I Have No Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,623 People

    So you know how everyone has a best friend?

    That one person that will always be there no matter what and will love you and laugh with you? I don't have that. I don't have that and I get really sad about it when I think about it because I don't have that person that you can go on midnight adventures with or go to 2:00...

    I just merely have acquaintances.

    I never had a true friend and if I were to count one then I guess it was with that one girl in high school. It sucks to know that a friendship I would have won't last long and I always feel like it was my fault. It probably was my fault anyways. Plus I have trust issues. I can...

    I "try" to Be nice, yet No one (I 'Should'

    Specify FEMALE; as I am NOT gay = homosexual, and I therefore Block MALES, Fearing misunderstanding) EVER indicates "a Desire/Willingness to BE my friend". So I "feel" Alone, and Being alone Enables 'Fear'.

    I Don't Care For Them

    Nope. None. I don't have friends in person,

    I haven't been out with a friend in like three years. I had close , even best friends online and they all left. I guess people get sick, tired and bored of me. It hurts.

    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...

    All my life I've never had a friend.

    Maybe I just am not the "type". People moan they "only have one". But they sound so unappreciative and ungrateful. If I had one friend I wouldn't need more. I don't know why people have the need to have a lot. But that's just me. One true one is ok for me.

    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.

    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 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...

    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 had a best friend. He left me.

    I don't understand how someone can just leave like that and claim they lost interest in you. It hurts. I have nobody now. Do you know how it feels to be depressed, and completely alone ? It's possibly the worst feeling.

    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...

    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...

    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 :(
