Some days are harder than others, and that's where distractions certainly help.

Think some still college age or younger don't really understand how difficult it can be to make meaningful new connections once your daily activities basically don't force you into rooms with dozen(s) of strangers. Seeing the same people at a job can suck, as even if you don't hate them, having nothing to really relate to can make the grind feel longer. And if you're someone stuck on minimum wage or close to that, you're probably forced into working way too much just to make ends meet and not have a whole lot of free time to socialize elsewhere.

Otherwise, it's kind of up to the internet to fill in the gaps, but even that only really thrives for physical friendships if you happen to live in or near a big city where it becomes much more likely you'd actually come in contact with someone from the area. Dating sites thrive for this very reason, but at the same time, they're malicious enough in design to not actually work hard enough to connect people as the sooner they do, the less money they'll make on their monthly subs.

Being stuck in a rural area where the average age is 45+ doesn't help my personal odds, either. And some don't really grasp why the youth try to leave once they're old enough and able.

I think one of the loneliest I've felt was probably yesterday. Getting extremely last minute invitations or being a complete afterthought by just about everyone who spoke to or contacted me yesterday.

Yes, I know I'm always working, but still.... y'all have no idea how much effort I put in trying to listen and console everyone!

I wish I was lonely but there are too many people around to feel lonely.

Rather so, but I'm working on it.

There's times when my own thoughts drag me down, but I try not to be lonely. Keeping occupied helps:)

A bit lonely. I have plenty of good friends but I lost my conversation partner a few months ago after she found a boyfriend. It's always nice to have someone to geek out with and complain about things. So at the moment it's gets kind of lonely when I'm just hanging out in my apartment.

For the past few years, it's been on and off for me. After I graduated high school, I did college online for awhile and worked a part-time job. I was going a bit crazy so last semester I actually went to college. I did well, it was a lot of work, but I had to take a break this semester. I didn't make any friends since my roommates weren't really my type of crowd. It's hard being an introvert. Now, I'm back at home with my parents, working again, trying to find other things to occupy my time now, including anime. ^^

TBH I would like more alone time. The challenge I find about adulting is finding time.

It becomes difficult to find the right people to talk with and have the same schedule as i do.

I have tons of friends, never have a hard time getting girlfriends, a loving family and three brothers I'm close with, and yet I still feel lonely all the time. It's more of a feeling that despite how close I feel like I am with people, I never feel like they truly know me or understand me. Sometimes everything starts to feel superficial. I wish it didn't feel like that to me. Rarely do I feel like I can 100% be my true self. I imagine I'm not the only one that feels that way.
