Does anyone want to a cyber friend? I am unbelievably lonely. I relocated two years ago to be nearer to family. This plan has somehow back fired as I never see anyone. Though, I do love where I live, so no regrets in moving. I study at university on a full time basis from home, volunteer within a few local primary schools each week and have my children completely full time. I don’t actually get a chance to make friendships when volunteering, as I’m only in each school for a few hours each week and it’s to support the pupils learning (not make friends). I’m also quite shy when I don’t know people, though never shy around children. I’ve been a student at uni for four years now and have loved it. Though it is very demanding of my time and stressful. I still love knowing that I’m always getting closer to obtaining my dream job. I really just feel very lonely. I can go weeks to months before I get to speak to an adult. I do enjoy my own company, but every one needs friends.
You’ll find that there are many of us here that suffer from loneliness, it’s a horrible thing to feel, my own form of loneliness isn’t the same as yours as I guess I’m quite a social person and I get to chat a lot in one of my jobs. However it’s when I get home that loneliness gets to me, I have my son most of the time but that’s far different than having a partner especially now he is a teenager who needs me far less than he used to. I would love to have someone to think about when I’m not with them and for them to think of me. I’ve been single for around 3 years and it’s really starting to suck.
The best thing that you can do is keep posting here, sometimes it takes a little while but that’s just the nature of the site so don’t be disheartened if the response you get can at times be a little slow, it’s nothing personal. In the past when I used the site a lot I built up some really good cyber friendships here with some great people both male and female who provided a lot of support for me and I like to think I provided support for them. There are people here with all different backgrounds and ages so if you keep posting you’ll be sure to find folk that you click with.
