I have no friends - October 3rd 2012, 04:00 PM

I'm feeling really down because I have no friends. At least not any close friends, I talk to people, but I can't get a relationship going with them. Even the ones who get close to me, I begin to suddenly hate them out of nowhere and that makes me really depressed. I can't meet anyone new without feeling bad because I'm not capable of talking to people and I feel like they are being forced to talk to me. I can0t build interest.

I have a similar problem, except that I do not have the same communication problems that you do. I can talk to people fairly easily.

Close friends don't come along very often, only once in a long while, but once you do get a true friend, they can end up being a friend for life. I have a handful of close friends, and one really close friend. None of them live close to me any more, but every time I see them we can still connect. The funny thing is, my closest friend's life path is totally different to mine, we have different religions, and if we spend to much time together we end up arguing a crap load. But, if we only meet up every so often, we are the greatest friends in the world. We have an unbreakable bond, and if I don't see him for ten years, and then meet up with him, we will still be the best of friends. That is the true meaning if best friends forever.

It took 15 years to get this friend...

I use to think: rather 1 true friend than 10 fake.
I've been bullied a lot, and the few friends I had was also bullied because they were with me. Then I became sick, and lost many friends, and I felt so sad and alone. But you know what? It's only the true friends that hang in there. And they mean so much to me.

I also have this problem. But mainly beacuse I'm so awkward when meeting new people, I just can't bring myself to say anything... and the few friends I have either never want to meet me, or have a life of their own too... which they obviously are entitled to. but still... it leaves me alone a lot. Which is bad, for me.
