I would also like to warmly welcome you to the forums along with our lovely Geoff..
I have felt alone for many years even before my late husband passed away...Since his passing that alone feeling has increased into loneliness which I think is one of the hardest things in life to deal with..
I have resigned myself to being alone as my marriage wasn’t a good one and I’m now to afraid to trust any one to share my life..
I’m wondering if you have any passions in life..like hobbies, do you have anything you really enjoy doing, I ask this because maybe you could seek out some groups that enjoy what you do....some groups have outings or get to togethers to share their interests and help others with the some interests...maybe that’s one way to meet like minded people that maybe good friendships can be made..
I am sorry that you feel loneliness...and hope that in some way we can help you feel less lonely...Most of my friends are here on these wonderful forums..even though I know that our community members can’t meet another member in real life...The friendship I feel here is so real...
I really do hope that you will keep talking here when you are feeling up to it..,We are here for you Dear GM..
My kindest thoughts with my care..
