    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...

    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...

    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...
