    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.

    I know a lot of people,

    no one I would consider calling if I was in an accident, that's meant for friends- I'd prefer to walk the road alone. 🎵boulevard of broken dreams - green day🎵

    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...

    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...

    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 :(

    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...

    That's what you get for having an unattractive

    body, plain personality and generally being a boring person. I don't blame people for that. When the last close friend left me, I cried only for few nights, got drunk only once and smoked only a pack. So, I don't even bother. I don't need to keep the distance between people, I...

    I've tried to make friends but I fail miserably when it comes to making small talk. I have no idea what to talk about. I don't drink or do drugs. I love to read, but not a lot of people like to discuss books, at least the books I read. I love to watch anime, but again not a...

    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 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...

    Life Can Be A Weird Journey

    Some people have lives that don't seem to make any sense at all. I had a father who rejected me and never spoke to me even though we lived in the same house up until I was 12 years old. I had to hide from him all throughout my childhood because when he saw me, he would hit me...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Does anyone else feel like everyone the same age

    as you is out having fun, experiencing life and really happy. While your at home alone with nothing to get excited about, no memories to be made. I never thought I would be so isolated at this point in my life.
