    You get out and find a way to talk to people, anyone. In the line of a checkout say something. Also get out and do things like seeing movies, ask others what they thought. Keep busy and force yourself into public situations.

    I find something to chase away the loneliness. Listen to music, interact socially, play with my dogs...something to keep my mind off of loneliness and away from the fridge.

    Well, you can't avoid the feeling of loneliness, take it from two guys well versed in it. Peculiarly, (loneliness being an old acquaintance), discovering each other and determined to be the best we each could be for each other was a little bit fueled by intimate knowledge of loneliness. I think we appreciate each other that much more because of our histories of being lonely. Heh, by knowing sadness, we recognize gladness. How's that for trite?

    You invite your friends over for a glass of wine and a cheesy movie. And after they've gone home you sign on to RJ! icon_wink.gif

    good friends are the best! Otherwise, baking creme brulee's, cheescakes or putzing around in the kitchen keep me from being bored.

    Everybody is lonely at some time in their lives.... and it isn't something to be ashamed of in the least.

    You can be "lonely" in the company of others. It doesn't necessarily mean "being alone" at all. Some people even like being lonely. I feel it the most when my bf leaves after a great weekend, but there are times I have so much going I don't have time to think about being lonely.

    I believe you should view it as a natural thing at times.

    don't be by yourself so much? leave the house for more than groceries and work? maybe being in a social environment, even if you're by yourself, would help.

    sorry, not much help, i'm a loner anyhow so it doesn't bother me at all. i go to the gym alone, do yoga alone, dance alone, movies alone, i even work alone!

    Surround yourself with lots of friends, pick up a new hobby, read some books :-)
