I Miss Having a Best Friend

    It's Always Been Like This..

    I've never had a best friend. Everyone I've ever known, they'd just manipulate my mind, use me, and leave me alone all by myself when they find something/ someone better. I've gotten used to this now. Some things are meant to be. And some things are not. I'm so jealous of all you...

    What Happened?

    You used to be the coolest guy that I knew. A total nerd who would be there if I ever needed you. But now you have changed. Not only that but you have changed for the worst. You say that you are happy but that is a ******* lie! All you ever do now is get high and drink. I wish...

    after years apart I reunited with in 2007 ..he was so good to me.He loved me for me and stood up for me always even if I was wrong. He never judged me and was there for me thru good and bad. My friendship with him meant more than anything else between us. He was my partner in...

    Some how I thought putting more energy into my

    relationship was better than finding time to nurture my friendships. I miss having inside jokes that only we understood the backstory. I miss having fun with no matter where we were. I miss watching juicy tv and calling each other on commercial breaks. The list goes on.

    I Miss Having A Best Friend... Haven't Had One Since My 2 Unique Girl Bff's Back In High School

    SOOOOO much I could say about missing having a best friend. Another to talk to about anything and everything no matter how big or small. Someone to call or write to. Someone who is always there when you need her to be. To chat with... to confide in. To do silly stuff with, to...

    I Miss My Best Friend....

    My best friend and I always managed to find the humor in a situation, and I thought it was great. But he died long before he should have, and I miss him more than I miss being married to either of my wives.

    I Just Want Someone To Confide In

    I don't know why but everybody around me seems to be quite distant from me no matter how hard I try to get closer to them. I also find it hard to say what I'm actually feeling. I'm afraid of what others will think of me too much. I'm scared they'd laugh at me and dismiss my...

    I now know she was never a “friend” because real friends are never jealous or envious of you. Additionally, real friends do not harbor resentments or attempt to bring you pain and unhappiness when you possess something they want. Real friends want to see you succeed in...

    It sucks not to have someone you can out with

    everyday, go places with every weekend, fool around with, talk to about anything. In times like these we need a best friend, but in times like these best friends hardly exist. :/

    Cause I Have No One To Really Talk To

    In a time when I have so many inner thoughts and battles with myself, and no one to turn to. "I'm never alone, I'm alone all the time" could not be any truer.
