Unbearably lonely. Yes, I get how pathetic that sounds. The problem (apart from being terrible at making friends) is that "chat" is painful for me. Usually even when about something I'm interested in. Basically I liked discussing politics and religion and study-related things through the night (ideally with alcohol), which is a social life only possible at university.
It's been just over two years since I left university, and I have not had anything resembling a friend in that time. I guess the obvious answer is to move to a city, but I was in York for a year of that time and it wasn't any different at all.
Trying to read more literature, which helps ease the loneliness whilst reading, but then it comes back even stronger when I've finished so probably not wise.
Should probably start posting on DiS more, but on the rare occasion I feel I have something worth saying, it's usually something likely to be misinterpreted and/or jumped on.
