    It's almost 10pm. My sister

    and I have got 5 unlimited rides passes to a little carnival on the boardwalk. She invites her three friends, which is okay for me because I like most of them. She said I could invite one of my friends. Which one of my friends? I invite my best (guy) friend. He was excited...

    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 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...

    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...

    The few that i have changed

    but not in a good way. They are to busy worring about their popularity on facebook, their looks,their money and boyfriend and not to mention clubs , drinking and party. That is definatively not me; i cannot relate with them anymore.

    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...

    I could move to the other side of the world

    and only be missed by 4 people. And the 4th one would probably only miss me because he wouldn't have anyone to burn things with :P

    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."

    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.

    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...

    Making Friends Is So Tiring..
