    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 really do wish I had friends.

    Not just more friends; but friends in general. When I'm not with my boyfriend I literally have nobody to talk to. I see all these pictures on instagram and fb of people with friends and I feel alone. Throughout highschool I wasnt outgoing I kept to myself and I feel like I got...

    friends, and I feel lonely. Even to I have my babdy ddy with me I can't talk to him because he say I'm stupid or doesn't understand. Then if he finds out I tell something to my mom he says that, that's what he is there for so I can tell him everything, but when I do he judges me...

    I have social anxiety.

    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...

    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 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 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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
