    If you don't need friends, then that's your decision. You don't need to justify why or what reason. For me, I happen to like to my friends, online and in real life.

    Humans are social creatures. You probably don't have any friends, so you try and justify it by saying you don't need them.

    No, i had friends but they started to become a burden so i cut off communication with them and I've been happier alone since.

    It is a bit odd. Most people ultimately need other people in their lives.

    If you live long enough, you bury all your friends, so chances are pretty good you'll wind up alone anyway. Might as well start early.

    Burden in what way? By definition a friend equals support, not burden.

    I agree with McQueen's observation. Finding yourself without friends, you justify not having any after the fact. That's known as rationalization.

    You might have a point. I suppose i'm used to it now and find social situations awkward, I've coped this long without any, so i don't see why i would need any now.

    I've made more than a few friends, they made my youth fun, some have died along the way and others drifted so far off that I lost track of them or they are just too far away. I don't feel bad about any of the ones that drifted away because they went one way in life and I went another, so some I really would not want to see again. Now I'm left with just acquaintances and that is satisfying enough because I have not met anyone I want to be close friends with because every ones personality differs too much from mine. It would be nice if you could take this part from one acquaintance and that part from another and yet another part from another and make one friend that you get a long with in every way, but since that is not possible I am fine with acquaintances I chat with from time to time.

    Humans tend to do better with friends. We are social animals.

    Being US American, I used to buy into this crap about being a rugged individualist, someone who didn't need friends, or anybody.

    Strangely it was the US Army, a macho world, that taught me that I DID need others. And that others needed me.

    In combat you need to have buddies looking after you or you die. Forget John Wayne, Rambo, and other Hollywood film myths. We all need others, as they need us.

    You're 19. Your outlook will change with time, I hope.

    There is a difference between bad friends and good friends. With good friends, you actually look forward to spending time with them.

    Friends are useful as references on a job application.

    There's nothing wrong when someone say's they don't have friends...

    but, before you say 'I don't have any friends & I don't need them' can you define what a 'friend' is? I mean not as in dictionary but define by what you personally think a friend actually is.

    Or just refer to so-called "facebook friends"

    Bad friends bring you down. They make you question the idea of friendship.

    Good friends make your life so much funner.

    Sometimes, you do just want to be alone though.
