    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'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 "friends" are ****.

    They act like if I'm not even there. Most of the time I'm just listening to them bragging about how much fun they had together. Idk I just feel alone

    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.

    When I "lost" my 3 best friends two years ago I

    was kind of happy about it. I realized that being alone isn't a bad thing. But now I have come to a point where I think that I need more people in real life to meet and have fun with. I like many people at school, but I wouldn't call them friends.

    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.

    Definitely. Sometimes it's fun to be alone but,

    being among actual friends in real life makes a difference. Too bad it may never happen and that perhaps such wish is nothing but a mere dream.

    I've had enough of fake friends,

    it would be nice to have a real caring friend who will be there for you no matter what and stick by you and be long term.

    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.

    Another bestie of mine was mad at me

    for no good reason. I cared for her like my sister and maintained family relations wit her for 3 years. But it was more of giving than less of recieving relation. It was me who had to go to her all the time, begin the conversation and everything.SHe hardly was there to comfort...

    I thought I had a best friend,

    but it turns out she's more into herself and her issues then anyone else. I want someone I can share my thoughts and feelings with, someone who will listen and offer advice and not talk over me. She is always keeping secrets and ignoring me when we hang out. I always feel left...

    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...

    Okay, so over the past few months my life has

    been a rollercoaster of hell. Things like a stepdad who threw you at a door for stating your opinion, a family who always underestimate you, and just not fitting in anywhere in general. I wish that one day I can have friends who I can tell this too, and they'll understand and...

    I can never have close friends.

    Being a military child isn't easy. Everyone moves 2-3 years, less, or maybe more.

    When I go places it's usually just me

    and a close friend. If we keep hanging out a lot just us, now the family and others think we lesbian. Why can't I just hang out with my friend without people thinking like that?? Apparently I need a bf to prove to people I'm not gay? What? I haven't met the rite guy for me yet...

    I had a best friend once

    but he died of the big C. Now I have friends which serve a purpose but none that I can say im close to. There are groups I can categorise them in: *Friends who do adventurous stuff, but I don't really know that well. *Friends I've known for years, but only like to drink and do...

    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...

    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.

    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...
