Hello everyone. My name is james. I came here because I suffer from loneliness. I hope participating here will help ease the anguish. I've read literature on loneliness yet none seem to offer solutions to comfort oneself. I'm 26 years old. I've been lonely for over a decade. I'm very advanced intellectually which makes it difficult to relate with those my age and those slightly older dismiss me for being young. The ones I could relate with are older silver-haired retired pensioners -- probably because they're nearing death and as a result are less attached to material things -- and other social outcasts -- because no one else would listen to them. Is this common?
