I Wish I Had More Close Friends

    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.

    Its weird i was pretty close with 3 friends in

    school but as soon college started we all drifted apart. Guess its been 3 years without a proper friend to talk to i just cope by talking to people online its pretty helpful. I do miss going to the cinema, going for walks, messing about. I think that's why i miss having friends...

    I've been in London for 6 years now

    and since I moved I cut off all contact with my close friends and family. I'm an introvert by nature, not sociable in the sense I open up to people straight away and I guess this hasn't helped. I'm looking for a small number of close relationships with like minded people.

    that would be called friends but yet I can never speak my mind or tell them my deepest secrets. I'm alone.

    When you are sitting at home looking at Facebook

    I feel like nobody cares to show interest in

    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.

    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

    At the moment, I don't have any at all.

    It's strange, because I have friends. And we hangout daily, since we are all college students. But it just isn't as deep as I would like it to be. And sometimes I feel as if I'm just going through the motions. I talked about a bromance in another one of my posts. And I guess I'm...

    I hate how everyone my age has a 'best friend'

    when I've never formed a relationship strong enough for that. My high school experience is ending and I have yet to find a meaningful connection with anyone. These are not my 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.

    I've moved often throughout my life.

    This, along with my natural introversion and some trust issues, has lead me to a place where I don't have many 'close' friends.

    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.

    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.

    We just moved in with each other last April. When that happened I dropped all my friends and moved on.. And now, I kinda regret it. I don't go out anymore or hang out like I used to. Miss it

    I've always had a lot of friends,

    but no one I'd ever call my "best friend". I feel like that's odd for someone my age. I don't mind it, but I would like someone to be particularly close to in that manner.

    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.
