    I Used To Have A Lot Of Friends And I'm Not Sure What Happened...

    When I was younger, I had a TON of friends. I had people to call when I wanted to go out, people that would help me move, people that I could call to bail me out (not that I ever needed it), and people to just hang out with. They were all the same group. Little by little, they...

    When Did I Go Wrong?

    I was wildly popular in high school. I wasn't popular with boys, but I had more friends than I can possibly list. I got a degree in theatre from a good school, but my parents lack of support filled me with self doubt and I settled for a mundane job in retail after graduation. I...

    I Think It's Too Late To Make Friends Now

    This REALLY snuck up on me. I started to realize as I was getting older that I had less and less friends, but I didn't have to face the brutal reality until just recently. I realized that my former best friend, the one who had kept me sane for most of my life, wasn't really...

    I like men and women

    as friends. I have a bad back so I'm embarrassed to go out in public. I wish I could meet some gentle souls who could stop by to visit me. I don't need religious nuts or mean, nasty drug addicts. Just some gentle souls to say "hi" once in a while. Sometimes get scared being...

    I Was Popular.

    I used to have lots of friends. I was the loud, out-going, happy-go-lucky kid. I was on the student council, I never really went to parties but I was always hanging out with other kids and just having fun... Then school got serious and not as many people wanted to know anymore...

    I don't know how else to put this: I am lonely. I have no one to talk to about anything. I feel depressed all the time. I am great at hiding my emotions and have been so good at it for so many years I don't know how to act "myself" anymore. This might be the reason I don't have...

    Disappointments

    I lost all my friends when I got bullied. They were just people who knew me; shallow-level friends. I kept with two of my friends, and in high school, made friends with a few other people who would talk to me and not be worried about their social status plummeting. But now, they...
