    I live in New England and people are standoffish as ****, I go to public places and they're all into their phones and ipad and ****. I feel so alienated. My best friends are middle aged men I meet thru work and they're typically married and a bit leary of alienating their partners by spending too much time with a single, younger woman. I should get a husband or something but guys my age are so ******* blank and have their priorites elsewhere. I am suffering from lowkey depression and need to spend less time alone but I see no way to better fulfil my social needs.

  • Why do long distance movers tell their friends that they'll see each other again when they really won't?

    When people move long distance, especially out of state, that is when all friendships die immediately. Friendships may stand the test of time, job changes, and graduation, but no friendship can ever stand the test of a long distance move.

    When people move long distance, especially out of state, that is when all friendships die immediately. Friendships may stand the test of time, job changes, and graduation, but no friendship can ever stand the test of a long distance move. Literally, you might try and plan a get together with that friend for lunch, but months turn into years, and years into decades, without ever a get together. You watch as 20 years pass, then 30 years, then 40, then 50, then 60, and so forth. And still no get together or even a possibility of one. It's exactly like that friend passed away the day he/she moved long distance. The distance is far too great and the cost of travelling that distance is totally prohibitive. So why do friends still say they'll see each other again when they move long distance?

  • Are you a loner?

    Best answer: Yes. I use to not be, but it's better to be alone than be surrounded by fake people.

    After 3 long years of dealing with social anxiety and depression i lost contact with all my friends. With the insolation that comes with that, I haven t been out much and got experience or stories that can easily bring up an interesting conversation. So I m kinda stuck, I m feeling better and want to make new friends because I remember how great it feels. But I don t know how and what to talk about. Because when I actually talk to someone it s feels shallow and never leads to anything more then a first and last conversation. So if you have some advice I m all ears.

    So I have this friend that I’ve known for a couple of months now. We are really close and she’s one of my best friends but sometimes she can be really mean with me. Like by example; she’ll get mad at me for the stupidest things ever. she’ll get mad at me if my bus is late and say that I left her alone and she’ll yell at me and get really mad at me ( it’s not even my fault that my bus is late) but she acts like it is. Other stuff that she does: she talks really mean with me using insults and very bad words, she makes fun of my biggest insecurities ( she knows that I’m very insecure about them, but yet she still makes fun). There’s a guy that I like and whenever I talk about him she always tells me that he’s too good for me and that a guy like that would never want a girl like me. Today my bus was late and she came up to me and started scolding me and insulting me, calling me a bad friend for leaving her alone so I told her that it’s not my fault and to stop being annoying, after a couple mins she yelled at me and said that I embarrassed her. Yesterday, she told me something and I didint understand what she said so I asked her to repeat it again and she called me stupid and deaf. Whenever I tell her to stop she rolls her eyes and says that I’m too sensitive, that I get mad too easily. She says that the things that she tells me aren’t mean and that I should stop getting mad. I hate having to go to school because I know that I’ll have to deal with her and the mean remarks. Carol

I wasn't angry with him, but I did tell him that he owes me $20 for my bus ticket. He seems surprised, and I'm surprised that he's surprised. He has more money than I do, and since he is the one who canceled, I feel I should be reimbursed. Why should I just be expected to give up $20? Who's right?

  • Do you have a best friend?

    Best answer: No, and I don’t believe in best friends. They are just “acquaintances” as I have been back stabbed so many times, I don’t think I will be having one ever. I use them to go out or whatever, but do not confide in them for nothing. I don’t tell them of my life and don’t try to ask them of their life unless they... show more

    I was at a party talking in a group with a friend's boyfriend who has put on a bit of weight over the past few years.

    I was at a party talking in a group with a friend's boyfriend who has put on a bit of weight over the past few years. He said he needed to get new trousers for work and I said why, he said 'look at me', then I said 'too much free cake' in a joking manner. I didn't think at all before I said it. I wished I could take it back straight away. I know how comments like this can really knock people's confidence and I would not normally do that. I see him rarely like every few months and I will definitley apologise to him when i see him. I am just wondering if someone said that to you how much would it get you down/for how long. I can't stop thinking about it

  • If my friend picked a fight with this random guy who reacted by pulling a gun, is my friend solely the aggressor and who will be charged?

    My friends and I were out having drinks and one of them had too much and got really drunk, as we're walking from the bar to our cars my drunk friend sees this younger guy and (menacingly) yells at him "WHAT THE F--K ARE YOU LOOKING AT?!?" and says "YEAH YOU! YOU'RE F--KING STARING AT ME A--HOLE!" then hesitated like he was going to approach him. At first that guy seemed caught up in the moment but then he says something like "Yeah! come at me!" pulls his gun then points it at my friend before we grabbed our friend and ran for our lives. We have a full description of that guy who pulled a gun along with his car license plate number. Is my friend still responsible for starting this fight even though the guy responded by pulling a gun and threatening to shoot him/us?

    I stopped the friendship drastically. I was not going to be her punching bag anymore. I now say hello only when I have to and I keep walking. I did not answer her text either.

    These kinds of people are not your friends. I think they act out of jealousy and envy. they tear you down so that they can feel better about themselves . They are toxic people

    So I have this friend that lives in Poland, but visits every summer. When he does, I spend a whole heck of lot time at his house and such as friend's who haven't seen one another do. But what he doesn't know is that every time I use the restroom, I urinate in the tank of the toilet instead of the actual bowl. This is mostly because I get really embarrassed at the sound of flushing a toilet. Almost as if it's taboo. This one time, his sister (who I have intense feelings for) walked in on me "doing the deed" so to speak, and out of shock, yelped and left. How do I tell her not to tell my friend and that I'm not that bad of a guy?
