Being Human

I just finished the British series Being Human. All 5 season of the show were amazing, even when the entire cast changed in season 4 through 5. I like many other TV shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and Dexter (among many others) but I have never felt so attached to the characters as I have in Being Human. I was wondering what draws me to this show and realized it's the relationships of the characters.
I don't really have many friendships to compare to each other but I always imagined and group of friends similar to those of Being Human. I feel like the closest friends to me never truly valued knowing me. I gave my heart to them and often found myself having to hold it back. I give too much of myself to people and it's never been returned. I'm not saying it's their fault but I don't know how much to give any more so end up holding it all back. Perhaps it's all just sensationalized writing and in fact no one really has relationships like that but why not? Perhaps I already have it and I'm over looking it... No one will fit the mold perfectly so I suppose you better make sure you hold on to what you do have. Perhaps my thoughts are distorted and I'm trying to render myself to a person rather than to God...
