    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    or texted, for so long that it now feels awkward otherwise.

    I try to fit in but no one likes me,

    I get called names just because I don't know some stuff, people don't know what I go through everyday, wish they would be me for a day and see what it feels like, try battling epilepsy, depression and memory loss and you will regret it

    .. 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...

    Yup! I don't and think it's going to be

    that way as long as I'm breathing. I'm not upset nor crying at night wondering why I don't have any. To be honest, I don't think I've ever had any desire to have friends or any type of relationship. I just don't see any point in building a relationship with anyone. Eventually it...

    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...

    Most of the time, it's fine

    that I don't have friends. But not too long ago, I went through a period where I wished I had some. My last girlfriend had been my best friend, and I missed what we had as far as great conversations. I tried to make some online friends, and that didn't work out. After that, I...
