    Please don't get me wrong it's not like I don't

    have any friends it's just that they are not as close to me than to others. Like there will always be a person that they put above me.

    Isolation Ward

    The title of this forum is what I typed in to google because I cannot take it anymore. The saddest thing is close friends are usually formed when you least expect it, so I feel the longer I wish for it, the longer I will be waiting. I've had mental health issues for most of my...

    I'm depressed. I know I am.

    And most people would say I'm young I'm only 17 how can I be depressed?! My mom has a couple months to live, my dad is trying to send me to a shelter. My grandma is on her sick bed and she's going to go before I get to see her again. I have no friends. Like no REAL friends. No...

    I'm bad at making friends.

    I wish I had a real best friend that I could tell everything to.

    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.

    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.

    I know lots of people I could hang out with,

    problem is they dont like doing the same stuff as I, they dont understand me so I cant confide in them about stuff, I dont even trust them enough to confide in them if i could, they arent loyal

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

    I was very shy growing up.

    The first friend I had was in 1st grade. Everyone else was always happy, cheerful and talkative while Paulina and I were always in our separate tables watching from a distance. I remember the first time we talked to each other was because our teacher set us together for an art...

    I only have two good friends who I'd trust with my life and feel at home with. Both, however, have divorced parents, and have moved(thank god they stayed in the same city). My best friend and i used to play in the street and ride bikes and stuff. Then they had to move away...

    I don't like anyone. I don't know why.

    I feel like all my emotions and caring about what other people are saying are fake. It is very depressing feeling like this. I want to genuinely enjoy the company of others but I just don't. Does anyone feel like this?

    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...

    Oh Yea

    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.

    Sometimes I think I'm just kind of there,

    and that no one would really notice If I wasn't. That sounded way more depressed than I meant it too, oops. I'm not depressed or anything, but I do wish I had more close friends.

    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...
