I Want Friends Who Are Actually Friends

    Yes

    I want friends, that we hang out, we talk, we don't just message each other, once every six months, or when the other needs something. I want real life long lasting friends, one that i can count on to be there for me, and that they can count on me as well.

    Avoided

    Friend Or Foe????

    Hello All, I need a bit of advice on a "FRIEND" It all started in FIRST grade (I'm in my early 20's now). We were BEST friends, just like sisters. We have had small fights to HUGE fights and always made up. In High School one of her friend's family needed a place to stay, so they...

    I Want Real Friends

    Since I was in 5th grade, I stopped caring for most of my friends. I noticed that they weren't really friends, just people i would talk to in a friendly manner. I only had a select few who I truly cared about since around kindergarten, but i started to isolate myself in 7th grade...

    Friends That Are Forever...

    My grandmother says, "Friends come and go." And once, I almost believed her. I made a bestfriend, she's been around for 2 yrs. We've just started to go our separate ways. So why don't I believe my grandmother? Because, I still see this as like,... a failed test. We...

    I've come to the realization

    that I must accept that I have no real friends only people that I share common interest with. There's no point in damning myself because I either lack the social skills or people just don't want to be my friend. However I do get puzzled when someone say that I'm their friend...

    Social Groups Not So Good

    Sure, I can join a social group and go on outings with others, but since there is not at least one person to relate to, it doesn't do me much good. Yeah, I have had fun and done things that were quite nice, but there aren't any friends there. I want to go out and do things rather...
