    Always Getting Kicked To The Curb....

    I am crying as I am writing this. My heart is broken once again by people that I "thought" were my friends. I can still recall as a child seeing my "friends" trying to hide that they were getting together without me. It is still happening to me now in my 40's. Being social...

    Losing Friends

    I'm bored pretty much. What's it like to lose a friend? Pretty much the worst feeling ever. Especially when you were young and you didn't actually know what was happening and all you thought was, " oh, she's leaving, okay." and you didn't actually know you're never going to see...

    Why?

    MY whole life, I've always had a decent amount of friends and only 1-2 close friends. But every time someone gets close to me, we just seem to drift apart and never bother to contact each other.  My soccer friends, my on-line gaming friends, primary school friends...

    I keep losing friends and when we say we will hang we don't someone is all ways busy but then when we try to do something, something comes up. When we do hang out, we don't talk for a week or if we do we text for a little bit then stop then don't text or talk for a while. It's...

    I Keep Losing Friends

    I like to think of myself as a loyal person, but i cant keep friends for long lengths of time. Most of my friends end up being out of my life because of life-choices. I have found that ever since highschool, whenever a group of my friends choices differ from mine, the...

    I have dealt with an abnormally large amount of drama with "friends" lately. I think I finally believe its my fault. There is something about me that is making everyone hate me. I don't know what it is. I have tried to figure it out. But at the same time I know I need to find...

    Friends Forever?

    I've only ever had one best friend my entire life. She's influenced me and is the reason why I do most of the things I do today. She inspired me to write and just be myself. I wasn't a happy child but when I met her, I just became happy all of a sudden. I loved her, she was my...

    I'm sick of being alone in a room while my friends are having the time of their life. But I don't know how to interact with them. They never listen to me. They're always quick to go somewhere but don't invite me. Hell, even my own damn girlfriend barely pays me any attention. I...

    that sad when I lose friends because I'm used to it. I'm what you call a mover so I either move every year or 2. I can never keep friends. I either lose them by moving away or just what I say and they don't like it. I'm a quiet person and whenever I open my mouth about something...
