What do you do when you feel very lonely?

- Family outside of the country you're living in
- No Bf/ Partner...
- You and your friends are all busy working and can see them only once every 2 weeks or so
- The only company you have is the 4 walls of your room, and the pile of books you need to study.

  • I used to just invite myself out to dinner. I had to give it up though because, inevitably, after a couple glasses of wine, I'd end up going home and taking advantage of myself.

  • In that situation I made friends online, typically people far away or in other countries, making it clear that I was not looking for romance.

    While this does not answer your question, there are opportunities in being alone and unattached. You can take breaks from studying to explore your environment and do activities you might not get to do when you become attached.

  • Well sounds like a hard situation to be in. For me it sounds like you feel isolated more than lonely because you simply don't have things around you. One can feel lonely even if they have people around. You need something new to ease it up for sure and it needs to include other people. You should have friends to study with, that might help both problems. Basically just try new things and try to build new habits as much as you have time to.

    I dont get lonely that easily but I would too in your situation. Good luck

  • I try to find something to occupy my mind and hopefully kick through any lonliness - GaG has been a good friend at 4am when I couldn't sleep and felt lonliness creeping in.

  • If you have trouble self entertaining... loneliness can only really be cured by interactions. If you are ambitious, once you leave the house... the possibilities are endless, but its what you make of it.

    -go on a dating site for fun
    - message people you already know
    - gag
    - see whats up with ex boyfriends
    - do nothing, it will pass

I am also suppose to join a club but I am slacking off on that. Clubs are way to make good friends (:! Also volunteering or getting a job. So I can't be lonely I am just lazy and stress about school that I don't try to socialize beside online.

  • I know exactly how u feel. its like that for me too. so far from home, studying all the time, no boyfriend... boys dont notice me pretty much but its ok. i am thinking about career now. what helps me is I made a friend who comes to the library with me to study and we are roommates now too. so we always have each other and thats enough. all u really need is just one friend :) if i were u, i would put myself out there more to meet people and see where it leads. are there extracurricular activities u are involved with? even volunteering gets the best of people out.

    -read
    -text my friends
    -gag
    -write
    -bike
    -eat

    yeah thats pretty much it

    but in your case, if u love books like I do they're very comforting and better than people
    you can have tea/coffee while studying, take a break to go for a walk in your neighborhood or something

  • I recently moved out of my home country. All my friends are at work and I'm by myself waiting for my visa.

    I just keep busy. Work on my craft. Research. Try to make new friends. Sometimes the lonliness is challenging, but for me it forces me to push outside my comfort zone.

    Otherwise, I busy myself with research.
