I Wish I Had More Close Friends

    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.

    I Need Some Good Friends In My Life.

    I've told so many parts of my story here & there & here again.  So, I'll just say I wasted my life, mind, & body for a decade.  I'm starting to rebuild my life again, and feel very grateful to my Higher Powers that I have another opportunity to. ...

    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 think when you survive these kind of losses

    you expect to have deep bonds with people you like. And the problem is most people are vain, shallow, and self serving. I want friends that are like family, and most people just want a figure standing their while they complain and gossip.

    I have friends but none of them are dear

    and near to me.They are more like college colleagues who study with me.It really sucks not having any close friends. I am bad at making friends.I miss my previous college roommates, indeed friends are treasure,now I realize that.

    I moved 2 times in my life.

    ..now I'm going into 8th grade and in 7th grade I was the new girl to school. This one girl was friends with this girl I was becoming really good friends with! She thought I was taking her best friend from her! (She was new to the school in 6th grade) She was so mean to me! We...

    I wish I had a best friend.

    Most of them end up back biting or having a wwwIII with me for the silliest of fights which would be resolved just by talking but they decide it's best to not talk and then erupt all at once. It's difficult to go through life with no one to support you. I want someone who won't...

    About six years ago I lost a number of good

    friends because I rejected them. At the time I thought that I would replace them with other friends but that did not happen. Around that time I was meeting new people regularly but that stopped soon after. I am now racked with guilt regarding the way in which I treated these...

    alone. But I felt like they were never with me or on my side cuz they were always chilling with other people. Now that I have no friends I'm lonely but I don't feel any pain. Is it better to be alone and not feel any pain or have friends that hang out with other ppl more than...

    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 depends on what I'm going through.

    I have trouble keeping friends over time because I've gone through so many different phases where I wasn't sure who I was. So I'd hangout with all these different groups to feel like I was satisfying that confusion. I didn't ever have trouble making friends, but keeping a group...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    friends is because my boyfriend is my best friend. And when I have had friends over the years it's always messed up because the other girls have gone on about how my 3 year relationship with my boyfriend isn't normal and I'm not meant to spend so much time with him. I ALWAYS...

    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...

    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.
