We both feel lonely

I don't know how to fix it and neither does he. I am not having a problem or anything right now. I am just feeling lonely. I told him that I feel this way and he told me he feels the same way. I am clueless as to why we both feel lonely under the same roof. He feels it's because,he needs the tv on and I am in another room in the quiet. Could you see his point? I don't need quiet all the time.

Well any two people need their time to do what they need to do as you know.. You wont be lonely for long once you guys finish what you are doing huh?

@sharon6345 It is probably just depression sharon..Maybe it has nothing to do with your relationship, just each your own things you are feeling. I used to feel lonely too when I was with someone.

We all have different needs. Being quiet by ourselves is healthy and has nothing to do with our other relationships. Both feeling alone may mean you both have other issues to resolve. Ones you don't feel comfortable with vocalizing on our that you don't even understand yourself.

That must mean we don't know yet because,what he said does not seem true to me. We are under the same roof and that is crazy..

@sharon6345 ....I would take it a day at a time and don't make or take on any promises when confused.

maybe both of you miss those sweet simple gestures you both do when the relationship was still new. :) Try watching fire proof. It is a great movie. :)

I think once a week the two of you should plan on doing something together @sharon6345 . Go play putt-putt golf, visit a museum, an amusement part or just a walk at the local park. It sounds like the two of you are drifting away from each other.

He has health issues so we are not able to do that right now. We can watch tv together though. Thanks very much

@sharon6345 Okay, instead of what I mentioned, maybe playing a game of cards or a board game like Monopoly. Do either of you have a talent like playing an instrument (teach the other person), drawing (teach the other person). Do crossword puzzles together.

Maybe he could turn the TV down and not be high would be ok with you.

I do not give relationship advice. Seems you know the answer anyways.
