    I could really use a friend right now.

    A real one too, not simply a person asks how you're, you chat for maybe a day, than you never hear from them again and wondering if you said something wrong or something lol. Someone I can really connect to and open up to...a true friend.

    I guess it's my own fault

    for making less effort with my friends since I got a boyfriend, but they weren't the sort of friends I could share things with anyway. I need a friend who understands what I've been through and what I'm going through. I've never had a real friend

    I Wish I Had A Friend

    I've always had trouble making close friends. I don't know why really. I wonder if people worry that i'll judge them, as i always try to keep a high moral standard. Like me and one of my friends drifted after she started cheating on her boyfriend - i'd seen them flirting, but she...

    I'm hundreds of miles from most my family

    and friends. My husband is away or out with his friends most of the time. I just need human contact, someone to talk to. Even when he's here, it irritates him for me to speak.

    Connection

    Lack Of Friends

    When I was growing up, I had a lot of friends that I would talk to everyday on MSN Messenger. Now, I only talk to my brother on Skype a little everyday, and I hang out with my best friend in person a few times a week. I just want things to be like they were. I want to be able to...

    Well here I am. I’m on a website trying to meet people because I can’t seem to make friends in real life. I’m not going to make this a “poor me” story, but a “what the hell went wrong” story. It sometimes boggles my mind how people walk around and say “I have 500...

    Death And The Re Evaluation Of Life

    I really think when someone close to you dies you begin to re-evaluate your own life. Where are you now, where are you going where do you want to go? I am now in that process.
