I am a junior in high school. I don't have any friends...I never have....I'm so lonely...I'm all alone. I hate it. However, I feel that there is a glimmer of hope. There are a select few that don't seem to completely help me...I think. They actually say hi to me, and I've even had small discussions with some of them. But...its too small....its hardly a conversation....I want to approach them...but...I can't....I know that I have to if I want to end this loneliness....I know that "Courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality" (Yes I'm quoting Richter Abend from Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World / Knight of Ratatosk.) But...I just can't make myself do it. I'm too shy. They'd probably hate me for it....It would look so weird if I suddenly say took a seat near them at lunch (Most of them coincidently sit a few seats down from me).....Although one asked me to sit by her and her friends (Who I've made "small talk" if you will, with) at lunch. However, the period had ended. How should I approach them? What should I do? I'm so torn. I don't want to ruin this potentially good thing and make an *** out of myself. But I also don't want this opprotunity to slip through my fingers.
