    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.
    • Reputation Has Increased!   07/06/20

      Hello. You have been asking for it and it is finally here. We have increased the number of reputation given in a day from 25 to 50. We will see how well 50 works out and if that is enough. Please continue to provide feedback and we will reevaluate as needed. This change has been added to the site changes thread located here. Happy repping. Thank you.

I feel pretty alone now too. My boyfriend is going to boot camp for the next two months and I'll only be able to talk to him by letter. It'll be hard because he really helped me through a dark time in my life. I know it's just two months, but I'm afraid that it will feel like years.

Yes, of course. The majority of people will relate with you. They just don't say it...However I can confirm I do feel lonely really often. It's funny how there's so many lonely people in the world, we need to form a group hug or something lol

I feel you...

I'm in my 20s and in college and all my classmates seem to already have friends, meanwhile I'm always alone. 

I'm quite sociable in the classroom, people compliment me and sit with me and laugh at my jokes, but once class ends im all alone again. I've never tried getting classmates contacts bc I'm too nervous lol I just hurry out of class as quickly as I can. My sociability is just an act tbh, I'm deathly afraid of interaction and rejection.

I thought about joining a club at my school but I feel like I'd look silly walking into any of them and the thought makes me so anxious.

I feel like it's weird for someone my age to be so alone.

I'm lonely most of the time too since my ex best friend and only friend does not talk to me anymore since she found new friends/ better friends than me and threw me basically away.. I cried for days and felt really alone but I'm glad I have my family and whenever I feel shitty I hug my mom and feel a little better but to be honest I wish I had at least a few friends that really liked me and actually made efforts to hang out with me

You need to reevaluate your own personal inner happiness. Being jealous of other people's lives won't solve your own loneliness. Staying in a wrong crowd is much lonelier, you have to know how make yourself happy by yourself. Get comfortable in your own skin. And stop browsing other people's social media. You will be much happier offline than online.

I am pretty much always alone, especially cause I hate social media and people are so self absorbed.

It's painful somedays, and a mild annoyance other days.

i've been lonely for so long that i'm honestly just used to it. i don't really feel sad about it anymore

which is concerning

at least i love myself lol

i have a lovely boyfriend, but i wanna have friends to hang with when he's busy

i'm in the esports club rn, pushing myself and being more social to maybe make a couple friends :anime:

I'm at a point where I know lots of people and can probably consider them acquaintances but I don't feel I get down to a deeper level with the majority of the people I interact with.  It's like I do and I don't want friends, if that makes sense

I am an ugly person and I am in an eternal state of isolation even when in social gatherings.

I haven't had a friend in ages i'm pretty much alone all the time .My psychiatrist says that is my fault bc i'm not friendly but i don't do it intentionally ,is just the way i am. I know i have a shitty personality and to be honest i don't mind to be alone but there's sometimes that i'm bored and i don't have anyone to hang out or even to talk to and it sucks

Both my friends live far away from me, one of them is a good 8-10 hours from me and the other is planning to move 3 hours away. I'm unemployed at the moment and I study online so I literally never leave the house, I don't even know how adults can make friends. I get lonely to the point that it hurts, and I'm considering seeing someone about it though.

Hope this thread is still active, lol. My one good friend is overseas at uni and I haven't been able to make friends in my class at school due to anxiety (+other reasons I'd prefer not to get into :alpacaworry2:). The majority of the time when I'm at school, I try to watch videos and listen to music so that I wouldn't feel as alone... (sometimes I'd even text my mum). I'm trying to remain positive though, and I hope by the time I enter 2nd year, I'd have at least one acquaintance. :alpacasad:

i recently went to a house party concert type hybrid event with someone for the first time in forever and i feel so overjoyed having time with another person tht isn't in my immediate family or merely an acquaintance. she seems really sweet and i'd love to hang out more with her and open up to her, i'm only fearful that she'll up and leave me at a moments notice if i say or do anything wrong. i know i probably wont or if i do it may be forgiven, but there's just this tendency i have to push others away with who i am.

and thus i've had a cycle of friendships that dont last longer for more than 2 years, 1.5 if i'm lucky. i spent my formative high school years switching between schools and never maintaining contact with anyone, i'm terrible, and it's even harder in college. i want to get out, or go to a university, or something that allows me to form friendships due to proximity factors... almost nobody in community college wants long term friendships so i'm surprised i met someone who even cared about my existence. she's so nice and i dont deserve her, even early on she texted me the one day i was out of class in concern. i dont deserve people like this... i'm not sure how long our contact will last.
