    Friends Right Here That I Can Touch...

    Count: Zero... I feel as if I will never be what everyone who knows me wants. Yesterday (I should have taken a photo) I had on a black Henry Rollins shirt, a flouncy red skirt, blue lipstick and my hair all teased up. I read Shakespeare and smoked a cigar. I have "...

    In Real World

    I easily make friends, I am really honest and open and I love making my friends happy, so I'll do so many things for them. Then I see they are not as honest and do not wish me well. I had so called friends who tried to ruin my life. So though I make a lot of friends in real...

    Maybe Because I Speak My Mind?

    Because I have no secrets, because I was never an individual till just this year?  I don't know - and now it will be harder, because I must get away from this little place to find a future!

    I'm Not Into Collecting

    Some people can't appear in public without the assurance that they'll see dozens of friends.  I can't help wondering how many of them would go out of their way when true friendship asks for it.  That is the touchstone of friendship.  Everybody should be in need...

    One True Friend

    Kind of sad to say but it's the truth, I've only got one actual true friend. I met him 4 years ago in college and we have pretty much been inseparable since. We consider each other brothers. We've been there for each other countless times, dropping whatever we were doing to help...

    A Few Good Ones

    Right now as I see it I have two true friends. One of which is my best friend who's been with me since Jr. High, and the other is the nicest person in the world who would keep anyone's secrets and never do a single mean thing to anyone. I've had lots of friends come and go over...

    All Alone

    I feel LONELY! Every minute of everyday!!!! I have no one who I can turn to. No one will deeply understand my feelings and completely accept the way I am. No one will be there for me when I need them the most. NO SINGLE LIVING SOUL WILL!!!!

    At All...

    I can count on one hand the number of real friends that I have both on line and off. I know that I should have more but have never really had to many friends that want to be around. Never really understood as to why they didn't want to be around me through school, or church...
