    When I'm single, I'm not actually alone.
    I have a lot of friends to hang out with.
    Not everything is about physical intimacy.
    If there's some sort of intellectual connection- I can feel connected in some sort of way.


    EDIT: I just read this.

    This is why I'm lonely. Its not that I don't have friends, I have plenty, and it its not that I don't go out, I go out a bunch, its that I'm tired of waiting for that special person to share myself (all of myself with). I feel like shes out there waiting to be found (or to find me), and I just have to wait.

    Just for the record... I was lonely even when I was married...
    My husband didn't have the energy to listen to my heart very often.

    Add it, yeah, though too many substitute it entirely or almost entirely, IMO. Which I isn't really good... I mean it's not the same, is it? You can only get to know two dimensions of a person at most, when you're only able to "see" them as they wish to paint themselves, if you can't see them with your own eyes and observe their behaviour towards others in person, that sorta thing.

    INTJMom - I know that feeling, marriage made me lonelier by far than being single. But... the sort of thing you describe, I'm not sure if some of your perceived loneliness might not be because of having built up a desire for something that I don't think is really realistic... is that your tertiary Fi on the loose there? Victim of your own idealism like my Fe gets me in a headlock sometimes and makes me a prisoner to my own philanthropy!

    Mondo - totally. My feelings exactly. I don't really want emotional intimacy though, not to the level a lot of people seem to think is the holy grail of their lives When I really thought it through to its conclusion, all it entails and all that, it didn't really look that attractive, after all

    I was feeling lonely for a while, then I started going to tavern and fight practice - I'm not so lonely anymore.

    Edit: actually, I've recently realized that most of what feels like loneliness for me these days has just been sexual frustration. The thing that sucks about that is that I am emotionally incapable of one night stands and masturbation just isn't satisfactory.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    It doesn't happen extremely often, but I read, and go to windswept natural places where the melancholy of being lonely can taste almost sweet.

    I also write letters to friends, and focus on other parts of my life (work, activities, etc).

    Eh, there is a hope I can sweat it out through sports. Problem is physical activity increases how effectively I can use energy, so...

    I once went for a 6 hour bike ride and when I came back I spent another two hours with the girlfriend I had at the time.

    ah yes. the "I could conquer the world right now" feeling you get from an afternoon of very strenuous manual labour... know it well. and its rather more unwelcome tag-along, the "I could conquer YOU if I wanted to, so why don't I?" feeling. And even I know that I'd regret acting on that.

    Apparently she didn't mind , just absolutely confused as to how the hell I had the energy.

    Without a girlfriend I end up kind of stuck trying to figure out what to do because of the other stuff I already mentioned...
