    Okay

    I don't have any friends and prefer it that way.  Sure I know people but as for sharing my life with them, its just not my thing.  Some people are just not into the whole Sex and the City, gushing over cosmos sort of friendships.  Give me a good book, and a glass of wine any...

    Then When It All Comes Down To It

    I find it difficult to make friends in general. I could say my bf is my only friend, which is sad and makes me think that he may think something is wrong with me. I think this because what would you think of a female or even a guy who had no friends at all...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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 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...
