    Sometimes I Don't Mind

    Its just me and my mom, single mom and she works tons so I'm alone so much. I take music lessons and softball but I'm gay and tell no one which makes me feel really lonely and wish people cared or understood. Only people that do are online

    Particularly based on being single

    for the last few years. And wouldn't you know it, Valentine's Day is really soon. If only my life was a movie and I could meet someone and click with them just in time.

    For a little while I thought my loneliness was

    gone forever, needless to say I was a bit too optimistic. After being in a relationship for almost five years now I have come to realize that I am almost just as lonely as I once was single. I moved to a new city and state in which I know no one, and my boyfriend is not only a...

    I don't feel like people understand me.

    I feel like my friends don't really enjoy spending time with me. I don't know how to be anymore around them. I feel like crawling under a rock and just hiding from how much this makes me feel needy and depressed like no one cares. I really don't think anyone does care.

    even has a married woman I still find time

    when I feel lonely. I think it began shortly after I had lost my job. I felt I did not have a purpose of a reason to get up every morning and go to a regular job. My job only lasted for 6 months when my boss decided to let me go. He told me that I need to go back to school and...

    if i could have one thing right now,

    it would be to have friends that. people i can talk to and trust. A little drama now and then wouldn't be so bad. I mean who doesn't like a little chaos?

    I wouldn't say that I am a shy person,

    because I am not. However, I cannot seem to find any 'friends' that know what the term friends mean. I want a person who is constantly going to be there. I want a person that will appreciate my interest rather than shun them away.It really hard being alone.. Maybe because of my...

    A World All By Yourself

    Any body that deal's with depression know's what it is to be lonely. We spend most of our time by ourselve's. I have some really great friend's here on EP but it would really be nice to have a real person to talk to now and then.

    I used to have a pretty active social life.

    I was never home- always out, either partying at a club, eating a casual dinner at a bar/grill with friends, or hanging out at someone else's house. If I did stay home, someone would usually pop in and I'd cook dinner for everyone. I hated being alone. It scared me, because I...

    I'm a sexual deviant

    when I let my guard down thinking it's love or caring. Over this past year I have left myself turn into a hermit emotionally and physically. I don't think I'll ever be cared for. There are too many idiots in the world.

    Anxiety isn't something you simply ignore

    or overcome. It isn't the same as being nervous. It changes how you think. No matter how rational of a person you are, anxiety can make you believe insane lies. I have a hard time even leaving my house sometimes. It seems to get worse no matter how much better I get at handling...

    I have a full time job, but I have a difficult timetable. I work as a music school teacher, which means I don't start working until kids are finished at school. So I start late, and finish late. Add to that my social anxiety, and I am basically alone all the time. A small town...

    This applies to friendships

    as well as relationships... I just have trouble making a connection. I always feel like everyone thinks I'm weird or boring, or they secretly hate me. I spent a lot of my life without any friends, and the ones I have had something always goes wrong. It feels like I can't confide...
