I Wish I Had More Close Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 45,716 People

    I have a love hate relationship with people.

    I feel the need to be around people to talk to and laugh with, yet I can't stand crowds because I feel uncomfortable around them. I wish I had close friends to talk to. I feel very alone sometimes and just wish someone would need me as much as I need them.

    OMG I HATE VERMONT! I feel like I can't relate

    to or find common ground with anyone here. I moved away from my home city of Boston to the sticks, got married, popped out some kids, and my friends did the opposite. So needless to say, we have grown apart. I wish I had people I could really confide in, and who truly understood...

    I have about 3 friends

    but I don't see them that often and I can't call them anytime I want if I need to vent. I feel lonely and don't really consider them friends. I don't go out much and I do a lot of things alone I wish I had just one best friend to talk to and do fun things with at times. I wish I...

    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 cannot for the life of me make a good friend.

    It's because I'm extremely timid. I've only had only one real good friend and that was in high school. We don't talk anymore, so that's that. There's a ton of people at my college that I can talk to, but I just cannot find myself talking with a stranger. It's painful.??

    I'm honestly looking

    for someone I can talk to all the time and the conversation won't get boring. I want that to be there for me when I need someone to talk to and vice versa. I want something that will last. Message me if you want to become friends.

    So one of my friends pretty much lives in a

    world of her own lies and when i was catching on, she basically started saying i hated her nd stopped being my friend then proceeded to tell lies about me. Im trying to be the better person but my anger is getting the better of me and i want to rip her apart.....

    but sometimes its like I'm not myself and I feel like a bad friend. I want a friend that can see things from my point of view but there's not a lot of people I could talk to.

    Five years ago I cut my friendship off with my

    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.

    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.

    that I couldn't make close friends because I wasn't interesting enough. It's been difficult at times but if I tell myself that it isn't my fault and that if I be myself and not expect too much from one person friends will naturally follow. It has worked sort of maybe not where I...

    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.

    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...
