So, how do you guys and girls manage to survive the intense loneliness whether be that you have no friends or looking for a partner kind of loneliness?

If you are not lonely or been lonely before, don't even bother posting, haha.

Get a hobby.
I collect religious art. I've come to know a lot about different cultures and traditions because of it.
The strange thing about this hobby is that it attracts a big number of gay men. It's kinda funny to see grown men fight over which type of fabric is the best to make dresses for statues of the Virgin Mary.

I'm also on here a lot

Get a hobby that you can occupy your time with

Also a tip for anyone who wants quick friends, get a DSLR camera from Sony, Nikon or Canon. It's a conversation starter that will allow you to quickly build up relationships with people

I usually watch cartoons or listening to music. Recently I've been getting into writing cause I tend to over think things so if I write them out it help my brain organize my thoughts more. I also like to read one of my favorite books is the Kite Runner, I would recommend to everyone. Being lonely can be tough, I would know I grew up really shy and still am, but there's plenty of thinks you can do. I also like to cook or bake when im lonely or just bored. The activity you choose it up to you.

Hobbies are good, not just for loneliness but mild anxiety as well. Anything, really, that gets you put of your head (I tend to ruminate on small details to the point of irritation) and into the world. Volunteering helps too, but not everyone has the time or lives in a location that makes it possible.

Loneliness is a part of life for me, unfortunately. Although I am married, I work in a profession that can be very lonely at times, and with differing work calendars between my husband and I, there are times where I am home alone every day for weeks on end (doing that now, actually), with no hubby or work colleagues to talk to. Keeping occupied helps to get me through it.

Yes, hobbies really do help! I currently play Video games a lot, it helps me take my mind off of things, but sometimes it just isn't enough for me.
I wonder what will.

Thanks for your comments!

I just get on with it, feeling sad about it won't accomplish anything except wasting valuable time, life is short, life may feel lonely without a significant other but life goes on

I suppose I learn to better express my interests to those around me.

When I was nineteen I jumped into the world of Phantasy Star Online. It was the door to FREEDOM.

I have a physically demanding lifestyle, works far better then anything else I've tried. Of course being slightly of the misanthrope bent helps greatly. As I feel no real desire for the company of others, and aside from my fellow soldiers I don't hold a great deal of respect for the vast majority of the six and half billion people out there.

That being said the only real way to cope with solitude is to have some so engaging and that occupies so much of your time that you end failing to notice the solitude. And for me when my own thoughts become too much I tend to escape to the wildness of B.C. There are parts of this province that it takes days or even weeks to get to the nearest bit of civilisation on foot. And I just roam the forests mediating on the here and now and why I think they are worthwhile. I drink a little mountain stream water and live off solely what my skills as a hunter and gatherer can gain me.
