    Not Much Friends.

    I had lots of friends till I was 16 in 10th grade. No one really talked to me anymore cause I was pregnant the only time they did was when they wanted to feel the baby kick. They called me lots of names that hurt me. I had my boyfriend by my side (: but he was a senior. I was...

    And I don't understand

    why my partners see this aspect of my life as a weakness and choose to point it out - along with their opinion as to why - when having an argument. It doesn't hurt me. I'll keep my 5 friends who are my "chosen family," and they can keep their 600 Facebook "friends."

    I Am Just Not a Good Friend...

    I like people. I enjoy their company. Unfortunately, I don't spend much time thinking about them when they are not around. I have one true friend and thats my wife. I would love to have another friend, but even when I try it doesn't happen. Most people are too wrapped up...

    You think you don't have friends

    but in reality, the time you're alone is the time you're supposed to build and learn about yourself.

    I do have friends from different groups of

    friends. But, there's only a few people I trust with all my heart and share every thing. They're the sisters and the brothers I never had. Some people (rare) never really understand you and instead of helping you, they turn against you. I've never understood this concept. I am...

    Ever since highschool I've had very little

    Friends. I had friends but once we graduated I realized they weren't the kind of friends I needed. They weren't going anywhere in life And I was. Now I feel alone sometimes. I have some work friends but I wish I had someone to share things with and to talk to all the time.

    Making Friends Is So Tiring..

    I have never been popular or had many friends. I have always had one friend that I was really closed to but it seems that i have always been the one that caters and cares more about the friendship. My bestfriends always end up moving on to I guess more interesting people? I don't...

    From a young age, I've always thought of anyone

    who listens to me as friends. I was a really lonely child, and up until about my teens, I was a very unpopular, shy, and ugly child. As I grew older, I realised that good friends are hard to come by. The only real best friend I have is my boyfriend. I suppose friends are rare...

    I'm a reserved person

    No. Used to. But then girlfriends DISAPROVE,

    or you do dumb things like have kids,get super busy at work and before you know it they're gone. I've been up here two years now. Other than my two next door neighbours. I still don't know anyone. At least not well enough to call them friend.
