    I'm just sick of fake friends.

    I'd rather be alone than having fake friends around. My best friend back stabbed me by spreading some disgusting rumors about and i lost so many people in my life. Sometimes it's hard to know who to trust.

    Friends come and go and I totally understand

    that. But I refused to have a friend that do not meet me half way. This is not a one way street. I am fed up of giving 100 percent to the people that I care about and I do not receive the same support so therefore I do not have time to deal with BS. Being alone is complicated...

    Everyone at school labels me popular

    because I associate with a lot of people however I've only like 3 real friends because others only associate with me due to my helpful nature; they use me.

    Over the years, I've found

    that most of my so called "friends" were actually fake. They didn't really care about me... Now, to be honest, I would much rather have no friends then fake friends.

    Fake friends will leave you

    so they can make new friends. Fake friends will make our conversations more brief and general. Fake friends will do whatever it takes to fit in at school. But true friends, friends that will always be there for you, don't care about their social standings, they will enjoy...

    It annoys me when fake friends say they want to

    meet up or hang out but nothing happens. Even when I try to set up the times. So I end up alone most of the time. It's easier that way.
