I Wish I Had More Close Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 58,036 People

    I like loneliness but I feel alone.

    I'd like to have more close friends to talk to. I love music (mostly metal) and I play drums. I like nature, animals, I'm a vegetarian. Add me and we could talk! :)

    Its fascinating and sad

    when two of your friends are fornicating and they think lying to you makes themselves clever...we are an odd species. I am not saying i should know but they keep saying its different people and go to ridiculous lengths to hide its really them. Oh well.

    I met this one girl in Spanish class

    and who knew she would be my best friend. We talk about anything that's on our minds, I'm kinda glad she's my only close friend cause then you have a group and then if someone says someone's secret to for example a girl who isn't in the "group" they will have everyone hate them...

    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 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.

    I live in a big college town

    and have no friends anymore. It's hard to make friends here esp with this new group of students. Plus I am a single mother and I can't go hang out when someone asks me to because there is no one here to babysit my son so it's just always us two.

    Being a mom of 3 kids (13 yrs,

    2 1/2 yrs, & 8 months), I actually don't have time to go make friends. I have more online friends than I have in person. I hate not being able to hang out with a girlfriend, but they all live hours or states away. It sucks a$$

    I've been seeing the same psychologist

    for over 3 years. (I'll go into depth about my disorders another time) but he brought to my attention last session "You know what you've never done in my office? Other than fart? Cry. I've never seen you cry, and in my mind, for you, there is so much to cry about." I looked at...

    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.

    But having friends is the greatest gift that god can give you.

    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.

    it would be nice to have a real caring friend who will be there for you no matter what and stick by you and be long term.

    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...

    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.

    A couple of months ago I was happy.

    I had a wonderful best friend, and we were so close we were practically sisters. I miss her a lot though. One day she didn't talk to me at all and we go to different schools so the only way of communication is my phone and her boyfriend! Well I couldn't get a hold of her and I...

    3 years ago I had so many friends

    yet every night I would go to bed with a huge knot in my chest caused by the anxiety and pressure I felt being in that world. Today my anxiety is under control through the help of therapy and medication and I can't help but find that I miss having a large circle of friends. 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...

    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.

    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...
