I Am Lonely and Need Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 214 People

    Recently I've been feeling very alone.

    . Sometimes i just wish I had someone to talk to.. I have friends but I feel very distant from them. I love going out and partying but I feel like that's all me and my friends do, feeling a lack of social interaction otherwise.

    Real-Friends

    They say as you grow older you realize who your true friends are because they stick around. Well I guess i didn't have any because once I got married, had babies, and moved away from my hometown they all lost interest in keeping in-touch. I even had gotten back in touch with one...

    Life Is As Bad As It Gets

    I am just tired. I just realised by wanting to hang on to one guy, my roommate, my best friend, I have given up a lot of people and friends along the way. When we get into an argument, I have no one to really talk to. No one wants to hear my sob stories again. He got mad at me...

    Hey You....

    I am lonely and need friends... That seems like a good starting sentence.I am by no means a social butterfly. I have always had a group of friends I could text or call any time, and hung out with regularly. But now? None. I am a college student, surrounded by people. But yet I...

    I want friends. White girl friends.

    They so cool but they seem not to like black girls for some reason. Some do some don't. I always wanted to be apart of a white girl group with black chicks in it like me.

    Lack Of Genuine Friends

    I guess I just need to find people that have an honest intention of befriending me. Most of the people I'm acquainted with are nice to my face but then go and share with others what I have confided in them with. It hurts to know that I haven't got one true friend.
