I Have No Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,116 People

    I am completely socially isolated.

    Its scary to think if anything went seriously wrong I literally have not one person I could call short of the police. I have zero friends, I don't have a partner, I talk to my sister maybe 3 times a year she lives 400km from me and every few months I get a call from my parents...

    I never had friends. In elementary school I was

    afraid to talk to anyone. In middle school I didn't talk to anyone and sat by myself all the time. In high school I didn't talk to anyone, ever, at all. I always spent all of my time in my parents house and I still do. Im ******* depressed over my whole life and I just wanna...

    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...

    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...

    I went out today to meet my friends to see

    Spider-Man 2. I was walking to the front of the theater when I received a phone call. Two of them were able to get tickets but the movie had just sold out. I walked back to my car so I could go back home. I don't even know what the other friends in the group were doing since...

    Most people on EP find this very hard to

    believe, but I promise you all that I have no friends outside of EP lol. Literally, I have none, nada, zip, zilch, zero. If I were to die today, only a handful of people outside my family and those of you on here would know or even care. I have a really hard time in real life...

    Trying To Survive College Without Friends

    Hi guys! I'm currently an undergraduate freshman at a good-sized school. I just started my second semester and I realized that I have really no good friends here. Yeah, I get along with guys that live with on my floor, but I've never really "hung out" with any them on a regular...

    Well, that's not entirely true.

    I have few friends but they live on the other side of the country and I see them maybe once a year. We do text every now and then, once in few weeks. They're just gotten busy with their lives, and I get that. Still makes me feel lonely.. My partner is my friend of course but he...

    I'm an *******, ******** don't have friends.

    But then I don't really care. A reasonable man adapts himself to the world around him. An unreasonable man expects to the world to adapt *to* him. Therefor all progress is made by unreasonable men.

    It's not really bad if you find a hobby,

    and things to do. Honestly, for some of us, it seems kind of impossible to make friends, but I guess that's just what we think.

    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...

    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...

    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.
