anyone else get the feeling that they don't have any real, close friends? i feel like there are a lot of people around me that i'm friendly with, but i can't share everything about myself with anyone around me, and i lost a big connection with a lot of the friends i used to have when i left high school and began college early. i feel like there's nobody i know at the same maturity etc point in life as i'm at, and the few that are i don't have enough in common with to actually become close with. i've tried, but i just don't feel comfortable enough with them to share my whole self with. am i the only one?

      I'm a loner, been this way my entire life, I associate with many but don't consider them my friends, I do have friends but very very few that I actually call them true friends

      there are a couple of people around me with whom i share a bit in common with, but i don't really have a means of transportation to get around and the people that are near don't really have the same struggles, as in they don't have the medical issues or don't really get the lgbtq issues. and one of the biggest things is really just not having anyone around at the same point in life. i really wish i did

      I completely understand, I don't have anyone close either. 💕

      I guess the only real close friend I have is my husband. I can talk to him about everything. All you need is one person that you trust. Start with small stuff & see how they react. Then work up to bigger stuff. Baby steps... make sure you are actively listening to them as well. It sounds like you are already doing this.

      yeah, im the same way. i would try to get to the root of why you don't want to share your feelings with others. did you try to and something bad happened? did something make you feel like expressing feelings is weak? do you not know which emotions to trust? do you not know exactly what you feel? do you feel like you're the only one who has these emotions?

      This is me. It’s hard to trust people or rely on them to be there for you, so I mostly stick to family.

        @Angeldragon9 i know my family is there for me, but at the same time we're all very different people and there are a a lot of things i don't feel comfortable sharing with my family. i'm glad you have people, though.

      I’ve felt like this since I was a a teenager. It’s really lonely
