    Doesn't Anyone Like Me?

    I've had friends before; the problem is, I have trouble maintaining relationships with my friends. For the most part, I don't want to have to put out the effort it takes to keep friends. I don't want to have to keep calling everyone and finding out what everyone is doing and if...

    I don't know why. Ever

    since I had my son, everyone bailed. I'm funny and kind and pretty (not that that matters) I don't gossip much and I don't backstab people. Ugh anyone wanna be my friend?

    Wandering Alone At Night.

    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...

    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...

    I stopped being friends with all the friends I

    had about 2 years ago because we all had separate differences and couldn't make the friendships work. These days I don't have any real friends ... Or "fake" friends for that matter.

    I have no friends. No fake friends.

    No kind of friends. No best friends. No "lets go shopping" friends. No one to console me when I cant talk to my husband about something... I dont even have family that I am close to. Dont talk to my mom, and dad doesnt talk to me because I dont talk to her. I miss having friends...

    Friendless

    Regardless of the fact that I think I am a good person, and help others when I can, I find that no one wants to return the favor.  I am continually overlooked and just plain left out.  People at work have even commented that I just assumed I had friends in the workplace...

    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 have no friends. Honestly,

    I'm not like one of those people who says it in a comedic sense when they're bored. No, I literally don't have any friends. I'd say it's been about 7 years now. I don't know what's wrong with me. I've accepted I'm not good enough for anyone. I'm just so sick of it, life get's...

    Life Can Be A Weird Journey

    Some people have lives that don't seem to make any sense at all. I had a father who rejected me and never spoke to me even though we lived in the same house up until I was 12 years old. I had to hide from him all throughout my childhood because when he saw me, he would hit me...

    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...

    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 Have No Friends...

    All my life I have wished for a "best friend". I am tired of having no social life. I just want to have someone to laugh with or hang out with. I want to talk to someone when I am upset. I have always wanted to just have a friend. I try my best but it does not work :(

    Friends Are Just Too Difficult

    Having friends, from what I've found, is one big judgement.  When you meet and greet anyone it's the up and down look. I hate that. Even people I've known and liked in the past, I don't have anything to do with anymore. I hate that up and down look. Why?  I always feel like I'm...
