I have friends, I have a family who loves me, I have a great life and I really can't complain... but whenever I don't have a boyfriend I just feel very lonely... like I don't really have someone who truly understands me (even though I have a lot a best friends who do!)
I just feel sad and lonely and I think about how everything would be much better if I had a boyfriend who would love me and understand me and who would want to spend a lot of time with me. I have actually gone out with guys I didn't like that much only because I didn't want to be so lonely... I fell in love with some of them and it was great for a while until I just felt lonely again and thought I needed to find someone else who would fill that emptiness. But I want to be able to fill my own emptiness and I don't want my hapiness to depend on one person who may or may not leave me eventually... or even I may leave them because when the "honeymoon phase" is over I just feel lonely again. I don't know... I just want to be ok when I'm single because if I don't, I feel like every relationship I have is going to end the same way - with me feeling lonely again.

What you're describing is abnormal and probably won't go away on its own no matter who you meet if you're having recurring feelings of intense loneliness it sounds to me you need to be at peace with yourself first then you might be able to feel whole again around others. I struggled with something similar in the past so I can relate to how it might make you feel. Hang in there.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Because you haven't learned to enjoy your own company and be happy within yourself. I went through something similar, and I am currently learning how to enjoy my own company and be happy within myself. Nobody is going to make you whole. You have to be your own whole.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
