Single Status Update
I'm nicknamed a contrarian jokingly by my friends, but I'm really starting to feel like I'm on a different wavelength than everyone I know
All my friends are Bernie supporters? I'm the lone Clinton fan
All my friends watch Game Grumps and Jon Tron? I haven't seen anything, don't plan to
All my friends love anime? I can't stand it, prefer manga
All my friends prefer Marvel? I like DC more, albeit slightly
All my friends love D&D? I can't stand D&D. I prefer Call of Cthulhu and Delta Green
etc etc etc
Anyone else feel like this?

These are some pretty minor differences. You should celebrate what you have in common.
It seems you and your friends have more in common than I do with most of my friends. Those dividing lines are pretty thin. If you like the rocket launcher and your friends like the super shotgun, that doesn't make either of you dislike doom. If you focus in on smaller and smaller details you will find differences in even the most identical personalities.
Well, if you have nothing in common with them...how did you become friends?
We all met and bonded over D&D. Over time I kinda grew to hate it, but I enjoy our currant campaign.
Why is the word "outcast" thrown out so casually? It makes it sound like the people with different tastes or opinions are unwelcome.
Growing up and being diagnosed with BPD made me feel "outcast" was a perfectly acceptable word for how I feel. Not as much any more, but my teenage years were spent away from others.
