I Have No Friends

    Throughout highschool I always had friends

    and hung out with them on almost a daily basis. Now in college and with a job i don't have as much time. I've also lost contact with a lot of them or we stopped being friends because they were crappy friends. Now on my days off I get so bored, all i do is either study or do...

    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...

    The fact that I'm not someone

    who puts a lot of effort into developing relationships could be a good reason for why I find myself in such a state. But it's also about circumstances and luck, I guess, because it doesn't all belong to our control like you can't control how many people or what kind there will...

    It is better than I thought

    Everyone seems to like me and be friendly with me.  I might not have anyone to hang out with now but I will keep on joining drama club, board game club, church youth group, chorus and other things I enjoy and I know once I get to know people in these groups more and they get to...

    It's extremely depressing.

    I've put in the effort to no avail. 21 and I'm very unique. I'm not a follower but I guess it's easy to overlook me.

    I had no friends since high school.

    I think it is a blessing in disguise.

    I have "friends" that I sit with on white days but on blue days, I have no one. I sit in this little room part of the art room and its just embarrassing.. I have no one to talk to or any close friends there. I'm the outcast, the antisocial one, and honestly, I'm starting to...

    No Friends!!!

       I've always had some really nice friends growing up, I actually felt really good with who I hung out with, then as soon as I moved I didn't know anyone at my new school, over all I was being bullied as well, for things that were even true. I gave it time, and I did meet some...

    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 truly do have no friends.

    It is really sad because these people I used to call my 'friends' said they would be there for me, that we are the best of friends and that anything I tell them is between us. I am one who has been abused their whole life in all aspects of abuse really, I deal with bullying...

    It's not that I don't want friends.

    I just find it difficult to be friends with people my age. I've always been told I'm more mature than people my age. I need a friend that will talk about serious things with me. I don't want to spend the rest of my life with people who don't care about anything.

    I'm moving from the capital to a small city by

    the sea with 4.000 inhabitants. I know absolutely no-one. I'm excited but also scared that I will be alone most of the time. I suck at connecting with people. I can count my friend on one hand.

    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...

    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've always had "friends,

    " but not really friend friends, if that makes any sense at all. I think a lot of you might be on the same page. I empathize with people easily and I love hearing the things they say about themselves. The issue is that it's never reciprocated. Maybe the things I say are too...

    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...

    Life Can Be A Weird Journey

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

    The saddest thing about my story is that I have no clue what it feels like to have a real friend in my life. I had associates when I was in elementary school. When I was 8-10 years old, I lived in Iowa with my parents where I had a best friend, and several other friends my age...

    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...

    An experience I can definitely relate too.

    It's seems all my life I've felt like I had friends but quickly realize that if I don't call, text, or make plans I won't hear from them. It's always been this way. Literally days, weeks, months, & years can go by and no one would even reach out to see if I'm okay. When my...

    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...

    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 :(

    but when you have no one to talk to about it sucks even more. I'm lucky to have my sisters at least. I want a friend that texts or calls because they are concerned when I post certain stuff on social media, or offers to get you dinner when you had a ****** day, or doesn't even...
