ChocoBears Posted September 3, 2011 Share Posted September 3, 2011 It's Friday night and I dread the weekends. I'm so used to spending my weekends with my ex, being on my own on a weekend brings on a lot of anxiety. I crave human interaction and intimacy. I'm almost tempted to sign up on online dating just to spend time with some people, but I know that's not a good idea because I'm not in any state of mind to start dating seriously, and distracting myself with "dates" doesn't seem healthy right now. I have friends, but they are not available to hang out with me all weekend. There are blocks of time, especially at night, where I am all alone and it makes me feel so bad. I miss my ex so much more then. I know there are groups I can join to meet new friends, but I often don't feel like I have the energy or motivation to go out there and mingle with people. I want the comfort of a relationship, someone that I can just hang out with, and be myself with. Mingling with a bunch of strangers and trying to force a smile when I'm feeling quite depressed isn't appealing to me. I can put on a DVD or clean my apartment, but there's still that emptiness gnawing at me because I don't have anyone around. How do you guys manage the anxiety caused by loneliness? Link to comment
