    I'm lonely and I hate loneliness,

    but it loves me more .. I try very hard in hopes of finding someone who cares for me, but everyone is busy and no one has time for me ..

    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.

    I usually feel lonely,

    I don't feel like someone really does trust me.. No one would share everything with me, I wish I had, just one.. Bestie. Who would share anything with me no matter what...

    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.

    People come and go, I make friends

    and lose friends. Everyday I feel like I am slipping further and further away. I chase memories with dead ends. Everything seems to rush by, people say hello and ask why I do not say it back. How do I tell them I do not know who they are? Photographs capture memories but to...

    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.

    I've been feeling especially lonely recently.

    I noticed that I was experiencing low mood again - the last few months have been tough, and I began to get the warning signs of those big black clouds that once enveloped my world. It's worrisome. I did what I usually do - which is probably not the right thing - I self...

    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.

    Still, after all this time,

    after all that's happened, after all I've done...I am lonely most of the time. I have a very good life with all my needs, and most of my wants met. But, I don't have the most important thing to me. The thing that brought me to EP in the first place almost 6 years ago...

    Mr. Lonely

    I am lonely most of the time. I like it. Being lonely doesn't hurt me. Its like being me and staying true to myself. Well i got to know myself much better by staying lonely. Being lonely and doing nothing is just wastage of time. Instead if you are lonely then start discovering...

    I don't like when people feel sorry

    for me when I say I don't spend time with other people a lot... They don't realise it's ok to LIKE being alone. I think because I have been alone for so long I've grown to like the solitude, and there's no problem with that

    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...

    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...
