    I was posting on a Facebook group I was in a few days ago saying that I was under a lot of academic pressure, felt a bit isolated and felt that I had 'no friends'. This sort of was in a rant form as I was so stressed.One of the group members sent me a private message on Facebook. They said to me 'you do have friends and you can talk to me any time'.

    I am not fully sure that i have interpreted this correctly but do you think that this person considers me as a friend? I am just a little confused as they didn't say 'I am your friend' explicitly. Do they consider me as a friend or just someone who can talk to them. Also, what would be the difference between a friend and someone who can talk to another person without being friends?

    This is about a different message and a different person. I struggle to interpret any messages that I receive that are not objective.

    It could be a couple of things. They could just be showing you some support, and showing you that at least one of your friends reads your posts etc. Another thing it could be that they are a fixer, and wish to help you mend it but in their way rather then yours. It just depends on the person.

    If you are feeling stressed, aren't we all, then take a break and do some exercise/something fun to take yourself away from it for a few hours, then come back to it.

    PS I should take my own advice. RFLOL!

    Yes. 100%. When they say "you do have friends" , it means including themselves!
