No friends. - May 30th 2009, 09:41 AM

Aside from all the shit that's going down with my family right now, I'm really down over the fact that my only friend moved away a few days ago. I have no other friends left now. Sure, I've got people I talk to but no real friends. This friend that moved away was a guy so like we were really close but I haven't had a friend that was able to spend the night since 8th grade and I'm going into 12th now. Kinda sad.

The only social interaction I get is with my boyfriend and then my "friends" on Xbox Live. I want a real friend. Like how I used to have in Jr. High. We used to do everything together and then she changed and went away. Then I was left alone.

I don't know how to get another friend like that. I've tried talking to new people but everyone already has their best friend and there really isn't anyone I can truly connect with. So it's just frustrating and depressing to know that I'm a straight up loner and probably will be for the last of my HighSchool year.

I'm scared to start my 12th grade in school next year because I will have nobody there to be with me. I don't want to be alone I've been there, done that and it sucks. I'm sick of not having any friends. I really want someone there for me.

Does anyone have any advice?

I need to meet someone who gets me.

Sure. During the summer, do activities that will enable you to meet new people. Join like a sports club or something. when you return to school, sit next to someone random and start talking to them. You seem like a pretty social person once you get talking - and you will make friends in no time

hey Amanda,

Just get talking to people. I'm the type of person that has a few close friends and a whole lot of peripheraries, maybe that will work for you, too? In the meantime, just get around, and get to know people.
PM me if you need a talk

Hey Amanda,

It must be so difficult having your friend move away because it seems like you two were rather close. You will both have to stay in touch with each other and you never know one day you might meet up and see each other again. You could try spending more time with your boyfriend because that might help you to not feel so alone at the moment.

It is scary when you feel so alone. But in time I am sure you will make some new good friends. It can just take time but in the end it will be worth that time. It makes it extra difficult when everyone has already got there best friend and are off in little groups. But you never know they might like you as a friend as well. If you take the first leap and start chatting to people then hopefully things will progress from there. You have to keep working at it. Stay strong :-)

The same exact same thing happened to me, really. My best guy friend didn't move away, but he got a horrid girlfriend who hates me, so he's afraid to talk to me now.

I haven't had a decent sleepover since my 8th grade party, either. After that, they've all been pretty crappy. The only 'friend' I have right now sucks, and we don't agree on anything. My mom pressures me to be friends with her because she's 'all I have left.'

You have college to look forward to. Are you going?

I'm 100% positive you'll find new friends there. High school sucks, but college is better. I'm only 15, but my sister told me all about it. College is the best 4 years of your life, not highschool. So get good grades and make sure you get into the college you want to get into.
