    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 a mom and spouse is in the military

    so we've moved a lot. Making friends with other moms is difficult. It's still cliquey and many are very pretentious--I'm not. I'm from the mid west where people are generally friendly but here in D.C. Other moms are real snobs. Why is it so hard to make a good friend when you're...

    I'm looking for a friend.

    I can talk to, have come with me in the dressing room and help me pick out clothes and etc. I want a friend I can cry on, talk about anything with, I do the same for him. We would have each other back when it comes to 100% cases. I want a true friend seriously.

    Friendless

    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...

    I don't have many friends

    but the ones that I do are either hard to reach or just fake friends. I have this one guy friend who I thought was my 'bro' but recently he started showing a lot of disrespect towards me. He keeps on saying "******" when he knows I'm gay and that word is hurtful and just laughs...

    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 need some friends I can get close to (not in

    a gross way, just like sharing my thoughts, inside jokes...). I feel so alone. I don't have people around my age to talk to, a few females and a male or two... I love telling riddles and jokes!

    Something I Have Never Had.

    Yes, I have friends, but I am more of a friend to them then they are to me. I have a habit of making friends with selfish people, who only care about themselves and who aren't compassionate to my problems or my needs. I think the reason I attract these types of people because I'm...

    so hard for me to make friends where I am from. I have no problem connecting with people away from home. I have been putting my children in activities hoping that I can connect with other parents, but I feel like I am in high school again. No thanks.

    My Thoughts On "true Friendship"

    I've learned a lot throughout my struggles with friendship. At the beginning I thought true friends don't exist because so often we trust our friends only to see them leave us, and so OFTEN friends come and go for very selfish reasons - I believe there's hope. I had a close...

    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...

    Friendship is a little more trust,

    a little less try, a little more laugh, a little less cry, a little more u a little less I, Friendship is simply u and I in this beautiful world.

    or far away, who will care about me and check up on me. I'm an extremely lonely person, and all of my friends have since moved on. Is there anybody who would like to get to know me, maybe stay up late talking about life? I sure would like that.

    All the friends I've had either wanted something from me or expected something different from me. I need a friend that doesn't want anything out of me except to be friends. One that cares if I'm hurting or depressed. Please Help. 😪
