What Am I Doing Wrong?

I feel like nobody wants to talk to me. My real life friends don't talk to me about life problems, they just get really quiet and the change the subject when I try to bring up something that is bothering me. I don't whine about things, and I am never negative either. I can't seem to make friends who are ready to be there for me or will allow me to be there for them.
Come to think of it, I am just not good at making friends period.

If there is anybody out there who is better at this please give me some advice.

The world today is full of selfish people that only take advantage of others. I go to a school where it feels like only a certain group is willing to go out of their way and help.

I know what you mean because I have the same kind of friends. I separated from an 18 year marriage and the friends that I have known for over 20 years were the least supportive. That's when I realised that they were not the friends I thought they were. I guess you have realised that already about your friends. I now have a friend that I can share EVERYTHING with and she shares EVERYTHING with me and it is great! It took me 40 years to find that person. So continue being yourself and one day you will find someone that you connect with and have the friendship you are seeking.

I'm not better at making friends than you are but based on the fact that your friends don't want to talk the things you do then to me they don't seem like real friends. Real friends talk about anything and everything they want too. We can be friends if you want. Hope you're well
