So as the title says. I am just feeling really lonely. DP and I had a minor disagreement and he went to bed, bub is in bed and I was sitting here feeling a bit crud and well a bit lonely. I love my family so much, but I miss interaction with other adults except DP.
It got me thinking... I have a wonderful family, but only talk to a portion (for no bad reason just theres a group I talk to heaps (which no one lives near me) and the rest I just see on family occasions). I have almost no friends and not from a lack of trying, I try all the time but even in school I was the kid who got picked on and who no one wanted to be friends with. So I only have a small, tiny portion of friends (and only one of them gives me the time of day but they dont live near me) but I try to befriend them and they don't ever seem keen to talk to me. Which leaves me with really only my sister, who is wonderful but obviously I can't rely on her all the time.
Theres been a few times of late I would of loved to have someone (an adult) other than dp to spend time with, and a few times I have felt a bit blue and I dont have anyone to say how I feeling and just keep bottling it all up. Even writing this I feel stupid.
There is no real reason for my post and I am not out to get pity. I am just really sad at the moment and I just have no one to vent to and I just need to get it out.
If you need to vent/get it out. How do you do it if you don't have anyone to talk too?
P.S Pardon the typos, I tried to proof read this but bet you there is still heaps.

If you live near Melbourne, I'd be happy to meet up for a coffee with you?

Most of my friends (so 1 person) lives interstate. The only family near me is my 15 year old sister. I try and make friends but most people my age are only interested in partying and it does get very lovely.
I spend most of my time with DP but she's out at work a lot.
I occupy myself with tv and the Internet. It might not be healthy, but at least it's company. The Internet is always connected, people Aren't.

I know that feeling. It sucks.
I have a total of two friends in this town. Plus my parents. It gets very lonely sometimes.
If I need to talk to someone, I log on to bubhub there's usually someone kicking around that'll be up for a chat. Just start a random thread called 'who's bored and wants to chat?' - all sorts of conversations will start to happen
You never know, you might end up making some awesome friends. I met one of my best friends on here about 6 years ago. She's no longer a member, lives on the other side of the country and we've never met in person but we talk regularly on the phone and stuff.

Thank you so much for the replies, you are all so lovely. Sadly I am in NSW, although I would love to be back in Melb again Maybe when I get a chance to come down I can meet some of you
And Purple Lily thank you so much for your lovely words, you made me tear up. I never get compliments, not even from DP. Just made me feel really special.
I think my feelings are being a little heightened lately with just a few small niggly things. Like DP running his finger along my lip and not saying anything, but I knew he was noticing darker hair by my lip (haven't bleached it in yonks). Him not saying anything but clearly noticing made me feel crap and I look so haggered right now, a make over is something I need desperately.
I decided to remove the part about being excluded this week incase it comes up in a search.
It's one of those crappy weeks I think. But if anyone of you would like to chat to me I would love to talk to you all.
I think I need a visit to the I have a funny funny thread.

Where in NSW do you live? I live in NSW but my boyfriend is in Victoria so I do a crapload of travelling.
