    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...

    Whenever she messaged me she's

    so mean, but I don't like blocking people so I don't. You know how you just hope for that one in a million chance that someone you used to care about says sorry and means it? I guess

    I said exactly this to myself earlier.

    My boyfriend and I 'mutually' broke up last week and he and the subsequent loneliness and sadness is all that I can think of alone at night. I want to tell him that I miss him but I'm scared and proud. But I'm so glad to have found this app - I feel a little less sad and a...

    A close friend of 6 years deserted me

    after I told her I was in love with her. She doesn't respond to text messages or calls. I never expected her to feel the same way, but somehow telling her (while at the time may have seemed selfish), was rather cathartic for me. I don't regret it. The silence on her end has left...

    The truth is, It's not

    that Im anti social. I WOULD LOVE TO make connections with people, but Im always getting beaten up by my insecurities. So I sometimes try to avoid talking to people because Im afraid of rejection.

    I used to believe that I'm a strong person.

    That every time I screw up, there's always another round to make up for past mistakes. However, before I know it, I keep on finding myself still trapped in quicksand. I don't even know where to begin with. Everything that's just been happening to me seems like, there's nothing...

    I got a job at the mall

    because I was lonely. Is that pathetic? The only interaction I get from people is from when I'm working which isnt very much.

    I don't have friends I can confide in.

    My relationship with my boyfriend is crumbling. I've spent the last 2 months staying up late, crying and bottling up by myself. I'm so lonely.

    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 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...
