Looking for Friends

by Annie


I live in a remote town that might as well be in the middle of nowhere.
We go to a small country church. I am 17 and there is really no one for me to be friends with. There are two 12 year old girls who think me more of an adult figure than a friend and there is a 14 year old that has mental issues. I have a pen-pal who mails me about once a month but I have never really been able to have someone to be a close friend with and there is nobody around. How can a find a friend or stop wanting one. And I know God is my friend but I do want some human companionsip.

hi i cant say i know what you are dealing with i have had friends but they didnt give the right influences on me. i really hope you find a friend and when you be sure to remember to pray to God and seek his wisdom about them because the last thing you want is someone to be a bad influence on you.
i will pray you find a TRUE freind :)

I don't have a friend also. I had friends before when I was in high school but they're not a good influence to me. :( Now I'm studying online at home. it's been 3 years already that I don't even have a single friend. But I'm not sad :) I have my family and God. :) I know God will help me to find that one true friend of mine someday & I know he will help you too. :) So don't worry , be positive always & don't forget to trust God ALWAYS! :)

I just have my really bad days sometimes, but sometimes it doesn't bother me as much.

Hey, I just wanted to encourage you! I too am 17. I know how hard it can be, even tho I have had friends--I never really had anybody that I connected with. I used to pray all the time that God would send me a true best friend. I also wanted her family to be good friends with mine. Well, after years of praying... almost 2 years ago... the most wonderful family came into our lives. They were almost exactly like us. :-) I hope and pray you will soon find a friend like I have found! God Bless!!! :)
