I Have No Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,704 People

    I have 2 friends. That is it.

    Only two. I am not just saying this because I only "feel close" to two people, I mean literally, two. If I were to make a Facebook page I would have only 2 real friends to add. (No online friends and no family, either). I have only 2 friends in my phone book. It ****** me off...

    I've literally never had any.

    Unless you count the ones I made when I was in Kindergarten and Elementary school.

    I think Ive just had some pretty bad luck

    when it comes to making real 'TRUE' friends where I live (in Northern England)... & It's all too easy to take it to heart when you've been hurt by those people you thought of once as close friends.. I'd say im a good person, easy to get on with, honest, caring,..silly sometimes...

    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.

    A girl with low self esteem,

    no confidence, shy, quiet, that doesn't smile anymore, is a book with many locks and no keys, wishes to be able to smile and make other people smile. To get out of her cage and fly. But it's locked by negative thoughts and self hatred. Maybe it's better to stay in this cage and...

    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 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...

    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...

    No Friends!!!

    ย ย  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...

    Lonely.

    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...

    I have no friends but myself.

    I have no one to cry with, share my feeelings with, hang out with, and talk to but myself. I always talk to myself. And I love it. I've been dreaming a home where I'm alone. 'cause being alone is fun.

    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...

    for some reason my friendless issue always boils down to me just not giving 2 cents. I don't have the will to actually pursue a friendship or any type of relationship actually. I just don't care enough to work for
