    seems like you don't put in an effort at all anymore and I'm done feeling like I'm the only one trying.

    I just want somebody

    who got me like I have them. Who treats me like I treat them. If I'm 100% loyal to you, you be 100% loyal back to me. I just…ion know. I just never met nobody like that. I don't think I ever will, to be honest. I'm just sick & tired of being the only type of person that's...

    Every night it's like this unbearable

    loneliness. I hate it because I crave human interaction but there's never anyone there. I've tried and tried to have my guy talk to me more, communicate, spend time together but he's busy with work or tired from work and I understand that but it's getting ridiculous. Everyday it...

    During my school years I never made any friends.

    I kept trying so hard to change this but no matter how hard I tried people simply didn't connect with me and I even though I wasn't always necessarily alone I never made any real friends. This changed on my senior year when I met this girl in an optional class and we connected...

    I feel so forgotten..

    I used to come to Ep knowing I would have a friend to hear me out. But now everyone seems to have forgotten me. I feel terribly alone and unwanted. "Don't worry, I'll always be here" ... They said.

    Those moments when you have no one to talk too,

    so you go looking through everything to find at least one friendly chatter. Wish he wasn't always so busy... It sucks especially at night. Night is when you need that person the most. Night is where loneliness really rears its ugly head.

    I can't bare to see other people happy because of my jealousy. I'm almost disgusted with myself. All I want is to be wanted. I'm tired of feeling alone.

    There's no point in talking about anything

    anymore. In life, all you really have is yourself. No one will ever be there for you and you can't look up to people or trust anyone anymore cause all they'll ever do is just let you down and disappoint you.

    I've been feeling very alone lately,

    I hope that putting my feelings out there will help in some way. I don't really have anyone to share my feelings with, I don't want people I know to know just how alone I feel. After the death of my son, it's almost at the 5 year mark, I shut myself off emotionally and pushed...

    when you have certain cousins (ones you are close with) whom choose friends over you? Meaning they will give you every excuse NOT to chill or do anything with you, but do things with their own friends?

    It is hard to live alone.

    Especially when you are married. But, many military families live this way. They have no choice.

    I thought EP would help with my depression.

    ..you know, kind of anonymously talking to others who are going through the same thing. All it turned out to be is an app with 50 year old horny men and teenagers who's stories make me want to cry.

    Although i am constantly surrounded by people i

    always feel alone. I can be sitting there, not saying anything and people don't even notice that I am there. I am always on my own with my problems, because I'm afraid to trust others. I feel all alone in this world.

    Mostly because im alone in my head.

    Of course people feel alone. Youre born alone and you die alone. The journey through life and death is by yourself no madder if someone is by your side.

    Others don't see us as we see ourselves.  It can be a terribly lonely feeling when those we've grown to trust and appreciate insist on defining us as somebody we are not.   As much as I've grown to love EP, this can be a terribly lonely place.  AT times, I look...
