    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...

    ''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...

    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 used to have a lot of friends in high school.

    Then once I graduated. I focused on college and now on my career, while others partied, got married, or had children. Now at 24, and out of school I feel so lonely. I need friends. 4th of July is coming up and... I don't know what to do. Something as simple as having a BBQ is...

    One Person

    Sometimes, one person can give you the strength to get up in the morning. One person can put a smile on your face. One person can stop you from making the wrong decision. One person can make your life so much better. One person can stop the tears for a day. One person can give...

    Hey, I am new to this ExperienceProject

    and found it accidentally where apparently you can share your thoughts/feelings/experiences. I guess loneliness is a subjective experience. In my case, I have family, a couple of good friends and a partner. However, I feel super lonely and emotionally disconnected from them. 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.

    Why are men so superficial

    Ultimate Denial And Absolute Truth

    For the first time for

    so long, I'm not. For the past year, I've dreaded the fact that I was a very lonely person. This was due to the fact that I don't have my own group of friends walking with me everyday. And that I don't have that someone who I can go to for my problems. Don't get me wrong, I...

    Nobody talks to me. I feel like I'm invisible. I was cleaning up while my coworkers and managers were all chatting to each other and I just felt very lonely. I looked at myself and see that I'm at one side of the place by myself while everyone else is all gathered happily at the...

    Send the crowds away,
