0. I had 1 real friend in high school, but of course after we graduated we stopped talking. Seems to be a common trend with high school friends post HS.

Only one. The others left shortly after my recent ctb attempt.
But all in all, I've never had many friends, none at school, and only one or two at university.

Most, if not all my friends are online ones, no real relationship with any of them except two. My cousin, despite only living a 20-30 minute walk from me doesnt want me around or doesnt want to come around pretty much at all, i cant blame him though he has a pretty extreme case of anxiety, but hes really my only "irl" friend i have, despite talking to him 99% of the time online. Id say if i where going to count anyone as my friends itd be my cousin and a man called Auro i met online, he lives in a different country to me but we're pretty close, we just dont talk much anymore is all.

None really. If people really knew me they wouldn't really like me.

I have like 4, but my therapist and father told me they are not really friends; just acquaintances. I hang out with them when I eat lunch on breaks but none of them seem to care about anything I have to say, so we just all sit silently on our phones a lot of the time.

Zero.

No offense to anyone, but after high school, I've struggled to use the term "friend" for anyone.

Even when I add people to my "friends list" on different sites, I hesitate to really consider them friends.

I struggle to trust sufficiently and to commit enough to maintain a friendship. Hence, I consider myself to have 0 friends.

People are trying to convince me to be their friend and encourage me to define friendship by their own parameters, but to me, that doesn't leave me comfortable or satisfied.

I'd need to have known a person for years, and for there to be a mutual understanding and respect, and more importantly mutual trust. Unfortunately, that has not been the case thus far.

Please don't be like "hey, I'll be your friend", because something so spontaneous isn't a friendship to me anymore. It's an acquaintanceship and it has the potential to still be something wonderful, but please don't tell me to view it as friendship. If I ever find friends, it'll take time, possibly years for me to be able to call them friends.

Same, due to past experiences I also struggle to open up to people and to trust them. I've been betrayed too many times and have had bad experiences with people…people have always just let me down. I don't need friends anyways.

I also struggle with commitment as well. It's hard committing to a friendship so some of mine just dissolve and fade away naturally over time. But in this case I actively pushed people away and didn't reply or respond to them, I think it's isolation in preparation for ctb and to remove myself from any attachments to this world

Never went to college, but I don't consider the friends I do have decent enough to be called friends anymore. They've turned pretty toxic.

I have one close friend but she's been struggling with severe suicidality as well, so with us both being in rough places, we've grown more distant.

I don't really have any friends outside of that. All my other friendships faded. In my experience, it's ridiculously hard to make friends once you're out of school. It's rough being so isolated.

...does texting my sister outside of town every once in a while count? well i talk to my mom too. its my fault though, i use to have few people still sticking around for some reason but i pushed them all away because my social anxiety & depression's getting worse and worse and i keep finding myself on dead ends whenever any of them ask what am i planning to do with my life/in the future i dont... i dont know. i dont know how to answer to anything. i have nothing going on with my life. which i guess is kinda a requirement to be a sociable person socializing with others
