I Wish I Had More Close Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 48,303 People

    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 have this friend ,

    that I've known for seven years but really got to know her for the last 5 years ; I would consider her my best friend. But she has this problem ( i don't know if I should refer to it as a problem ) where she thinks she's better then everyone. Because she goes to this hot shot...

    2 years ago, I was friends with the popular

    people in my year. Started high school last year and we all split. I became friends with this girl from my intermediate, but she was known as the loner, she smelled a bit funny & was socially awkward. She was the only girl in my class that I knew, so obviously I befriended her...

    I've always wanted a close friend.

    Someone who is completly reliable and someone who would devote as much as I give to them, to me. I realize this is far from possible but hope keeps me strong. The hope that maybe there is a single person out there who thinks "this guy is amazing, I love his pressence." However...

    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.

    Every close friend I've ever had has left me.

    They've either told me they don't want to be friends anymore, out of the blue and by text, or just started to ignore me and every message I send.

    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...

    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

    Do you ever get like "friend crushes" on people?

    I haven't got a many close friends,

    but the ones I do have mean the world to me. Sadly though, I don't feel like I can express how I'm feeling to anyone I personally know. I find it so difficult incase they freak out or worry, or even if I end up being stabbed in the back for opening up to someone. I've dealt...

    I'm sick of sitting in the bathroom at lunch.

    I'm sick of everyone avoiding eye contact with me when the teach says "pick a group". I'm sick of being laughed at for sitting alone.

    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.
