I Am Depressed Because I'm Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,881 People

    I am a 32 year old woman.

    I have been single for 7 years. I have only had one "serious" boyfriend and since then all I have experienced is heartbreak. Disastrous dates, flings, no real connection with any one. I live in a huge city where I technically should be able to find someone. I get so depressed...

    I keep giving and listening,

    giving and listening, but now I'm tired. I'm emptied out. I KNOW I should go the extra mile, love my neighbor, turn the other cheek. I KNOW I shouldn't complain so much about everything and just see the glass half full. But it's hard. Because everything just keeps going out, and...

    Thinking you've made a connection with someone

    and become close friends, then to all of a sudden have them completely ignore you without reason is a horrible thing. When you're already insecure it makes you over analyse absolutely everything you do and causes a severe lack of confidence. That happened to me lately and I...

    There is this constant heavy feeling in my

    chest. It's not painful but its noticeable. I just can't shake the feeling of sadness out of me. I feel like such a freak at times, I wonder if anyone else feels like this. I've lost nearly all my motivation to do stuff, to see friends. I think I'm at the point where, I'm just...

    I really need someone to talk to.

    I'm 21. I have no friends. No job. I don't go to school. I have nothing. I babysit every day, as I have for a couple years now. Every day it just gets worse. I feel bad for the girl I babysit because her parents don't teach her anything, right from wrong. I let this little...

    Extremely depressed. Lonely.

    No love. No sex. No emotions. Feeling hopeless, sad, depressed, miserable. Just want to die.

    if we were still friends. Her response was that she feels like we are more like acquaintances. Makes sense. She just knows a lot about my life and past, I know a lot about her and I went to her wedding... but we are just acquaintances. Maybe this is how all of my "friends" view...

    I've been struggling with depression worse than I normally do. No matter what I do, I can't do anything right: it seems like I'm scaring people away from me more and more, my creativity is just broken, and..... I just feel alone and isolated. Everyone's too busy for me, or...

    Ever wondered what it's like to have no friends?

    It is very lonely and crushing. You begin to obsess about the fact that you have no friends and wonder why. You turn your harshest critical eye inward and self-examine and magnify all flaws, searching for a possible answer. Since you obsess about it so much, you begin to feel...
