I have 1 true friend, but he lives along way away. We keep in touch, and I think he's got a life and friends of his own.

If you exclude this fact, I have got no true friends.

I've tried and tried to make true friends which are by my side as true companions, but, they don't like me + how I behave. So I am rejected or bullied. Or, I feel out of place seeing how I say nothing to the people in the group through past experience of being ignored or told to shut up.

Sure, I have aqquaintaces, people I say "Hi" to and talk to, but they are the kind of not true friends you socialise with outside school.

I don't mind being friendless though, but have tried alternative ways round things. An Aspie friend is 1 thought, but is outweighed by the thought below.

Thoughts of an imaginary friend.

These thoughts (mostly that I dream of) are of a friend everyone can see and he is real, but is my best friend. He has everything in common with me, and shares all interests that I have.

But couldn't I bring this friend to life? Have an imaginary friend at school? Or do you reckon I'll be degraded even more and ripped the s**t out of? Also, do you have an imaginary friend yourself?

Would like your feedback.

Thanks.

I do not have one, and I have never had one.

I think I would get bored with an imaginary friend (if i had one) ... everything I wanted the friend to do or to say, I'd have to imagine, myself. I find it hard to imagine having an imaginary friend.

I think you should choose very careful as to who you inform about your friend.
(close family maybe, your doctor perhaps, or a psychologist/counselor if you have one)

Also, be careful not to let your imaginary friend take the place of any (potential) future friends that might be waiting 'just around the corner' (....you never know!!)

:wink:

Cool. I actually do have a twin ... maybe that's why i've never had an imaginary friend.

Well, I wonder if you are more likely to have imaginary friends if you are an only-child
(ie. if you have no other brothers or sisters... of the same age at least)

......having said that, I suppose it depends how well you get on with your siblings (if you have them)

:?

You could keep your IF a secret from all but your most trusted acquaintances, and then it would also be a secret friend.

I never had imaginary friends when I was a kid, but a couple years ago I created several that would appear at will in my classes and say positive stuff to me. They were mostly fictional characters. I guess it was kind of a coping mechanism. I could still summon them up if I wanted to. Summoning up Jareth, the Goblin King would be amusing. :lol:

I never really had an imaginary friend, but I would either put myself or any of my characters from a series I was working on into a cartoon, TV show, movie, or whatever I was watching. I did this with probably nearly every single show I saw in elementary and middle school. Heck, I sometimes still do this as a high school senior! However, I don't do it nearly as often.

I watch Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Does that count?

I am just like Bloo on that show.

I didn't have imaginary friends during early childhood; my stuffed animals filled their role. However, I had one between ages 10 and 12. He lived in a nice house eight blocks away, and he owned two dogs and five cats. They all got along, and I would come over to his house, and we played with the animals. I ended up losing touch with the said friend shortly before turning 13.

No imaginary friends here, rather I imagined already fictional characters (in my case, Tom and Jerry). Later, my story has kinda taken as an odd replacement to imaginary friends (hey, it's imaginative and fun, what else do you need?)

No imaginary friends, but a few nights ago I had a really good dream in which I had a friend I've never heard of.
It was created by my imagination. Does that make it an imaginary friend?
PS: It was a twin. ;)

between the ages of 5 and 12 i had an entire imaginary world that i was constantly living in, although still participating in the real world so no one knew. so i was a character, and there were about 30 imaginary friends overall. Sadly this went away in junior high. In high school i developed an imaginary friend who was based on a real person. Nowadays i have imaginary people who i talk to who sort of come and go at will...they're not permanent, just there when i need them, like when i'm in the car alone, or feel like explaining something to someone, or making jokes that no real person would ever get.

The closest thing to an imaginary friend i've had is somebody who I imagined to be the perfect friend. Never imagined they were real though, just imagined what it would be like to have a best friend.
