I Want Someone to "Listen" to Me

    Significant Other Self Absorbed

    My SO doesn't seem interested in my life unless it's something he can brag about. When I want to tell him about my day I feel like I have to get it out fast or I'll lose his attention. He doesn't make eye contact. It's so disheartening.

    Nobody Knows How To Listen Anymore

    Are we so caught up in our own selfish pursuits that we cannot listen to those who need listening to? Perhaps it is American culture to never show weakness and to shun those who do, but I have never met anyone who wants to listen to someone's problems. I hate hearing people...

    I've always been the one

    that people come to for advice or to confide in. It was just like that, and i got used to it, even if my own issues weren't heard. But lately, i've become distant to those that come to me. When they come to me, I'll listen and answer and try to comfort them but I'm bored. I don...

    A Shunned Father

    Within The Right Boundaries

    I feel a lack of friendship in my life.  I need someone who wants to listen and wants to help without being selfish.  I also need someone who isn't going to turn it into an intimate relationship.  I just want a friend.

    It Might Make Sense

    Can You Do That, Please? Just Once?

    Just once, can you be the shoulder to cry on for me? Or would you rather continue to live in the world where it's all about you - blinded by your own emotions to not even realize I'm trying to scream for help? When it boils down to it, I'm always glad to help, offer a word, even...

    I want you to listen.

    Don't try to give me advice, I asked you to listen not for advice. Advice is plentiful, but hardly anyone actually listens. I'll ask for you advice if I want it. But right now people just listen, don't judge, try to understand
