    There's nearly 7.5 billion people on this

    planet, yet still I feel alone. In the company of others, I appear joyous and happy, but the reality is, nobody can ever know or understand the blackness, the emptiness that fills my chest. Just when I think I've found somebody who cares about me... I am only reminded why I keep...

    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...

    I don't know what to do anymore.

    .. I'm at my breaking point. I've been disappointed and abandoned by my friends way to many times... I don't like where I live, it feels like nobody really wants me around, I have no one to hang out with. My boyfriend doesn't seem to want me around either... I rarely see him. I'm...

    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'm Lonely

    I am secretly a lonely person. I don't like to be alone. I wish I had more friends and I did things for them! I wish I were outside with the bunnies and someplace fun where the sun was warm and the grass grew luscious. I wish I could turn the clocks of time back when I was in...

    Trying to date girls really

    but none is the right match. And so are guys... Really sad when I see people walking on the streets together. Now adding to the pain is being stuck at a job I hate. Just living day by day wish each day could be over ASAP.

    Nothing is fun. I am alone

    and I wonder when will it be my turn for love. I don't see things changing or getting better. I can cry at the drop of a dime now. I cry most days. I am a failure and I made a mistake that costed me a friendship. I wake up everyday and I hurt inside. Can I ever get a...

    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...

    How Do You Define Loneliness?

    If you asked anyone how they could tell if somebody is lonely they would probably respond by saying that its somebody who lives alone who does not get out much and who finds it hard to fit in. Well I am lonely I have got friends but I'm finding more and more lately that it does...

    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...

    Dry Tears

    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.

    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...

    Sometimes I wish I was in some kind of book,

    or a movie, or a show, so then it all would have meant something. Instead everything that's ever hurt me has been meaningless actions of a random and capricious universe that will forget me as soon as I'm gone. No one will ever know me. Everything hurts and I feel cold.

    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 .

    Where did our laughs cease, when did everything become so bitter. When did tears started to fall more often, when did harsh words start coming out of our mouths? Where did our happiness go..i miss us. I miss you. I miss how it used to be. I miss the love and warmth i used to...
