    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...

    Can someone please tell me how to meet people?

    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...

    I am because I have no other option

    but to be. Being alone is less painful than being lonely.

    I have been told by therapists

    and others that it feels good to accomplish/do things by yourself. You get a sense of pride or whatever. While I do not completely disagree, after a while, to me at least, that the novelty wears off quickly when you have to do/accomplish everything alone. Today, after work, I...

    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.

    What's it for? What's it all

    even for? Every little thing I do, careening - HURTLING - hurtling towards what? Nothing, it seems. I use to feel a sense of fulfillment most of the time. My job as an electrician gave me fulfillment. Just knowing that someone now had working heat in their home, having fixed...

    Will It Ever Cease???

    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...

    Ultimate Denial And Absolute Truth

    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 very lonely. I often feel alone

    even with people around. I'm scared of the future and wish things were much easier. My anxiety and emotions are killing me. Tired of this dark sadness and crying. Lord help me.

    When i say im lonely,

    i mean that i feel detached from the world. I dont belong anywhere. Im trapped in a cage, waiting to be let out. But it appears i may not be let out. I dont know if its my lack of friends, or my failure to acquire the one i love, or even my family that leaves me astray. But i do...
