    Loneliness Is ...

    Loneliness is like a void, a black pit of despair filled with heartache and longing. Loneliness is a gateway to temptation, it's doors forever guarded by a pair of desires. The desire to be noticed and the desire to be needed. Loneliness is standing in a crowded room, a mind...

    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...

    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...

    Nobody knows the real me.

    Nobody knows how many times I've sat in my room and cried, how many times I've lost hope, how many times I've been let down. Nobody knows how many times I've had to hold back tears, how many times I've felt like I'm about to snap but I told back for the sake of others. Nobody...

    I am 62 and I feel very lonely.

    I have children and grand-children that I am very grateful for and I thank God. But... I am missing a partner to share my life with. Even though I am 62, I still feel the same way I did when I was young. I just don't understand where all the years have gone. :(

    I love making people happy.

    But I can't seem to make myself happy. I feel lonely all the time even though i have friends. I just don't have anybody to really talk to anymore.

    September 1. Patience.

    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...

    There's always a little truth behind every

    I will die alone. And that's fine.

    I moved to Canada from a third world country, with my wife, when I was 30. Two years later our daughter was born. Soon after, my wife changed radically. She became, frivolous, materialistic, shallow, insecure, and her sense of logic just wasn't there. She became the opposite of...

    Soul Destroying

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