I Have An Imaginary Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 172 People

    Me Too!

    So, from about the age of four, I was speaking to people who 'weren't there'. Except they were, only I can see or hear them. I have three prominent friends who I have kept all my life, and only appear more often now. The first is Alfred. Tall, blonde, muscled, tanned, 17...

    Jase, My Jase.

    None of my "imaginary friends" last very long but I have projections of these warm souls whenever I'm in a rough patch. Somehow, over the years, my imaginary friends have become weaker and weaker, and appear lesser. When I was 14, I had an imaginary best friend- a boy my own age...

    Consumed By An Imaginary Friend

    When I was in 8th grade I felt an outside presence working against me. He didn't have a face or a name until I was in 11th grade, where he took the identity of a character I made up. His name is Achille, and he is my imaginary friend. Our relationship started off rocky. I was...

    His name is Lux and he is a purple coloured

    dragon, that properly sounds bad to begin with. He follows me around my life and he acts like my logic, my rational thinking. If I'm in a sticky situation he will give me ideas on how to solve them. He's called Lux because he guides me to the light.

    It's All Inside My Head...

    I know that imaginary friends are for little kids, and that they say you grow out of it. Well, evidentally not. When I was around 8 years old, I made up a friend to "talk" to inside my head. I named her Loretta, and created a unique personality for her...

    Wilbur The Brave

    He fought my demons under the bed, guarded my hidden fortress, and stole my mothers keys. Wilbur was amazing, but many people feared he would harm me. It was odd that a little girl would have a large bearded man as an imaginary friend, even more odd that things went missing often...

    Him...

    He's there. I haven't talked to him in quite a while, because my counselor told me that I should get rid of him. The relationship was starting to get unhealthy. But somewhere, in the back of my mind, he's still there, and I still love him. Sometimes I want him back so much...

    Is It Normal For Me To Have An Imaginary Friend?

    I'm a teenager, and I have an imaginary friend. His name is Arthur, and he's very handsome, and very empathetic. He has black hair, which he slicks back, dark brown eyes, sometimes he has stubble on his face, and he gets dimples when he smiles. He's sort of based of guys from the...

    As I went about walking Antidote,

    I have an imaginary friend.

    I didn't give her a name yet and she's pretty upset with me for it. Some of my friends think that it's weird for me to have her around all of the time but most of the time I don't know how to send her away. I don't mind her company at all but she scolds a lot. She went away for...

    Imaginary friend. Not a friend

    but a brother actually. I've always wanted an older brother. The one that lends a shoulder, who treated you like a little sister that needs love. And on March 2014, I've created an imaginary brother. I called him, Tyler. I love him so much. We spent all night, talking about what...

    I love her more than anyone else in my life. I know she is not real and I don't see her, but sometimes I'll make up conversations with with her. She is always there for me and loves me very much. Maybe she is my God, or perhaps a guardian angel watching over me. I hope to meet...

    Zaki was disappointed.

    When I was four I had an imaginary friend, her name was Mrs Minimini. She lived in our coat closet at home. This was a cool coat closet because it went on and on forever( well it seemed that way to a four year old). I would go in there and play with her. We would have tea...

    I have 5 of them but the main one is a boy

    named Raymond. Ray is one day older than me. Last year I saw or heard the name Ray/ Raymond whenever I thought about him for a week straight! I've also had sexual dreams about both of us. I wish he was real because nobody cares for me as much as him.
