Too good to have friends?

This topic is broadly discussed among the young in China.
You can call it an Internet phenomenon.
You can see as below everywhere on the Internet:
"Too sweet to have friends. Too smart to have friends. Too beautiful to have friends."
Sounds like a bloody curse, isn't it.
Well, my roommates take it as a fashion.
And expressing:"Oh, I don't have friends!" ,which implicates that" I am not that smart, cute or beautiful to be a threat to anyone. I am not outstanding, just like other normal 1.3 billion collectivists in China."
"I don't have friends" becomes a new sick way to show modesty.
