Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Explain your opinion in great detail.

For some reason, I still feel alone even though I have a good friend. She is great and so is her family which makes me happy. Still, I can not help but feel lonely at times. Yes, she has her own friends and I met some of them. They're cool and such but those are her friends. Unfortunately, I don't have friends other than her. Not to forget she is a very busy person with more than one job and attends school, so I don't always see her. When she isn't busy she has time for her friends and me. I've always felt like this. I tend to meet good or cool people that treat me nice but I feel alone. At my job, I met cool people but it is weird there. I'm still new and everyone has known each other longer than me of course. I do get a bit jealous of that. Aside from my employees, the same happened at college only it was a bit different. I had a few good friends but I still felt alone. The people who said hello and few other nice words to me weren't really my friends though. All in all even though I have a great friend I still feel lonesome. Maybe it's my self-esteem issues that makes me feel that way or I'm not sure. Sorry, if this paragraph doesn't make any sense to any of you.


What are your thoughts? Do you feel the same or no?

Enjoy!!!

I've felt like that at times only because I had too many groups of friends that I was attached too. I got so used to one and felt forgotten by the others. It still goes on today but our memories will always be our memos :)

Anyways, sounds like your youth was a waste (not to be offensive or anything xD). I had acquaintances for my first two years of high school whom later became my best friends on my last two. I think there's a common scenario where you're pretty shy to approach anyone and you wait for someone else to take the initiative. If that goes on for too long then you might've missed your chance (too long being after college). Taking the leap of faith is recommended during the teen years, well at least I recommend it anyway lololol. But the lottery doesn't disappear here or there, no matter what age or situation, but it probably would've been better if it was done earlier.

Your paragraph makes perfect sense to me. I'm the exact same way to be honest. I have a handful of friends that I'm super close with on top of being part of the best family I could have ever been able to have been a part of. However, despite having these wonderful people in my life I feel lonely. When I feel this way it gets me pretty down. The weirdest thing is that I feel lonely even when I'm around them. I don't know how to explain that phenomenon honestly being around someone and feeling alone. Maybe society demands too much of us sometimes. I mean that we see all these tv shows, movies, ads with people always having at least one person around enjoying themselves or people having fun in a group and just maybe this is giving us a false sense of what our live are supposed to be like. So when you're by yourself you feel like some sort of a failure. Maybe that's just me. Anyway, I can agree with you that it might have something to do with our self-esteem because mine of low as fudge.

What friends?

My father told me "You're lucky if you can keep two good friends past college". I'm getting to that age, and it's absolutely the truth. People move on, and you don't have friends, but wives, husbands, kids, colleagues, bosses. But friends? Not really too much.

I've got a few but I admit..

I haven't physically seen them for quite some time now; this doesn't make me feel lonely however..

The main thing we do anyway is game together and we still share a lot of stuff that happen in our lives.. We all just don't have the feeling we really need to SEE eachother directly.


If that makes sense.

Yep. I mean, I don't really tell people much about my interests, so in a way, I always feel very alone even though I have friends in real life that I talk to every once in a while.

When I was younger I didn't have many friends.

Yessiree, I do feel that way sometimes. I used to feel it quite often back in the day when these youngsters didn't have...
Anywho, this is why I am trying to gradually collect close friends to establish contact information early on. (Although, they are not to fond of it?)
