    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.

    i'm mentally exhausted.

    . I don't even know how to feel anymore... I don't know how to explain it to anyone either... But it's like the pain and the loneliness starts to feel good for a while and then it just disappears and you begin to feel empty. I'm not sure if i'm making any sense....

    I've found myself sitting in front of my

    computer the whole day again. Feeling a bit stale, i left my house to take a walk. Took a trip to the harbor, then back home. This pretty much describes my life. I have some friends that i occasionally hang out with, but that doesn't happen that often. I never had a problem with...

    I'm so lonely I'm going crazy.

    Anyone just want to chat? I'm not "looking for" anything. I just want a conversation, I'm tired of the games some people play on this site. Yes, I want to talk with someone, yes I want to be honest, no I don't want to get weird.

    I see your problems and I wanna reach out

    and say it'll be ok but words are meaningless when your feelings cut deep. My presence is what I'd like to give you, but the distance between us is to much to keep.

    Why do I want my ex back all of a sudden?

    He cheated on me. I kicked him out. But now that he's given up fighting to come home to me and the kids, I miss him. Nearly two years down the line. Why is that? Do I really? I just feel sooo emotional all of a sudden over him - it's so weird. We had 10 great years...

    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...

    Everyone has left. It's not entirely true - but it feels like it. I guess it's true that I have no one close to me anymore. And it's really taken a toll on me. There's a reason that so many of the twilight zones focus on the impact of isolation. And now with the long weekend...
