    I used to have quite alot of friends, but over time i relized that they only wanted some thing from me, rather then wanting to spend time with me, now I only have a few selective friends that I know are true because they are always with me through good and bad times.

    They Only Want Me to Be There For Them..

    I want someone to be my friend, not just use my loyalty to do whatever they want me to do. With one of my "friends", she does not want to do anything I want to do. She gets mad at me if I don't want to do what she wants to do. I got tired of this. I don't talk to her...
