Been in that position before.

For me it was just a matter of time. I adjusted to being alone such that it doesn't bother me at all anymore. Being lonely after making friends stings worse at first, but just like anything else, you just kind of forget about it over time as you occupy yourself with other things.

Just like you said - I think we only really feel lonely when we don't have something to do or we're bored. A hobby you can engross yourself in should do the trick just like it did last time if you give it time.

Well, that's just my experience, of course. Perhaps it's not the same for others. 'Shrugs'

I agree, a hobby would certainly help pass the time. But ultimately, we're social critters. As much as I wanted to think I could stay away, I ended up on the CR forums. Socializing has a way of creeping into one's life. But I don't regret it.

True. I guess the same could be said of me as well.

Though, I don't give much stock to online interactions. I wonder if they alleviate loneliness as social interaction, or if they do so as just another way to kill time? I mean, they just seem so airy - like striking up a conversation with someone on a bus.

Bah, I've never been good at analyzing things psychologically.... lol

I think it depends on the significance you attach to it. Me, I throw myself in 100%, for better or worse (usually worse). If you're more casual about it, you're probably better off in the long run. I'm not wired that way, though. I guess the best analogy I can give is from Shawshank Redemption, when Red was talking about being "institutionilized" - "First, you hate these walls. Then you accept them. Then you come to depend on them."

Just accept your fate, the fact that you are going to be alone, and be happy that you are alive and get to do whatever the f*** you want (unless money is an issue)

You can get used to it. Not the same as "curing" it. I've found that you can get used to just about anything.

I used to be a loner when I was a lot younger. Now that I've made friends and know what it's like to have emotional support, caring about others, and having fun with them; I get lonely easier. You could be occupied in a hobby to where you don't think about being alone(that's how I was a loner when I was younger I was concerned about watching anime more than making friends). I've gone back to being mostly a loner and it kind of hurts to be lonely now. Is it possible to cure loneliness without needing to make friends? I tried getting back to just watching anime but now I get bored of anime. I still like to watch it of course it's just sometimes I wish I could talk to someone during the episodes.


Talk to me during the episodes, I make friends online all the time

you can either accept it or try to change it. I think you need at least 1 contact or partner that you can talk to about anything and then you should feel complacent. You need to find something you truly enjoy doing to occupy your time and It won't matter if your doing it by yourself or with others. In fact being 1 has many benifits you can remind yourself of. Such as freedom, to do any activity you desire, Eat whatever, go wherever. It's too hard to find people that match up with you that are not beastial nipwads.

Planned social activities Although a cringe-worthy Idea, Is the only sure fire way to meet people and have a chance at friendship. Such as volunteering // cooking classes // tafe courses // uni. Knitting club. Card gaming club. Whatever.
Or just go drink in the city on your own and be everyones friend.
