    I'm Lonely pretty much all the time.

    I live in a world so different from who I am. I have a wonderful partner and kids. But other than that I have no one. I want that friendship thing humans crave so much. I seem to get it but I don't know how to grow it nurture it and make it last. I hate being different I hate...

    I live in a rented house.

    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...

    Yesterday was a bad day; felt hopelessly stuck

    in my sadness. And I know it was a wasted day in my life, that I cannot get back. I wish I could wake up from this.

    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.

    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...

    I don't know what to say.

    I talk to this woman for months, then she basically dumps me Saturday, telling me that she is "unsure", "confused". Then texts me, to see how I am doing. ...what am I missing??? Why do I even bother.

    I'm a single young boy.

    Most of the time I used to stay at my apartment, no phone calls, no friends, no lovers. Just eating, watching TV , watching movies, reading books, facebooking, exercising etc. So when I go out I feel so pathetic about my self, but I never blame things which I don't have, but...

    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 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.

    I get lonely. I live in an overpopulated are.

    People here have nothing in common with me, and if they do, they are either single guys that drink ALL the time. Or they are already taken, sometimes with kids. I feel like I'm never going to find my Prince Charming. I feel like I need to move out of this city. Guys I tend to...
