I Hate When People Only Talk To Me When They Need Something

    Especially when you need something

    or someone to help you and your showing it but all they care is about themselves and the pain they are going... But I guess I'm that type of person who would bottle up my own feelings for the sake of my family and friends, but still I'm not a container of sustainable energy who...

    A Call Away, A Call You Say

    I know that in some way, shape and or form Im wanted. If it were for other reasons then Im sure this whole "lonelyness" thing would clear up, like someone wiping the smudge off of dirty glasses. At least you call when you need something..at least there is that. If I had to make a...

    Yes I've had few friends

    and they actually came to my house out of nowhere after few years and blabber stories and expect me to help them out... Guess what I'm not gonna fall for that ever... Gladly I've send them away - they didn't even started the convo's with "hi how are you?" That's low

    Happened to me today.

    My friend sends me a message about how she needs me to print something for her for registration and that she'll get it when she comes over to swim. She literally told me to print something for her and invited herself over to swim on Saturday. Too bad I'm busy Saturday and I...

    And Now That I'm No Longer Useful To People...

    ...Suddenly I've lost every last person I could vaguely have called a friend in the real world. One thing I've learned. being nice and being there for people invariably means you'll get walked all over. Plus if it's OK for "life" to be a *****, then I guess it's OK for me too...

    The Worst!!

    The worst is when someone sort of talks to you when it's convenient, and then when they get a boyfriend/girlfriend, they forget you ever existed. Then eventually, when bf/gf dumps them, they suddenly blow your phone up and want you to be consummately there for them, calling you...

    My assessment of your request.

    .. maybe spend a little more time asking about how I'm doing, what's going on with my life, etc. before getting to the point of you initiating contact - whether it is possible to use my staff benefits to access the recreational club swimming pool for free. Your fakeness grade: D...

    Users Are Incredibly Nice

    OMG these people are absolutely amazing when they require something from you. They will drop in a few compliments to ease you up before they go for it. It is heartbreaking when you finally realise that you have a user in your circle of friends but it is better than not knowing at...

    Happens all the time.

    I'm constantly there for people when they need me. I'm a great friend and listen to them repeat themselves over and over and never complain. But when I need them they avoid me and just don't care.

    People who talk to me only

    when they need to talk to someone. I'm all for listening to my friends vent but not ONLY for that. I'm not a therapist, nor do I plan on being a therapist. If you're only keeping me around for that reason then don't bother keeping me around. I know and I get it. People have...

    The thing is, I'll never resist talking to

    someone if they need help (as long as they're not a danger to me). It just hurts how they're usually all gone whenever they don't need help anymore. I know that's all I'm worth, though. There's only one person who I fully trust. She's a blessing in my life. I still feel stupid...

    but I am a great choice. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not, because I'm good at being me. I might not be proud of some of the things I've done in the past, but I'm proud of who I am today. I may not be perfect, but I don't need to be. I am the way God made me. Take me as I...

    I hate people who pretend to be nice

    and friendly only when they need something from me. I was naive before but now I know how to say NO. I am pretty blunt about it now and it hurts their stupid ego but that's what they're going to get for trying to manipulate me.

    with only want to interact with me when they need something, be it an outlet for venting, or some favor, or money. I don't think they even realize they're doing it, but when I scroll back through our messaging conversations or think back on verbal conversations we've had, I can...

    Oh it's awful. Like if you're never going to

    talk to me except for a few times to ask for something why bother? Like especially if they have tons of other friends and they talk to them all the time and stuff, but they only come to you when they need something. It's ridiculous. It's like, ask your actual friends, don't come...

    Seriously the hardest thing to just try

    and cut these selfish people from my life. Then I'm left friendless, and in a small town is it so awkward to try and make new friends as a 21 year old.. As a kid you just walk up to someone and say, "hey I like goldfish too! lets be bffs!" Wtf adulthood..

    I despise these individuals.

    I have many "friends" but as time passes there are these that pop up from time to time. I guess you can say that I'm an approachable person but it would be nice for people just to come up me to just chat or have some type of activity together. I do have friends that do...
