    ...although it tends to be more of a 'something is missing' feeling, rather than outright loneliness.

    Loneliness makes you do some really dumb things to try to get unlonely. Be good to yourselves and try to take even a newly found success/possible flame with a grain of salt.

    I'm not lonely really.
    I do make sure i've many in life to keep me from thinking about anything of this sort.
    And i'm happy that way.

    But they say, once you've fallen in love ever, even if its over and you've moved on and stuff, there's always a hole in there.
    So yes, there's this hollow emptiness that I dont think I can ever fill.

    No. I prefer to be alone, especially these days.

    No I am not. =)

    I've felt "alone" few times, but usually it doesn't come to my mind, because I engage in all kinds of discussions and such. And right now, because of my boyfriend, I feel the opposite of loneliness. :icon_bigg

    I don't even know what it feels like to not be lonely anymore...I just know that I am.
    I don't really notice it most times, but it's constantly there, even when I'm with people. And then it becomes really acute sometimes and then I just sit on my bed staring at the wall wishing I could scream the entire world away

    Here's how it works:

    You have 15 min after posting... except for anonymous posts, they are out there...
    so it might be advisable to check if it works after posting...

    even though i'm constantly surrounded by people, i feel lonely quite often. i feel that no one will want me or be honest about how they see me. i also find myself feeling guilty for thinking like that, mostly because i have a good support system of people who care about me, but i still feel like no one really cares.

    It is not that surprising that lots of us on ec, myself included, are so lonely, because honestly if we were not, if we had someone special in our lives, and more true friendships etc, we probably would not spend so much time online...this just occurred to me. The Internet in general seems to draw in lonely folks, does it not? Folks who don't have enough real-world interaction to pass their free time with? This is not a criticism, I mean as I said, I'm a prime example of this.

    Yeah. No relationship and watching everyone else as they enjoy theirs kinda sucks. But eventually something will work out for me.

    Sometimes. I don't have many friends, and I spend a large quantity of time alone. I enjoy it, but other times, I wish I had others to fill the void.

    Yes but I need no one but my family and closest friends…although I'm not going to lie sometimes I see a couple and crave that, that kind of affection…

    Sometimes. I've always been a loner so I'm accustomed to spending time on my own but there are days (especially on weekends) where it hits hard, everybody's out on Saturday night having fun and doing stuff and I'm just here home alone with nothing to do, nowhere to go and no one to talk to except for a cat, who already seems to be sick of me :lol:

    I wanna make more of an effort to go out and make new friends or something but with my anxiety I just tend to feel super uncomfortable and out of place in situations like that. Sometimes the more people that are around me the more alone I actually feel if that makes sense.
