I Wish I Had More Close Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 39,644 People

    I really do wish I had more close friends,

    like the ones you can talk to all day about anything and everything or go do stupid things together. The ones who are always there for you and don't care how weird you really are. I would rather have a few very close friends than many friends who aren't as close.

    It's not like I'm a outsider.

    .. It's just.. I miss friends with the ability to talk to about my serious problems without worrying they're gonna tell their friends 0.o

    I feel like I'm losing my best friend.

    I moved out last year tithe different part of the town, and now she has her new friends as we go to different schools. I mean that's perfectly okay, but she also seems to forget about me. For about a half a year she only talks to me when I initiate it. Without my texts, and...

    I'd love to not be so lonely.

    I'm not naturally friendly and have terrible social anxiety, but as I've grown up I've learned to be social to a degree, just find it tough to really connect with people past small talk and stuff. Guess that's life though, gotta keep working on it

    I've never had any friends in real life,

    at the time I was in grade school (Even in High School) I was a really shy, really timid, and really sensitive person. I wasn't open and never really talked to anyone. I was antisocial and stuck to myself and I was fine! Because when I came home from school everyday, I was happy...

    Recently a few of my friends have really let me

    down by betraying me. I've decided that I'm just done with them. But I hate feeling alone so I'm trying to rekindle my friendship with an old friend of mine. We go way back but we've drifted apart. I wonder how I can get our friendship back on track

    Five years ago I cut my friendship off with my

    main "close" friends. I never felt accepted in the gang, there was too much backstabbing and judging and... Yeah, not so much friendship? Now, five years later I realise that getting that close bond to someone is really difficult and part of me miss some of the good times I had...

    I'm honestly looking

    for someone I can talk to all the time and the conversation won't get boring. I want that to be there for me when I need someone to talk to and vice versa. I want something that will last. Message me if you want to become friends.

    The caption reads "I wish I had more CLOSE

    friends". One of the reasons I don't is a matter of choice. Once bitten, twice shy. After having been stabbed in the back more times than I care to count, I don't really care to have a lot of " close" friends. I would however be a blessing to find some TRUE friends.

    I have many, many friends in person.

    Yet I still feel alone. Maybe because they never care. Whenever I'm around them, all I do is fake a smile and pretend I am okay. I wish I have a friend whom I can talk with about everything, and who would give a damn care.

    I've always had a hard time connecting with

    people. It's because I'm very introverted by nature and also got bullied a lot when I was in school so I've never been comfortable around people. People keep telling me I need to get out more and go to bars to meet people but being in a loud crowded bar with a bunch of drunk...

    Do Real Friends Exist?

    Why is it that its hard to find a decent trustworthy friend these days? I can't confine in no one, everyone seems to be selfish. I can't find not one person where the friendship can be equal. When I have problems or need to vent no one seems to care nor listen yet when they have...

    My best friend (former now) would use me

    for a ride. She'd never want to talk or hangout unless she needed something from me. Now I'm without a best friend or even a close friends and I see people post all their happy days with their friends on Facebook and I'm sitting at home all alone.
