I hate my friends

I've sat down to realize that I don't have any real friends. One real friend would be better than all of my acquaintances. Who has a few really good friends? How did you make them? All advice is welcome.

craigslist...post your interest in the strictly platonic section. I met 3 of my best friends there.

I met my closest friend in grade 7- we've been friends for 14 years now.
Of my other two really close friends, I met at church about 5 years ago, and the other in my first year of university.
And I consider my mom to be one of my closest and dearest friends (now that I'm 27 and smarter than I was at 17...)

Otherwise I have lots of friends, but the above four are most important to me.

I recently went through a horrible personal ordeal. This time last year I had tons of friends. My phone rang all the time. Once my ordeal hit they all turned on me except for 2. The 2 that stuck by me were'nt even my 2 BEST friends. Needless to say that they are now. I don't know what I'd do without them.

My two best friends( the old ones) turning on me at the worst time of my life was really bad. But I now realize that I am a much happier person without them by my side bringing me down. I am 31 years old. I was friends with these two since we were 15. I finally feel like I am out of high school. Let me tell you it is so refreshing!

If you need to grow past your friends you will. Keep high standards and those friends will find you. In the mean time, think of what you are interested in. If you go to the gym there may be people there. If you have a dog go to the dog park. Try to find people with the same interests.

I wish you all the best.

I have a "friend" that calls constantly telling me how great everything is in her life. She actually is what I consider more of an acquaintance except she calls 4-7 times a week. If I try and talk about any problems that I have she flat out tells me. "I am not interested in that!"

She called yesterday because it was her birthday and she wanted me to gush over her. I did wish her happy birthday, but kind of left it at that. The last year I had sent her a present, she said we didn't need to exchange gifts anymore and then proceeded to tell me how great the present was that another friend gave her - incidentally, never thanking me for my gift. Then she ignored my birthday - which I did not bring up to her. In fact last year, the day after my birthday (which of course she ignored) she e-mailed how she forgot another friends birthday, and we must get cards out to her immediately.

I usually say "oh that's great," "how wonderful," etc, on the phone, knowing I just have to put in 5-10 minutes. I just wish I knew what game she is playing, and basically know she is not my friend.

12:04 here again. I basically have 3 very good friends and feel blessed to have that many. We don't talk every day, or every week, and sometimes not even every month, but I know we are good friends and quality really is more important than quantity.
