I seem to go through life feeling lonely but that's due to circumstances and fate more than anything. Whenever I make good friends they either move away or I move away. I was really happy living with friends but since moving into my own home with my baby I find it quite lonely and really boring. Not to mention mundane.
Since moving to this area I have made a few friends but only 4 I see on a regular basis. They're lovely but I don't feel that close to them. I enjoy meeting up and going for a meal or something but I don't feel I can truly be myself like with my best friend from when I was at school. I miss having a brilliant friend who I can have round at mine and stay in my dressing gown and not worrying about entertaining.
My my best friend moved 6 hours drive away and I miss her but we do skype and call a lot. Not the same tho.
I socialise a lot and have friends but miss having someone to do the everyday things with like watch TV in the evening.
Soon I will be on placement for my course and I'm looking forward to that. Can't start yet though as I have a module to finish first.
Does anyone else feel similar? Would you say you are lonely?
I am not missing a romantic relationship btw. I left my childs father last year as I didn't love him so another isn't for me just yet
Would you Consider yourself to be lonely? Watch

I don't know. Maybe. Probably? I just don't click with people easily or even at all, and the friends I used to have, I had to cut ties with because I realized they only cared about themselves. The one person I connected the most, there were some stuff that bothered her and she left, so I've been friendless for almost a year now. Add that to my non-existent communication I have with my family...
But I'm an introvert and I rarely want to be around people, go out etc, so it's not that bad.

In terms of a social group and friends, yes.
I feel lonely sometimes when reflecting on how I don't have a partner, but that's..rare.
In terms of family, most certainly not.

No real friends because I am so cynical, I suppose. I tend to just Identify with characters in films with deep human messages like Ingmar Bergman films or blisteringly intelligent and poet warrior types who I idolise and will dutifully lionise, like Jonathan Meades

I feel lonely sometimes, as in having no really close friends/family to confide in. But most of the time I like being alone.
