I Wish I Had More Close Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51,078 People

    I'm gonna be 40 and I have never had a bff in

    my life, male or female. I know lots of people. I just don't have one or a few that I can refer to as friends.. I feel fine most days about not having friends but now and then a thought would creep in and remind me that I don't have friends. Is this normal?

    anything. I don't mind gender, age, race, I just want to talk :)

    Sometimes when I'm by myself,

    I sit in my room with my cat and just talk to her. She actually listens quite well.

    I don't like how people only want to respond

    or text when they need something. Just seems the word friend is not a two way street. Sometimes being nice just leaves the door open for these kind of things I guess.

    A guy and a girl can be just friends

    but at one point or another, they will fall for each other... maybe temporarily.... maybe at the wrong time... maybe too late... or maybe forever.

    URGENT! My friend hasn't been to school in

    six weeks, she deleted herself from all the websites she was on, and she won't respond to any texts or calls. She's one of those people that could be in BIG trouble, and I'm talkin' mental institution, or she's in hiding trying to get away from a relative. None of the...

    All of my close friends are just people I've

    known since elementary or middle school, and there's never really been new people to be friends with. My supposed friends will do things like not invite me to things they do or none of us will ever hang out. Recently, I've been trying to hang out with other people and meet new...

    I made numbers of close friends in my life

    but a vast number of them choose to stay away of me or they are just ignoring me like someone they know in the past. I know I made a lot mistake, and sometime I'm over acting but, is it enough not to talk or even greet me .. Now, almost of all of time I spent alone .. no one to...

    Most of the friends I grew up with have moved

    on to start lives with other people and we've lost touch. I believe I'm a great friend and I'd like to be able to call on, hang out with, travel with, and spend holidays with people who know and love me.

    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...

    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...

    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'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.

    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 thought I had a best friend,
