    I don't have a lot of friends ,

    just a few close ones but even they don't know me fully...I've never ever had a bff nor do I ever think I will...the close friends I have are too busy to spend time with me or put an effort into doing stuff that I like, but I on the other hand know what it feels like to feel...

    Are Other People Like Me?

    I have always been the different kid. I am not sure why. Every since high school, i would generally only have 1 good friend, and the rest (my "group") were more or less acquaintances... in their eyes. One of the girls i hung out with, a couple of years down the track told me she...

    What Is Wrong With Me?

    A few years ago I lost my best friend in an accident. She lived in the East coast, but we always managed to contact each other.  I have never really had any friends who I can call and ask to go out and do something.  I do have a sister and two adult daughters who tell me that...

    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 Don't Have Any Real Friends

    Ever since I moved to another state, about 8 years ago, I haven't made any real friends. Even though I have met some nice people during high school and college, I have always felt like I didn't belong. I see everyone around me moving on with their lives, meeting new people and...

    I have been friendless for.

    .. more less 8 years? I don't mind being alone. Of course every now and then I get lonely but it passes. There are people whom I speak to but we are not friends. Then again how does a person count as a friend? Do they talk to you regularly? Or do they just have the same hobbys...

    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...

    Meh.

    When I got pregnant, I kind of dropped everyone I was friends with because I matured soo fast and I now realize how childish and immature they are. Since my baby passed away, I feel like I need a friend to hang out with but I have none now. I need to go out and meet new people...

    That is correct for me through

    and through I used to have two friends they moved I made one or two friends but we grew apart because they thought I was "weird" and "secretive" and that is the story of my friendships. I am completely alone

    I don't have friends.

    not because no one likes me tho. Its more because I don't see people as friends. More to be a tool to make myself better. I judge people bye how well i know then and how much i trust them. there is no one i completely trust. Not even my family.

    Not in the true definition.

    The kind of person who is there for you win, lose or draw, rain or shine etc. The people I occasionally fraternise with are at best, glorified acquiescences, even those I've known for years, but with those people in particular, I can't call them friends these days because when...

    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...

    I Think I Really Don't Have Friends

    I never had much friends, always been the shy kid when I was younger. I have like 2 or 3 friends or such, but we barely talk now. I just talk with 1. One of them asks me if i go out with friends. I say I haven't, just with my boyfriend sometimes. She gets worried and kind of...

    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...

    Then When It All Comes Down To It

    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...
