@goodnightrobots, I would suggest changing your focus. Focus on self-improvement and achieving goals that you set, and keep your search for like-minded people on the backburner. I completely agree that it is a shame that our media and entertainment outlets have turned into theaters of mindless self-indulgence and laughing at the misfortunes of others, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept their messages. This is going back to “staying true to yourself”. Reject those negative influences from your life, and focus on adding positive influences.
No one is not accepted socially at all, if you try meeting some new people, I’m sure you can find some like-minded individuals. And as far as social acceptance in general goes; do you really want to be accepted by those who value the negative influences?
