I Dont Have Many Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 807 People

    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...

    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.

    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.

    friends cause I would meet someone really nice but then they would move away ( that happened to me like 5 times ) Then I've always had one main friend that lives across the road from me. I can't breathe with her around. Recently one of my old friends that moved away got in...

    Friendship wise, 9th grade was a good year

    for me. I had my two best friends and we were all part of a bigger friend group. I'm still best friends with one of them but the other betrayed her and I in 10th grade. Now that I'm out of high school, I have begun to realize I don't have many. I have my best friend who recently...

    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.

    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...

    They either have kids,

    partners, 60 hour job or all three. . . it's hard just to find someone who just wants to hang out. I want someone who doesn't mind my family.

    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'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...

    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.
