Does anyone ever feel like this? You can be in a room full of people but you still manage to feel lonely? What's your views on this one?

Yes sometimes I do but then I also join in the conversation or what ever they are doing so I don't feel lonely. Maybe you should try it. It might help you. Hope I helped you. :)

Yeah, I've been there a few times. I usually don't get lonely unless I don't know anyone. Then I'll usually look around at the people and try to say Hello to some. Best way is  to talk and get to know anyone and you're not lonely anymore. The key is to mingle and talk to a few people or nod and acknowledge some of them. That't what I try to do when faced with that situation.

I see that two ways DWW....first if you're referring to a room full of people like a party, and you feel lonely there....yeah to some extent, just smile and say hello, usually starts a conversation. However, if you're talking about being around others and feeling lonely cos you miss someone, yep, have that happen too!

Yes I do! In my new class when everyone is talking to each other and I'm all alone sitting it feels like I'm in a quiet room rather than a noisy room!

I felt like that today in art.. I actually wanted to cry xD... I was surrounded by my friends but they were all conversing and when I spoke up, nobody replied back to me. I felt so alone!

Not exactly that, but close.

American author John D. McDonald described a boor as "somebody who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company". The same thing can apply to a room full of people. You may prefer your own company (McDonald's solitude) but, because of the circumstances, you are compelled to socialise and make small talk. That sort of situation bores me to tears.

Thanks for that. I used to think there was something wrong with me, but we're not alone. Lots of people prefer their own company -- we just don't normally talk about it.
