I don’t think I have any friends online. What I have are acquaintances who aren’t willing to give much…I had one online friend, but she pretty much cut me out of her life after her divorce : ( I never got an explanation.
Sorry that happened to you. That was really mean of her to stop speaking to you for no apparent reason.
This twitter should be renamed, “Things no one will ever say to me”
That’s not the point though—I need people to hang out with.
I know it’s not the same as being with someone in person, though It is nice to chat with a friend online or on the phone. But when you just wanna go out and there’s no one…it’s a crap situation all around.
Um…yeah. It is. Technically I do have friends, they’re just not in my life anymore, yet the friendship isn’t officially over. I have two friends I’ve had since childhood, but they’re not around anymore and haven’t kept in touch.
Have you tried contacting them? they might be happy to hear from you if the friendship hasn’t truly ended.
I think because they’re assholes, but that’s just my opinion.
They probably are though. Are you a quiet person in real life? They likely mistake that for rudeness, and hate you based on nothing. In my experience, shyness is always misjudged as snobbery.
That’s great…it seems like you do have friends though, they’re just flaky. I literally have none.
Up until a few months back, I did have two really good friends, but they moved to another state. We still chat on Facebook from time to time so I guess I do have friends, only it’s long distance. I’m really sorry that you don’t have anyone though :( that must be difficult to go through.
I actually dread a new job because not only do I not expect to make friends, people often don’t like me and it makes work unbearable.
That’s really awful :( Why don’t people like you? The kids at my work probably think I’m a freak, they’re all loud and active with school clubs/sports and don’t take the job seriously. I’m just the quiet, weird older chick. The social aspect of work does make it more stressful.
I looked at it, but it seems like bullshit, at least in my area. Ugh. I just wish I could change having no friends. I wonder if it’s all over after college, no more friends ever again in your life.
I always wondered about that too. But then I see examples from my life where people have been able to start anew and make new friends. Like my sister, who moved to a different state in the beginning had no friends (save for her boyfriend) but was able to create a group over time. However, she is an extremely outgoing person so it’s no surprise. I fear that for those of us who are introverted or suffer from social anxiety, the chances of making friends are slim to none.
