I Wish I Had More Close Friends

SEND TO A FRIEND:

    my name is Haylee, I've always been the person

    to be there for people and to be supportive and listen just because I think that's part of being a good friend, but I've never had any real friends that stick around and actually cars about me as a person. it hurts.

    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 so hard to find real friends

    that care, and not use you? I'm putting in all the work and get stab in the back.

    I've always had a hard time connecting with

    people. It's because I'm very introverted by nature and also got bullied a lot when I was in school so I've never been comfortable around people. People keep telling me I need to get out more and go to bars to meet people but being in a loud crowded bar with a bunch of drunk...

    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.

    I find it so sad that there are

    so many lonley people out there,especially in there teens and twenties, isn't that the stage of life when you should have the most friends and fun! Have humans lost the ability to connect face to face?

    I now only have one actual friend

    and we rarely get to talk to each other. I feel so alone during school as I don't know how to make friends. What would you guys do in my situation?

    it is really starting to hurt to watch people &

    time pass by with no one to share it with. I have only ever found 1 person who I truly connected with (& I messed it up being a dumb college kid. 5yrs with an incredible gf down the drain & I lost my best friend) I've learned a lot since then though. I'm soo much better, just...

    I mean I have friends but I feel like they all think I'm annoying and weird and when I talk to them they give me weird looks and exclude me entirely from the conversation and I don't even know what I did but then other times they will be really nice and we will be having fun and...

    The caption reads "I wish I had more CLOSE

    friends". One of the reasons I don't is a matter of choice. Once bitten, twice shy. After having been stabbed in the back more times than I care to count, I don't really care to have a lot of " close" friends. I would however be a blessing to find some TRUE 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 don't know why, but I feel like I've never

    been able to hold on to close friends. And my marriage isn't so hot either. I feel like I watch everyone around me hanging out and having fun. And I think I'm a nice person. I'm a teacher and a mom. I just feel like I'm invisible sometimes. I watch other people who aren't...

    My old guy friend stopped all connections with

    me, and I think I've figured out why. Another one of my old friends are now turning against me. I think she told everyone at her band cult about my sexuality and that explains why my friend is avoiding me. I've once had a conversation about it and he said he was a Christian...

    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 more comfortable with male friends

    than female friends. It's easier to talk to men than women. I have very few female friends and usually they're older than me or a decade younger.

    So I had this friend at work.

    He was the first person I've met who told me of his atheism before I did. He was also pretty liberal and into politics so we had plenty to talk about. We hit it off really well we worked in the same department so things were good. Well I'm very good at shocking people with my...

    for two years now, and I'm hard-pressed to really call anyone a close friend sadly. I'm probably too weird and nervous for my own good.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    I thought I had a best friend,
