I Really Need a Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,877 People

    I'm a 23 year old female with pretty horrendous

    OCD. I get wrapped up inside the world of living with the fear of every situation that I find it almost impossible to ever try anything new. I don't leave my house that much simply because the logical side of my mind won't let me be spontaneous and just do things without the OCD...

    I have given up on finding a friend quite a

    while back since almost everybody on EP is either a 'fakey' or 'freaky'. Sad but true.

    Connection

    Why can't I seem to truly connect with someone? A deep, genuine connection. Not just someone to chat with, but someone I can really feel like I can be myself with. The more people that talk to me in daily life, the more alone I feel. Maybe one day...

    I have friends, I just feel really awkward

    when I'm near them. I wonder if there are people that can understand what I've been through and be there for me. I want someone who can hang out with me a lot. I feel really lonely. I just want a friend.

    Lets just say the title of the experience

    doesn't justify how badly I really need friends. Im 21 and living with my boyfriend, whom I live a life of almost zero sex with. I haven't had an actual friend to chat with in about five years. My best friends currently are my super cute ******* of a dog, my cat the...

    I have none whom I can trust.

    My life was getting really hard so I ran away for a couple of weeks.. Then I come home to discover that everyone has moved on. And that I'm still just.. Me. Nobody cared or anything. My room was taken, my stuff put away. It was like they wanted to forget me. This is so messed up...

    I am a little socially awkward,

    well a lot. I have a hard time making and keeping new friends. I'm not sure why. I'm just looking for a few text buddies to help pass the time by. I love listening to others, giving and receiving advice, joking around, talking about pop culture etc

    I have people that I talk to

    but I feel like not one of them I can be my full self with. My closest friend is literally only at school about 2 days in a week therefore is kinda slow and I can barely relate to. I've always wanted someone I could always talk to and truly enjoy their company. Someone who, if...

    I Need A Real Friend!

    I am tired of people who pretend to be your friend for their own ulterior motives. Is it so hard to find good hearted people these days?

    I Need A Friend

    I'm socially awkward I have some social anxiety and agoraphobia. Though I'm a funny guy I fail to earn respect in people or to make an emotional connection. Other than that I'm kind hearted and compassionate. I had this girl I found in omegle, she helped me improve much but now...

    Honestly, a friend! Someone to listen &

    preferably sympathize rather than empathize. Someone who doesn't just listen to two sentences then respond with a sexual connotation. I want someone I can go to with anything...if sex happens...so be it, but it's not where I wanna start!

    or friends. I've been moving from one country to the other since I was 2 years old, lived in 13 different cities in 5 countries. So I never really got the chance to build up a friendship. In the last 4 years I stopped trying to make friends because I knew I would leave again any...

    I moved to a new country

    where I don't speak the language so making friends has been incredibly hard. I am giving it my all to learn the language and communicate with the other students but it isn't going anywhere. Just feeling isolated.

    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.
