  • yeah, suffering from depression because i got rejected by a girl last july.
  • I feel lonely often because the people I am surrounded with, I have no real connection to. I like a few of them, and I love my mumand sister, but we are so distant really. It's sad really, being alone like this.
  • Quite often. The only person I feel any sort of actual emotional connection to is 4839 miles away. That would leave *Anyone* feeling at least a bit isolated.
  • Alot of time i do feel lonely but I always Find ways to keep myself busy But Alloott of times i actually enjoy being alone, Its so peaceful, I can do whatever i want, Go where ever i want, and not have to think about anyone else just for a little while as thought i'm the only one that matters (which is a rare treat for me... i can never stop caring about people) ALso sometimes I'm just plain, simple scared to let anyone close
  • No. I keep myself occupied with reading and hobbies. It gives me something to do, excersizes the mind, and I have something nice that I could say I created.
  • Yes, most of my friends live over 100 miles away. Nobody seems to want to travel to hang out anymore. I'm single while most people I know are married. My daughter never spends time with me anymore. Good thing I have a full time job, many hobbies and pets.
  • Yes, because the people I love (my man and my family) are in another country. Luckily, I wont be away forever.
  • I think most peoplpe feel lonely sometimes. You can be around a room full of people 24/7 and still get lonely. But for the most part I can keep my mind occupied. Now that I have found AB it is alot easier.
  • Less now then I used to but yes.
  • only in my dreams.
  • some times I do, but tonight I am lonely with no one around.
  • Not as often as I used to. But I still feel that way sometimes. When I was younger I used to say that I felt like I was standing in a room full of people screaming at the top of my lungs and nobody even turns their head.
  • yes i do. sometimes i feel like i have a emptiness inside of me and even a whole bunch of people can't fix.
  • Only if I've got nothing to talk about. I'm not (yet, but learning to be) a naturally social person, so when out ant about, I stay in my little bubble, unless I find myself in a conversation about something I like or am knowledgeable about. I do feel lonely all the time, but I never feel alone. Lonely sucks more though.
  • Yeah. After all, lonliness has less to do with being around people, than with your state of mind.
  • I always feel lonely in a crowd. I feel forgotten and tense, wanting to have a person to talk with, and who will acknowledge that I am there. I have never understood the rules or dynamics of large groups. I avoid them.
  • Yeah, I do. Mostly I always feel like Eeyore, forgotten about.
  • I always can tell when someone isn't listening or not really interested in what I have to say. You've got to be really good to fool me. It's like one of my senses and so certain people I avoid hanging around because they make me feel lonely.
  • Yes, sometimes when mind is loaded and not free to accept outside interventions.
  • Saturday night I attended a charity gala event. I only knew 2 other people there out of about 600 total. I felt out of place and very alone when they weren't there. I tried to chat with some people at my table, but they were busy talking amongst themselves since they all knew each other.
  • Here lately thats exactly how I've felt most of the time.
  • yes almost everyday
  • I have never felt lonely while alone. So yes when I felt lonely there were other people around.
  • I don't think so because I always have someone to talk to.
  • Yes, because I'm simpily not intresting and not the center of attenion
  • All of the time.
  • yes. I feel like an outsider at times. But sometimes its just nice to have yourself to yourself ;)
  • in any large group i will usualy feel out of place. i can feel lonly when surounded with people who are supposed to be my friends so as a rule i try to avoid large groups and profer my own company. i know it is so sad!!
  • Most people are lonely at times, I chock it up in essence to everyone having a desire for everyone else to re-volve around them... and since that obviously isn't going to happen especially with everyone wanting the same thing from each other there... we usually don't feel fulfilled because we aren't getting what we want, when we want it, as much as we want... and even when we are getting it, we all realize it's transitory, which helps to lesson it's impact. the advice... live in the moment when you're in a good moment... and when you're stuck here wondering if anyone else feels as lonely as you do right now, look in the future to realize there will be many more good things to come. i usually drink whisky until the good moment comes if the knowing it will doesn't help... but i'm irish, :) the only people who are impervious to psycho-analysis. - freude
  • I feel lonely all the time, especially when surrounded by people. I am so bad at making connections and sharing stuff. I try, but some days it doesn't feel like it's ever going to get any better :(
  • sometimes i do.
  • Yeah. I don't have a lot of friends. I think that says it all. But I've gotten a few friends here on AB so maybe that'll help.
  • Ya, I live in another country and teach english at a school here. I'm the youngest of all the teachers and I often feel excluded. For instance, they will only invite me somewhere after they are aware I've overheard them talking about it, even if they have been talking about it for days. I don't understand I'm attractive, and smart, I'm a little quiet but not unsociably so... whatever. I've always got AB and videogames.
  • answer people
  • Do know what I felt this way for as long as I could remember, I remember having to wait for my Gramps to finish playing cards and I would wait in the room, meals would come 3 times a day, and when he would come back a couple of days later I would count the money and we would head out to Vancouver, then Calgary, all over the place, my gramps was a proffesional card player and I never knew what it was but I later found out it was lonliness, but the strange thing is I still feel this around people. I'm not asking for a oh poor guy, not likly this was the way I was raised and with this I was able to drive to school when I was 13-14 I would park at the school but close to, I was allowed have guns, I was allowed to take 10 horses hunting in the mountains, and I never really thought about lonliness it was something that happened to other people, maybe I feel lonliness from not being able to relate to people that well i don't have an answer for this question it is what I thought to be an interesting question so why not.
  • Yes! I've been soooo lonely tonight... TMI alert =) DH and I didn't conceive this month, and my period is so heavy and I feel so sick... He felt bad, but I still feel so lonely even with my husband and 2 children near.
  • Sure, I have. Haven't you ever?
  • O BABE! i KNOW ITS WEIRD, BUT yea!! How about being a married woman with a family, and feeling all alone!! thats me!And bored!!
  • yes lots of times, becuase they talk about me badly
  • yes. I can be in a room with a million people and I am all alone. That's why I say there is a difference between being alone and being lonely and most people don't understand the difference and until you have been "lonely" really LONG TERM lonely..you won't understand the difference.
  • I like being lonley. It's quiet and peaceful.
  • Far too often
  • not so often cuz like no 1 is realy lonely i mean some1 is always around
  • all the time. There is noone in the world quite like me, it's torture.
  • Every day, but I'm used to it after all these years. Most people just piss me off so being alone usually works out better. ;)
  • I don't think I feel lonely until I am with the one who I dream to spend the rest of my life with, and they don't come around for days, weeks, years. etc... or until I read a question like this!! +5
  • Quite a lot, but I just try and deal with.
  • Most of the time...even when surrounded by people!
  • i use 2 all the time but now sometimes well i am now im home sick
  • Very often.
  • Not often! :-/
  • Basically am alone, and i feel for that. I always like to be with my friends & family. Due to work am staying alone in my home coz of that i spend more time in my office. The only friend in my home is answerbag! I just love answering n questioning in answerbag.
  • Each and Every Day of my life ..... I have my dog for companionship; BUT ... it is not the same as a human that can talk back to you ...
  • occasionally! A times when i think of someone i miss who is not around any longer.Or if i am by myself and want to share something with another but i am alone!
  • I rarely feel lonely. I like being by myself and doing my own thing :)
  • Lots of times I feel that way, but I keep it to myself most of the time.
  • no - and when i am on my own i really enjoy my own company
  • Yes, whenever I'm away from Meghan. +4 and (hugs) Dani
  • I feel lonely right now.
  • yes.... but then i get on ab, haVe interesting conVersations, and mEEt a few loVely women and arent lonely anymorE. *wink wink*
  • Not anymore. Not since I married my best friend, Vicky. : )
  • Yes. Many times. I feel most lonely when I am surrounded by people.
  • If you're not I fail to understand why you feel so. Just because there is someone or lots of someones around does not mean it is the one{s} that make you feel not alone. Alone not all bad if you like yourself. +5
  • Yes, you just know yourself. It's always been like that and that's the way it will ten to one stay
  • One feels lonely always when one knows that one's not!
  • Yeah most of the time, even when surrounded by people I never really feel like I'm part of the crowd. Its not something that I stress over, Its just something that is part of my life.
  • Yes but not as much as i use to.
  • It just depends on what day of the week it is, if it is a monday, tuesday, or thursday, then yes, but sometimes I enjoy my quiet time, I can catch up on my guitar practice, or sleep.
  • There is no reason to.
  • All the time. I long for close relationships and friendships but if someone tries to build our relationship, I distance myself from them for some reason. I don't trust easily or often. As a matter of fact, I don't think there is one person I can name that I trust. I'm not close with my family either. So always lonely. Perhaps a bit self inflicted though.
