Default Re: Loneliness

you will find as I have that americans and america is very cliche and people are not very inclusive or warm or friendly. They are cold toward one and other.

I blame this country for why so many people are lonely.

I used to be all alone just like you until I discovered how you can be happier outside the USA.

Its much easier to make friends with people in Latin America and other places like the Philippines.

Some of the best friends I have ever made are Mexicans. They are very warm and inclusive and always invite you out to parties, social gatherings like going to the beach etc.

That would be my advice as in my experience most americans are insecure, flaky and unreliable as friends at least.

why not try a trip to Mexico, Latin America, or south east asia might broaden your horizons a bit and you can see not all the world isn't all as lame and lonely as the USA.

Hi, I'm sorry you're feeling this way. I know the feeling all too well. Have you ever thought about getting involved in something your interested in like taking arts and crafts, pottery or knitting classes if that is something you are interested in. You could meet friends there. I know there is a website called Meetup.com and you just put in your zip code and they have alot of groups of people that get together for different interests. We're here for you

❤️❤️ ((((sadveiledbride)))) ❤️❤️. I wish you well, sweetheart, in your quest for friends. These relationships can take time and patience to build. But you do have value and wholeness in and of yourself. It may be of interest to you - or not - that as an extreme introvert I have the opposite problem ó that is, how to keep people at a distance from me without hurting or offending them!

I am sorry this is your experience. It is not mine at all. I do not think you can generalize a country this way. I think its the celebration of the individual that makes America a welcome place. I think sometimes we are jaded and suffer from a "grass is greener on the other side" sort of situation.

I do wish you wouldn't generalize like this. I do not believe most americans or most of any particular country are one certain way. By saying that you are demonstrating the very qualities you claim to be against.

I donít understand the purpose of these quite offensive generalizations. So you are telling people on this forum (many Americans) that they are insecure, flaky and unreliable. Really? Itís uncalled for. If you have difficulty making connections with others, it doesnít make the entire country ďlameĒ.

You are very wrong saying this. You cannot say this about a country just because you had a bad experience with some people. Americans for the most part are a very friendly, accepting, caring and generous people.
