    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...

    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...

    It's not that I have no friends at all I have

    one, she's my best friend and I love her like a sister, but she's the only friend I've been able to hold on to, I'm not saying that I want this giant group of friends, but more than one would be nice

    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.

    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...

    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...

    You know what sucks? When the only person you

    can freely talk to drifts away... You then don't talk about this to anyone because there is no one to tell... I'm done with trying.

    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'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...

    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 :(

    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...

    You wanna know a secret?

    One of the main reasons I hate people and they don't like me. Is because I can't be myself. No one ever laughs at my jokes or with me. They always frown, look annoyed, look disgusted or angry. I can't ever be myself. So yes it's why I'm in my youth and haven't had a single...

    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...

    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...

    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.
