    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'm not gonna lie. I have friends,

    but I feel so distanced from them that I don't know if they really know me. Sometimes I entertain the thought that nobody cares about me. I just hate that I need that approval and the constant reassurance that I am loved. I think I might be codependent. Idk. I wish I had a best...

    I have never had "friends"

    or a friend. Not the real kind anyway. People I hung out with once or twice or people who just used me. I last had one of those people many many years ago. Since then I've had no one. It is hard because I long to laugh and talk to someone. I just don't get along or have anything...

    I'm in grade 13 and I live in Canada.

    As the topic says, I don't have any friends. Although I have been to 3 different schools from grade 9 till now, and although I came to Canada about 4 years ago, so most people probably know each other from middle school or before, It still bothers me how I simply cannot make any...

    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...

    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 can honestly say I am proud of that.

    It's easy to let people get close, to trust them and to give yourself to them. I prefer the empty road. It's hard, but it's free.

    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...

    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 :(

    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.

    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...
