    I Have No "Real" Friends

    I don't have many friends but, the ones I do have aren't all that great. I feel like they are only my friends because I do them favors. I want a friend who will call me just to ask me how I'm feeling. I want a friend that I can let my guard down around. I just want a friend that...

    Sex & the City

    You know, what I really truly long for is the type of friends like the women on Sex & the City. The girls you know you can count on to be there for you in the middle of the day for lunch, on the weekends to just hang out in your pj's, or at 2 a.m. when you've had a fight with...

    Friendless

    I've always had a problem with finding and keeping friends. I find that they put on me a lot and they don't value our friendship as highly as I do, so I'm the one left out in the cold and feeling used and sometimes abused, when they don't need me anymore. This just keeps...

    My Friends Have Disappeared

    Today is one of those days

    where I wish I had a close friend. Like someone who I can see and talk to in person. Someone who would enjoy just walking with me, listening, or laughing with me. Do things they want to do or things I want to do together.
