    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.

    It's not like I'm a outsider.

    .. It's just.. I miss friends with the ability to talk to about my serious problems without worrying they're gonna tell their friends 0.o

    Do you ever get like "friend crushes" on people?

    Like there are so many kids at my school who I would love to be close friends with but I don't want to seem creepily interested or overly friendly. But people are just so interesting! It happens especially with people who I hear things about, like that they are depressed or have...

    Since I have selective mutism,

    it's hard for me to make friends and my family doesn't understand that. They think I can just suddenly talk and have a million friends. Ummmm... No. My sister will be like "If you talked, you'd have a ton of friends." She doesn't get it and she never will.

    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...

    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.

    My mom died in May of this year.

    And it was probably the best thing that could happen to me. My mom wasn't a bad person. She got sucked in by a narcissistic sister and pretty much cared much more for her than I. I've let that stuff go. It's not an issue. Thing is, I've been very sheltered all of my life. And...

    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.

    I didn't make many friends growing up

    for various reasons and now that I'm ready to accept people into my life I've found that I'm far too late for it to be easy. Making new friends as an adult is hard and making new close friends is even harder. To make matters worse, I realized a while ago that I get along better...

    I'm not the type of person

    who really makes friends and keep them close. I wish I was that way because I would love to have people I can talk to frequently but especially a girl best friend who I can be sisterly to.

    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.

    after college. Only the true ones stay. Those once closest to you become a complete different person

    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.

    To be honest, i don't have one.

    Like for real, now. Lost them i guess. I really really need someone to..well, at least be my friend? If i sound judgemental, i'm sorry. It's just so pathetic, it hurts to feel lonely sometimes. Any words? 😌

    for about 2-3 years now, but the more I think they know me, they don't. I have to watch what I say around all of them, and to do so means I can never fully be myself around them. They get weirded out whenever I talk about my sexuality, or when I see a girl I think is...

    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...
