I Don't Have Any Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,131 People

    So i seriously never had a friend

    or a best buddy. Really sad tbh. The "friends" i had, are more into smoking, xtc a.k.a. drugs than hanging out with me. I met last summer lots of new people. But they don't care about me. Also they're ignoring me. I asked them today if some people wanted to skate tomorrow. I...

    I had friends before.

    In fact, I was popular at my school, but I mainly kept to one group. That one group, however, weren't really my friends. I trusted them with my secrets, told them my stories of abuse, and I even told them a bit about my past addiction to drugs. After they realized that I was no...

    I don't have any friends

    but I don't want any friends because I fear getting close to people because i think they will just eventually walk out of my life no matter how close we were

    Never experienced the joy of having friends.

    The people i knew, all ******* leave me for drugs and stuff. I guess Smoking **** and xtc is more important than me.

    I Don'T Have Friends Anymore

    I guess I've always known this, but it was really only during junior and senior year of high school where I fully realized that I didn't have any real friends. I was always “popular” because I was nice and friends with everyone at school. Always tried to get to know people...

    And I never really seek them out.

    The only relationship I've ever really put any value into has been one with a girlfriend. But right now I have nothing because while I was in a relationship I didn't bother keeping with friends, my world revolved around her.

    Feeling So Alone.

    I am feeling particularly lonely tonight. You get those days where you are used to it and you can handle it, but then, you get those days where you feel it more then usual and you just need someone else to understand how it feels to have no one. It's Saturday night, it doesn't...

    Had to write this after reading a question,

    because it seems many people on EP say they don't have friends. Understandable, believable as we are on here and being social. Some of us being more honest than we would in our physical world. I just mostly wonder though when people say this if it is because they just don’t...

    But I know it's partially my fault.

    I chose to enroll in home school, and I am too socially awkward to ever soak to anyone I don't know. I have surrounded my whole world around my girlfriend, and now that's she's gone, I feel more alone than ever.

    Not Sure How To Make Friends Anymore

    I'm 36 and I have no friends. There was a time that I had what I thought were friends, but as it turns out I was just a friend of convenience. That was 5 years ago, and it felt awful to have been treated that way for so long. I always felt like I was a good, fun, caring, and even...

    I've never been the type to have a lot of

    friends, never more than 2 or 3, but now I have none. The only person who I would actually consider a friend is out of the country until school starts, and I know she doesn't consider me a good friend like I consider her. Since I graduated, I don't talk to or hang out with...

    Friendship is also supposed to be a phase of

    growing outside of our character. As importart as it may be to rely on the self, there's no guide to what goes further our comprehension. I haven't got through understanding so well what life is about, most probably because nobody really took my side in my quest for getting...

    Not Even One.

    Honestly, I prefer it this way. It isn't exactly that I'm alone. I have a fantastic family, and a loving boyfriend. But I've never felt like I needed a friend, since Asher died. No one could replace him. No one could measure up to a friendship like that one. So I guess I don't...
