When you are alone, you feel lonely.It's common.When you are in crowds,you still feel lonely.That means you are lack of heart to heart friends.Feel free if you are new at some place or you have some bad feelings right now.I believe with your effort,you are sure to find some good friends.Best WISHES!
Sounds like you stole a line from one of my poems! :)
Yes, I agree that type of loneliness stems from being dissatisfied with superficial relationships, and yes, there are many of us out here that feel alone even in crowds.
YES I FEEL THE SAME SOMETIMES TO...GO TO A PARTY OR BAR OR FUNCTION THAT HAVE COUPLES. YOU DON'T EXIST...THEY LEAVE U AT THE TABLE WHERE PEOPLE SAY...[AHHH SHE MUST BE ALONE]ANYWAY TY FOR THE TOPIC....AM NEW HERE IN THE FORUM......DEB
Hi all, I too feel this way all the time. I don't know if anyone else has had this expirence. I felt this way years ago before I met my exwife and now that she has left me I feel the lonelyness again. For eight wonderful years it didn't matter if I was 500 miles away from her I didn't feel alone, she was always with me in my heart, if not in person. That is why I'm here to find that feeling once again. If you ask me true love is all that can truely beat depression. I hope all of you find this. Good luck
Generally speaking, I think that is classified as depression. I have fought depression most of my life and that is how I have felt most of the time. I could be in the biggest crowds and still feel like I have been alone forever.
To Cathii: although my guess is that it was meant as a joke, drinking only intensifies it most of the time. So I would hope that nobody tries this as a cure!
Sometimes lonliness is more common if one does not enjoy being alone. I rarely feel lonely and I actually crave more time to myself. I do want a sexual friendship but I have two true friends and that is all I have time for. I am busy with work and school and I find both of these things meaningful. I enjoy the days and evenings I have on my own and spend my time; reading, listening to music, writing, or just thinking.
Jackthelass, hit it on the nail for me as well. It is not often but when it does happen; it happens when my children are away at their dads. I too tend to just go and do something else or sometimes cuddle up with a really good book to get out of reality for just a bit.
As humans, we are so complex sometimes and that is what I believe gives us all individuality.
Sorry to hear that and yes I do know how you feel. Been lonely in my marriage for so long.
At some point in our lives we need to get the courage to get up and make the first move, it takes practice but we can do it (maybe with a little help)....You alone can do it, but you can't do it alone.
Hmm....Not sure what you mean, Knocker81.
I dont very often feel lonely as such, very often...But I do miss someone there when i get home at the end of a long day?...Does that count?
When I am out with friends, then No, I cant say that I feel lonely...A bit wistful, at times, when I see couples leaving together at the end of a lovely evening, or a nice party....BUT then I think, Woo Hoo..I can go home to no one snoring in my ear, having a bed to myself, and no one hogging the bathroom!!
Sounds like you are done with superficial relationships and probably feel this loneliness, even when in groups, because you are seeking true intimacy with another human being. Therefore being known for your true self, worts and all, and the acceptance and love that comes from living with a loved one and working on a relationship from day to day and year after year.
Sounds like like you are ready to settle down. You sholdn't have a problem finding a partner. Good Luck you'll find what you want eventually.
No Knocker.....it's not just you. I can be really happy on my own for weeks at a time & then it just hits me. Usually on a weekend when my kids are with their dad.
I pull on my boots and head off to the hills with my dog, that normally sorts me out x
