SEND TO A FRIEND:

    I?ve been under a very large rock

    or sorts, and my phone has been glitchy. Haven?t been in contact with people for a while and i think i lost my best friend on the way. It?s stupid really, the few people i actually care about in my cynical and psychotic nature, now i think she?s gone. She?s happy i guess, she?s...

    losing another person.

    .. I guess im just incapable of maintaining actual relationships with people. wow I'm pathetic... but yet I don't feel sorry for myself because in the end it's probably my fault. anyone know how to get rid of feelings?

    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.

    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 wonder alone through a world full of

    distractions that I cannot allow myself to become involved in. I want so much to be seen. To be talked to but nobody sees me. I park by the orange man and walk the street watching people. Loosing all your friends ... Sux. Feeling alone. Is anybody out there?

    Wouldn't it be nice to have someone pick up

    the phone when you call them and that could hang out with you and do all sorts of things with you without you having to plan it days or weeks in advance...

    I've been in college

    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.

    Whenever I take the time to allow myself to be

    known, to like a person and just as I think they are a good friend. They distance themselves and act like I'm crazy. I really have lost faith in humans. Their friendship depends on whether being around, with or even talking to you has something in it for them. All my life, I...

    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've had enough of those fake friends

    who pretend they love you and care for you but as soon as they get what they want from you, they dump you. I want real friends the once who would do anything for you, care for you, think of you most of the time, get happy when they see you happy, and get sad when you're sad. I...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I'm not even sure if he's my friend

    or not anymore. My friend ignores me most of the time and rarely comes up to me, three times a week at most. But when he does talk to me, he seems like a good friend. Sad thing is he's busy with girls being attracted to him ( lots of girls in my grade crush on him ). The...

    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...

    It kinda sucks because in Highschool

    and even a little bit of college, I've always had a cool group of friends. In highschool I had my group of girlfriends and in college I began to hang with a group of boys. We all became close. Now, its just me and my boyfriend, and it sucks because sometimes I want to go out and...

    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.
