    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...

    I have no one. The only person I have had to

    talk to over the past 18 years is my wife, who I am now wanting to divorce. I have no friends. I have no one I can talk to. It's just an empty space in the universe. It doesn't matter how loudly I scream, no one will hear.

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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'm actually shy/scared of making friends.

    I'm not too confident around other people and worried if they will find me interesting or not.

    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 Don't Care For Them

    For the majority of my life i have been a loner , in school i was really quiet and shy so i didn't go and approach people like other kids did. It was the same through out elementary, middle and high school- the so called "friends" i did have were just people that approached me...

    I'm moving from the capital to a small city by

    the sea with 4.000 inhabitants. I know absolutely no-one. I'm excited but also scared that I will be alone most of the time. I suck at connecting with people. I can count my friend on one hand.

    Not that I went through life without friends.

    Actually I had a good group of friends when I was younger but its a small town and everybody moved away or lost touch. I find when you are not working or in school, it is hard to meet people at all let alone make friends. I don't count my old friends as friends because we never...

       I've always had some really nice friends growing up, I actually felt really good with who I hung out with, then as soon as I moved I didn't know anyone at my new school, over all I was being bullied as well, for things that were even true. I gave it time, and I did meet some...

    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 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'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 truly do have no friends.

    It is really sad because these people I used to call my 'friends' said they would be there for me, that we are the best of friends and that anything I tell them is between us. I am one who has been abused their whole life in all aspects of abuse really, I deal with bullying...

    that having friends is bullshit, and I've also gotten to the point where I can't trust anyone not even my own family, and I become more suicidally inclined to kill myself more and more each day, because why not?....who would give a **** right? ??

    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...

    I know I have one or two friends,

    but I don't really talk to them often. I'd probably consider someone a friend if I talked to them every week or so and we actually hung out if we lived in the same area. I don't really know.

    and or seems like everyone in my class is friends except me. They all go out together and take pictures and I have never once been invited. I haven't said anything cause I don't want to be invited out of social obligation but instead because I'm genuinely wanted.
