I Don't Have Any Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,989 People

    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...

    Why?

    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 have a few in another state,

    but they are always busy, so they never have time to talk to me. When they do talk to me, I get the vibe that they could care less if I never spoke to them again. I'm always the one to text them first, so I feel like they don't care about me anymore :( I am just so lonely. I...

    I don't know why this is happening right now.

    I had a best friend for 7 years & we have been through so much together. I have had a really hard life and I don't trust many people, but I trusted her. She was so excited for me when I told her I was pregnant because she knew how much I loved kids and wanted a baby. But soon...

    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...

    the thoughts in my head. I wish I had friends that I can just call without worry of judgment... but at least here, I can release the pressure building up inside and not go crazy.

    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.

    I don't have any friends now

    because I have outgrown them AND I made poor choices a while ago. I would like to make new friends hopefully near to me but if not, far away would be ok too. Females preferably so I don't have any controversy with my partner.

    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.
