It happens to me a lot because I'm bi polar and hate having to leave my apartment. I much rather be alone. As much as I do like being alone sometimes I do feel lonely and especially since my Mom passed away last year. She was my best frirend and when I start thinking about her I'm still feeling sad even after all this time...I have a s/o but I he's always doing something or not feeling well. Sometimes I send him off on an errand just to get rid of him....lol. When I start feeling lonely and he's not around I spend time on my pc. I love playing games and I play a lot of them online. What do you do when your feeling lonely? Is there something that gets you out of it?

Firstly i don't wanna live alone. I like to have wife and children.Relation between wife and husband make mind in peace and harmony.Whereas if done something wrongly will create hurt in the heart.LUST- beware of it.LOVE is allowed.That is to say make difference between LOVE and LUST. Thank you

I understand I'm somewhat in the same boat. Unfortunately I cannot get out where much and I'm stuck at home and the Internet is another window to the world for me. I do post on several boards which is great because you do not have to do it but if you want to it is always there. I wish I had more flesh and blood friends but I do not foresee that changing in the near future so what I would do is watch some TV and go to bed early and start afresh in another day.

If I want to cheer myself up, I put on one of my favourite comedy films. In my case, that would be a Woody Allen film. I have also spent many an hour watching something interesting on youtube. The bloopers videos have made me laugh a lot. I also get a lot out of music. I spend a lot of time alone as well, at least then I only have my own nonsense to listen to!

I feel the same way alot. I can be feeling lonely even in a room full of people. But i love to have time by myself and even sometimes i need that and cant get it. Soooo funny you send your s/o out on errands to have amoment away , i do the same thing. I used to get depressed when i felt lonely but now i too get on pc to just get threw it, not sure if this is good thing or bad thing.

to be honest i never really feel lonely. most of the time someone is here. i actually have the opposite problem which is little or no time to myaelf. i am not complaining though as i have been lonely in the past and i like things much better as they are now.

Music, music, music - filling my house with music gets me up and going again. It is hard to feel lonely and down when you have some upbeat music playing (especially, if you start singing along). I also go on-line on my computer; but, that only works for a little while. A lot of times I have music playing while I am on-line. If I am alone and I don't have the music on after a while I start feeling fatigued and sleepy. But, if I put in one of my favorite cd's I wake right up and am not tired any more.

hi ctrymuziklvr when I get to feeling like that I come on mylot and sometimes after mylotting I go downstairs in search of other people to talk. Sometimes if there is a program going on I will go downstairs and participate so that I am not alone. Also I email my best friend and also my son in hopes of hearing from them too. Also I love Mozart's music so play it when I feel really blue and alone.picks me up.

When i am lonely i have my music, TV, movie, computer, mobile phone and most especially friends. Nothing can ever get you out of your loneliness except yourself. Be creative, productive and enjoy your surroundings. Live life to the fullest as if it is your last.

I tend to keep myself busy with something I enjoy or I go for walks, runs just to keep my energy up. If I dont want to do that, I'm online, talking to my friends or working on things/ projects. Basically, anything to keep me busy so I won't notice the feeling.

I think that the best course of action is to do what you are currently doing and that is, do different things on your pc. This certainly works for me. I reply to emails and I obviously spend a lot of time on My Lot, this helps to pass the time easily. I generally do enjoy my own company though. I have been living alone for a long time now and I have become accustomed to living this way. I think that if things were to change dramatically now then I would not really feel comfortable with the new change. I also love playing games online especially the monopoly online board game which I purchased. When I'm not online though then I also love to read and I read a lot. This is a form of escapism for me and it takes me to different places and helps me to escape reality for a while. I also love cycling although I'm beginning to slow down with this, I haven't been out for a few weeks now and I'm beginning to lose my momentum. So, that's me in a nutshell! Andrew

I think I would go to take in the sea alone When I feel lonely. The sea breeze touches my face and calm me down, softly, peacefully, quietly. Actually I seldom feel lonely. Im a busy man. LOL.

i usually listen to music as i do so ,i feel away from this world , in my new world where there is no worries and tensions. music takes me away form the daily problems and make me feel better.
