I Wish I Had More Close Friends

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

    Like there are so many kids at my school who I would love to be close friends with but I don't want to seem creepily interested or overly friendly. But people are just so interesting! It happens especially with people who I hear things about, like that they are depressed or have...

    Real friends, not just people

    who want to have lots of friends to be "popular", I would rather have a small group of close friends than have a massive group of "friends" who don't really understand you XP

    I find that I invest a lot of time

    and effort on building relationships with others. Most of the time, the behavior is not reciprocated. Deep down inside I know that the person is not sincere. However, I make excuses for their behavior, ignore their behavior or justify their behavior. I enjoy being nice towards...

    Those who stay in your heart

    or mind even after they've left, they're your close friends no matter how much they've hurt you ok. Don't hold a grudge let it go. Why? Because you both experienced something that you and your friend have both imprinted in both of your hearts and minds due to the experience.

    Its an easy thing for me really

    but having lots of friends is just like having lots of clothes in your closet. There are lots of them but just few are useful. Right? But at the same time you just cant throw them that easily cuz you know at the back of your mind they were part of your memories...

    In summer 2012, I moved to a new country with

    my family. I was looking forward to starting school and meeting new people. I was very social and not shy at all. First day of school of that year(grade 7), I met someone and she became my best friend. It was so much fun being with her! Let's say her name was Kendall. So Kendall...

    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.

    Its hard for me to gain friends in general.

    Those times I do make a friend, they end up leaving me like everyone else. I wish people would like me because once they get to know me, they'll see that I will be there to help them through there hardest times.

    My mom died in May of this year.

    And it was probably the best thing that could happen to me. My mom wasn't a bad person. She got sucked in by a narcissistic sister and pretty much cared much more for her than I. I've let that stuff go. It's not an issue. Thing is, I've been very sheltered all of my life. And...

    I wish I had a best friend.

    Most of them end up back biting or having a wwwIII with me for the silliest of fights which would be resolved just by talking but they decide it's best to not talk and then erupt all at once. It's difficult to go through life with no one to support you. I want someone who won't...

    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...

    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.

    what I write, or what I feel... Or at the very least have a conversation with me... To be honest I joined this website to make friends and share experiences with people who have been through similar things... But I guess im on the wrong website.

    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.
