    Loneliness Knows Me By Name

    I'm new to this site and,

    personally, it's kind of sad to me for being alone in my room on the internet on a Sunday. I suppose that it is what it is. I've answered a few posts and it makes me feel a little better just knowing that I'm not alone in feeling like this. To those reading this, thank you and...

    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 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...
