I have recently (two months ago) broken up with my girlfriend of over 4 years. Now, I dated my chica for from the age of about 14 through 18 (and today I just turned 19). In the past, before ever meeting her, I remember not thinking much about my alone time. Indeed, I remember having many a good time when I was alone. I would just hang out all day chatting away on the net, playing games, talking to friends over AIM. Time passed nicely. But, after 4 years of spending basically all of my time with her, and very little of my time alone, I notice it's now not so easy passing time alone. Sure, some days will come where I won't think twice about it, and with my guitar in hand, and a list of friends to call in hand, I am ready to tackle the time away, but others, such as this now, leave me with the worst feelings of loneliness. I don't quite know how to describe it.

It's in this time I ask you UG: do you ever feel lonely, even after spending tons of time with a good amount of people?

I've been in that same boat. you just feel empty and not exactly sure what to do with yourself. It's a ****ed up kind of loneliness.

Not really, I dated a girl for 2 and a half years, spent all my time with her. When we broke up it felt so ****ing great to be alone.

Man up dude.

ive picked up a **** load of hussys, been asked out about 7 times but i just dont care.

20 years old and i think love is for dedicated people who want to get married n ****.

I usually feel that there are too few nice people in the world, but I tend to enjoy solitude.
I'm a communist. Really.

A lot of the time, I really do see what you guys are saying, but I came from a lifestyle, where for the past four years, almost 95% of my time was spent with others. Keep in mind, my girlfriend practically lived with me from the ages of 14-18.

To the guy who said "man up", come on.

The problem is I just sometimes feel that life has no point at all.

I just came out of an almost 9 year marriage back in September and have quite enjoyed the freedom of not being in any relationships since. Granted I have been lonely on occasion, but mostly I'm enjoying my free time and my money... that and the lonely spells are great for songwriting material

You are right HauntedBoy. But I get these ridiculous feelings of basically finding anything wrong with anything, even to the point of cutting out my song writing.

To me, there almost is no sad song. If I'm sad, I just sit around feeling sad. If I'm happy, I'll write songs. If I'm sad, can't even begin to play. Perhaps it is because I feel I am losing my chances quickly at life.

I had a fun, fun FUN FUN! time in high school. But I did terribly. I didn't get into college. I'm at community college now, failing classes as we speak. I have no idea where my life is heading, I'm 19, and totally ****ing lost. My girl of 4 years just left me, all I want to do is take a vacation and get the hell out of the same old. But it won't happen any time soon. All I have to look forward to is searching out some **** job, coming home, and getting drunk on the weekends. That makes me feel like death.

Seeing as how I seem to practice normally 7-12 hours a day and have no friends were I live cause I recently moved here from my home town

Yeah lol
although I love to play guitar so I hardly think about it, but when I have to put it down to go into town or whatever I do get a little lonely sometimes
With is ironic cause I hate being with people to long so I can't win either way lol
But it is rare that it bothers me, I love to isolate myself for some reason, can't stand relationships and all that **** either

A lot of the time I'm listening to songs such as "Alone" by AIC and "By myself" by Linkin Park and "Lonely Day" by SOAD. So yeah, I'm a pretty social person and I spend a lot of time with people.

I spend tons of time with people. It doesn't mean you can't feel lost.

I too practice the guitar for an insane amount of hours each and every day. But my own friends have criticized me on this trait more than enough times.

Instead of priding myself on the playing, I sometimes learn to hate myself for it.

I'm only good because I wasted tons of time doing this.

Time I should have been out exploring the world with, or studying, or something.

Do you get what I am saying?

I would say so yes if I wasn't I would make such a thread.

More or less, I'm not ashamed to share when I'm feeling a bit low.

I have mood swings.

When I made the thread, less than an hour ago, I felt very down. Now I am feeling a bit more up, somewhat due to the comments I've been left. That is how life goes mate. I just like talking.

everyone's life sucks at one point or another, I recently broke up with my girlfriend of 2 and a half years which I mentioned earlier, I moved to a new town and lost all my friends, and all I do is work, and play guitar.

but life goes on, I know there is no point to being all emo, because soon I will finally have my license, I will be able to get back up to my friends, I will be able to sustain a relationship, and life will get better.

life gets worse before it gets better, and so on. it's an endless cycle, so the most you can do is push through the hard times and enjoy the good times.

I love being alone

If I had to see my friends both in school and in private more than I do now I would scream

Go fishing man!!!!!

I know it sound retarded, but trust me! Its awesome and you can pass time and meditate(without a ****ing bamboo mat and going "aaaaoooooommm") and collect your thoughts and get yourself aware of your own way of thinking. And as you master the different skills youll discover that you basicly dont "need" anyone, but at the same time its nice to have some peeps around you.

Yes, I am similar. Had a girlfriend for a while and now none. No friends makes the situation worse. I am always alone. Although everyone is always alone. No one can be with you in your own mind. I seem to be stuck with myself.
