6 Times You Realize You Have No Friends
Almost everyone goes through times in their lives where they could really use a friend. (For me, that’s all the time.) Friends are great! They help you get over a bad breakup, they share stupid inside jokes with you, and remind you how awesome you are when you forget. If you’re an introvert like me, though, you’re completely fine being alone until those key moments where you realize you don’t have anyone (i.e. Friday nights). IT DOESN’T FEEL GOOD. Hey, at least we have each other, right?! Right, anonymous internet friend? RIGHT?? *breaks into racking sobs* Here are some of the moments where your friendlessness becomes all too real:
When you check your phone after three hours but no one has texted you
It’s been a long time since you checked your phone, so naturally you’re thinking that your screen is going to be full of texts from all the people trying to get a hold of you. WRONG. You’ve received no notifications whatsoever. No one is thinking of you/needs you/is wondering what you’re doing tonight. Don’t worry, Netflix will always be there when no one else is.*
*This message brought to you by Netflix.
When you don’t have plans for the weekend
Everything is fine until the clock strikes 7 on a Friday and you realize you’ve got nothing in the works. It’s not that you necessarily want to do something, but you’d at least like to have plans that you can say no to. It’s the principal of the matter.
When you have fun plans but no one to go with you
Oh, did you get tickets to a super cool concert? And you still can’t find anyone to go with you? OUCH. (We’ve all been there.) Sure, you could go alone, but that will be a little awkward. Maybe your mom will go with you?
When you post something online and don’t get any likes
Nothing feels worse than putting up a great selfie and then… *crickets*. If you had friends, they’d like that pic even if you looked like a horse with lipstick. THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR! You might as well delete that post and go back to browsing anonymously like the rest of us ingrates.
When you weren’t invited to that thing
You’re browsing Instagram like you do, and you see all your crew hanging out at Tyler’s house without you. Guess your invitation got lost in the mail. #worstfeelingever
When you’re alone on your birthday
This is the epitome of feeling like you have no friends. Maybe you were hoping someone would throw you a party, or no one showed up to your party, or you are all alone. If you can get through this day, you’re gonna be fine. At the very least, you’ll probably have some people write “happy birthday” on your wall. Thanks, Facebook!
