I Have No Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,607 People

    I am 23 and have no family

    or friends. My only family is in another country and they don't really care about me. My grandmother is alright but my mother is toxic. My girlfriend of 3 years is only with me now because I cook for her, keep her company and help her sleep. Although she claims I don't do much...

    I'm about to graduate from college

    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.

    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 don't think I have anyone around me whom I

    can consider nor call a friend. Part of it is because I push away everyone and part is because I see their true colors. F it.

    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 went out today to meet my friends to see

    Spider-Man 2. I was walking to the front of the theater when I received a phone call. Two of them were able to get tickets but the movie had just sold out. I walked back to my car so I could go back home. I don't even know what the other friends in the group were doing since...

    i never thought this before.

    ...making friends on social website is way difficult than real life sometimes for me. I am not good at texting,words can't describe my feelings. i'd rather talking to people on the phone. it's pretty fun.

    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 think I have friends now.

    Long distance but friends. I went to visit my family then ended up hanging out with an old friend from high school and her group of friends last weekend and it actually was really fun. I didn't feel awkward or judged by any of them. I'm planning of moving to the area in 2 months...

    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 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.

    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...

    And I am okay with that.

    I was never really a people person. The best group of friends I ever had was online and only lasted a few months anyway. The next best group were characters I created for a series of books I wrote. And since that's just crazy talk, well, moving on.... lol. I don't mind not...

    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 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 "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'.

    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'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...

    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 :(

    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...
