Yes, particularly the more people there are and if I don't know a lot of them.

I do all the time. Some times it is the best feeling, but then there are the times when it is the worst, most loneliest feeling.

Sure, I feel alone when I arrive at a party or event and realize I know no one except the host.

My idea of a good time is finding someone funny and intelligent. Then we find a quiet spot to talk and laugh together.

It comes from joy in being alive, and talking to someone who isn't boring you to death. We are conspiring in an unspoken, momentary, twinkly: "I like you and you like me. Isn't it lovely?"

Not necessarily alone but an alien observer. Sent to take notes on a weird species

Always. I'm not good with large social gatherings. Especially with people I don't know. I'm not one for small talk much.

I am a square peg for a round hole.

Yup, at church ?

Why do you go to church?

@marga my niece sings and nephews play in a church band so I’ll go to support them and see them perform some times.

@MarlaPaine Oh, I see.

I feel especially, conspicuously alone in a room full of people. I'll avoid it if I can.

Home alone, with my dog, I feel right.

2

Sure do.

2

All the time. I swear, humans are bloody herd animals, and here I am, thinking like a solitary cat.

2

All the time, I find people sometimes just get together to hear themselves talk, rarely is there a good topic of conversation come up

Sometimes, it's usually time for me to leave when that happens.

Every day. I've worked in this hospital for 3 years and my boss forgot about me

@valerina well if you look at it this way they forgot to fire me once so that worked out in my favor

No. If I'm in a room with people I don't know, I'll strike up a conversation if the notion hits me, or I may just observe until someone comes over to me; I'm quite congenial, a lot like my father that way. It seems to make the world a better place for me. Of course, there are times I may purposely avoid some people, but I don't associate that with loneliness as much as, perhaps, being in a "mood."

1

Yes, and sometimes l am grateful for it.

1

Most of the time. I pretty much like staying in my mind especially when I'm not with like minded people.

1

Sometimes, especially if the party is filled with. Conservatives. I know if i open my mouth there will be trouble.

Oddly enough I used to really like parties and large gatherings. Now, not so much.

Is feeling alone in a room of people something you want to change? What do you do with that feeling?

0

Not so much anymore because I am easily entertained by watching others. I have wondered what the hell I was doing in the room with some people. Sometimes I wish I had been more active on the way home and feel alone

I used to feel akward and alone for many years, but it was a deep self conviction that I did not belong or was not worthy, A few years ago I was able to turn a corner and not feel that I was worthless or below every ones standards.
My only regret is that it took me far to many years to get this, but so very happy that now I do care about myself and do what is best for me
