Why would I feel lonely?

I guess animals cheer me up, and my stories keep me entertained for hours. I'm always thinking

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


Through out all of school life, even some of college I was lonely, So I would always play games and watch anime, there was some times I cared that I didn't have any friends. However I was so use to it It didn't bother me as most people it probably would of bothered. Now almost 5 years out of school (Wow time flies), I do have a small group of friends and I can say I actually say that I hate to be bothered. Don't get me wrong I like hanging with them but damn I dread ever time they message me to hang out. We play yugioh together thats about it, if it wasn't for yugioh I probably would sill be a complete loner.

Fuck if I knew I'd be a lot happier in life. I guess I just go on long car rides to nowhere and listen to music when I feel lonely.

I used to have a lot of friends but I moved across the country for school and I don't make them very easily. Depressing.

The usual "getting the hobby" is a normal and the most effective way that I cope with my loneliness, but there are memes that are actually funny. Also, I just read the funniest breakups on the internet so I just give a thought to myself "I am glad that I am single so I don't have to worry about that."

I go to the Crunchy Roll general discussion forums and read through all the political threads. Reminds me why I prefer being alone.

If you spend a lot of time inside your room, that might not help and actually make it worse in most cases. I will really suggest to go out and exercise or walk around, most preferably to the park. I will suggest you pick up a hobby or join a club, this can vary on income. Also, I can not stress this enough, do not try to get into a relationship if you might be feeling constantly depressed. Read and watch some inspirational stuff, I recommend to look up Eric Thomas, he is really good at getting you out of your lonely and gloomy moods. Eating healthy also helps fight depression that can be brought by lonely feelings. Also a lot of good advice from the previous post, so pick some of them up.

I distract myself with hobbies. I read lots of manga/books and watch lots of anime.

However, I am also aware that doing this does not solve the problem. This becomes clear when I'm placed in situations where I can't read a book and escape reality.

In the end, I think hobbies are the best way to deal with loneliness in the short term, but it's important not to start thinking "oh well I will just replace people with my hobbies permanently." It might not seem like friends or significant others are going to be part of the immediate future, but if you're open to having meaningful relationships with other people then you eventually will. If you're not open to letting other people into your life and shut the world out, overcoming loneliness become extremely difficult.

I like to learn about history, reading about any age past the decision to make Roman Empire into two pieces by Diocletian.

Two words: keep busy, best advice my parents gave me to snap out of a 3 month depression streak a had 4 or so years ago and I have never looked back since.

I'm in grad school, do MMA, work a full time job, hang out with my brothers, in a professional organization and have quite a few friends online.

I'm way too tired and busy to give any of that any thought anymore.

Too much free time will only compound your problems, I know from experience.
