    Online Friends....

    Because I don't have friends, I tend to just go online for hours and hours to pass time and to keep me from negative thinking. Then yesterday this guy/girl just came into my rant/story about how immature people pi s s me off and then he goes and says that I should "grow some...

    Wishing Things Were Different.

    I look back at my childhood and I realized that I never had friends. I always had to pretend to be either "smarter" or "dumber" just to try to fit in. When I was sixteen I decided to stop pretending to be fake and I wondered why no one understood me or liked me. I didn't date...

    How the hell do you make friends?

    The people at my high school are stupid and judgemental. I hate them all, I can never find someone with the same interest as me, and it's getting a bit frustrating. The only time I go out is with my brother and neighbor, but I feel like they're about to have a thing for each...

    I Don't Know What Happened...

    I was a pretty normal kid. I had friends, lots of them. I'm not saying I was popular; I was the fat girl with bad acne and I was the subject of alot of jokes and ridicule. But since high school I lost alot of weight, my skin cleared up, and I would say I'm pretty darn good...

    I Have 3 Best Friends... But Not Here With Me...

    I made 3 best friends since middle school and they love me for who I am. But they all I have and they don't live near me anymore. I just moved into this dorm 2 months ago and I haven't been able to make friends with anybody here. I know it's because I'm really...

    Why doesn't anyone like me?

    They will always say they're my friend, but outside of school or any school-related activity, they act like they don't want to talk to me ever. I feel so alone all of the time. I never get invited to go anywhere and I'm starting to feel more and more like an outcast to these...

    Maybe It's A Self Respect Thing.

    I have had a hard time making friends since I began high school, and it got worse in college.  By the time I graduated college, people (including my parents) made me feel so unlikeable, that I just assumed it was all my fault.  When I meet people now I wait for...

    Is This Who I Really Am?

    Well, I do not have friends. Let me restate that- I only have like 3 people in my life that I can call friends. I guess that's why I'm the most boring person in the world. I don't know if its because of trust issues but I never want to become or befriend someone. I feel like I...

    Feeling Like a Loner...

    I'm curious as to why I am not a social person.  If someone speaks to me, then I will converse but keep it short.  I don't like small talk.  This apparently limits me on having friends because I don't know what to say unless someone really wants to know my opinion...

    I find it odd that people are there actually want to be my friend. I don't know why; when I look at myself, I see someone critical, dull, and lazy. I know nothing about nothing, I don't care about almost anything, and I try to do as little as possible, and yet people...

    End Of High School

    The day I started high school. I was stupid. I was mocked by people. I was lonely and desperate for friends that I buy others meal just to spend time with them, and no one stopped me. That was the one thing I regretted the most and maybe it kind of made me who i am today. I had...

    Then When It All Comes Down To It
