    Making Friends, They Make It Look So Easy..

    I always had a good amount of friends but one day I stopped making new ones. While I love the friends (though they are ever dwindling) I have now, we just don't have anything in common anymore. They want to go drink when I would rather chill at a coffee spot or they surround...

    I Wish I Had Friends

    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...

    I wasn't always like this. The past two years it's gotten very bad. I could barely go see my best friend when he was visiting from hollywood. Tonight a girl I once new in school messaged me on face book. After talking for some time she asked me if I'd like to go out for a drink...

    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 used to have a good few friends

    but they gradually trickled off and vanished. Friends moved to other states, or got married and had kids or died from one thing or another or we just grew apart. It's a weird feeling that they all moved on and I'm still thinking about the old days.

    Yup. I wish I had friends.

    Is it too much to ask for a group of I don't know maybe four or five people I can laugh and joke with? People I can create memories with? If you feel the same way, add me.

    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...

    It has been so long since I have had a friend.

    I don't even remember what it is like to tell someone everything and be told everything, to relay on someone to be there for you, to be needed and not for thing but just to be there. At the end of the day I wish I just had someone to talk to.
