So, who on here has been lonely before? I'm gonna assume everyone has at some point. However, some are probably lonely a bit more often than others, and it's pretty likely that I fall into that category. Though I have friends, I'm a relatively isolated guy and I spend a vast majority of my time by myself. My life is also dreadfully lacking in affection. Given that I just started college and I'm insanely busy, this hasn't been much of an issue lately, but eventually, that lack of closeness really starts to get to me.
I've found that when loneliness starts setting in, nothing helps better than grabbing my teddy bear and just snuggling the crap out of it for awhile. Surprisingly, it legitimately satisfies that painful craving for affection and within a few minutes I feel completely better. Don't get me wrong, it's still not as good as actual human contact/affection, but it's a great temporary solution. Does anyone else do this? Can you relate at all?
