    My husband is a good man,

    but I am so lonely. We are stretched thin financially so that I can stay at home with our son for a few years. I really do love him, and I am by no means perfect, but we don't connect. He comes home every day grumpy because one person at his awesome, well paid, well respected...

    Loneliness Is ...

    Loneliness is like a void, a black pit of despair filled with heartache and longing. Loneliness is a gateway to temptation, it's doors forever guarded by a pair of desires. The desire to be noticed and the desire to be needed. Loneliness is standing in a crowded room, a mind...

    I'm not alone. In fact,

    I'm madly in love with my girlfriend and have an awesome family. But.. I don't have any friends. The ones I did have all moved out of tone together. I'm in college, so it's not like I'm LITERALLY alone. I'm always surrounded by people. But.. I can't talk to them. They won't talk...

    When Did Loneliness Become A 4-letter Word?

    Never tell someone you’re lonely. If someone asks you how you’re feeling and you say fine, although a bit lonely, be prepared to have them either laugh at you, berate you, ignore you or turn away. Why is being lonely so wrong? I’m very lonely and frankly, I hate it. I...

    Soul Destroying

    Lonliness is a feeling of emptiness, an alone feeling of helplessness. No one to give you tenderness, in wanton times of neediness.

    ''Right now, there are people all over the world

    who are just like you. They’re lonely. They’re missing somebody. They’re in love with someone they probably shouldn’t be in love with. They have secrets you wouldn’t believe. They wish and they dream and they hope, and they look out the window whenever they’re in the...

    Ultimate Denial And Absolute Truth

    November 19. Accepting Our Feelings.

    Why do we struggle so with our feelings? Why do we work so hard to deny our emotions, especially concerning other people? They are only feelings! In the course of a day, we may deny we feel frustrated in reaction to someone who is selling us a service. We may deny that we...

    Isn't It Shocking?

    Flipping through the stories on the website, I come across so many lonely people. It makes me sad, because if it were up to me, none of them would have to be alone ever again. I think all lonely people should unite and start talking or mailing each other. I'm sure the number...

    I don't think my heart is yearning

    for you. Never the heart. For the heart will stop beating one day. For the heart is a part of a weak body. A body of which is fated to death. But it is the soul that yearns for everlasting love. That, I think why some people believe that love can last forever for the soul is...

    November 20. Wants and Needs.

    So many of us have been brainwashed to think that we can't have what we want in life. That is the belief of the martyr. It is born of deprivation and fear. Identifying what we want and need, then writing it down, sets in motion a powerful chain of events. It indicates that we...

    that some of us have to turn to this site to let out feelings out and talk to others we don't know? Just because no one really cares about you and you don't have friends? we live in a world full of 7 billion people and can't even turn to one person, it's terrible...everyone...

    For all the emphasis on sex in our culture,

    real intimacy is about opening ourselves up to the other person; truly being-with the other person. As a male, it is expected of me to be driven by sex. I have had one one-night-stand in my life (9 years ago). I knew immediately that it was something I never wanted to bother...

    but I'm sad to see that there are so many trolls who prey on lonely women. There are legitimate, empathetic people out there who are simply nice...but there are also too many cowards hoping to benefit from someone else's pain.
