    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...

    Everyday Is An Opportunity For You to Make a Connection

    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 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...

    All My Friends Moved.. How Do I Make New Ones?

    I am 30 years old, married, no kids yet. A few years ago my best friend moved half way across the country and since then two of my other close friends moved as well. Since then it seems like the rest of my friends don't call or want to hang out. The only friend I have is my...

    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've Pushed Everyone Away

    I have a mental disorder which causes me to push everyone away so I have no friends except on the internet.  I don't trust people either, so making friends is hard.  I also have a Paranoia disorder so that makes it hard too.  I'm extremely new to this site so I...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
