    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...

    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'm in Portland, OR for 5 days!

    Someone be nice and show this stranger around! I want the local experience, not some guide book or snooty concierge advice.

    completely different at home than I am at school.At home I'm loud cheeky bubbly and tell my opinion.But at school I'm quiet shy I don't talk very much at all in school.I told them about me having no friends and my dad said just find one person who likes the same things as you...

    I have always taken life very seriously.

    Studying and work left no time for friends. I don't have a single friend to meet over the weekend.

    It is better than I thought

    Everyone seems to like me and be friendly with me.  I might not have anyone to hang out with now but I will keep on joining drama club, board game club, church youth group, chorus and other things I enjoy and I know once I get to know people in these groups more and they get to...

    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...

    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 have always struggled to make/keep friends.

    I became a hairdresser and that helped me connect with people but I only ever kept a real friend for a year or 2 before they would just stop talking to me. I don't know what's wrong with me that people just don't seem to like. I just stay home now. I got fired from my job...

    I just want one person,

    one friend, whom I can do the stupidest **** with. I don't want a lot of friends. Just one real one. Are they a dime a dozen or some ****? Or am I so ****** up no one wants to be my friend?

    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...

    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 always thought that not having any friends

    when I was younger was just a phase. But it wasn't. Always the third wheel and the tag-a-long in middle school. The weird quiet loner in high school. I tried to make friends in college but sororities didn't want me, people I tried to befriend already had their cliques and never...

    or fake. I don't have a real friend, someone almost everyone seems to have. That one person you can be yourself with. I'm "too nice" to people and they tend to walk over me. Or think I'm "plastic". Or they're just polite to me but never themselves. I don't get it. I feel...

    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've always struggled with making friends,

    and then it got worse when I developed social anxiety. I've never been able to get along well with people, everyone always assumes I'm rude or stuck up because of my bluntness and sarcasm, or because I don't talk. But the weird thing is, I don't really feel lonely or desperate...

    My "bestest" and only friend left me for a kid named Camerine, and he's 9, I'm 15, and she's 12. She doesn't talk to me anymore. She turned shallow, selfish and heartless. When I try to talk to her, she pushes me away, and treats me like an annoying stranger. She hates me for NO...

       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...

    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've lost them all. Some of them weren't losses,

    but now I have no one. No one to call to hangout I'm always by myself, I try and make friendships but it never seems to work. I always put in the effort and get nothing in return. I'm tired of not having any true friends. I'm tired of having no one.

    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...
