I Don't Have Any Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,015 People

    I know that I'm partly,

    if not wholly, to blame for not doing my part to keep in touch (they never really tried either) but by the end of school I was so damned closed off from everyone that it never occurred to me what would happen. So 10 years later and I don't have any friends. I look at my bf with...

    I get attached to people far too easily,

    Then it truly freakin' hurts when I finally realise that I mean nothing to them.

    My husband just left me in the house by myself.

    ..again. I don't care that he hangs out with his friends but he makes the plans early in the day and won't tell me until a hour before he is set to leave. It would just be nice to know exactly when he makes them so at least I can try to find something rondo than sit in front of...

    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...

    & that's the bottom line,

    I can't complain anymore, I treat people with kindness & help, & at the end they simply give no F...s about good people, all they want is attractive people, liars, & rude people,

    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...

    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...

    I Have No Real Friends

    My name is Jess, and I don't really have freinds. All my life I've been a disposable follower. Every "friendship" I've ever had ends up the same way no one tells me what's going on they just never talk to me again. It is like I don't belong anywhere. I'm not exactly a social...

    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 feel like I don't really have friends,

    just acquaintances. It doesn't really bother me though. I basically just keep them around to keep updated in the social world, and music updates. Having friends was fun, to say the least, but never felt real.

    I actually prefer it this way.

    Sure, it's nice to have a friend, but why trust someone who can stab you in the back at anytime? I prefer to be alone. No one can stab you in the back, yell at you, tell you how to live your life, tell whether or not you actually did something, etc. It's just an easier...

    I don't know if this is really true.

    It is a bit absolute. Depending on how I feel and what I need, ....friendship is a word that can have many meanings. Like the untrue story that Eskimos have many words for snow. They don't. That isn't true. However introverts and extroverts define friendship differently...
