I Dont Have Many Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 263 People

    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'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...

    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 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 don't want many friends.

    I don't treat everyone I meet the exact same way. That's not to say I'm rude but I'm not going to be as open with someone I don't particularly care for as I would for someone who seems to have characteristics I like. I'm pretty choosy with who I form friendships with, and even...
