly sorround yourself with individuals that you have a strong connection with and similar attitudes and outlooks- one great friend serves better than a thousand acquaintances. When you find those diamonds don't ever let them go.

    The majority of the people I talk to have an amazing amount of confidence. I really don't understand it. Many will plainly say "I come first." Maybe it's a straight thing.
