    I read posts and see people

    so deeply in love, I crave that. I've read things about people's first kiss, they sound so sweet and romantic, I want that. I want to have my arms wrapped around a girl, I want to feel her arms around me, I want to feel her love for me, but there's no one nearly close enough to...

    Ultimate Denial And Absolute Truth

    I never thought I would be one to post this story....considering I always believed myself to be alone by choice, but that was a falsified damnation that doomed me into years of denying the truth that I was lonely in my endeavors, lonely in my longing for companionship, lonely in...

    At A Low Point...

    I'm not usually a complainer about being lonely because I always just told myself I'm better off alone than with someone who will hurt me. But now, I'm just at that point where all my friends have found the right person and having a great time and I sometimes wish I had someone...

    I wish I knew how to let people in.

    I find that everything circles back to my trust issues and a profound feeling of loneliness. I can ignore this feeling, when I ignore my keyboard, and engage in things that don't matter. Songs bring me back to that feeling. I was listening to spotify, and a song from the...

    I have a hard time falling in love with myself.

    How can anyone like me when I don't feel worthy. I set my standards in what I'm looking for. But I still feel like crap. I don't want to settle but I'm tired of feeling alone and ugly.

    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...

    I'm new to this app and I got it

    because yes, I'm lonely. I'm a sophomore and I don't have many friends. I get made fun of a lot because I'm different. I came here hoping to find people who understand me better. I don't judge at all. I certainly don't have room to be judging anyone. I just need friends.

    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...

    April 22. Coping With Stress.

    Inevitably, there are times of stress in our lives, no matter how long we've been in recovery. Sometimes, the stress is outside or around us. We're feeling balanced, but our circumstances are stressful. Sometimes, the stress is within; we feel out of balance. When the stress...

    I feel so sorry for everyone who's lonely out there. When I was a little younger, about 15 and 16, I was so lonely that I became suicidal. I didn't have any friends back then, no one to talk to, I used to walk alone, handle hard times alone and just suffer alone. And the worst...
