Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,763 People

    Ever wondered what it's like to have no friends?

    It is very lonely and crushing. You begin to obsess about the fact that you have no friends and wonder why. You turn your harshest critical eye inward and self-examine and magnify all flaws, searching for a possible answer. Since you obsess about it so much, you begin to feel...

    Things improved for a while

    since I got a part time job at the YMCA. But it's been about 3 weeks now and the novelty is wearing off. I still have nearly no friends who regularly contact me, and to top it off I realized that ever since 4th grade my life has been marked by at least one tragedy a year...

    Will Things Ever Change?

    When I look in the mirror I see a beautiful, attractive young woman that possesses the qualities that most men say that they want, but yet I'm single. Most of my experiences with men have been dysfunctional, from the time I was fourteen years old. I have given in relationships...

    I am starting to give up on life.

    Each day I grow emotionally weaker and weaker. Every crush that I have ever has ended up in failure which makes me think that I'm a failure. I have no hope in myself anymore. Whenever I buildup confidence to talk to a girl that I like, it just gets shot right back down because I...

    I am a 32 year old woman.

    I have been single for 7 years. I have only had one "serious" boyfriend and since then all I have experienced is heartbreak. Disastrous dates, flings, no real connection with any one. I live in a huge city where I technically should be able to find someone. I get so depressed...

    I was a fool for thinking that

    This doesn't apply to me much anymore. It's hard to be lonely with so many people to chat with on here now. =p But yes... 99% of my depression in the past was due to isolation and loneliness. It was due to my social anxiety, or the end result of it. I didn't have any friends...

    People on FB posting

    that they are bored. Everyone knows that when I am not at work I am alone. I message them and get one word answers. Guess I am too boring to talk to. I wish I knew how to be interesting. Maybe then I would have a friend...or something.

    I'm not quite sure how it happened,

    how I became a loner. During my younger years I was always an extroverted person. You know, the bubbly, random type that didn't care about what others thought of her. People naturally gravitated towards me and I to them. However, I'm in my senior year of school and I've come to...

    Some birds are not meant to be caged,

    that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place...

    It just makes me want to fall a sleep forever.

    I didn't think it would come to this point, and how people in the past just made up things. I dont know whats wrong anymore. I thought I could just settle for the loneliness, but its the other way around. Nothing is going planned.

    Extremely depressed. Lonely.

    No love. No sex. No emotions. Feeling hopeless, sad, depressed, miserable. Just want to die.

    What I Hate Most About It

    What I hate most about it is that if I ask for help, if I let someone find out, then they'll feel pressured or guilt tripped into spending time with me. I don't want to make anyone to feel like that. I really don't want to pressure anyone into keeping me company, I just want...

    Thinking you've made a connection with someone
