Hey there, maybe you havent found the people you would click with. Have you tried joing some clubs for hobbies your interesetd in? That way you'd get to know people who have things in common with you. And just remember that the number of friends you have doesn't lessen your worth or your importance. Don't bother listening to what people think and their comments because their criticism will never end. And don't forget you'll always have friends here who care about you. Hope this helps

A lot of times the less friends you have the stronger and closer your relationship with them can be. Don't envy the popular kids who have 10-20 acquaintance "friends". My mom always told me when it comes to friends, quality matters more than quantity.
I'd rather have 2 friends who I know have my back and will support me through thick and thin rather than 20 people who I can go to the mall with.

Maybe try hanging out with your two friends more? Try to strengthen that bond and get to know each other better. In the meantime, like the above poster said, I definitely suggest joining clubs or looking into activities like sports and stuff where you can meet new people. I know it's hard to be lonely right now, but just know that people will constantly be coming into your life and going out of your life, especially after high school when you don't see the same people every day.

i don't know what i'm supposed to do

Sometimes it takes a while to find people you really click with; I've only had one friend like that in my entire life. Maybe you just haven't really found your circle yet. It might help to join clubs/sports/etc., or make some friends online, because those are totally legit friends, too! Remember that the number of friends you have really doesn't matter as much as the quality of the friends you have, and I'm sure you'll find a friend or two that you really click with someday! It just takes time and a little luck.

I agree that sometimes having less friends is better than having a whole lot of friends. I have two-four core friend's and the rest are aquaintances. I can say that I would prefer only ever have my core group of friends because I know that they care and have my back.

If you would like to meet more people I suggest that you look into clubs in your area. Either look at your school or do a google search and see if anything pops up. I know my city has quite a few different groups/clubs. Book clubs, movie clubs, atheist groups, christian groups etc. There is even a group dedicated to filmmakers.

Maybe you could join some societies and look at activities where people meet up for the sake of just meeting up. Also keep in mind that online friends can be real life friends .. and one thing to remember is that you should always have faith in yourself. You're someone who's completely your own and if they ignore you, then that's their loss.. not yours.

Keep the faith and remember that you deserve the best!

It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.

rant to me if there's anything!



As usual... pm me if you are ever having a tough day, and I'll respond immediately.

You guys deserve to be happy no matter what.. okay? You people are a bunch of lovelies ... and no matter what, you people deserve to be happy.

Friends are sure important, but make sure you make the correct friends. The number of friends you have does not matter. What matters is the quality of the friendship A good quality friendship last a long time, even for a lifetime.

I'm sorry. I get it, I have no friends }: I'm 25 and have no friends. It does suck and it's lonely and depressing.
