    I want to make some friends

    who will never betray me. I just can't handle it anymore. I am so lonely but I hide it so well. It's just killing me inside. I feel terrible. I don't know what to do anymore.

    I've not had good luck with this.

    my picker is broken I guess. I've gotten to where I trust no one, which is sad, cuz I would love to have a real friend that cares as much about me as I do them and would never do anything to hurt me. I've picked some real winners in the past. frustrating.

    This group is truly sad.

    Even worse, it shows how many people need to point out that they don't want to be used and betrayed. Sadly, it happens a lot. Too much really. There are roughly 577 people that are in this group at least at the time that I've decided to post this. It's awful that 577...
