SEND TO A FRIEND:

    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...

    So i'm burning bridges today,

    i seem to have gotten into the habit of it these past few months. I'm not sure if its spite or i'm just jealous or resentful of other peoples lives but i'm just tired of people i try for who don't put the effort in for me in the slightest, people i thought were my friends for...

    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...

    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...

    Ultimate Denial And Absolute Truth

    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...

    most of my friends have moved

    so far away i hardly (if ever) get to see them, and the few still nearby work full time jobs too so i don't see them a lot either. living in a small town and not being able to meet anyone new is awful.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...
