    Im relatively social

    but my group of friends has fallen over the years due to drifting apart and moving and what not and now I dont get out nearly as much as I want. It drives me crazy when I am in the mood to get out and socialize and nobody is available.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 just can't seem to connect to anybody on any

    sort of deep level. The one thing I'd really like, the thing I've always wanted, is a best friend. Even though I want deep friendships so badly, I sabotage myself by putting up boundaries and basically preventing vulnerability in any way can, and I don't know how to stop. I want...

    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.

    I can never have close friends.

    2 years ago, I was friends with the popular

    people in my year. Started high school last year and we all split. I became friends with this girl from my intermediate, but she was known as the loner, she smelled a bit funny & was socially awkward. She was the only girl in my class that I knew, so obviously I befriended her...

    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...

    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 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.

    so that I can rant to them about how I feel and not worry about annoying them, but I don't so I keep everything in and keep quiet when I just want to scream.

    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...
