    But Seriously

    Where does one find friends? How does one nurture friendship? My "friends," typically, are those that I work with wherever I'm currently working. Right now that means I have four friends. We laugh, joke, talk, and argue when we're working together, but, for the most...

    Never Have

    I've never really had that many friends. Maybe two close friends. Thats it. All others are simply aquantinces... and they turn out to not like me, anyway.... but I'm happy with the few friends I have... and its cheaper when we hang out! =]

    Dinner For One

    Today was my day off. Like most days off before it, I spent this one alone. I woke, alone; I showered, alone; I ate breakfast at 2pm, alone; I left the house to take a stool sample to the lab, alone. There are times that I wish I had lots of friends, but more than anything I...

    Where Are You Suppose To Start?

    Life seems so cruel sometimes. When your alone and have no one to talk to and ask advice, who are you suppose to talk to? No one ever wants to hear what's wrong with you. People don't want to associate with someone who has problems. Yet when your alone and don't know what to do...

    Real Ones

    Are hard to come by.  Offline, I have maybe 3--MAYBE 4--friends I can truly depend on and have be there for me when I need them and vice versa.  I'd do anything for them and do anything to protect them.  Online, here for example, I've made about the same...

    I Still Call Them Friends...not Sure Why

    I don't have many friends where I live. Perhaps one or two. They are not close friends though. We do something together once in a while. I have friends that live far away from me. Most of them I have known since I was a kid. We do not talk often. Maybe once or twice a year...

    I don't have many friends in real life. I don't go anywhere or do anything. I do however have friends online. I know that sounds weird and pathetic but its true, I have more online friends then I do in real life. My online friends have become closer to me than my real life...

    Never Really Have

    I don't think I've ever had more than two or three close friends at a time. Every time I made a new best friend, they wound up moving away and I'd have to make a new friend. Since I've graduated high school, I've only talked to maybe two of those old friends and never very often...

    A Few Good Friends

    I know lots of people...but there are very few people that know me well - and there are very few that i know well. I like deep connections with people - superficial contact doesn't count as friendship in my book. So i have a few people that i know intimately - although if i am...

    Meeting With Friends Exhausts Me

    I used to be very social and outgoing. I still believe it's more of the real me than the me that I have become over the years. Every time I meet people and interact with them, I'm funny and talkative. I laugh, I have a good time, I go home and could fall asleep immediately due to...

    Confused

    I really don't know why I don't have many friends. I've been told that I am a friendly and funny person, but I still don't have many. Part of it may be because I am very shy and am afraid to talk to people I do not know. I guess I expect people to come to me, instead of vice...

    Semi-intentional Outcast

    Sometimes I wonder if maybe I just don't like people very much. I think I should hang out with people, because that's what people do. But I find I start dreading it as soon as it gets close to events or plans and half the time I spend thinking about what I can say to get out of...

    I'm Not Really Sure Why

    I have always had at least one friend but never many at one time. I'm not sure why that is. I used to think that it was because I found idle talk uninteresting but I enjoy it when I am at family functions. I can interact with friends of family and distant family as well as with...

    for the visually impaired. But a lot of students also have other problems. So it's sort of impossible to have a proper conversation with them. I only have 3 friends. I get quite lonely sometimes :)

    Some times I need someone to remind me to stay

    on track, otherwise I tend to derail. What happens when I have no one, when no one is there for you, how do I pick myself up and carry on. When will I find a friend that will be there for me.
