    Not a single one. My only life is my mother

    and stepfather. I am in my twenties and don't have any mates. Growing up I had people I talked to casually, but no 'friends'. I mostly played by myself. When I got older I had two girls I on/off hung out with and eventually stuck to one of those girls as the other was bossy...

    Life is getting me down.

    I know I shouldn't complain and that I'm very lucky in a lot of ways but working and studying is taking up all my time. It upsets me that I don't have time or energy to put into friendships or a relationship :( Just feeling very lonely recently...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
