    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.

    I have about 3 friends

    but I don't see them that often and I can't call them anytime I want if I need to vent. I feel lonely and don't really consider them friends. I don't go out much and I do a lot of things alone I wish I had just one best friend to talk to and do fun things with at times. I wish I...

    Being a mom of 3 kids (13 yrs,

    2 1/2 yrs, & 8 months), I actually don't have time to go make friends. I have more online friends than I have in person. I hate not being able to hang out with a girlfriend, but they all live hours or states away. It sucks a$$

    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...

    Everyone needs some good ol' Friends,

    the kind you call at anytime and they know what you will say before you say it..the ones that show up at your front door in pajamas uninvited because they just miss you or feel like, trips to the store are never lonely, a meal is never solo, camping fires have karaoke singers...

    Five years ago I cut my friendship off with my

    main "close" friends. I never felt accepted in the gang, there was too much backstabbing and judging and... Yeah, not so much friendship? Now, five years later I realise that getting that close bond to someone is really difficult and part of me miss some of the good times I had...

    I've always had a hard time connecting with

    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...

    I live in a big college town

    and have no friends anymore. It's hard to make friends here esp with this new group of students. Plus I am a single mother and I can't go hang out when someone asks me to because there is no one here to babysit my son so it's just always us two.

    I've got just 2 friends

    both of them are my close friend. They were unknown to each other before until I introduce them & now they're more close together, & I'm kinda unknown sometime. whenever I meet both, I feel ignored from them.

    A couple of months ago I was happy.

    I had a wonderful best friend, and we were so close we were practically sisters. I miss her a lot though. One day she didn't talk to me at all and we go to different schools so the only way of communication is my phone and her boyfriend! Well I couldn't get a hold of her and I...

    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'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 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.

    2 years ago, I was friends with the popular

    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 seems like it's always my fault at loosing

    people. And it's not because people give up on others way too much and don't see their good side. I really want someone or group of close friends in my life man. What do I gotta do? It sucks not having any BROS, no gf, **** is getting outta control.

    but the ones I do have mean the world to me. Sadly though, I don't feel like I can express how I'm feeling to anyone I personally know. I find it so difficult incase they freak out or worry, or even if I end up being stabbed in the back for opening up to someone. I've dealt...

    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.
