    There are times where I enjoy doing things by

    myself, doing the things I love. And there are times where I wish I weren't single and had someone to say I love you too, to enjoy a nice Saturday afternoon with. This is one of those times.

    Do We Have To Stay Like This?

    I decided not to divulge a sob story here. We should all have an idea of what it means to be lonely. We may have arrived here by different means, but the loneliness is still just as pervasive. So, I want to change that. I live in the Houston area. Would anyone be interested...

    I'm so tired of spending weekends alone at home,

    staring at walls because no one wants to be around me. I moved to a new state because of a job, but I live in a small hill-town where everyone knows everyone, and I stick out too much for them to want to be with me. Because of the distance in where I live, it is difficult to go...

    I Am Accepting Loneliness

    I'm coming to terms with the fact that I may die alone, and you know what? It isn't really all that bad. I don't need a significant other to be happy and in all honesty I feel like it would just hold me back. True freedom means either the single life or a girl who is literally...

    But, loneliness is inevitable.

    I learned that everyone that you see around you has a hole in their heart. It doesn't always matter who they appear to be, or how they seem, we all suffer from loneliness. We all fear we will be abandoned, or die alone, or never find someone. This obsession with sex in the media...
