I'm 35 and I have 0 friends that I can fully trust and about 4 I actually hang around with and not very often either. :( It makes me depressed.

UPDATE: I was bullied severely as a child, from elementary THROUGH high school.
I have very low self esteem. I don't know how to be "fake" and I don't know how to deal with fake people. I tend to trust people too soon and with personal things that they end up using against me. I am very bitter about my bullying and I get very paranoid when dramatic situations involving gossip come up. I am random and I tend to talk a lot, mostly when I'm nervous or I'm overcompensating. I talk so much I forget to listen a lot of the time. I have "foot in mouth" syndrome and always manage to say the wrong thing at the wrong time, I am a pessimist.

I'm 44 and don't have one single friend. I feel feel pretty isolated and lonely in my life.

I'm 31 and have 2 best friends that I've had since I was in elementary. One lives in another state, the other 8hrs away. I miss them so much. We catch up once a week. I have one close friend who lives in my city. I've known her 2011. She's cool.

I'm 43 and I have 3 including DH that I can trust implicitly.  I probably have 7 or 8 friends I hang out with casually.
