    Loneliness... I understand it so well; yet I lied to someone when I said I was never lonely. I guess I just didn't want [him] to think I was weak since he kinda looked up to me. M-hm.... So hello Davy, I hope it gets better for you, I really do. :console:

    Admission is free. But only one person per entry. Couples may not join. Not lonely enough.

    Ha. It reminds me of going to a singles dance, but seeing all couples once I get there. Hello? There are supposed to be single individuals, not couples already hooked up. Fuckers.

    A feeling is a feeling and does not require parameters to qualify, I think. I have a great wife and three sons, but one left us two years ago by suicide. Lonely is a feeling that I wish I could trade for the empty heart that weighs me. Sleep does not remove the memories, because dreams are constant and guaranteed. Hurt and pain are relative. There is no measure of compare from one person's suffering to another's. Suicide leaves pain that is never ending.

    That said, for those of you who feel alone today... reach out and try to remove that feeling - even pets can fill a void sometimes.

    I hope you all find some solace today. I'm sure a number of those who need a friend will be in chat today.

    Those of us who have a lonely giftmas. Need to realize that we have a bigger giftmas budget for ourselves. We need to learn to treat ourselves during this time.

    yes I slept until after noon. Then went back to sleep at about 3:30 pm. So I mercifully slept through the day. I am sorry that other people are suffering the depths of aloneness on Christmas day. I know its so difficult. I hope next year will be better for all

    I cried twice today and slept most of the day. I really hate these stupid holidays. People act like they care for a couple days out of the year, and the rest of the time I get ignored. So yeah, it's always a lonely Christmas...well any day is lonely for me. And I'm sorry that anyone else has to go through this too.

    Well I was lonely and I don't even fit here, I am married, but my husband won't celebrate anything and I was very sad all day, the post that said no couples didn't help. I can't help it if I married someone and then discovered what I was going to have to give up.

    I was with 10+ people at Christmas dinner, I've always had dozens of people around me, I'm hardly at home since I'm always visiting someone... Loneliness doesn't quite seem to get solved by having people around you... Many that happen to be around me don't seem to get it... or I should say no one around me seems to get it. Many seem to believe having people around you doesn't make you lonely. I suppose you can be not lonely yet be very empty......
