    People Are Just Scum

    You can't really trust anyone. People are vicious and nasty. They will smell weakness and exploit it mercilessly. I was bullied and beaten through the entirety of elementary and high school. I thought thinks get better in college. They don't. No one beats or bullies you...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
