    Started to tell my life story, but maybe later. For now say single male, late 50s, whose world is shrinking fast. Business failed in recession, still making some money, but have almost no personal interactions anymore. 10-20 years ago had circle of friends, a few close (not many). Today no close friends and just some acquaintances. People moved away, have new interests, some passed away. No women in my life, for several years now. Loneliness and desperation are getting the upper hand. Just going on and on till the tomb stone at the end of the road isn't appealing, but neither are alternatives.

    Will say that my mother died (suicide) when I was 12, and this had badly affected my outlook, confidence, etc, throughout life.

    Thank you both for responding. Maybe it will be a good day. Little crisis right now, because of a conflict with one of my few friends, who is basically more of an enemy now and I don't know why. Has affected my sleep, appetite, and enthusiasm for doing things. Wasn't a real close friend, but I don't have many, and because of my past I think I take things like this much more seriously than I should. Anyway, thanks.
