Anything else?


Iím the same I live alone, I broke up with a nice lady recently because I know she is better off without me, even though she wanted to be with me knowing all the issues I have. But I know is better this way. I rather just dedicate to fight the depression and declare war to a--holes in the world. I think you do what you want mate, life is too short.

I don't see why being different means you have to be alone, I just see how it is harder to make friends.


I am very weird, but I have two friends (no more, no family, no acquaintances, never had a boyfriend -I haven't had my first kiss yet and I am 22yo, I don't go out-). They are not "normal" young people, though they are not pathologically abnormal as I am. It's not mandatory to be like other young adults to avoid isolation.

Thank you TLC for the beautiful but heartbreaking story.

Thank you captaineo for reminding me that there are things I need to be doing for my mental health (walking, eating healthy and creative activities etc.). I needed that reminder.

Warm wishes to all.

I have high standards, something which I can overrule but don't want to for some genetic reason, so if I want to mingle I'll have to at least be obviously not 'dull and crazy.'


I am sorry you're going through this... Sunshine will come, I don't know when, but I guess it will come... for all of us? Best wishes.

I know, I know. Right. I am going through the same issue with a person I know. I know he's better off without me, a lot better off.

I try to compress the loneliness inside me. I listen to music, browse the internet (reddit is my favorite website), and study sometimes. I'd like saying picking a hobby like computer programming will help us well.


I'd also suggest reading novels and biographies of great people like Stephen Hawking.


Going out also helps.

Thanks TLC, we are tuned in. I have the same interests as well, just have not taken my head out of my .... to get started and going. Will read Stephen Hawking. Will check out Reddit. Thanks a lot again.
