    I Might As Well Just Talk To A Mirror!

    It HAS to be one of the most annoying things anybody can experience. I seem to be a magnet for one-sided friendships and hope it won't be the same here on Experience Project. I have some girlfriends, but we rarely seem to be on the same page. I wonder sometimes if other girls...

    It gets frustrating when you're the one putting

    all of the effort into a friendship but they are the one who backstabs you at the end, just because you act really obnoxious. What can I do? Nobody is perfect.. I hope they understand me.
