This is kind of ironic considering that this is a social media. So aside from signing up mylot, what do you think are the best way to cope upwith loneliness. Sure we have friends but they cant be with us 24/7. Especially after they are married and have their own family. So suggestions anyone?

Me, my friend when i am lonely, i ask for comfort from God. I meditate and pray and listen to Gospel songs. I feel comforted afterwards.

Correct! These type of songs reminds us of the goodness of God and his never ending life. It also tells us that trials in life are what makes us stronger in life and in our faith in God.

When I'm lonely, I would divert myself to other things to easily cope with it. Such as eating and watching movies. :)

First of all: there is a big difference between being single/alone and loneliness. Loneliness is a feeling. No matter if you are staying in the same room with a bunch of (good) friends you can still feel lonely. And if you have that feeling there is less that will help. I doubt if mylot will help if that feeling is (deep) inside you and kind of eating you. I doubt you mean this by starting this subject. Anyway... the best thing to beat loneliness is to keep yourself busy in any way you can think about. Personally I don't have that feeling since years anymore. I am always busy, have plenty of things to do, so many ideas, plans. I don't count on others to join me or keep me busy, I am able to live with me, even prefer to be with me. This is the key to not feel lonely.

Well, if I'm lonely, I deal it by myself. I don't want other people to sympathize me to avoid myself from crying. I just keep myself busy so I won't be thinking of my problems and depressions. But mostly, I just sleep. If I can't sleep I'll just be having a blank stare and think of what made me so depressed. But surely, my depression don't last for a week. :)

yaa, that is true, once you start working, you don't get much time to spend with your friends, and when they get married, there is hardly any time for friends, unless they stay close by or are working the same office or nearby. make new friends in social networking sites. someone or the other is always there to chat with you. surf the net for new ideas and ways to make money, live life, etc spend time with your family, go for outing and all. if you like music, listen to music and so on. play games etc on Computer or tv or Xbox there are so many ways to deal with loneliness. find out which best suits you. what makes you happy.
