I have 2 people that I speak to on Facebook Messenger. Even though I'm not sure how long online friendships at my age last, it is nice to talk with people as I haven't got anyone my age.

However, I feel that neither are there any more. One has issues and can be in and out, he recently hasn't replied at all. The other just shows a lack of interest in conversations and doesn't seem to like me much so I sometimes question if I should bother continuing talking to him.

I feel as if I have no one to talk with now and I'm back to feeling isolated. What can I do?

I already spend a lot of time with parents. I need to be around people my age more.

How old are you?
It does look like you may need to prepare for when they both stop replying.
Perhaps make new friends

Alright, well you still have time to make new ones. You’re even on a site where most people here are your age too. So even if they stop replying, it’s always good to make a back up plan and make new friends who are more active

Update - I decided to delete one of them. It was clear that things had ran their course and he just wasn't interested.

I've spoken to the other guy recently but he keeps blowing me off, either ignoring the message completely or texting for 5 mins before saying that he's unavailable. I get that he's busy but I feel that if he cared more, he would initiate more conversations. Should I keep him?
