Most Annoying Things About Being the Odd One Out In a Circle of Friends

Although having lots of friends can be great, it can be really annoying, especially if you are considered 'different' from the others. Here are some of the most annoying things about being the odd one in a circle of friends!
The Top Ten
1 Everyone else seems to be best friends

I'm best friends with one of them, but the others don't usually care if I'm there.

They always seem annoyingly close.

Sooo true. This and #2 resumes my frienship with others at my school.

2 You never get told anything

I was near them but they never said anything to me, just to each other and others.

The others seem to know something all the time and they will never tell you.

That's exactly how I get treated because my friends are idiots!

3 You are excluded if you do not have something they all do

My friends had a group or as they call it they're "squad" (it was only like 4 people )
And they said I can't join unless I have a Xbox one. And my friend joined the squad and so I was down to one friend now. And I'm not saying I hate fact the squad is basically my whole friends trying to act cool and ever since the leader of the squad (also my asdf movie best friend) left the school the squad was no more. We still talk...__.

Designer clothes, social media... if you don't have something and all your friends *seem* to, you feel left out when they talk about it.

4 They watch and gossip about shows you don't like

They gossip about shows you don't watch and won't explain.

I don't like Gravity Falls and yet my crush in school loves it, I once joked about hating it and she nearly got triggered

My friends watch some show named ''PLL'' and they wont stop talking about it, and they never talk about some shows I like

5 They always stand up for each other, even though the person they're standing up for is obviously wrong

They always seem to believe what someone else says, even if they are obviously lying.

6 You never know their secrets

They whisper about things and refuse to tell you.

7 You're left out in games

They still see me as friends, but they always say "Oh, sorry we don't have any room on the team."

You are given the worst roles in games.

8 They make fun of you

Personal experience:

I was always the odd one out of six friends. Being the tallest, I tend to slouch a lot just to be nicer to them. Being the one who keeps silent almost 90% of the time (add the earphones) I tend to have a fear of being made fun of...and being the one who tends to havee "weird" (ahem Guns'n Roses and the like) taste in music, I get fun of. They, well three of those friends, tend to call me a wannabe just because of that. And they keep on pestering me to do their dirty work and be their scapegoat even if I almost lost my whole arm (literally) once because of it.

One time when I moved into a new school, I saw my friends ogling over someone else, and when I informed two of my only closest friends that I'm visiting, the other three didn't care. Those two literally ambushed me with hugs as soon as I step foot, but that was the last time I walked into that school.

A few weeks later I just came back with a first honor for the first quarter, and I decided to greet my friends...only to find out I've been kicked out of the groupchat along with those two friends. Why? Simple. Another of my friends was hailed the "new" artist of the group, even if her drawings (shhh) are pretty much, er...I won't say it. She was the one who kicked me out because SHE thought I was the one against her, trying to overshadow her with so-called crab mentality. Being drama queens, they never gave me a second chance to apologize even if I never really did anything.

The benefit is, karma hit them. That's all. But I still don't feel complete without those idiots...

9 You never get a partner

I hate partner work, because in a group of five friends, I sometimes feel left out, like they all divide into best friends and chitchat to each other first before the group. And I don't want any of the others to be alone so I usually wait for them all to ask, which clearly doesn't help me out in the situation.

You dread partner work because you are never chosen by anyone.

At school when we are told to get into partners,I come up to the nice people and offer to be partners with them but they just say sorry I already have a partner.I end up with the weird kid ben

10 They talk about you

They gossip about you and pretend they aren't if you ask them, even though you know they are.

The Contenders
11 You aren't invited to things
12 You are only there because the other kids are being "nice"
13 You always feel talked over
14 They do things you don't like

My friends all follow fads. I hate on fads when they come around. I ditched them.

15 You walk behind them and when you talk they don’t listen
16 They have all kinds of inside jokes and references that you never know about
17 They only talk to you when their main best friend is not around
18 They never respect you
19 Their life situation is better and different than yours
20 They only talk to you when they need something
