Nice try... but no.

From an outside perspective I probably look like a normal person.

Trust me, I am anything but normal. Whatever goes on inside my head isn't really controlled by me; it takes all of my concentration to even monitor it.

But anyway, in the interest of appearing like a somewhat normal member of society,I am friendly, talkative, and I seem approachable.

The problem is people get bored with me very quickly for some reason. I have had friends, but never for more than a few months at a time. For whatever reason they all have stopped calling me, even though I continue to try to make plans. And if by some miracle we do make plans to hang out or socialize, they stand me up at the last minute.

So I have given up trying to make lasting fiendships with people and have settled with being that person you can call when you need to move your furniture around, but you won't call if there's a party.

I can't get anybody to be friends with me for over a year. I'm being used by the people who are forced to see me on a regular basis through circumstance. And I've given up; I no longer care what happens to me.

So I spend my nights alone reading, running errands, or at the gym. I spend my days working with minimal conversation. And the conversations I do have are shallow and easily forgotten.

I'm just alone with my thoughts, Few of which are happy.

This is totally me. The bad thing is I do care for my ex-best-friends. And it kinda hurts not being able to hang out with them.

Sounds like to me that you a typical, type b individual. There's nothing wrong with that. You are socially and most times, emotionally passive. Although your concerns bother you, they haven't disturbed you to the point where you've had enough of it. When that happens, you should assert yourself and ask them straight up why your friends treat you the way they do. If they are anywhere half way decent people, they should level with you. I don't think its okay to be cool with being used and you shouldn't either. However, that's just my opinion. Also, perhaps talking with someone you normally wouldn't may open a few new doors to the quality of people you could consider friends.

Why don't you try just being totally selfish and go out and do whatever makes you the most happy. Travel, skydive, whatever. The heck with everone else. They will come running when they see you are happy and confident and it will be you who decides whether to continue the friendship or not. If you don't have the money, education or time to achieve your goal right away, don't let that stop you. It's about the process. You will start being happier right away as you begin moving toward your goal. Peace and love to you.
