lost my longest and best friend after she lied to me about loosing her job and needing money for rent. I gave her more than half of my own check so she and her son wouldn’t be homeless. I later find out that she lied about loosing her job, she told me the person she was caring for died and she was in between at home patients waiting for paperwork to go through…her mom told me that the woman was still alive and my friend has been doing drugs and not showing up for work. Even calling the cops on her mom because her mom was worried about her lifestyle affecting her ten year old son…and she’s dating a complete jerk who is trying to control every aspect of her life. I haven’t heard from her since last summer…we’ve been friends since the third grade.

I’d be willing to forgive her if she honestly was trying to get her life back together, left the jerk, and serenely apologized.

I don’t think I’d even hold the $500 bucks against her while she got her life back in order, but I will not give her another dime until she pays me back.

I have 0 friends irl. My therapist noticed that I don’t have any and says I should make it a goal to get some. I’ll just go ahead and do that with my no discretionary income having sz self.

I only have one friend that I rarely see because she is so busy and lives an hour and a half away. I thought about trying to make some but I live with my 76 year old father in his teeny little 100 year old house. I have only a little bedroom to invite them to and it is so awkward I don’t even bother. We would have to sit on my bed and visit and I am a 48 year old woman.

I keep thinking about going to some meditation groups or MeetUp’s but they cost money (I am on Social Security) and I don’t comb my hair very often. I feel crazy and awkward.

I am exceedingly, exceedingly lonely. I do not know what to do about it and I have no advise for others. Glad we have this website.

sorry @firemonkey =(

I don’t think I want a really close relationship, but being able to go to a drop in to have some company around me would be nice.

0 friends online and in real life. Really only ever had one good friend, and that was back in middle school. My mom and dad are my main support. My perception of them can be a bit… askew sometimes, so I’m trying to improve my relations to them.

I have two friends. One of them is dying of cancer, and the other one is “on again, off again”. I could be down to zero at any moment.

I two good friends who I talk to almost every day. One is my partner, and it’s a somewhat unhealthy relationship. The other is my best friend since I was 17.

Other than that, I have a few online friends who I talk to once in awhile. I’ve drifted apart from most of my other irl friends, but when we do see each other we’re friendly.

I have 3 good friends but they all live out of town. I voted for a few friends and a supportive family. All three friends contact me from time to time. I’ve known one since kindergarten, another since we were like 3 years old and my other friend since I was about 14. All three have kids, two of them have families. I miss hanging out with them.

I have a couple but one is really struggling. I might have to cut him off because he’s making really poor choices in his life. I just had two come home from college so that is a +2. And I rekindled my relationship with someone else. Me and my sister are really getting along lately. She married her boyfriend a month or two ago and it’s been very happy relationship with her and my brother in law ever since. And my mom and dad even though they sometimes irk me the wrong way.
