    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 learned something really frightening about

    myself this weekend: I am fundamentally unhappy. I'm missing something totally non-negotiable in my life. I need people who will be my lifelong partners/collaborators/family. I need soulmates. I need a community. I need to be 100% invested in fellow human beings who are 100...

    I'm very outgoing, I love everything about my

    life. I'm optimistic. But I'm so sad and lonely, it's as if I spend all my energy and am just left as this... I feel as if I am missing something. I'm so alone. I just want to reach out to someone, but I can't find it in myself to do it when I'm like this. I don't know who to...

    I Don't Know

    I feel that throughout all my life I've been used, hated, and pushed away from. It all starts from when I was finishing the second grade. After I finished the approximate amount of days and meet all the requirements the School Board saw my medical records and discovered my...

    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...

    My birthday is on the 10th.

    A few months ago, I had a bunch of friends. I don't really know what happened, but I barely talk to most of them now. One of my friends is suicidal and I've helped him through it many times. I was the one that stopped him from killing himself on more than one occasion. Last...

    Another lonely phase.

    Socially I am not alone, I have many people in my life who care for me and I am so grateful for them. It's an emptiness that no amount of people could fill, internal and emotional. I feel so broken and I don't know why

    No matter how many people I'm around,

    I'm positively alone. I can't really be myself in the real world, people really judge in the real world. I'm just a freak in real life. Everything that happens to add up be me, also happens to be the perfected recipe for a freak in our society. Quote some girls in my science...

    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 guess I've always been lonely

    because of how I grew up but I always had many people around me. I always partied and went out with others and enjoyed myself. There were always people to talk to all night and spend time with all day. Then it all stopped. I went to college and as time passed everyone faded away...

    I just want someone to help me.

    I hate myself for sooo many reasons and I can't tell my "friends" anything because they'd hate me too. I'm tired of putting up with all of this alone. And I'm really ******* scared of what might happen if I stay like this.

    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...
