    I think I have been feeling lonely

    since 2008. I moved 300 miles from my family and friends. I have 1 friend where I live now. In fact she is always too busy to hang out with me. I get tired of trying to reach out and getting told no. I organize a book club but the people in the book club only seem to want to...

    The only people at school

    that I think really understand me are moving away, and one of them I've tried to email but she doesn't check her email often enough.

    I seriously don't know what do!

    !! Case 1: My parents divorced half a year ago. My dad hasn't been paying my school. He owes the school a lot of money now they want to kick me out. By cultural standards parents (where I live) have to pay schools from elementary to college. My dad left me with my mom and my...

    I'm in a very dark place right now.

    I keep thinking of suicide and that scares me. Its been happening frequently as of late and like I said it flat out scares me. I don't think I could ever do it but I don't like these thoughts running through my head. There's just been this emptiness.

    Is There Anyone Out There?

    I have often thought about this. Why can it be so easy for others and so hard for me? What is normal? Being in your 40s and never had a girlfriend and wanting to connect with someone very much,is this normal? There is longing for love and affection,which never comes. What is...

    It's kinda hard for me to tell my boyfriend

    that I'm not feeling to happy. I feel sad when we don't see each other for a long while. Sometimes we don't see each other for a month. We just live 45 minutes away. I'm just starting to feel like if I should keep waiting or not..

    I am too sensitive and too emotional.

    I care about people too much and I have so much emotions that I cannot control. I am a guy so I always get told to 'be a man' since most people expect men to be tough and confident. Never cry and positive all the time. Sadly, I don't have any of those qualities no more because...

    Sometimes I see a picture,

    or something funny that I think would make you smile, and I save it. Then I almost send it to you or tag you in it, but then I go..wait, you're not mine anymore..but then I go, wait..you never really were. You were my first cuddle on a couch. The first one to ever pull me in so...

    Isolated

    I can't find anyone. I haven't had a date in almost a year. I have no idea how to meet people. I have no idea how to speak to people. Things are really hard and it would be nice to find someone who would make it seem less so. I sleep wrapped up in my sheets because I don't like...

    I hate complaining but I'm sick of feeling like

    an option . I have people who say the love talking to me but rarely do or put little to no effort in , I feel like no one actually wants to talk to me . I feel used and stupid .

    I guess things are going along okay

    but I just feel so sad and alone. Maybe just residual stuff from the emptiness my cousin left after he supposedly jumped off that bridge and was never found. I think about him every day at least once an hour. I miss him all the time. It's horrible to lose him. I thought I would...

    Not only did my ex left me,

    my family and church group think that I can't do anything right and that I am never enough. That whatever I do will always be bullshit and that I won't be able to go anywhere with my life. I am sure of what career I want to pursue but people, most importantly my family, don't...

    I haven't had sex in 6 years.

    Sorry if it's too much to read. I'm only saying this because it dawned on me how much I'm missing out when it comes to physical and emotional intimacy. Am I not worthy of such things. What is it.

    I have nobody to turn to.

    The only person I thought I could count on started hurting me too. My stepfather has been molesting me for years. When I was about 14 years old, our house maid entered my room and found me crying. I cry a lot. She asked me what was wrong, laid next to me and hugged me. I couldn...

    I feel like I have no one.

    Working doesn't make me feel better. Being alone doesn't make me feel better. I'm praying and I'm praying and listening to Christian music.. but I just.. can't help but still feel incredibly sad. No friends. No love. No happiness. No nothing.. I hate being so sad..
