    and I have no one to relate to. my best friend and I have drifted and now we're like strangers. the only other person that gets me has kinda drifted and he's in high school. I just wish there was someone who had some similarities that I could relate to because it's been a long...

    I can honestly say I have one close friend.

    A best friend I've had for 6 years. But lately, shes been drifting away. It's something that's always been apart of her personality so I have been used to it and its never bothered me. But now that we are getting older its getting harder. We both still see each other as best...

    I'm sick of sitting in the bathroom at lunch.

    I'm sick of everyone avoiding eye contact with me when the teach says "pick a group". I'm sick of being laughed at for sitting alone.

    I'm 33 and have no friends,

    sure I have work colleagues but no real friends, no one I could call in times of crisis, no one to go out for a drink with etc.

    I'd love to not be so lonely.

    I'm not naturally friendly and have terrible social anxiety, but as I've grown up I've learned to be social to a degree, just find it tough to really connect with people past small talk and stuff. Guess that's life though, gotta keep working on it

    Over the last year I became sick

    and didn't know what was wrong with me up until 3 months ago. Because of me being sick I couldn't go out and do teenage things so all my friends stopped talking to me and I hate it.

    I mean I kinda want close friends.

    Just someone I can talk to and hang out all the time and make memories with and just have a good time. I mean I don't really have close friends like people I can just tell stuff to. They're pretty much just people I talk in school but they're my friends (acquaintances) in school...

    I've never had any friends in real life,

    at the time I was in grade school (Even in High School) I was a really shy, really timid, and really sensitive person. I wasn't open and never really talked to anyone. I was antisocial and stuck to myself and I was fine! Because when I came home from school everyday, I was happy...

    It's never been an issue

    for me to get a boyfriend... But as of friends, particularly girls it's a different story. Why is it so backwards?

    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.

    I'm honestly looking

    for someone I can talk to all the time and the conversation won't get boring. I want that to be there for me when I need someone to talk to and vice versa. I want something that will last. Message me if you want to become friends.

    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 don't trust a lot of people

    and I think many people have ulterior motives. My gut feeling is usually right. Females with females usually spark jealousy. Females and males sometimes chemistry or they think there is. Sometimes I feel alone. But sometimes I really love being alone.

    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.

    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.
