I Wish I Had More Close Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 77,546 People


    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.

    It's so hard to find likeminded people my age.

    Most girls just want to get drunk and hookup and I'm building an empire. I thought that as I got older I would find more people in common with my values. But now I'm not thinking so. :/

    I had a close group of friends last year.

    we were practically a "squad". then one moved away, one started working every weekend and is extremely busy, and the last one got a boyfriend who she ditches me for every time. So here's my answer when people ask why I stay by myself every night at age 22.

    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.

    Friendship is a journey wether you want to believe it or not. Friendship can be as soothing as a hot cup of coco or as bitter as cold black coffee. You meet these souls and before you know it you're thinking about them while brushing your teeth one day. That's how you know you...

    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.
