What do you do when you're lonely?
I like solitude for the most part. When I do start to feel lonely, I get out a book.

6. My dear backtoblue...
I play here...

Or, if I'm restless, I'll get up, fold laundry, read something, like that.

It depends on the time of day too...

If it's late, I'll just go to bed.

And if I'm really inspired, I'll write a poem!

:hi:

10. I play here, too!
No better way to beat loneliness (in a non datasuspect kind of way) than a smile from my friends here! :pals:

7. Nothing, just wait for it to pass, which usually doesn't take long.
One of the advantages of being so asocial is that I'm rarely lonely. :)

16. I agree with your take.
Being lonely and the joy of solitude are really different things altogether.

24. I can't remember the last time that was a problem....
one of the pitfalls of having a significant other who is super-duper-mega clingy. I love him to death, but sometimes have to tell him that I need some time to myself.
