    Welcome To Reality

    Over a lot of years, I have become more and more isolated. I would say this stems back to my teenage years. Prior to joining the Army in the mid 80's I had a lot of friends. I socialised with a couple of different groups of friends as each group had different interests. One of...

    Trouble Keeping Friendships Long Term.

    I am a very blunt person.  I call things the way that I see them & I get so tired of everyone's whining.  I feel as though all of my friendships are toxic as the relationships mostly revolve around them.  I am also a very good listener.  The problem is...

    Its Better??

    SO who ever said having few friends is bad? It is good to have a few TRUE friends. When you have true friends you should know that they would always be there for you no matter what. Now I have only 3 friends and i am still happy because they always had my back. So intentionally...

    This last summer I ended up being homeless.  Nobody was there to help pick me up, that wasn't really so bad though.  The worst part was that the few friends I did have left, the two that stayed spent the little cash I could work up daily.  To hell with friends...

    My best friend all through elementary recently

    moved away. She wasn't the kind of friend you talk to, though, she was just fun to be around. We had the same sense of silly, non-sensical humor and would spend days giggling nonstop. In elementary school, that was great, but now I'd rather have friends whom I can talk to. We...

    Just a few...and i'm not 100% sure about them.

    I'm 32...at this point in life while I'm making new friends, my core friends should already be established but they aren't. My definition of a friend is Doc Holiday. He got up out of his death bed to go to a gun fight to keep Wyatt Earp from getting killed. You know how you...

    Why I Have Few Friends

    I have always had few friends, but only recently, as I have been exploring life and learning about myself, have I learned why. I have low self esteem. Rather, I HAD low self esteem. It was not easy to get it, but it's here now. I realized that I would shy away from social...

    Another Friday Night Alone.

    So, here we are again. Another Friday Night Alone. Reminds me of high school. I was never popular or cool in high school, but I tried to change that in college. I would speak up, talk to people, get to know others. I know a lot of people, but I don't think they don't...

    Alone on Friday Night

    It is extremely hard for me to find and keep friends. I don't know if it's what I say or what I don't say. Maybe it's how I act. Maybe it's all in my head that people think I am akward and weird. I never have anything to say. I have to think really hard about what to say next. It...

    Don't Know About Friends..

    I don't have any friends.  People ask me all the time to come and hang out.  I always tell em no.  I would rather just chill alone.  I don't know how to make friends anymore because they will always just fade away.  Do we really need friends?

    But it's not because I choose not to make

    friends. I'd just rather have a few close friends who really actually understand me and listen to me. Right now I have two. One is my twin sister. I LOVE her!!!

    It's funny how it happens. I thought I had friends. Yet over the years I found that I was always the one trying to keep in touch. Since then, I've stopped and I haven't heard from anyone in a long time. I can't fault them. They have lives of their own. New worries, new hopes...

    My Friends

    People Not Liking Me Too Much, Or Me Not Liking Them Very Much?

    I've been told that, when I mention that I'm concerned about not making too many friends, perhaps it's me that doesn't want to be friends with those people I think I "should" be friends with. I think this may be true. However, it makes me feel like I may be kind of snooty or...

    Afraid Of Dying Alone

    " />It seems I have always been a loner. Seems kind of a curse. I remember when I was a kid, usually I got along well with older people, as my Grandma, than with kids my own age. At school I was bullied and it made me really sad.As I grew older I learnt to kind of shield myself.I...

    I lost my phone so I lost all my friends

    numbers. I don't really have any friends that want to hang out with me on Facebook. But still like every hour at home I go on my Facebook hoping that someone would have said something to me. Though every time no one has. I just crave for that feeling I get when someone messages...

    I Have Few Friends (My only current friend is my dog)

    I have almost no friends. Although I used to have one or two good friends in the past, once I entered high school I became a total social recluse. I started becoming hateful of people and developed a phobia for interacting with people. I shunned crowded places and social...
