Feeling alone, lonely or isolated? Welcome to a support group of people that truly understand. 99,699 People

SEND TO A FRIEND:

    Ugh. I hate that I have to admit this out loud.

    I have friends, several, in fact. And a close-knit family. Even so, I feel empty inside, like something is missing. After the (recent) break down of my marriage, I was sure that I didn't want to take that walk again, to get involved with someone else romantically. Now, I...

    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...

    That moment when someone looks at you with love

    in your eyes. They love you so utterly and completely inside some strange part of you..... Something so distant and lost finds its way home. In itself , you begin to cry . You didn't have to beg someone to love you. You didn't have to cry for someone to hold you. They...

    The other day I was watching a documentary

    about aliens and I grabbed my phone to text someone to tell them about the cool information that I was freaking out about, but then I realized I have no one to talk to? Like I have no one to share the little random parts of life with.

    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...

    Ok, so here's my take on EP relationships.

    You meet a "friend", friend is cool, you chat and before you know it you're having hour+ conversations every night. .... for months. You share everything with them. What makes you laugh, what ****** you off, what went wrong with your relationship .... kids, everything. Then...

    i'm 34, a single mother living in a city with

    no family and no friends. I don't get out much because of my son. I'm hesitant to meet new people because I end up getting used or hurt, which affects my child. so I just work and live and surround myself with my kid. But when he's in bed, I'm lonely.

    Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

    Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. No one promised life would be easy, but it will be worth it.

    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...

    If relationships could come with just one rule,

    it should be to never make the one you adore feel alone, especially when you are there.

    My new husband was a single child

    and lived a sheltered life. We have only been married a few weeks now, and since he comes from a religious family, we lived strictly apart until our wedding night. All that went well, so I won’t say more about it. But a couple of days after the “big night” things began to...

    Music that once soothed,

    now only serves to water the eyes. Great pits of despair threaten to swallow, but the once saving hand reaches out no more. O, to hear that sweet voice say, “Be still, it’s all right”. Yet all that falls is thundering silence. Memories dance around; ghosts of times...

    i know what it's like.

    .. loneliness, an empty void filled with pain and confusion, being ostracized, judged and misunderstood. Being so alone that it hurts to breathe, maybe since breathing loses more and more meaning. I'm much better now but maybe I can be there for someone eventhough no one was...

    so it's starting to get about time to find that special woman. To train, discipline and start our journey together :-) Someone that also has an alternative view on relationships from the mainstream one.
