Get cats. The more, the better... Let them teach you the ways of being an independent individual.

Find what you like and then invest yourself in the community that surround those particular domains of interest. So if for example your like music a lot, go to music shows and/or start playing in a band. If you like anime, which you probably do since you're here, go to a manga café or to a con (if you can bear big crowds).

Another way that has been effective for me is to do volunteering, I've done several sports event and I've met a lot of nice people.

It's a lot easier to socialize with people having the same interests as yours, so you have to find where those people are, and go there too. Because no one will come knocking at your door to be your friend.

I will never in my life be comfortable being lonely XD



That's not what I said.


Still i will never be comfortable with the idea of me being alone being enough.

That would go against my very nature.


It's all that anyone really has.


Not really other people aren;t alone.

Even so I live in a huge city and don't or can't just talk to someone they are liable to hurt you or worse. You can't just walk out and talk to "real" people

I don't think I've ever felt loneliness. I've felt solitude, tranquility and peace, but not loneliness. Keep yourself occupied. Do things you find enjoyable, whatever it may be. Go out and do things alone if you must; stroll around town, hit a cafe, bookstore, a shopping center and just walk around. Nothing's wrong with being alone, so there's no need to feel so sorrowful every time you are. There are some people in this world that would give up many things to be alone. Take advantage of what you have while you still have it.

Just gonna give an observation here....

I don't see the point of you asking for advice and then pretty much making excuses or shutting people down. I've seen you do this on quite a few of the threads you start.
You may have a dependency problem. The best advice I can give you is to see a psychiatrist.

I do see a psychiatrist and i have been alone all my life with but one real friend who is always busy so.... aside from that i only have friends who i feel Alien around even around my own family i feel alienated and alone.

Also i have talked to people in my town and gone out of my way to communicate they shut me out or get angry at me or dislike my sense of humour and what i find fun.

I'm all for taking advice however going outside and talking to people is something i wish i could do but i have tried all my life in my small town and well its never worked.

People here just want to talk about sports and farming i feel completely alien around them.

I have tried alot of the advice here and it's never worked some of it i have yet to try and im going to give it a try.

Tried keeping my mind off things and doing what i enjoy (Playing games) but that makes me feel more lonely and i usually just end up eating or sleeping to delay the feeling for a while

I haven't shut anyone down here i think alot of the advice here is good advice sadly most of it i have tried

Play video games. It can be used as an escape route. It's MY escape route anyways.
