    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...

    Alone and Empty

    I'm sitting here alone in my office, with heavy, deep thoughts of David, my best friend who just passed away. Twice today, I picked up the phone, thinking I could send him a text. I sat down, wanting to email him. I have so much to share with him from the last few days, and yet...

    My best friend ever was killed in a car

    accident in college. My next best friend, who I thought was the love of my life, left me for another. My best friends now are my team at work. For some reason, I don't feel intimidated about throwing my heart out there for the right woman or getting close with new friends.

    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...

    Man Do I Ever

    It's been a very, very long time since I've been able to call someone my best friend. I miss that special bond that you only feel with your best friend. I wish I had a best friend to call my own. I always wonder if and when I will have a best friend again and what she will look...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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. :/
