I Wish I Had Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 302 People

    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...

    Miss My Old Friends And Feeling Left Out,

    I've always had friends but over the past year it seems like they've all forgotten about me. We all went to school together, but since i moved away no one contacts me or talks to me at all. I feel so lonely and left out of everything. This year we all turned 21, recently...

    I really really wish I had a lot of friends.

    I'm afraid I'll say something dumb so I don't even bother talking to new people. I seriously think about it all the time. At night I'm sad that noones texting me and I don't have parties to go to and noone wants to hang out with me. I've been like this all through high school...

    Sad But True

    Is there anyone else out there

    who just feels like they need a friend? :'( I've been pretty lonely for a while now. I'm 21 years old and I can honestly say I have very few people I can call friends. I do suffer from social anxiety which certainly makes meeting new people harder, but I know I have sooo much...

    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...

    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...

    Oops?

    I had friends about 2days ago. They were pretty close. But one of them kept ditching me, so I broke friends with her, and everyone else discreetly chose her. I hate being alone, and I never have been. But now I'm spending all day alone, I'm miserable and wondering what I did so...

    I see people hanging out together laughing

    and I think damn I wish I had a circle of friends. People to rely on to go for coffee. Or have a movie night. I had that a while ago but everyone ended up moving away. Maybe that's why I sit and watch this silly show so much. They all support each other. Even when they're...

    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...

    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...

    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.
