Friends come and go. That is just a harsh truth about life. Not everyone we bond with is meant to be a forever person. And we have to accept that that is ok. However, there are certain ways to lose friends with swiftness. We alienate and insult, even when we don't mean to. But we also learn that people flee because of their own psychosis and we are more the wiser for it. Sometimes it's a good thing and sometimes not, but it is always... just a part of life.
Redditor u/Ti83PlusGuy wanted everyone to share all the best ways to end up a party of one by asking.... What's the fastest way to lose all of your friends?

Start dating a controlling/manipulative person. The kind that will lie to you about your friends to drive a wedge between you. middleagenotdead
Finish school and enter adulthood. SlowlyGettingFatter
My boyfriend is still friends with all of his buddies from school, they all travel cross country to meet up a couple times a year. He's 36. I don't understand how it's even possible. I live in the same town I grew up in and the extent of my communication with my high school friends is when I run into them at the grocery store, we chat for a few minutes, say we'll grab coffee some time, and then don't.

"Hi Andrew... I'm Chris Hansen..."
So this seems like a fine a place as any to push this thought into the world. Have you heard of that app Cameo? Basically you pay a set rate and you can get a bunch of B and C level celebrities to leave a video text message directly for you.
Chris Hansen is one of the options you can buy for like 50 bucks. Imagine getting the following video text message...."Hi Andrew... I'm Chris Hansen..." thestereo300
Get sick with a chronic illness... being disabled can be a very lonely thing. better-now
My last year of college my illnesses got the best of me and I barely graduated. Lost all of my friends over a few months because I was no longer able to go out with them or keep any sort of social life going. Realizing that the group I was closest with had all gotten together right after graduation to have a joint party without even inviting me was a horrible feeling to top off the horrible last semester. A year later and I still don't talk to them. Feels bad man. Panda4545

It Works if you Work It.
Quit drinking. kindamanic
Going through this now. I actually just got out of rehab for the second time on Saturday. It sucks. Especially because you know you could slide right back in to the group. It would just cost me my job and eventually my life. antialtinian
Close all those doors. You don't need those people. Addicts need to be loved and nurtured back to health. Keep a small circle of trusted and true people. As you go along your journey, you become more at peace with your own company and learn to love yourself, by yourself. And it's so awesome, I promise you that. Stay strong pal. Fetafloom
Like Britney Said...Giphy
Push them out of your life because you feel as if you're being a toxic nuisance to everyone you meet. ThatThonkingBandito
