I Have No Friends

    All my friends are annoying

    or fake. I don't have a real friend, someone almost everyone seems to have. That one person you can be yourself with. I'm "too nice" to people and they tend to walk over me. Or think I'm "plastic". Or they're just polite to me but never themselves. I don't get it. I feel...

    I'm 21 years old and I have social anxiety.

    I feel like I will never have friends in my future. It's hard to meet people when I am shy and certainly not talkative at all! I get depressed about it, especially after I come home from class and do nothing exciting like going out and have fun... I have a feeling this will be...

    The last time I had friends was middle school.

    Once I got to high school it was like I forgot how to talk to people. I became terrified of talking to people my own age.

    I don't. I realized I'm a loser.

    I feel like crap lol my brothers got four friends over and my sisters got two over. And me ? I haven't been out with a friend in three years. I don't have friends. I'm wasting my teenage years acting like an adult. When I'm an adult I won't be able to go out and have fun as much...

    Trying To Survive College Without Friends

    Hi guys! I'm currently an undergraduate freshman at a good-sized school. I just started my second semester and I realized that I have really no good friends here. Yeah, I get along with guys that live with on my floor, but I've never really "hung out" with any them on a regular...

    Yesterday was my birthday.

    I turned 21. I've never had friends, never celebrated my birthdays with anyone so there's no reason for me to be sad but for some reason, I feel so alone. Isn't it strange how you can still suffer from loneliness like it's something new even when it's the most constant and...

    When I was in school I saw how my classmates

    were bullying weaker ones, I listened how they talked **** behind their own friends backs. And I always imagined what it feels like to be bullied, what unwound do at their position , in fact I even wished to be bullied yet I was let's say to strong for other to bully me.... I...

    I told myself I was going to change.

    . Stop being shy and introverted and getting anxious around people. But nothing changes. I'm currently on holidays at my family's. It's kind of a lost place. My family there is just compounded of old people. I have no cousin. No friends. So basically my activities are with my...

    I Finally Figured Out Why I Have No Friends

    All this time, I thought it was because there was just something repellent about me. Or that it was due to my lacking social skills, or a doomed fate to forever-alone-dom, or mismatched frequencies between me and the rest of the world. But the real reason why I have no friends...

    Lonely.

    Apart from the four friends I've made in the last year online, I have no "real life" friends. I've never been one to have a whole group of friends, only a few, but I lost those when I left school due to bullying in 2009. They weren't genuine nor did they really care about me as a...

    Friends Betray...

    I've only ever experienced betrayal from friends, so I choose to no longer have any, and I'm happier that way.  My best friend slept with, and got pregnant by, my husband.  That was the last straw.  Because she wasn't the first.  I'd lost boyfriends to...

    I'm terrible at socialising due to my lack of self consifidence,anxiety and paranoia. I make friends online, I get close to them and then they slowly drift away from me and I never ask them why. I've been alone and lonely for ages and it's killing me. Why can I be someone who...

    Days Of Silence

    I can go days without any text messages or phone calls and the only people that do contact me are my two brothers. I get so jealous when everyone else around me are constantly on their phones. Sometimes I feel like I would be happier if I just gave up and accepted my loneliness.

    I Haven't Had Any Real Friends Since I Was 10 Years Old

    The saddest thing about my story is that I have no clue what it feels like to have a real friend in my life. I had associates when I was in elementary school. When I was 8-10 years old, I lived in Iowa with my parents where I had a best friend, and several other friends my age...

    It happened again last night, that feeling. I went out on a very busy street at night and had a walk, there were clubs, pubs, cafe's restaurants, etc. The walk started out fine, when I locked my thoughts up in my own little world and keep them to myself. But I soon found out...
