    Lots Of Acquaintances But No Real Friends

    I have no problem making "friends" but they don't stick around that much. I tend to go to the bar about once a week and have lots of acquaintances there. But when the money's gone, so are they. A lot of people have my phone number but no one calls. I get the excuse: "Oh, I didn't...

    This Feeling

    I'm in high school right now as a senior and this has made me realize that I have no real friends. My supposed friends act like either I don't exist when they are around their friends or they don't want to be rude and just pretend to be nice to you when it clearly shows that...

    Nobody Likes A Drama Queen

    I haven't felt like I've had any real friends since high school.  I lost all of my friends when I became entrenched in a very toxic relationship with a literal psychopath who destroyed me from the inside out.  I was already severely depressed.  After I got out of...

    Realized It Sometime This Year

    After being in college for two years, I finally found friends. I finally found people who I thought cared about me. And they do. But I thought they were real friends. We hung out for about a year and a half. And things were fine. But on one school break, it dawned on me, like a...
