    I have no one I can really talk too .

    . No one who actually cares and it's always been that way.. I make friends easily but never really connect, people always put me on the outside I'm always the odd one out.

    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 Use Drugs Or Drink

    That's why I don't have any friends. But I have neighbors that see my situation, I take care of a handicapped mother and they are really nice. I even got invited to a party upstairs. It hasn't happened yet. But most of people's social infrastructure is based on having a "couple...

    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...

    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...

    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 :(

    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...

    My friends stopped talking to me

    and then they started arguing with me when i decided to avoid them. I am being classed as a *****. As we say in Jamaica "The same dog weh you feed tun round and bite the hand weh feed it" I never expected it to happen but it did and now i am lonely again

    When my family asks me

    if I'm "ok" I always say "yeah I'm fine I'm just daydreaming" to avoid expressing my feelings. To this day I can't seem to express my feelings maybe I seek someone outside of my family, maybe a friend? to ask me if I'm "ok" if that question will exist.

    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 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...
