|Given the like natures of the people frequenting this board, I would imagine that I'm not alone (hah) when dealing with loneliness.|
I've, over the past few years, grown more and more lonely with very little outside contact. My job does not interact with others much, topping out at the same few co-workers day in and day out.
I've only ever had a small group of friends, which has grown even more thread-bare with age.
Besides "go meet people" (how?), how do the fine people of HN deal with loneliness? Especially in the case your quite introverted? I like being alone, just not all the time, and not to the point of despairing loneliness.
I reach out, for fear that it envelops me.
