I Have No Friends

    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 had organised to drive a 16 round trip to see

    my "friend" for a couple days. Put in for time off from work 6 months ago for this weekend. Even 5 days ago had confirmed I'm coming and day before I leave she message me to say she has plans with other friends all weekend that I can't come too. Feeling like I just don't matter...

    I guess I never thought of myself

    as weird or alone, but I have realized that I have no friends. I moved to Oregon from Georgia two years ago and I just don't like anyone here. I have maintained my friendships in Georgia, but I just don't like anyone here. It gets really lonely. Especially in the summer. All I...

    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 :(

    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.

    Maybe it is me, or the people I choose.

    I cant seem to find true friends. I sure can find people that use me, lie to me, assault me, but friendship seem out of reach. Now days it seems more and more people don't hold much value when it comes to friendship. Just recently a older "friend" that I known most my life...

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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'm tired of being lonely all of the time.

    I'm tired of the fact that I never leave my house, that no one ever texts or calls me on their own, and that when I text people I don't get replies. Everyone seems to have huge groups of friends yet I have no one. I don't even think my own boyfriend has interest in me...

    I Haven't Had Any Real Friends Since I Was 10 Years Old

    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...

    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...
