    I have lost all my closest friends.

    even the ones I wasn't close with. I sit in this caffateria at the college and I realize we used to all hang out here and study together and laugh. Now I sit alone in the corner studying by myself and it makes me want to cry. Maybe they didn't change maybe I did... I want friends...

    No Strings Attached

    I want a friend that will listen to me and talk to me. I want to be able to tell that person a problem and will trust them when I say Don't tell anyone. I want someone who will not tell my parents or my brother or other people secrets and problems. Hey, maybe it doesn't even have...

    I think it would be wonderful to have a friend

    to just talk to openly and not have to worry about what I am saying. To be able to share in the good the bad, to be able to tell my struggles, fears, weaknesses, joys, triumphs with- with someone who actually cares, and I will not have to worry about offending or burdening them...

    so hard, and it's even harder when people don't understand and tell you to get over it or when they ask if you're okay and you have to say you're fine because when you say otherwise they act as if you're being dramatic or silly... It would be great to have somebody that I could...

    I need someone who I can talk to openly. It's not that I don't have friends I do I just don't have anyone that I can really talk too and I'm pushing every one away as I find it hard to trust anyone at all! The people around me are just selfish, I'm a kind caring generous person...

    I used to have a lot of friends. My overbearing controlling husband has scared most of them off. I am lonely a lot so I join these web sites for friends. People I can talk to about anything and everything that is on my mind.

    The Lonely Man

    As I walk the street I feel like people ignore me. Never say a word not even a whisper. I sit down and stare like no even know I'm there. I say to myself I guess there always going to be me. Because no one around can the lonely man in their big world

    It's kind of hard to find a friend

    that you can talk about anything to them and they'll understand you. Well for me I don't have a best friend and I never really had one. I wish I had a friend that I can talk to them openly about anything. That would be very nice.

    I'm that ugly awkward girl nobody wants to be

    seen with or bothers associating with. Yes, I'm a very kind human being, but I know that's not enough. Being ugly and shy has caused me to miss out on a lot of normal experiences growing up, for that reason my maturity might seem stunned. I haven't really dated... Gone partying...

    Someone To Talk To...

    I find myself so wrapped up with trying to figure out who I am and what I want out of life. That I push people out of my life by not reaching out to them. When they reach out to me I am more than happy and willing to respond and interact. Its just that I don't reach out to them...

    I'm not really that friendly.

    I don't have friends in school when I was young and I don't speak much. I'm always shy for no reason. It's getting boring, and now I think I want someone to talk to. :/
