I Suck At Making New Friends

A friend in need is a friend indeed... 248 People

    Today I tried to make a new friend

    and it finally seems to be working but then I have to remember that people can be cruel and walk away at any moment. I hate myself.

    Too Hard

    Sometimes, I wonder why it's so hard to make friends. Then I wonder if maybe it's not just me. Maybe I'm just awful at it. Maybe I don't know how to keep friends, or I go after the wrong kind of friends. Right now I'm at another point in my life where I don't feel comfortable...

    It's hard to find a person

    who can deal with me. I'm a lot to handle. I also kind of prefer being a hermit. No one bothers me and I slowly lose more of my ability to interact with humans in any manner that could be considered socially acceptable.

    Back On EP

    Days ago I made claims to leaving EP in a few days, and I felt I was adamant of this. Turns out, not so much. Well, I guess after just discovering your grandfather has had a severe stroke and having no friends in real life to talk to seriously about this kind of thing, I figured...

    Ohhh gosh, I suck at making friends.

    I am socially akward so its hard for me to make new friends, I freeze up once I'm close to a person. Uh..another reason why I suck at making friends is that well..people often make fun of me for what I do. I admit I have a pretty dark sense of humor, but I rarely show it now...

    I Really Do....

    I really Suck at making new friends, I don't know how to talk to someone, and I don't know how to just go up to someone out of the blue and just starting talking to them. I guess that is why, outside of Ep, I have like no friends at all. It really sucks, but I guess I just suck...

    I'm horrible at making friends in person.

    I've recently moved to a different country (England) and it sucks. I'm having a hard time making friends. My people skills are non-existing ..

    Shy People of the World, Unite!

    I just plain don't trust people! I was picked on in school alot and never found my "clic" to be with. When you're outside the pack like that, you can't make friends with people on an equal footing. You meet someone who has tons of friends and loads of experiences to...

    ok. I can't make a conversation last longer

    than 5 min. my sense of humor is rusty. only my sisters get it. I'm way too sarcastic for everybody's liking. I'm excruciatingly shy. I've a PHD in boredom. I can bore anyone faster than you can. I don't understand why you're still reading this. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't...

    I just never know what to talk about,

    and whenever someone talks to me I always get nervous. If that person were to keep talking to me, then it'd be easier. But besides that it's difficult for me to just walk up to someone and try to become friends with them.

    I Suppose I Don't Suck At Meeting People...

    I just suck at picking out who I should be friends with, that and I find.. I lose them all once I get into a relationship. Actually, I recently kicked all my every day friends to the curb. When I became born again, they didn't like that much.. most were druggies, sex-a-holics...

    It's not really hard

    for me to make friends with guys but I really wish I was able to make friends with girls. I grew up in a area where these girls were cruel, and pushy. But girls understand more due to the fact I am a girl and it's easier to relate. Complications..

    It's So Hard to Open Up

    I have a lot of trouble making new friends because it requires a certain level of vulnerability.  I am no good at bearing my soul to people.  Even the friends I've had for years don't know so much about me.  That's why I'm here.  I'm trying to push myself to...

    None In Years

    I'm in my Junior year in college and the whole time I've managed to make zero new friends. I've talked to a few people but I never seem to make a connection with anyone. It also embarrasses me to tell people that I don't have a car or drive. It sucks that the only people I have...

    So just joined this sight,

    I lost a lot of my friends after high school because I got a job and worked so much and all they wanted to do was party when I couldn't anymore. So now I only have like 3-4friends that I frequently talk to and would enjoy having a few more

    How Do I Loathe Me... Let Me Count the Ways

    Except for a few very drunken years, i have never made friends quickly or easily. There are many reasons for this. First, I am insanely shy. Second, I am probably actually insane. Actually, the shyness is what kills me. I have trouble talking to people in the first place, and...

    I am a mom to 6 kids total.

    3 are my flesh and blood and 3 are step kids we have custody of. I travel out of my living area for and have no time meet friends when I am home. I still have Facebook friends, but really, how many of those are real? Really, I just suck at this friends stuff.

    Too Shy

    I find that I am just too shy to reach out and make friends. I'm always scared of beign rejected so I don't even try anymore. Its just not worth the embarassment anymore.

    Yeah I'm a little quiet

    and socially awkward at times, but at least I'm not rude or anything like that. Just for some reason, when I meet some new people, we only hang once or twice, then after that they just stop talking to me and I never see them again. Then there are times where if they choose to...

    People Like Me But....

    I typically don't like them. Well it isn't that I don't like them per say. But that I never want to be as close to people as they want to be to me! I have alot of people that try to get private information out of me, or share theirs, in a completely acceptable and friendly way...

    In my opinion the friends

    that you make at secondary school aren't truest or loyal friends at all since they may like to talk about other people being mean or their just two faced, from my experiences
