    When I was younger me

    and my school friends would always call each other best friends just like any other little kid does. The thing is, just because we said we were doesn't mean we were. We weren't that close with each other so I wouldn't see why. Obviously being a couple years past that I have no...

    I wish that they would listen and give advice when needed. I wish they would love me no matter what, unlike everyone else. I wish we could talk for hours and never get bored or mad at each other. I wish we could cry together and help cheer each other up. I wish we could act...

    What I really miss the most,

    is being able to say that I have true friends. Best friends. A friend. I miss the feeling of being able to stay at a friend's house whenever I get bored, talking about everything and anything to, to be able to be myself when I'm around them. I miss joking about in inappropriate...

    Levels Of Friendship

    This is something I've been thinking for a while and it helps me to know who are my friends and what kind of friends they are. Some people divide friendship in just one category: friends. But it is unjust to say all the people you know are your friends. There are best friends...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    It hurts to have nobody

    who has you on top priority in their priority list. To have people who dont even acknowledge your existence. To be alone. It hurts not to have a true 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.
