Howcome I feel so lonely.. when im not?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
For some reason, I feel really down.. and feel lonely.. yet today I probally talked to about 20 friends, 5 ppl I dont know. Every day I socialize, more than half my day is socializing actually.

And a couple hours ago since the day ended I talked to alot of internet friends.. but when I'm independant and on my own(usually where I go to play a game before I go to sleep).. I start feeling really lonely, and I know a bit of idenpendance is good for you. So why the hell am I feeling this way? It only recently came up

    I don't know anything about you or your situation... But from what you've said I would guess that you're not completly comfortable with your own company... Could it be that you like socialising because it's a distraction and you don't like it when it's just you on your own with your own thoughts?

    I might be completly wrong; but it would make sense if that's the only time you feel like that.

    Hi OCD John,

    I’m sorry to hear you are feeling so lonely, it must be very upsetting, but please be assured and don’t worry too much, there are lots of people feel exactly the same as you.

    Feeling very lonely can leave people in a low mood, sad, unhappy and even depessed. I’ve seen your other thread talking about your sleeplessness, you must be having defficult problems and I think it’d be worth considering if there is someone you could talk to, could be a friend or family member. People often find that sharing their feelings can help. It might also be good to think about what kind of interests you have, what you enjoy doing or activites you would like to get involoved with. From there, you could find out about local clubs or organisations you could join, and meet new people with similar interests. Here is a article for you to check out on how to cope with loneless.

    And remember, if you ever feel really lonely or desperate and need to talk to someone, any time of the day or night, please call the Samaritans on 08457 909090. Alternatively, you can call Youth 2 Youth on 020 8896 3675, they provide caring support and advice.

    I hope this helps!

    Okay I have been going through something similar recently and I dont really know your situation but in my case I had been socialising with all types of people and had lost contact with my family. I recently started hanging out with my family and I feel alot better now. I guess my Family offered me that sense of security I needed to fill that empty gap that when my friends aren't around I know my family are.
    Anyway wish you the best and hope you find an answer.

    Hi John... When you say you socialise, in what situations are you in? For example, if you're going out for beers, well maybe alcohol is not helping the situation.

    Do your friends treat you well? Are you open with them? Do you hang out mainly with couples?
