    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 dropped out of high school,

    then I lost my only friend. I babysit Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays so I don't have time to make any not that I'd be able to anyway. I really just need one best friend that I tell everything and won't judge me.

    This is one of my biggest secrets.

    . I have absolutely no true friends. I don't trust anybody and I am very paranoid since I have had best friends betray me. I barely go out because I have nobody to go with unless it's a guy who wants to **** me. I feel alone and it sucks.. I am all dressed up with makeup on and...

    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.

    - Friends are all caught up in their

    relationships. - I never get a "Hello" or "Bye" - They all have inside jokes that I never get. - They all hang out together, when I wanna join there's some kind of excuse. - Best Friend turned against me. - No one to hang out with. - I'm always the outsider. - They'll...

    I have never had "friends"

    or a friend. Not the real kind anyway. People I hung out with once or twice or people who just used me. I last had one of those people many many years ago. Since then I've had no one. It is hard because I long to laugh and talk to someone. I just don't get along or have anything...

    I honestly have no friends,

    at all. The person that gets closest as a friend, is my sister. I'm neither socially awkward or any thing. I have a little anxiety, but I'm afraid to talk to people. I have no clue what I fear, but I don't like it, and I will get a panic attack. But it holds me back from so...

    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...

    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...

    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 :(
