I Tend to Have "Friends" Who Use Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 18 People

    Use Me, Yes They Do, Why I Tolerate It

    This story goes back 17 years to the present.  Honestly if I'd rather be dead than to have to live my life without friends.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to make friends with the Average Joe type.  The only kind of people that I've been able to make friends...

    "we Should Hang Out At The Weekend!"

    That's what my friend said to me, and I'll admit, I was thrilled that I was being noticed by a friend for once. (Oh and if you're this friend reading this, don't bother telling me on facebook that you're not like this. I've known you too long, love).And then it turns out that she...

    Expendable By All

    The title says it all. My only purpose in life seems to be for everyone I encounter to use me. I'm 19 and going into my sophomore year of college. Ever since I was considered smart by everyone in high school, I've been an academic asset to "friends." People who haven't spoken to...
