    Hey y'all,

    So school is out for the summer but I am stuck back in this college town having to retake a class, find a job, find internships and such. For some reason though I feel so alone. I am used to having a roommate, but I am now roommate-less, in a 2 bedroom apt. I know I shouldn't feel down, especially since I will be moving again soon for physical therapy school and I'll have to start completely from scratch in another city. Now I have been out on my own for 3 years now, but i've always had a roommate.

    I want to know what you all did when you when you started to live completely alone, did you ever feel very lonely?

    No I'm not suicidal at all. I just feel sad, like there's no one around or anythin'. I wouldn't mind it as much if I had a job, but finding a job is extremely difficult nowadays.

    I get that feeling sometimes. Its like you want someone to interact with or just have the thought that someone is around. I used to live with roommates and it was fun to have them around to just hangout at home.

    I live alone now and I noticed that I sometimes get that feeling when I am at home all day by myself.

    I do appreciate my alone time when I am out all day with people and come home at the end of the day. Then I don't get that alone feeling. I get that relieved to be home feeling.

    You should try to find something to do outside of your apartment during the day then come home unwind. Then it'll kinda be like working all day and coming home to rest and get ready for bed.

    I usually just look for gay soaps on youtube and watch them till I start to feel sleepy.

    It can be lonely at times I suppose, but I lived at home when I was in college and my Dad was gone much of the time and I had responsibilities. When I was in law school, my roommate was my cousin and it was cool. Prior to my building my home, I lived "at home", but my Dad was rarely there and so I was by myself much of the time. It was a big place and I had a lot to do so I didn't get very lonely... not with my quarter horse, the dogs (and Buddy at the end).
    Now in my new house, it's much the same, no big deal, but it's always a little difficult when my partner stays, then heads back home. I have such a hectic life with friends and stuff happening, I don't think about it too long.

    Congrats on the new schooling....
