    But how do you meet people without looking odd?

    I mean sure, you suggest pubs, cafés etc. but let's be honest people go to these places with their friends rather than to meet new ones. If you turn up on your own and try to join in with others you're going to come across as strange. Let's be honest, these days people become...

    I feel lonely right now.

    It's very cold outside, below zero. And I just wish I had someone to snuggle with again.

    I wonder sometimes if I never meet a partner

    will this lonely feeling ever go away. Can I be happy and feel loved by someone who's not really mine.

    Was it life I betrayed

    for the shape that I'm in? It's not hard to feel. It's not easy to win.

    I've sort of cut myself off from the world,

    I can't afford to go out anymore...and I have no friends or family. What to do? What is something that is more enjoyable when you have no-one? (Winning the lottery maybe?) Anyway... I'm on my bed again, staring at the ceiling. I know I don't belong in this situation. I used to...

    It's crazy... The last three weeks have

    probably been the hardest of my life.. I feel I have been totally betrayed by the person that I love the most, and now he is gone from my life. The crazy part is how my "friends" have totally disappeared. I haven't had a call or text from one in days just to check in and see...

    Most of the Time

    I can be in room full of people and still feel lonely.  I've always felt like I was different from everyone else and still do.  Even now, it's 1:45 in the morning and what am I doing?  Writing a story about being lonely.  Figures, huh? I don't mind my own...

    For some reason, I'm feeling extra lonely today.

    All I do is work because I feel if I have extra time, I would be even more lonely. I hope this feeling subsides soon.

    It always seems to creep up on me.

    Suddenly I feel lonely and alone. The general overwhelming feeling that no one loves me. Why does this happen? If only I could make it stop for good

    I feel lonely sometimes,

    and it feels like a desperate need for someone to be with you. I am not really that lonely for example my mom, dad, and sibling. But in other cases with friends i feel pretty lonely. It's hard to explain but it's just I don't like this feeling. Thank you!

    What does being lonely mean?

    Well to me it's being by yourself With no one, no physical contact that we all crave, no one to say how much they missed you today no one remembering your birthday, no one noticing I'm still the same I'm still depressed,more than ever, no one to hug no one to kiss no one to...

    When you're surrounded by all these people,

    it can be lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anyone or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone.

    I recently broke up with my boyfriend of a year.

    It's not that I really miss *him* (I did break up with him), but I miss having *someone*. I have to get used to being more on my own again.

    Been single for 3 years now.

    I enjoy it. Can focus on work, staying in shape, setting up my future. It's just now that I have a good job, and life is going good j want somebody to share all this with. Someone to take care of. Guess if it's meant to happen it will happen right?

    The Silence I Need...

    Sometimes I am not even alone, but I feel as if I were. The embrace of the solitude wraps me and I don't even realize it. When I am writing or trying to put some feeling on the paper, I embrace the solitude. The solitude doesn’t need to be a negative thing, it has the...

    The Wind

    There are moments when I think the house is actually moving. But it's been here since 1860. I guess it won't blow away tonight. But that wind... That ghostly howling... That multi-layered, anguished shriek... Windows rattle and groan. The frigid night streams in through unseen...

    But try to learn how to be happy alone.

    I see relationship like an endless struggle. On one hand always dreamed of a mate for life. On the other hand I can see how it is impossible to fit in someone's life. For me to find a man that accept me and loves me unconditionally, is like a finding a needle in a haystack. So I...
