I Dont Have Many Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 533 People

    I have two friends. One I met in middle school

    about 12 years ago and the other about 3 or 4 years ago. I love them both but I don't see them much because they're always working and my friend who I've known for a shorter amount of time I have a big crush on her and I think she likes me too so our relationship can get...

    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 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...

    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.

    Replacement Mother

    When i was little, around 11, my life stopped completely. My little brother, whom i love very much, is disabled. Although he can walk and hear and function normally he has something that doctors cant even figure out i guess. He cannot speak but he can say mom and dad and bye...

    I'm a reserved person

    and I only have a few close friends. I sometimes feel that nobody else in the class really cared about my birthday and I'm always being glared at because of my clumsiness and irresponsibility. It makes me feel like that I'm kind of "invisible" to the others...

    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...

    It is astonishing just how much life can change

    in a relatively short space of time. Twelve years ago I would have been about twenty years old and had what felt like a strong group of friends who I saw all of the time, back then I lived each day with the total assurance that these were friends I would have well into old age...

    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...

    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...

    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 have little to no friends.

    I do have two friends, but one of them I hardly talk to. I buy a lot of gum because I think that if I have something that people want other people will at least be nice to me. I did gain some friends because of the gum. They're not "Real" friends though. But I guess its better...

    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...
