    i'm 34, a single mother living in a city with

    no family and no friends. I don't get out much because of my son. I'm hesitant to meet new people because I end up getting used or hurt, which affects my child. so I just work and live and surround myself with my kid. But when he's in bed, I'm lonely.

    does anyone else think it's really sad

    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...

    My new husband was a single child

    and lived a sheltered life. We have only been married a few weeks now, and since he comes from a religious family, we lived strictly apart until our wedding night. All that went well, so I won’t say more about it. But a couple of days after the “big night” things began to...

    I Don't Know

    I feel that throughout all my life I've been used, hated, and pushed away from. It all starts from when I was finishing the second grade. After I finished the approximate amount of days and meet all the requirements the School Board saw my medical records and discovered my...

    Why are men so superficial

    and shallow? The models on your playboy magazines, in movies, the ideal of slim and perky; they are not a true reflection of women. Having that ideal is destroying to those of us who have no hope of living up to that ideal. Some of us have lived life and it shows on our body...

    I feel a profound loneliness,

    I can find no comfort in "I'm being ridiculous" anymore because I'm just not. My phone can't offer any comfort. I either see the evidence that I have conversations that always end with me reaching out with hardly a response or an utter of concern. I can also find multiple...

    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...

    What is true love? Love is lucid.

    Love is an idea. Love can be the warm breeze on skin under a perfectly shaded tree, or the icy breath of the wind through the crack of a window while you sit by the fireplace. People like to say that no matter what, everyone has love with them. Friends, family, loved ones. You...

    Soul Destroying

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

    I can’t always blame others

    for your loneliness. Sometimes I am the one who has separated myself. So I want do what I can to include myself again. If that doesn’t work, so what.. I will try making new friends—perhaps with some I haven’t tried to make friends with before...

    That moment when someone looks at you with love

    in your eyes. They love you so utterly and completely inside some strange part of you..... Something so distant and lost finds its way home. In itself , you begin to cry . You didn't have to beg someone to love you. You didn't have to cry for someone to hold you. They...

    I always say stupid ****

    that offends the people closest to me and then they end up hating me. Like I'd think I'm saying something helpful but it actually offends them or I think they're doing me wrong and I call them out on it.

    Ok, so here's my take on EP relationships.

    You meet a "friend", friend is cool, you chat and before you know it you're having hour+ conversations every night. .... for months. You share everything with them. What makes you laugh, what ****** you off, what went wrong with your relationship .... kids, everything. Then...

    I've been single for years now

    so it's starting to get about time to find that special woman. To train, discipline and start our journey together :-) Someone that also has an alternative view on relationships from the mainstream one.

    It's hard crawling into bed at night with no

    one to fall asleep with, but it's even harder waking up in the morning knowing you have no one to wake up for.

    Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

    Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. No one promised life would be easy, but it will be worth it.

    Ugh. I hate that I have to admit this out loud.

    I have friends, several, in fact. And a close-knit family. Even so, I feel empty inside, like something is missing. After the (recent) break down of my marriage, I was sure that I didn't want to take that walk again, to get involved with someone else romantically. Now, I...

    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...
