Yeah he said something similar when I demanded answers from him. Fucking asshole if I wasn't so lonely I would never have done anything nasty with him, I'm pathetic. I was so nervous I couldn't even stay hard for him so he left and thought he did something wrong. All I wanted was to talk to someone like me. He's really handsome too and has no reason to be in the closet, it makes no sense
Damn, I would've found you so cute too... getting all nervous like that.
Everyone has their own pace, and you just need to find yours. You're lonely because you want somebody, but getting a boyfriend won't make you any less lonely unless it's the right person. Next time, make the other guy work for your affection, or if you find someone you think is worth a damn try to work for his. If no one puts in any effort the relationship won't mean a damn come the morning.
How do I deal with loneliness... well, friends and family help a ton, but a lover deals with an entirely different kind of loneliness. Frankly, I guess I don't deal with loneliness. I have hobbies, I have work, I can look at porn and just get it out of me for the day and not worry about it. Keep busy, keep distracted, stay involved and put yourself out there in the world. That's how you meet people.
