    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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 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.

    I drew the line when a "friend" of mine called

    me at 3 am because he had a long drive and wanted someone to talk to. REALLY?! You haven't called in weeks and the last time you did call it was to ask for another favor. I am not your ATM, babysitter, taxi or mover and my husband is not your personal IT guy. When I told him...

    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...

    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..

    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.

    Users Are Incredibly Nice

    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...
