20 People Share Where Their High School ‘Lonely Guy’ Ended Up
During our high school years, we met many different kinds of kids. Jocks, whiz kids, popular kids and not forgetting the loners. Each of us starts our journey entering a society of our peers and dealing with that reality as best we know how under the circumstances until we eventually get into the real world.
One Redditor got curious about where the lonely guy from our high school class ended up when they finally got out of school. Did they reinvent themselves to break out of their quiet ways or did they remain a step removed from society as they did in school? Many netizens recalled what they’d heard or quickly googled their ‘resident HS lonely boy’ to find out and shared some rather insightful updates, as you can see below.

#1 I became a girl! I’m much less angry and sad nowadays.
#2 Just Googled him. Apparently he finally got a girlfriend in college, got her pregnant, then [took theirs and his own life]. Jesus. I wish I hadn’t checked.
Sebastian J.: Absolutely tragic. The poor woman.
#3 He married a pretty artist from Syracuse and also typed this sentence
#4 He is sitting in a data science conference reading Reddit. I am sitting in a data science conference reading Reddit.
LizzieBoredom: You should introduce yourselves.
#5 That was me. I always sat at my own table with the occasional foreign exchange student. I got out of school and worked really hard. I just turned 48 and I still haven’t peaked. I have a large portfolio of real estate and do a lot of traveling. I wanted something more for myself but I didn’t really have that confidence until after school. I now live an incredible life. There is hope for us losers who aren’t afraid of a little work.
#6 Still lonely. However, he worked his way up within a KFC franchise through high school and bought his first house early on even though he didn’t do well at school. Then worked in the army for 10 years and bought property 2 and 3. Now works as a director on a cruise liner and goes country to country by himself. No partners or girlfriends ever but financially well off
#7 Well, I just googled him and he’s a Georgetown law professor.
I’m done: Oh wow! (Georgetown is a VERY good school)
#8 I joined the navy at seventeen. Married at thirty.retired at fifty five. In high school I could go weeks without a word spoken to me. F**k my early life all to hell.
Joshua David: I wish I had your sense of self. I sit and wallow, like a lot of others do too, in my early life. I wallow in the missed opportunities I thought I made peace with, but find in hindsight it’s not really the case. I wallow in the negative but not before rubbing honey all over myself before nuzzling and commiserating with. Be amazing to f my early life.
#9 He joined a cult and completely cut ties with his family. There was an article written about said cult recently and his name pops up quite a bit, so he must have some kind of position of authority in it.
LizzieBoredom: He is also a famous actor once married to Nichole Kidman.
#10 he ended up graduating top of the class, got a full ride scholarship to cornel got his masters makes 7 figures a year and is happily married with two kids. i was one of his few friends in highschool and dude is doing amazing in all aspect of his life
Ima Manimal: Those who peak later peak higher. 😀
#11 He became an actually model for high class perfumes and brands and not one those instagram / tik tok ” models “
#12 Got cancer very suddenly and died,went to his funeral he was just 16 the youngest in our class,truly a tragedy.
#13 Hard to really say who was really lonely or not. Plenty of lonely people that forced themselves in the crowd.
Anyways there was a kid his sister was one of the prettiest most popular at school. She was a senior and he was a freshman. He got the principal to let him put on a concert for lunch period for his band. One of the teachers watching lunch shut him down because he was doing “screamo music” about pop tarts. A month later he shot himself in the head.
Everyone plays it off that he was lonely etc. I never believed that and I thought his concert took a lot of self courage. He was hanging out with his friends. It was the bullying because he wanted to be himself and not fit in the norm. His sister stopped going to school and idk what happened to her. It’s sad how cruel we as kids are.
#14 That was me! Got my master’s and work for a large bank as an analyst. Still single though.
#15 He’s me :3 I’m doing my best to make friends and be social and approaching girls, but literally nothing is working and I have pretty much lost all hope. People objectively worse than me seem to be winning, douche bags, abusers, etc. They all have friends, girlfriends, social circle, and I’m a decent human being with hobbies that exist outside and off the internet, I’m well read, and I like latin dancing. I can’t make it work. I give up.
#16 He grew several inches after high school.. went into tech. Was very successful and now has a supermodel wife and a beautiful family.. Another guy became a pediatric surgeon. Was married and had a daughter.. over the years his wife disappeared from his Facebook post and it was just him and his daughter.. in a few years ago he married a super model Eastern European nurse. And the third guy climbed into a bottle and never got out…
#17 He became an entrepreneur of a really successful company. Employed the 3 jokers who used to bully the heck out of him. They still don’t know who he is.
Sonja: Yeah, bullies tend to foreget. The axe may forget, but the tree remembers.
#18 The person I always thought of as possibly lonely retained the same couple of friends for the past 13 years and they still seem to enjoy getting together and doing the things they did back then. Video games, anime, etc. One of the most happy-go-lucky, friendly, and popular guys I knew took his own life a couple of years back.
Katie Lutesinger: It always seems to be the one who look the happiest. A local guy who everyone knew and loved because of his happy smile and big-hearted, friendly ways took his own life about a year ago and everyone bar one or two close confidants was completely shocked.
#19 He was my friend, He didn’t make it.
#20 Married with four kids, good career. Just took him a little longer than some to come out of his shell. (It was me)
