DUBLINGUY Wrote:Hi Guys, I have just joined up today. I agree totally with your comments on Pets. If it was not for my Westie, I would have no one to come home to in the Evening's, Share weekends with (except my family and parents)... I been single for over two years now and I lost all my friends during my 11 year relationship as my partner did not want me socialising with my friends.
Now I don't know where to begin to get it all back together again.
I live in a rural area in Ireland and it is difficult for people to come visit. So I pretty much spend all my time out of work on my own.
I have even started to taking vacations on my own, which is really crapie i guess, But i love to travel and if I dont have anyone ot do it with I jsut go ahead and go on my own...
I would love to bring my Dog with me but i would not put him true the hassle of flying..

DublinGuy - Happy belated St. Patricks - if you're Irish and Catholic. As you've said, its time for you to start over and I'm sure all will be fine. Perhaps you can reconnect with your old friends?

I'm starting over myself. Over the years I've lost friends: some moved, some got married. And I have been unable to make new friends. I have aquaintances that I talk to and see but nothing that I feel is a substantial relationship though I do call them my friends. I'm left with one best friend and its a horrible feeling at 36 years old to know that I have only one true friend left.

My husband works long hours, and I have my mom and sister but other than that my family lives in Italy, so I have little family here is the U.S.

I've just added another pet to my household. Its a cat that I've been fostering. So this makes 4 cats I have. My friends tease me that I'm a "crazy cat lady" which I don't like. I know they're joking but usually a crazy cat lady has at least 20 cats. I'm nowhere near that. Wink I just couldn't help keeping the cat because he's such a sweetie.

I have a dog called Cha, but we call him goons which is a slang tamil word for chubby, although he isn't chubby. But oh! Don't I love the way he greets me everyday, morning or night, even when i've just walked out for 5 minutes and when I return, he's there jumping up and down and barking and so happy to see me!I don't think any human would jump up and down when they see me.

Dublinguy:
I do relate when you say your partner did not like you being with your friends, sometimes i feel my partner is liek that,as when i did work and was asked out with work people, he went in a bad mood with me, and i felt as though he may as well be saying he does not want me to hang with anyone!, sigh! I dont know thoughSad
Colette:
Look on the bright side, at least you can say you do have one true friend,not many of us here can say that, as thats why we are here,even if we kinda have friends, they cant be true enough, as then we would not feel so lonely!.If your cats make you feel good hun, who cares how many you get as long as they and you are happyWink
Vivid:
LOL, if you had a human jump up and down at you i think the people in the white coats would be sent out!!!LOL, No your right, no human could ever be that pleased to see you!, its sweet how dogs no matter what mood your in always manage to cheer you upBig Grin

I have two cats. I like petting them and spending time with them when I am at home by myself. Although they don't really help me with my lonliness since I really need someone to talk to who will understand me. But my cats can put me in a better mood if they do something funny!

Awl, Broken
I know how it feels, that as much as your pets cheer you up, sometimes you need someone like an agony aunt, i would be glad to be anyones agony aunt, dont be afraid to talk to me, if you would like to?what do you feel others need to understand about you?
You are not alone here, we all know how loneliness feels, dont be a stranger, if you are, how can you find a friendWink
I feel i am so understanding i take some people aback how laid back i am about their problems,nothing bothers me, as long as you have a heart, thats all i ask of a friendBig Grin

I think that EVERY one who is lonely can use a little dog. Not a big dog, but a little dog that you can carry. That you can bring practically everywhere with you. I used to hate dogs. I may be allergic to them. However, I would like to have one in a few years when I move and have a backyard for the dog to play in.

Pets are GREAT for lonely people. Cats are not that friendly usually so I would avoid them. I used to be a cat person, too!
