It doesn't feel like they do. I know an absurd amount of people, hundreds, yet every single one of them eventually ends up disappearing without a word, only showing up when they want something from me, or act like it's some big chore to find an hour to hang out every few months. I'm just really tired of it. Where are all these supposedly lifelong authentic friends that people talk about? No matter what I do nobody stays around. It's been literally less than a month since the seniors at my university graduated, and already all of the senior friends I had are refusing to return messages or even just hang out one more time before they leave the city forever. Years of friendship just means nothing apparently. Everyone's the freaking same. If they can't get free stuff or entertainment from me anymore I just stop existing to them no matter how long we've known each other. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I know a lot of people, I spend time with those people both in groups and individually, I'm always there for them, we do stuff we're both interested in together....and then....they're just gone one day for no reason. What's the point of doing anything with people. I might as well just sit alone in my room all day and stop bothering to care about anyone since they're all just going to throw my friendship away anyway.
