    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...

    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...

    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...

    Acquaintances but no true friends.

    I guess the upside is that you don't deal with no one's drama. Maybe the lesson is non-attachment. I got too easily attached as a kid, and now the universe wants to me to stand on my own two feet. No friends are better than fake friends.

    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...

    When my family asks me

    if I'm "ok" I always say "yeah I'm fine I'm just daydreaming" to avoid expressing my feelings. To this day I can't seem to express my feelings maybe I seek someone outside of my family, maybe a friend? to ask me if I'm "ok" if that question will exist.

    I ******* hate it. I hate eating alone, I hate walking alone, I hate sitting alone in class, I hate being alone. I haven't seen anyone from my high school (which is VERY weird) so there's no one for me to comfortably talk to... Besides that, everyone is so... weird. I know that...

    Friends Are Just Too Difficult

    Having friends, from what I've found, is one big judgement.  When you meet and greet anyone it's the up and down look. I hate that. Even people I've known and liked in the past, I don't have anything to do with anymore. I hate that up and down look. Why?  I always feel like I'm...

    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 :(

    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.
