I should add

That I completely understand that other people have lives and are busy (especially at our age) and I am not trying to blame the friends I have for not being there more. I deliberately don't try and place too many demands because I don't want to lose them.

This is more about vicious circle of finding relationships of all sorts and people very difficult and yet being lonely. Or is that a catch 22? Some sort of cliche anyhow.


  1. I understand that. I'm solitary by nature, yet it isn't good for me, I could spiral down. I choose to be vivacious and outgoing and am the happier as a result. Best wishes to you.

  2. I find being outgoing exhausting. I have to be reasonably so for work and it drains me to the point that socialising becomes even harder than it normally is.

    I've found an explanation of sorts for this in the work of Elaine Aron on over sensitivity (in a neurological rather than neurotic sense) but while it explains it, it doesn't resolve it.
