First off lets define loneliness as a lack of quality relationships with people rather than quantity. A person with many friends can still feel lonely as they may still feel disconnected from other people due to the lack of quality in their interpersonal relationships.
I have been feeling feeling feelings of extreme loneliness lately. Well actually I've always been lonely my entire life but I've always just ignored it and distracted myself from it by reading books/internet/videogames/ working out etc. But I just can't take it anymore. I can't keep living like this. It must stop.
I just don't know what to do about it. I just can't sustain relationships with people for a long period of time and they always break off after a few weeks or months. I haven't had any close friends for about 2 years now. I just don't know what to do to improve my situation.
Also loneliness is apparently a risk factor for premature death so that motivates me as well to not be lonely.
