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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,015 People

    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...

    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

    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..

    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...

    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...

    My So Called Friends

    I hate when my "friends" come to me for money because they know I have some since I work at it. When they don't need money, they don't talk to me much. I don't give them much but I guess they always ask since they think I will have a change of heart and give money. One finally...

    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...

    I feel like the people I've surrounded myself

    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...

    Users Are Incredibly Nice

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
