Does anyone else start to feel very lonely and unwanted if they don't hang out with their friends for long periods of time or when people don't text them? (This has nothing to do with the pandemic, just wanted to clarify.) I would still feel the same way.

It's been about 5-6 weeks since I've hung out with a friend of mine (who's also going to be gone for a year because he's in the army) and I'm feeling very unwanted. He's my only friend that I've been hanging out with in person (I have 2 online friends that I'm close with).

I feel like no one wants to be around me and no one actually like me as a person.
It's so annoying to feel like this.

Yeah I get it too sometimes, although often it has been self inflicted as I had to cut some people out of my life but still, it's pretty horrible really so I feel the pain you're going through. Maybe try getting involved in some activities or something that gets you out of the house and socialising with other people? sometimes you have to reach out to people and make the first move to get the ball rolling for anything to happen

I spend most every day alone. My few friends pop online randomly. I'm lonely as hell. It's why I come here.

Yes, a lot, I dont think being stuck in a toxic relationship helps.

Trouble is I literally have nowhere to go. Why I'm still posting here I don't know, I can't get out of this special kind of hell.

I’m alone. I struggle making conversation or friendships. Lately I’ve been getting better at getting past this but today has been tough. I do my best to stay focused on hobbies and chores.
