I Dont Have Many Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 460 People

    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.

    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...

    It's hard for me to make friends

    and keep friends. Maybe I'm bad at friendships?

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    You know after high school,

    everything changed and a lot of people that I knew, I no longer see anymore. Like we all went our separate ways, except for me and my two best friends, we always keep in touch no matter what. I may not have a lot of friends but I'm still happy that I have my two best friends

    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."

    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.
