    I wish I had some close

    and true friends who would understand me, care for me and love me as I am, friends I could really relate to, friends to have wild, crazy fun with. Even one friend like this would be enough. I don't need many. I had two amazing friends at school but they live too far away now...

    Ever since me and my ex of 3 years broke up I

    lost most of my friends. I spend most days secluded into my room and if I go out I'm with my family. I wish I had more friends I could talk to and hang out with.

    I miss how close we used to be.

    It's hard here being without you. people are going to change no matter what and leave you because they think you're too cool for them. So .. Obvs They can't trust you. we were best buddies, just because of some backstabbing ******* who created misunderstandings between us...

    I'm Shy, So I Shouldn't Be Surprised.

    I'm not the most out going person. I get really shy around people I don't know. I also lost my best friend in a car accident several years ago. I just haven't had the personal energy to find more friends. Every "best friend" I've had has eventually left me out in the cold, so...

    Close Friends Or Not

    My experience with the word "friend" is that everybody is not your "friend". I have been through **** with people who I thought were my friends. Personally I don't want or need a lot of friends. I have 3 friends. If you want to be my friend you are going to have to prove that...

    I recently moved to New Orleans

    and I haven't made any close friends. I'm 40 and I would like to meet people around my age who have similar interest. Where are all the grown ups in New Orleans??? I can't just go to a bar and pick up friends.

    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...

    Even as a child I never really felt as though I had any true friends. I gained some and I lost plenty. Why? I always wondered why me? I try so hard to be kind and caring towards other so why aren't I more likeable. I do have a few friends I speak to regularly but I always fear I...

    Right now, I don't think I have a "best friend"

    it's been about two years since I've had an actual one. I must say, it isn't all that bad. No more drama! & you get to focus on more things, always got to look at the bright side of every situation!

    who are more like family. Four years ago I moved from Scotland to California, I have no family here and anyone I've got to know has moved too far away to hang out :( Any girls from SoCal?

    I Don't Really Have Any Friends...

    I know why I have no friends. Because I am not a very social person. I have always liked to be alone. That way no one can hurt me. Survival instincts from childhood, I'm sure. The friends that I've had over my many years of life, still consider me a friend, but they NEVER call...

    It's not that I wish I had more close Friends; it's just I wish I had a FRIEND!!! I know the saying " To have a friend you must be a friend" it's B.S. In my 50 years I have gone out of my way to have friends just to be used or be made a joke of.

    I Thought They Were Close...

    I had two true friends but one moved and I barely speak to her and the other doesn't seem to care or have the time of day unless it's about her. Whatever I invest in friendships I rarely get back. Makes me feel very disposable.
