    Since I have moved to Portland 10 months ago,

    I haven't made any friends. I find most of the people here boring and superficial. I find people here in the Pacific Northwest very provincial. I am not superficial enough to make any friends. Moreover, my East Coast NYC intensity is too much for most people out here. I've never...

    I Don't Have Any Friends.. But I Think I Know Why And That Gives Me Hope.

    I'm 32 year old male and I've found myself having drifted away from the people I was close to. The few that remain I can only spend so much time with before we have nothing left to say. And some friends that I should probably stop associating with. When I'm alone, it hits me...

    I thought I did. Now I realize I don't have any

    friends. Just feel kinda there right now. I guess the pressure's off me. I wish it didn't have to be this way, but I guess I wasn't meant to have anyone.

    I don't understand why it is so hard for me to make friends. I am very social and think I'm really clever and nice. I have a huge range of interests and think I'm the farthest possible thing from boring. I compliment strangers, smile big, listen intently to acquaintences, try to...

    I Don'T Have Friends Anymore
