It's not weird, many people have it. However I hear more about it when it comes to children. Maybe it's your way of dealing with your own problems? Anyways I think you should ask for an opinion from a professional. But don't worry you're completly normal , at least in my view

You're not alone. The unspoken truth is many people talk to themselves and many people have imaginary buddies. Honestly some of the best conversations I've had are with myself. You're not losing your mind. Cuz if having an imaginary friend is crazy, then i guess we all are.

its totally not weird because i also often talk to myself when i'm alone because your real friend is actually yourself . but unless your imaginary friend start taking your whole life and make you forget about having friend in real life . you should seek for professional help.

Not at all. I talk to myself all the time. You are not alone in this.

The problem with your psychological construct is that it is easy to begin blaming and attributing your own behaviors to a separate entity, and that is very potentially dangerous. Making up a friend means that you're lonely, so get out and brave your fears. Make some friends, for the sake of your sanity.

I have imaginary friends too. They help me escape from the truth that my real friends don't really care that much abt me. Its normal

It's not weird at all. And don't listen to those people who said you need professional help, it's not up to anyone to decide that besides you. I've had imaginary friends for years and I find they help me with my creativity in writing and drawing. One thing that I always remember when I have doubts about 'talking to myself' is that it is exactly that - just talking to yourself. It's not an unhealthy habit or some weird other entity talking to you. You're talking to yourself, but envisioning that other person you are talking to as somebody else. All this shows is that you have a great imagination. It's good to remember that you need real friends too though :) If you find yourself shy or you're scared to talk to people, just start by saying hi.
