I Wish I Had More Close Friends

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29,851 People

    I feel like nobody cares to show interest in

    what I write, or what I feel... Or at the very least have a conversation with me... To be honest I joined this website to make friends and share experiences with people who have been through similar things... But I guess im on the wrong website.

    Every time my brother

    and his friends see me they feel the need to make some side remarks to embarrass me. I don't hangout in the streets all day. I don't go around screwing hoess. Sorry I'm not interested in getting shot and catching HIV. That might be what they're into but I'm not about that...

    I don't trust a lot of people

    and plus sometimes I feel like the ones that I'm friends with will never understand anything about me! I just want one friend to be there.

    To be honest, i don't have one.

    Like for real, now. Lost them i guess. I really really need someone to..well, at least be my friend? If i sound judgemental, i'm sorry. It's just so pathetic, it hurts to feel lonely sometimes. Any words? 😌

    I have people around me

    that would be called friends but yet I can never speak my mind or tell them my deepest secrets. I'm alone.

    I used to be surrounded with friends.

    . Now I have none. I cut some off, heck some cut me off! Now I feel lonely which isn't entirely bad. I don't been want to make new friends. People are so fake I can't bother

    Ever since graduating high school (a year later

    than I was supposed to), all of the close friends I had in high school have all moved on, either with college, army, marriage or kids and I'm stuck. At times I feel so alone and it makes me wonder was our friendships real or just convenient facades. I wish they stuck to their...

    friend. His name was Alex. Unlike the other kids in kinder he didn't judge me based on how I dressed or even on how I refused to let go of my moms leg on the first day of school. Years have passed since then and I've had many many friends, but as I sit here feeling miserable...

    My mom died in May of this year.

    And it was probably the best thing that could happen to me. My mom wasn't a bad person. She got sucked in by a narcissistic sister and pretty much cared much more for her than I. I've let that stuff go. It's not an issue. Thing is, I've been very sheltered all of my life. And...

    At the moment, I don't have any at all.

    It's strange, because I have friends. And we hangout daily, since we are all college students. But it just isn't as deep as I would like it to be. And sometimes I feel as if I'm just going through the motions. I talked about a bromance in another one of my posts. And I guess I'm...

    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.

    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.

    To my old childhood best friend,

    We laughed together, cried together, played together,even fought with each other. I miss the nights we'd stay up late and talk about the cute boys in our grade 6 class, or when we'd sing out hearts out to Mulan's "Reflection" on your karaoke machine. I miss sneaking behind...

    I've moved often throughout my life.

    This, along with my natural introversion and some trust issues, has lead me to a place where I don't have many 'close' friends.

    I hate how everyone my age has a 'best friend'

    when I've never formed a relationship strong enough for that. My high school experience is ending and I have yet to find a meaningful connection with anyone. These are not my people

    Real friends, not just people

    who want to have lots of friends to be "popular", I would rather have a small group of close friends than have a massive group of "friends" who don't really understand you XP

    I've been in London for 6 years now

    and since I moved I cut off all contact with my close friends and family. I'm an introvert by nature, not sociable in the sense I open up to people straight away and I guess this hasn't helped. I'm looking for a small number of close relationships with like minded people.

    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.

    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.

    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...
