    Only Have Like 3 Real Friends...1 Here 2 There

    I used to think I was so lucky because in my world I had so many real good friends but just because I've known someone for a long time does not make them a real friend. It sucks because when it comes down to it and you need them there to have your back they won't. People...

    I'll Keep Trying!

    Although I seem to attract more fake friends than real friends, I'll continue to look for real friends.

    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...

    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...

    I have very few, if any, friends.  Its sad really.  Its a bi-product of my sobriety.  All of my 'friends' were heavy drinkers or drug addicts.  If I go back to those friends I go back to the street.  Finding new friends is hard for me, but it would be...

    My Friends Have Disappeared

    Don't get me wrong, I have a handful of friends that I wouldn't trade for the world.  I just wish there were more of them.  So many times people are less interested in a real, honest friendship, and more interested in what they can get out of befriending others.  I...

    I Just a Couple of Friends Could Make a Difference

    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...
