Am I the loneliest person on the planet?

by Good_Guy_KC

I am a recent college graduate. I want to go on Facebook, and message this person from my year, and tell her that my life has been a lot of bullshit since graduation. I know this is a bad idea for a number of reasons. I just really want someone to tell me that their life has been a lot of bullshit as well. I just want to make a connection with someone. In truth, I have two good friends, but they don’t like to listen to my problems. They also spend most of their time absorbed in video games, and while I am a terribly patient person the whole routine is getting old. Sometimes it feels like I’m the only lonely person on the planet. What would help is if I knew after work I would be meeting another lonely like me, or going to a party with some friends, but in reality I go home and no one talks to me. I know this is rambling: it’s late and I can’t compose my thoughts so well. I need to rewrite this for another post.

Oh man, please don’t tell me I’m the only one out there who feels so lonely. I’m smart and interesting and know a lot about books and music, won’t somebody please talk to me??? I can’t keep going to work knowing that I have nothing waiting for me at home.

Definitely not… You’re not the only one.

I agree with them, you are not alone.

You’re not alone …lots of people are in the same boat.

Its like that for me too and im just about to graduate college. It sucks not having someone that connects with you on a level where you feel like you both sort of understand one another. Everyday I wake up go to school come home get ready for work and i get home and theres nothing. Thats my everyday routine I have one good friend but even we dont connect on all the levels i would like to. Theres things i enjoy that i feel i cant talk to people about cuz they wont get it. I know the feeling.

having someone who connects isn’t always the best thing, you will feel even more lonely when they leave and even if they come back. they can make you happy for a short time but as soon as they leave the loneliness will continue to rise

I have to agree with hated-one.

Well I think you are the one who make you happy. But I do think another can add to your happiness… but I agree when they leave it can cause plenty of pain…
I’m not entirely sure if the saying “Better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all”( or w/e ) is entirely correct, hope it is but I wouldn’t know.

No one wants to be titled lonely… I understand it though if I could find someone who generally just liked me for who I am I would be the happiest person in the world unfortunately from what I’ve seen it takes friends to makes friends, so somtimes it feels like being lonely is inevitable for some… such as me who can’t even create a facebook page because I would literally have 0 friends… :/ I would genuinely like to find somone like me who I can relate to because as far as Ive seen most people think its because you don’t try but unfortunately that’s a complete misconception.

I’m lonely, but I actually enjoy it. People are so cruel, untrustworthy, and ignorant, so I find it best to stay away from most folks. Antisocialism isn’t always as bad as the docs knock it up to be. Heck, me being isolative has helped me realized that 99.9% of my problems aren’t my fault (most of my problems were created by heartless “people”).

Have to find a way to enjoy your own company.
And then you may meet someone who you can connect with.
But be vigilant.
People can and will lie with words and actions.
You want someone to respect you and be honest with you.

edward_storer@yahoo.com.au, send me a message, I will be your friend, you have 2 more friends than me… I have my mum and absolutely no one else… You are not alone in this world , look forward to hearing from you

To edward: I’m sorry you feel alone. I know the feeling all too well. I believe it’s okay that we feel alone, and that we shouldn’t be ashamed of that feeling. I think I am entitled to feel awful about my life if it has been turning into a disaster since my graduation. People who are uncomfortable with understanding loneliness, like my gamer friends, don’t get to be as special as you and I. Think of being lonely as being part of a special fellowship of rare individuals who are open to the entirety of their emotions, both painful and pleasant. Loneliness hurts, but refuse to ignore it with distractions because depth of character is so much more important. Every lonely person, both male and female, is probably your friend, and I am glad you reached out to me. I hope I reached out to you, apologies if I rambled, once again it is late and I am having trouble composing things clearly.
