    I don't. I realized I'm a loser.

    I feel like crap lol my brothers got four friends over and my sisters got two over. And me ? I haven't been out with a friend in three years. I don't have friends. I'm wasting my teenage years acting like an adult. When I'm an adult I won't be able to go out and have fun as much...

    For 6 years I haven't had a single friend.

    .. Everyone around this area is religious and they can all tell I'm gay... We'd move so I could get some friends... But we don't have the money for it ;-;

    No Friends!!!

       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...

    Hi, my name is Abby and I am a freshman at a

    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 haven't had any friends

    for 4 years now. I don't know how to make friends. I feel like everyone makes friends from school or work but I find it impossible to make friends at my community college. I could have made friends with people at my old job but I felt like I had to keep work and my life strictly...

    I am completely socially isolated.

    Its scary to think if anything went seriously wrong I literally have not one person I could call short of the police. I have zero friends, I don't have a partner, I talk to my sister maybe 3 times a year she lives 400km from me and every few months I get a call from my parents...

    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...

    Friends Betray...

    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...

    When ever I actually talk with my friends, they just look at me with a confused face. Don't they know that I can talk? Then at lunch, because there's two lunches my friendship group is split. Everyone except me has French (I have dance). We all go to our locker and I ask, 'are...

    Unfortunately I don't.

    I used to but not anymore. Ever since I started 10th grade(this year). I don't mind it though. I got used to it. Except sometimes when I see people hanging out with their friends. That's when I feel lonely and sad. I can't share anything with anyone. At least I'm not depressed...

    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...

    Have you ever been so frustrated to the point

    where you want to scream until you cry, and punch someone in the face? That's exactly how I feel tonight. I absolutely hate this generation. People think it's funny to complain on social media about how they're single, have no friends, or that no one'll love them because they're...

    I'm an *******, ******** don't have friends.

    But then I don't really care. A reasonable man adapts himself to the world around him. An unreasonable man expects to the world to adapt *to* him. Therefor all progress is made by unreasonable men.

    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...

    As it often is, I am over 1,000 miles from home. This is the longest I've ever been away from my family, whom I'm very very close to. Last semester I really only had two close friends, one of whom is my major. They both have the same major, and so they spend a lot more time...

    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 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 tired of the fact that I never leave my house, that no one ever texts or calls me on their own, and that when I text people I don't get replies. Everyone seems to have huge groups of friends yet I have no one. I don't even think my own boyfriend has interest in me...
