    A True Friend Is Hard to Find!

    A true friend is hard to find.  Every time I become friends with someone who I feel is very close like a sister, something always happens. I always end up meeting people who have hidden motives and want to use me to babysit or to take them places all the time.  I have a...

    Just Lonely.

    Or not even a best friend. Just a friend, a real friend. Because I don't have any. I have my boyfriend, and he's wonderful, but he can't make up for the fact that he's all I have...he has friends, and I can't ask him to neglect them just so I can feel a little less lonely...

    I'm so sick and tired of this topic. So many people are crying about how they don't have friends, but truthfully, they don't want them. I spend most of my down time at work, which is a lot, reading about how folks are so lonely. Thing is, when you're reached out to, you turn...

    It has been years since I had a best friend.

    .Once highschool was over with we all started doing our own thing. One day I noticed that I no longer have a best friend. I have myself which isn't always fun. I really want someone to tell things to..Someone to spend time with. I miss it.

    I Don't Trust Anyone

    I wish I had a friend I could trust. I so desperately need someone that I feel I can tell anything to. Someone who would listen and be there for me. Someone who would not judge me for the mistakes I make. God knows none of us are perfect.

    Holding It All In

    I wish I had someone tell all my things to. Someone to help me pick up the pieces. Someone to give me advice and have it be just right. But I don't have one, and may never have one again. I don't think I can trust it. I haven't been able to in 4 years.

    I don't have a best friend

    or significant other, and as the years go by loneliness begins to eclipse everything I do. I have a group of wonderful friends, but they all live far from me, and they are all paired up as best friends or romantic partners. I'm always the one left out. If I think of one...

    It's sounds a bit sad writing this down,

    but I've never had a best friend since I left school 20 years ago. I just want to be able to go for a coffee and a chat with someone who shares my interests so there's proper conversation. I'm bored of the silence and my own thoughts.

    People can be so emotionally cruel.

    Levels Of Friendship
