I Have Friends But I'm Lonely

    My friends are amazing,

    but can't feel my loss. I dated a woman, briefly, who was in my circle of friends and it didn't work out (her decision). Over the next two years, we became incredibly close. When I found out my father was terminally ill, I asked her to stay with me. She agreed, then was...

    I feel the more friends I make,

    the lonelier I am. I don't understand why. I mean I feel like it's because I'm single, but I'd rather have friends and no partner than the other way around. And the more girls I get interested in, the lonelier I feel too. Because I feel like I want to be with them, but nothing...

    They all live in their college dorms,

    always hanging with their college friends and the friends I got online never here. I guess this is what you'd call being lonely right?

    I'm sorry but it's true.

    I feel like I'm nothing to them. I'm starting to give up on everything and I just don't know what to do anymore.

    I have no idea what is wrong with me.

    . I feel so desperate for people and friends.. It's like if I don't make friends with someone right away, they hate me, I'm a bad person etc. and I take every attempt to make friends that's failed as a massive thing. Thing is, they probs never even know I'm trying, I'm so shy...

    We laugh everyday, just like the typical group

    of friends. But as soon as they're all gone within my eyesight, I go back to feeling numb again. What's wrong with me?

    Friends. Those companions you speak of are only

    friends during those fun, yet unimportant times. When painful times come, they wonโ€™t be your ally.

    I have a friend who moved to Arizona a couple

    years ago and I don't think she even cares about our friendship anymore. It hurts me so much because I considered her more than just a friend, she was a sister to me and I even wanted her to be my Maid of Honor. When she first moved away we kept regular contact, almost on a...

    I have a lot of friends at school.

    I'm not part of the popular group, but I'm popular in the sense that I have a lot of friends. But I know none of my friends genuinely care about me. I have some "friends" who talk about me behind my back, some who ruthlessly make fun of me to an extent that it's not even funny...

    It's a really weird feeling. I've got friends, and I really love them to bits. But I feel so alone all the time. I can never share my feelings with them, I guess it's because I'm afraid of being judged. Do other people get this feeling, or am I just weird...

    They Never Call, Text, Message, Come To See Me Etc.

    Sometimes I sit back and wonder if I even have friends, really. My childhood friends who I am the closest to rarely ever if at all call me up to inquire how I'm doing, text message me, or even communicate with me on facebook. Normally, I am the one who ends up contacting everyone...

    "Replacement" may as well be my name

    since that's what I am. No one bothers with me unless they need something from me. They use me shamelessly and then stuff me into the corner to collect dust all by myself. I'm so tired of being used like this, but what other purpose do I have then? No one needs me, no one...
