    Unhappy How do you get past the loneliness?

    So, I have been separated for two weeks now and I've been spending my days with friends and family.

    However, at night I fall in to a big black hole and I feel so alone.

    Does that feeling fade over time?

    He's left the state for now so that kind of makes me feel even more alone.

    Sigh.

    Hugs honey!Breakups suck. They just do. But you need to say 'I may be alone but I'm not going to be lonely!'Use the time to be as constructive as possible and enjoy your own company. Decide what you would really like to do. Learn something like a language or refurbish a piece of furniture or do some kind of craft; learning to knit or how the stock market works. Join bigpond movies or net flicks and hire movies or Tv shows you loved but you didn't watch them because your partner didn't like them. When they come in the mail, it's something to look forward to even if you need to watch Grease. Every. Damn. Night. If you want to! (yes I have done it)Change your evening routine - find recipes for face or hair masks and make them. Buy some hot new PJs, not lingere (unless you want). Make the evening sometime to look forward to!All the best

    Hope you are feeling a little better today.
    It does take time to adjust.
    I find I spend my evenings on forums, watching tv, ebay, facebook and I want to read more. Keep the tv or radio on for background noise. Make a phone call to someone, make an effort to be cheery and focus on the good things when in conversation.

    Default How do you get past the loneliness?

    It does pass but even now with a partner (don't live with him) some nights I get lonely.
    Like others have suggested, do things you enjoy and can get into.
    I find reading a series of books or tv shows is a good way to past the time.
    Maybe look at taking on another job you can do from home?

    I don't really notice the loneliness as my XH was never around anyway. I have a partner now though we don't live together but we text constantly. I also spend time on bubhub and have a lovely group of girls I talk to on Facebook most days.

    I feel lonely an awful lot actually.

    Even though I have work four days a week and ds has water polo on sun, tennis on thur and we go to church on the wknd and we see friends sometimes and have joined a single parents group I still am on my own , well with ds an awful lot. There are soo many hours in a day . Sometimes it drives me insane.
