    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 feel like that I'm more invested into my

    friends than they are to me. I always ask them to do something or to hang out but they're always hanging out with EACHOTHER. Tbh I'd rather have Internet friends

    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.

    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.

    For most of my schooling years

    so far, I've been a drifter. Though I do have friends, I drift from group to group and I wish I just had a group of friends whom I could be consistent with. I wish I just had a small bunch of people I could always turn to knowing that they will always be there.

    It seems that once you leave high school people

    go their own way. Then those new people you meet are just acquaintances and never fully become friends. My 2 good friend alive an hour and a half away and never come visit me. I always have to go there. So this leaves me alone quite often. Usually I then just rely on my...

    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 thought that my roommates

    and I were close friends, but when I tried to tag them on Facebook, they had removed me from their friend's lists. But, they're still friends with each other... It sucks to have social drama in my own home.

    A guy and a girl can be just friends

    but at one point or another, they will fall for each other... maybe temporarily.... maybe at the wrong time... maybe too late... or maybe forever.

    I used to have a few,

    Here's a piece of advice

    that might help your life; don't rely on anyone to make you feel better. People won't always be there no matter what you think. There won't always be a person that you can let it out to unless you choose the wrong person and that's when everything turns bad.

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

    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.

    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.
