    I enjoy being along but that's just b/c I hate

    the vast majority of people! Wise up and chill out you fools! You suck! So, yeah, I get lonely. Every now and then there's some folks I genuinely enjoy being with but they are rare and I don't get to spend much time with them. Now if I can just find that awesome partner I crave...

    I have found that I am a lot less stressed

    and enjoy my life so much more when I'm alone but sometimes I feel like some things would be more enjoyable if I had a friend with me, like traveling and going to concerts.

    I spend most of my time usually in my room.

    Sometimes I don't feel like going out or doing anything. I am always looking for friends who just want to talk.

    I do like being alone,

    but then another part of me is terrified by it! And I’ve been left alone for a very long time. Even when there are people around me, I still feel completely alone! I’ve always desired to have just one person with me all the time. A partner! My true love! Someone who...

    I actually prefer to be alone

    than to be with a large quantity of people surrounding me. The noise and the presence of a crowd makes me really uncomfortable. I would rather stay in a corner than to be at the center. But sometimes I hate to be alone especially if you see groups of people having fun together...

    I have come to realize

    that I am alone because I like it. Instead of trying to fight it and be "normal", I am going to accept it. I cannot be someone I am not. I simply don't enjoy being around a lot of people. I am not super shy or unsociable, I just don't need or want that much attention. I have the...

    I often feel like in just

    so alone. That no one wants to talk to me or even cares. Sometimes I like being alone, but whenever I need someone they're not there. I just feel like I have to do everything myself, deal with my own emotions without any help. It's killing me inside.

    Sometimes I enjoy isolating myself,

    but there are times that I want someone to be on my side, you know, someone whom I could tell things about my day, about everything, but there's none, I don't have a lot of friends, just my phone and my PC hehe.

    been single now for almost 3 years.

    it was awesome when i first started being single. but now, i find myself very lonely at times. life is meant to be shared, i think. any single women out there that feel the same, msg me. appearance is nice, but not necessary for me. what's on the inside is what counts most...

    Ever since I was six years old,

    just being around people has given me anxiety. I would watch everyone and observe their every move, trying to figure out where they would go, what they would do, what it meant and why I cared. For a while my parents thought I might have schizophrenia. As I have gotten older I...

    I used to hate hate hate being alone.

    .. I was terrified of it actually. But for the last 5 years I have lived by myself and now it feels kinda odd when I have people over. It's sort of empowering to be alone and realize that I can be perfectly ok all by myself. It sure does get lonely though! Sometimes I'll see...

    I prefer solitude, but yearn

    for a connection. Not with another human being, though being with that one of a kind special someone is always a beautiful thing, but with something greater than anything in physical form.

    Alone and Lonely There Is a Difference

    Alone is the time for you that place we all don't mind being in sometimes the personal space we all need. Living alone can be great things just where you want/need them things set just how you like it a nice routine or lack there of a place to have guests when you want them a...

    I just want to talk to someone,

    someone that isn't "normal". I'm sick of what society considers normal, and the standard and criteria that you have to meet in order to "fit in". Does anyone else feel like they don't belong anywhere?

    Sometimes I wish I could do a "Last Tango in

    Paris.'" A secret rendezvous, no names, alone together, sharing ourselves without a history or a future. It would be like stopping time ... our lives would cease to exist. Loneliness shared is all that would remain.

    but I have to say, sometimes it would be nice to fall asleep at night knowing that I had someone to wake up to.

    that should've never happened in the 1st place. He wasn't appreciative of a warm loving & caring, ride or die woman. I had his best interest always at heart but time after time when he was needed he was M.I.A. So now with all that I endured during that 14 years I'm now so done...

    I'm am not a people person.

    Most of the time I'm annoyed at everybody because the people at my school are so fake. That's why I prefer to be antisocial then pretend like I want them around. I do get lonely but its comes from wanting real people around me that makes smile instead of frown.

    Now, usually I'm a really optimistic person

    but today I found that I couldn't really get out of this funk. It was like everybody was off doing something and here I am, unable to absolutely squat. It was lonely. Isolating, if you needed a more articulate word. It felt as if there was nothing I could do and no one there to...
