    Emptiness

    I am 16 and tired of life. Everyday I wake up feeling exactly the same- empty and lonely. I feel like I have no one to talk to for the smallest of things and basically that no one is there. My friends are always too busy for me and when I do get to talk to them they seem...

    I thought this app was to help.

    But it makes me sad how so many people talk about how in this app they made great friends and I'm just here . I'm such a fail. I can't even make friends here

    I wish I could talk to someone

    who cares genuinely, like i know that I care about others. When I am alone, I am depressed and cry a lot when no one knows. I have to be brave everyday and face the world, knowing that I don't want to be here. I feel like I'm unwanted and I'm still living because of God. I'm so...

    Never-ending Loneliness

    Ever since the beginning of the school year, I feel as though I am lonely. It all started out during summer vacation, when I had my eye doctor appointment. You see, my best feature is my eyes and I had started seeing that things were blurring up. I absolutely did not want glasses...

    Reality Sucks.

    It sucks, doesn't it? To feel so out of place in a world with 7 billion people. You have this idea of how life is supposed to be. You're supposed to be surrounded by people who will make you tell them what's really wrong when you say, "I'm fine." You're supposed to have this...

    Feeling Lonely, Especially At Night.

    It really sucks to not be in a relationship. I have been rejected (quite a while ago), and somehow, just when i think i'm getting over it, i see her and makes me feel bad again. It's not really her fault, she's just being herself. She's really nice to me, but she probably...

    Lonely Vs Alone

    I think the lonliest I've ever felt was in my last marriage where I wasn't physically alone just totally emotionally isolated, and the more I tried to change it the worse it got. Now I'm physically alone for the first time in my life and I actually feel far less lonely! For the...

    relationship, but he barely asked how I was doing and we talked once every few months. Having a bf like that sucked. It made me question whether or not I should call him that in the first place. I wanted to give him space, but I also missed him. He couldn't just not talk to me...

    I think getting older has made me more

    introverted, at least that's my theory. Thus, it's getting harder to make friends. And even harder to open myself up to [meeting] someone who may have the potential to be a significant other. Honestly, there are more days now than ever that I don't think that I will get married...
