That's tough. There isn't much that is worse then loneliness.

The posters have some good ideas for help. You really should get a dog to carry you through the bad times. They can love you too.

Not to sound like an ass,.......

But 1984 was a lomg flippin time ago. I've been cheated on by ex-wives.
1st was while deployed to Desert Storm, second was during the Bosnia Conflict.

I could have easily stuck my head in the sand. Stand the F up
like a Man and deal with it. Either get your azsz off the couch and
meet people, or get to a doctor and get treatment. The road you
have been on, and are traveling down, is headed no where.

Only YOU can Quit feeling sorry for yourself and do something about it!

If I were you I would try online dating. I understand you live in a rural area. Are there any towns or citys nearby? You could try plentyoffish.com or okcupid.com. I would avoid match.com. Even if you aren't looking for a wife, you could still find someone worth meeting occasionally for dinner or coffee and conversation.

Hows your personal appearance? Do you look like you have given up on life? I suggest (if you are able) getting yourself in shape and losing some weight (if you need to). In addition to making yourself more attractive to the wimmins, it will help with self esteem and depression. Also people will notice that you look better and are happier and more confident and may just know someone that they are willing to hook you up with.

If you can find an escort in a nearby city, it may be a good way to get your groove back instead of having to do so by trial and error after you meet someone.

What part of VT are you in? Im in VT, too. I've got friends from the Morrisville/Stowe area on down to the Middlebury/Rutland area who attend church, shoot, brew beer and mead, and get together periodically just to visit or have a meal. If you want to get in touch and meet some new people, let me know. It would definitely broaden your exposure and increase the likelihood of you meeting someone.

I'm married, with three kids and one grandkid. I love my wife dearly. She's my best friend. I can't imagine being without her. My heart goes out to you. Even if you don't get in touch, I hope you find someone with whom you can hit-it-off and begin to develop a decent relationship.

Good Luck, and don't give up.

So which is it? And you seemed to remember your EX-GF quite a bit for a while, you were slamming her all over the internet.

Don't know what to tell ya. Felt like that before for a long time. Married now, but no kids & most of my friends have moved away or started having kids & don't have time anymore. Add to that, 2 years of unemployment, job for 15 months & suddenly, unemployed again & I don't have a lot of contacts anymore either.
Found my wife 11 years ago @ church, when I wasn't really looking anymore. Good luck, it sucks being lonely, whether one is alone or not.

The longer I ponder this, the more I get out of it, it's meaning has grown and expanded greatly since I first read it many years ago. When I did first read it, I took it as a flowery "Harden the **** Up"-kinda thing, but it's subtlety has revealed itself gently to me over the years.

Quoted now in the hopes of fostering some inspiration. Good luck.
