    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...

    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...

    Do real people exist anymore?

    I search and find few. I found a few in the past who moved on. I am not fond of Facebook. It seems I chat with people online awhile and they rarely give me feedback on a site like Facebook. They posts about themselves left and right yet do not answer my posts if it is not about...

    Avoided

    Have you avoided by any friend who was near and dear to you once? If you do that you can clearly understand what I'm trying to say. I have two friends or should I even call them friends, who have stopped taking to me recently. I am really putting all my efforts for making...

    It Happens Every Year

    At one point in my life, i thought i had tons of friends. I could go through my phone and call anyone and they would wnt to come hang out. I would always bend over backwards to do things for them because i thought they would do the same for me. In the last 2 years, i have...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
