    I Am a Grown Woman With No Friends . . .

    In a short while I will be 31 years old and I have no friends. If I had to ask someone for help at this very moment, there is no one I could call. However, I know lots of people on both professional and personal levels but not a single individual from these groups EVER...

    I don't have any friends.

    I have some fake people I know who are only around me if they are benefiting from me.. But I had to cut them off. I deserve more respect than that!

    I literally have no friends.

    I'm really awkward and I don't talk a lot. I never think I'm quiet I just don't know how to talk to new people. When people think I'm quiet they outcast me and treat me as if I did something wrong. The only people I consider my friends only use me for things (money my car etc...

    And I've stopped caring to the point it bothers

    people to see me content being alone. Sure I still get lonely depressed, and cry that I am wasting my life here alone but the difference now is I'm not breaking my back to impress others, to connect with others. Yeah people are fun but especially as they become adults they are...

    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 have no friends because people scare the ****

    out of me. Some people are cruel and I have anxiety problems. I get so lonely sometimes and I wish I could just hang out with someone. I like my alone time but it would be nice to have an option to hang out with someone when I want to.

    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...

    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.

    Having friends, from what I've found, is one big judgement.  When you meet and greet anyone it's the up and down look. I hate that. Even people I've known and liked in the past, I don't have anything to do with anymore. I hate that up and down look. Why?  I always feel like I'm...

    Acquaintances but no true friends.

    I guess the upside is that you don't deal with no one's drama. Maybe the lesson is non-attachment. I got too easily attached as a kid, and now the universe wants to me to stand on my own two feet. No friends are better than fake friends.

    if I'm "ok" I always say "yeah I'm fine I'm just daydreaming" to avoid expressing my feelings. To this day I can't seem to express my feelings maybe I seek someone outside of my family, maybe a friend? to ask me if I'm "ok" if that question will exist.
