I Want a Best Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,668 People

    I miss having a best friend.

    I had the best friend in my freshman year of high school. I was new to my school district and we met in math class. She came up to my desk one day and just knelt down beside me and started talking to me. We somehow instantly hit it off and we became inseparable. We were super...

    I haven't been on this site in over 6 years

    and I'm back because my confidence and self worth are faltering and I can't control my thoughts. I'm 29 years old and I don't know what is a best friend anymore, is it still the same as it was when you were in high school? I got a few handful of friends that I'm more than happy...

    All I want is someone to give a **** about me;

    to be a real friend who I can call upon for anything. Someone to meet up with and have endless things to talk about. Someone I can confide in. I should have that by now, but I haven't. I'm beginning to think that maybe I am the problem.

    I don't mind what gender/sexuality,

    I just want someone whom I can just randomly tweet/text and won't feel like I'm annoying them. I want someone to have tons of inside jokes with and someone who'll be there to listen to me rant about things, and vice versa. I've had my group of close friends since I was a kid...

    I'm afraid I'm too old to find one now.

    Everyone I meet already has one or doesn't really click w/ me.

    I never had a real best friend.

    No one ever does know my deepest darkest secret. No one knows my smile is fake. I talk and hang out with myself because I have no one. I feel invincible, I feel forgotten.

    because I'm gay. I want a friend who is a girl who will keep my secrets and who is supportive of me and what I want to do with my life. Guys sometimes just don't get me and I think a girl can understand me more than a guy. So if your a girl or a guy who can put up with a 14 year...

    I have had many friendships end badly.

    Maybe I'm the problem. It's possible-- I am very stubborn.. But let me say this: I am not stubborn for the sole purpose of being stubborn. I stand up for what I think is right. My loyalty runs deep, and I do not put up with bullshit. It's simple :). Loyalty. People do not seem...

    I just want a best friend.

    I don't care about distance. Someone to talk to all the time and laugh and cry with. A girl who listens to me just as much as I listen to her. Or a guy who doesn't just want sex.

    who I feel comfortable with and trust. A funny best friend would be even better but I am socially inept and I don't like most people. No, scratch that. I'll just get a dog, that sounds a lot better.

    I always thought being married meant you'd have

    a best friend by your side. Having a best friend to me means someone who shared everything mutually, full transparency. Not selective sharing! I find that in my marriage there's a very selective sharing process happening, on a need-to-know basis. Sometimes it makes me feel...
