    Almost 5 years ago I broke up with my (ex)

    boyfriend after being together for 7 years. in those 7 years my friends became his friends and visa versa. He owned several bars where my friends still went after we broke up, no problem for doing that, but instead of catching up with me they rather belonged to his circle. now...

    I have a friend who is super self conscious

    about her weight and appearance..she has been tearing me down a lot recently. I wonder if she even realizes that she does it? I found a dress that was originally 50$ marked down to 7$ and she said it must be cheap material. Whenever We talk about clothes she labels everything I...

    Selfish And Superficial People

    Until recently I fought off the thought that my lousy parents and family background made such a great influence on the people I choose as my friends. To think about it, that was a product of my insecurities, left from the relationship I had with my parents. So I chose people...

    Bad Experience

    Fortunately I can say that this sort of thing does not happen all the time. I have A LOT of acquaintances and only a handful of people I actually consider to be friends, so if this happened all the time I'd be a pretty lonely lady. It's a shame that it had to come down to this...

    My ex-friends sucked.

    There were the little things. Just typical teenaged small problems that would roll off my back. I'd be the third-wheel whenever I was in a group with them. Always bumped behind the two talkers while we'd be walking along the side-walk. I'd think. "Okay, fine, I can listen to...

    In my evolution, I have become very clear to

    the idea that a human being's love and care are just temporary. People express themselves through words but then get tired of you easily and sooner, you will be able to decipher their true intentions. There you will understand that nobody really does care about you. Therefore a...

    I took my best friend to church camp with me.

    After I came back to the cabin from swimming i started getting dressed to go horseback riding. Before I could get my clothes on she shoved me out the door of the cabin and locked it. Eventually she let me back in.

    and my bestfriend stopped talking for no reason. Every time I'm there she doesn't even make efforts to look at me. It's really getting me down because I've been questioning what I did wrong. I have no idea how,judging from our memories and laughs, could lead to this? And no it's...

    I try to be friends with everyone, and I've been told that I'm really nice, or at least used to be. Now that I'm out of my old school which had a really mean bully, it's worse. There's girls that are my 'friends' but always insult me and are sarcastic to me a lot, just because...

    for many years. He was always a "rebel" and didn't play by the rules. I was rebellious when I was younger but as most people do, I grew out of it, grew up and accomplished bigger and better things. A few years ago I caught up with him again as he lives up the block from me. I...

    There was the time Ansley and Daniela pestered me about the past. Throughout the years Ansley and Daniela teased me about my 9th grade boyfriend, but it REALLY got worse in senior year, when of course I was feeling cruddy enough without their help. And years ago I told them...

    I've been with the wrong friend

    for 2 years. My friend didn't understand me at all. She was my only friend. She is very fast and lively. I'm the opposite of her. She is bored of me. I'm very hurt because of her. We don't talk with each other for now, but I think we will not talk anymore.

    Is This Really The New Definition Of Friendship?

    When did it become okay for friends to have strong opinions about my diet, lifestyle and marriage? I grew up in a world where you supported your friends no matter what, and the only grounds for dumping a friend was if they were unpleasant directly to YOU. Nowadays, it seems the...

    It was back then when I was a few pounds bigger.

    They were a funny bunch to be with and I liked them to since I was a hopeless romantic back then. Nevertheless, the side of them that I disliked was the fact that they loved making fun of me. They would be blurting out jokes, and as a person who could laugh easily, I'd grin...
