One of my friends was kind of like that when she was younger, and she was also homeschooled.

I'm not surprised people your age are jerks either. No offense to you though, since I felt the same way when I was a teenager too.

If I want to ask girls out, or even just socialize with girls, it should be because I want to, and not because I feel an obligation to, just because they're there.

That being said, I might bring up how I was asked why I didn't talk to girls, when there were a couple of other guys in the school who never really went out of their way to talk to girls and nobody seemed to wonder about them. I, on the other hand, did talk to girls, even if I wasn't trying to get into their pants or anything.
I understand that notion. I know my fellow male peers would make the most crass, lockerroom talk and it was so repulsive. And then when they would question me about why I wasn't "hooking up" with the girls, I would just say, "If you had a daughter, would you want a guy with your personality, to hook up with her?" Immediate silence and that was the end of that.

I can empathize with that too, with the experiences in my life that forced me to grow up fast. When I was a teenager, I had small cousins who were kids and I had more fun with them because they appreciated the simple things in life (making pastries, crafts, simple childlike games, etc.). The more hardship you experience, the more a person seems to gravitate and appreciate the simple joys of life.
On the other end of the age spectrum, I felt that I could only get along with adults over the age of 40 when I was a teenager since I had experienced a lot when I was younger.

I was somewhat of a goody-goody in school too, so that's probably why I'd get asked that so much. One girl actually told me that I don't seem like someone who'd have a girlfriend since she claimed I was so quiet. I don't think I was THAT quiet though. I remember one guy in my grade who also didn't say much, but he was practically a mime compared to me.

I've also been around guys who carry on disturbing conversations about girls. Sometimes it actually made me ashamed to be a guy. I also had this thought as to why they shouldn't make a big deal if they don't see me talking to girls much. After all, it could mean more for them.

No, not all members of my family. Just my sister because she's a two-faced b*tch. And I'm not all up in her business. I don't invade her privacy and tell her what to do with her life. I was just upset that she had a wedding behind our backs and blatantly lied and said she was getting married this year when she got married in Nov. of last year. And, yeah, I didn't agree with the fact that she was living with somebody she hadn't known for even a year and quit her job because he told her to. She's the hypocrite because she acts like we can't know what she's doing, but she wants to know what we're doing and tries to tell us what to do with our lives, yet we can't give her advice about her own life and let her know that there are some things we don't approve of.

You can call me a hypocrite all you want. I really don't care anymore. I hate my sister and want nothing to do with her.

The guy sounds like a real manipulator. Maybe your sister needs help?

Don't like shaving and always have to hear 'when are you going to shave again?' I just give a different answer everytime to keep it halfway interesting.

Here's one I really really hate:

Are you going to have enough time to finish your work before the end of the day? I never know how to answer it.

All. For some reason I have very little patience for answering questions. I have no idea why, since I clearly have no problem explaining myself or whatever.

I think it's that it seems as if people ask me questions only when I'm wrapped up in something else and don't really have time for them.

"Why don't you have a girlfriend? Are you gay?"

And no, I'm not in high school. So it's even sadder when someone asks me that. Fortunately it's not very often.
