    Where Are You?

    Just feeling a little lonely. I feel like no one wants anything with me. I am in school, but making no connection with anyone. I wish I had someone to talk to .  I just got deleted by someone on this website, I don't know why. I guess it doesn't matter, because I am not going to...

    Acquaintances But No Friends

    I have no real, true friends. Only acquaintances. I used to have close friends but after high school those relationships slowly dissolved. My close friends have moved away and I was the one left behind. I still talk to them every now and then but it's different now. I'm a shy...

    Old Friends Move On, And I'm Still Stuck.

    So I have recently graduated high school last May, and I was very unsure about what going off to college would be like. During the summer I can say that I had a good time before starting school again, and even though I've never had many friends and was concerned about being...

    Acquaintances Never Turn To Friends

    I have always had different sets of friends but they have never stayed...its like situational friends...work, school, etc but never a true friend. Someone I could call on if I ever needed anything. No one who has lasted past the actual "situation". I spend so much time talking...

    Yes, I have been friendless

    for most of my life. I don't have anyone to share my inner thoughts or feelings. When I was a teenager I use to pretend to be someone else because no one ever liked the real me. When I was in my twenties I realized that I should not have to pretend to be someone else for the...

    Always Alone

    I've always been a loner.  I'm 44 now, and sooooo tired of living this way, but I don't know how to change.  I've read all the books on small talk, I've been to therapy, but I just don't know how to make and keep friends. I don't look forward to the weekends, because I am...

    Everyone at my school ignores me

    because I am someone who is different. People say they are my friends but that's not true and I know that's the truth.

    People are rude, selfish and in denial

    I have had no friends for most of my life. I share many of the feelings of depression and bitterness, which are unhealthy. It's been a very lonely life, and it's very difficult to make friends. What infuriates me is that, unlike others, I try very hard to make friends. I...

    I'm not really sure how it happened.

    One day I just realized that I don't have friends. Maybe it's my fault-I've always been shy and introverted, preferring drinking alone and listening to music or watching anime to actually going out with people. But I always had at least one person I could call or hang out with...

    I'm Tired Of Trying

    I'm tired of the silence. I'm tired of wondering what's wrong with me. I'm ashamed that I'm wallowing in self pity, but I am lonely. My "freinds" give me excuses, or even worse, silence, when I try to include them in my life. If it wasn't for my boyfriend, or my job, I think I...

    I'm no good with words, so let's hope this comes out alright... I've always been a shy person. In fact, I have social phobia. I like to think I'm a pretty nice person. Easy going, like to joke around, I try not to judge others, I don't think I'm ugly or anything (not that that...

    Friendlessness: Revisited, Critiqued, & Philosophied
