    Seriously. None. My last friend

    and I stopped speaking this summer. And now I can officially say I have ZERO friends. In real life, online, in my head. I have a big family so they keep sane. But seriously, I've gone out with friends in the past year like.... I can count the times with my fingers... maybe even...

    I Don't Care For Them

    For the majority of my life i have been a loner , in school i was really quiet and shy so i didn't go and approach people like other kids did. It was the same through out elementary, middle and high school- the so called "friends" i did have were just people that approached me...

    I was doing great up

    until high school. I feel like my "friends" betrayed me as it started. I felt left out. It dawned upon me that i'm friendless (Unless my dogs count). I used video games to make up for my lack of friends but it just doesn't feel as fun. I'm antisocial and i feel like I wont make...

    that cares about me. A friend that knows when I'm sad and tries to cheer me up. A friend that knows me so well. A friend that won't judge me for who I am. I just want a friend.........

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I tend to make a distinction between the terms

    'Acquaintance' and a 'Friend' these days. When I was a kid I made the mistake of mixing them up. I got friendly and trusted people who I shouldn't have and paid the price. As the storm settled I was left there all alone as I am now. I always thought how difficult could it be...

    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 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 :(
