    I told my friend everything

    that upset me and stressed me out everything she put me though. So I did it. I did what everyone told me on the site and my family and some friends told me to do. I told her this. Well Sarah every time we talked it was hard to talk to you. Just being honest when i say all this...

    I'm Sick And Tired Of Fake Friends

    I think I can speak for a lot of people who've met and befriend fake friends. One too many times, I've been burned by fake friends. Sigh, I'd love to meet some real friends sometime soon.

    I feel like I have no really good friends.

    I see people with their "bffs" all the time and I often feel something is missing in my life. Sure I have a few friends but no one that I feel like I can go to about everything, and the few that are my friends aren't very good ones either. Honestly right now my bf is my best...

    I Have Very Few Friends

    I had friends in high school and college but since then I can't seem to make friends.  I have been hurt many times in social situations (I have social anxiety).  So I have closed down so won't be hurt again.  I know, I know they say you need to keep on trying but after awhile...

    I have a great idea of what friendships I want

    to have, but I have no idea where I'm gonna find them. Just trying to meet a lot of people and I'll let some inside my feces (not speaking literally). I just want to begin again in friendships. I think friendships are a place to support, inspire, listen, share, cherish, and care...

    It's not easy to find a true friend

    who will stood up for you, cry with you when you breakdown, do crazy stuff with you and get into trouble, take care of you when you're sick, confront people that hurt you, who don't backstab you, talk back about you.. It's not easy to find real friends that stay after knowing...

    Throughout the years I have had many friends, but none of them seem to stay around. They always end up stabbing me in the back or ditching me. I'd go into more specific details but there are too many times to count. I have an amazing fiance and a wonderful mother, but I am going...

    and (B). (A) was really close to me and (B) was a potential close friend. The thing now is that I'm feeling the third wheel between them. They have a lot in common and although they always invite me to do things. I feel like they don't care about me anymore, especially (A) that...

    Being an introvert, making friends has been a

    sensitive and grueling task for me. Yet it can be all so fulfilling at times. What bugs me most is that I don't know if my friends feel the same way as I do about them. I find that I'm always the one initiating conversations or asking them how they're day went. Sure they respond...
