    Social Loner

    I'm fine at making friends, but I don't keep them. Simply drift apart. Was known in school as a bit of a mad scientist, but didn't really get to know anyone better than first name and...that was pretty much it.

    Being "the Odd One"

    Hmm.. yeah I can definetely relate to that... Well I'm not complaining, but it wouldn't hurt to have someone to talk to about something interesting. The issue I'm facing is waiting for someone to start a nice conversation with meaning and purpose... Most people only talk...

    I don't know why I don't have close friends.

    I'm not an extrovert but I've been able to lost most of my shyness in the few past years, and sometimes I think I have plenty of friends, but I don't really feel like I could trust most of them with my life, nor I want to. The worst part is that I'm a close friend to a lot of...

    How Can I Go From Having "friends" And Being Alone To Having A Real Group Of Friends?

    I'm a sweet, kind, smart, educated cute girl. I'm not a bad person and I'm not mean. So why is it that everyone around me has made groups of friends and make plans together and I haven't? Why is my self esteem so utterly crushed right now? Throughout my life I had to make...

    They All Leave

    1 died. she was my favorite, too. 1 was fake. either that, or i imagined that we were in it together. the rest moved away and never put in any effort to keeping in touch. Ironically though, I am a ton of people's best/close friends.

    Well Known

    Even though I know a lot of people at school I can't really call anyone a close friend. I've hung out around 4 or 5 times, and did have one sleep over (which was a blast), but they don't really know me. I can't really tell them how I feel, and sometimes I feel like it's better...

    I Would Like Close Friends.

    Moving Home

    While I have many peers I have no close friends, moving home has brought me to the realisation of just how undeveloped my social skills are. I lack the confidence to meet new people and due to circumstance have become accepting of my self imposed isolation from the...
