I Dont Need Tons Of Friends, Just A Few Who Really Care

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 915 People

    I crave intellectual stimulation,

    a good laugh to expand my dwindling years, and an open ear to receive and honestly respond to my thoughts. That's all I want. No sex. No love. Just a good friend, and some wonderful conversations.

    I just got rid of a whole lot of "friends" in

    the last year. Some I've been " friends" with for nearly 36 years. It seems friendship is as rare as diamonds.

    It's not going to matter how many friends you

    have if they're fake. They won't be there when you really need them.

    But I'm not good at making friends.

    Like I have two friends I can count on and my brother. Every one else disappoints me in the end. Like it sucks, it really sucks because I'm always ready to sacrifice myself and no one appreciates anything.

    I forced myself into seclusion my first 2 years

    of high school, and this past year was spent trying to fit into a group I didn't belong, for the sake of someone else. Who just graduated. The last two weeks of school were spent trying to rekindle relations with other classmates. Of my various options, I have little in common...

    So I have moved around quite a bit

    and during my high school year I went to four high schools in four years . I never really had a chance to make any life friends. Lately it's just been me and my boyfriend and while he is great it's got me down knowing that I don't have a circle of friends or even a friend that...

    I've chosen to live in a different reality.

    I didn't have anything myself or plans, moreover I have No one. I wish I had someone to love and care about me. Now I'm giving up. I don't have the motivation to actually do the things I set out to do, life doesn't work as much as I imagine it does. I messed up my life, and...

    I just need a true friend.

    Someone who wouldn't leave me behind. Someone I can always depend on. Someone who is always there for me.

    Curious.

    Why is it so hard to find just a few that actually really care & easy to find ones that are just around? I want a friend that I actually find interesting & can share things with. I never feel that the friends I have will take the things I have to say seriously. I always feel that...

    The only ones who do care seem to be dropping

    like flies lately and I am returning to a place of isolation that I swore never to enter into again. Not really sure what to do about it.

    I've lost all of my best friends,

    I'm moving to someplace I've only ever visited, and I'm having to start all over again. I have nobody. True, I do have some friends on EP, but none of them seem to genuinely understand what I'm going through and what I've been through. I don't need a ton of friends, just a few...
