    i used to but she sucked my husband's d@$&

    so that put a real damper on the friendship. I've always had a hard time making friends since my first priority has always been to my husband and children. plus I'm neurotic and a little paranoid so when someone tried to be friends with me i just assumed they felt bad for me and...

    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...

    I had a few friends then moved to a different

    state and lost most of them. I talk to one person but they don't consider me as their friend. Most people think I'm weird and it makes me feel upset.

    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...

    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 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 :(

    Friends. The word brings a feeling of disgust.

    Can't be bothered with the high maintenance of it all. I don't waste time on social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, the lot of them. Either I talk to a person, or I don't. There is no 'friends', no middle ground.

    I have no friends because I'm me

    which is ugly,weird,unintelligent, and poor.What does this mean? It means I'm not "cool" or "normal" I don't do sports or theater. I can't sing,dance,and I don't like sports so I don't fit in a group. I don't have friends simply because no one like me because of who I am.

    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 friends but sometimes the word "friend"

    itself just does not seem very real or existent to me. Is it weird that even when I do have friends, I feel as if I have no friends? Friends are great to have around but I feel like every time I become best friends or close to someone, there's always a need that at some point I...

    Social media has been no cure.

    Granted I am young and some may view me as having "my whole life left to make friends", but let me tell you why this is not the case. 1. It is easier to make friends at a childhood age. I am past the easiest stages, now that I have a pretty strong anxiety (and a bit of...

    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 true friend is one

    who accepts and loves you for your gifts and faults and forgives you for your mistakes, failed beliefs, and generally who you are. If you can find one person in this world who is that person, marry them. If not, be their friend for life.
