    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    I don't have many friends in life,

    I think it's because they're all

    so busy with their own lives. I try to keep in touch with them and ask them to hang out but they all just say they're busy with work and school so I don't bug them anymore.

    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...
