  • I so agree with you. That is why I have no friends that live near me. :( I get annoyed easily with all the whining and complaining, that my "friends" called me to do. I dumped a friend right before Christmas because of her needyness. Now, I only have one friend and I like her very much and we have absolutely nothing in common.

  • Well the old saying is, "If you have one true friend when you die, then your LUCKY." I have 2 so I feel blessed, they are very hard to find and keep, and esp. with women, you just can't always trust them. I even had 1 or 2 that made passes at my S/O when we were younger, soon got rid of them in a hurry.

  • It may also be the area you live in. Where I live now, I don't have that problem. Where I lived before, I didn't really have that problem. Same thing goes for the place before that. It may also just be your choice of friends; not everyone has the innate skill to be a good judge of character.

  • No, you are not the only person who thinks this way. There are plenty of others out there who would agree with you. Maybe you're feeling this way because you've had poor relationships with people. I used to feel this way sometimes, but recently I was sick and found friends and family "coming out of the woodwork" to help, pray, and support me. As long as you treat people with respect and kindness, you can expect the same in return. However, don't let your expectations be too high. Hopefully, you'll find the many good people who are in this world.

  • Yeah I agree completly sometimes its best to just hang with your SO and your close family, but some family can be like that to. And the good ones always get used by everyone, I don't use people or let them use me but I found sometimes I'd rather just hang by myself its peaceful that way.
