    I have some friends,

    but I don't have many that I normally hang out with. I only have two friends that I regularly talk to at my school and hope to make new friends. :)

    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...

    I have four good friends

    but other than that I don't really know a lot of people being that I'm in the middle of no where and there is no school.

    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..

    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'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...

    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.

    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."

    Not Much Friends.

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
