But honestly Apexie why are men sooooo lonely? Why cant they even have guy friends ?
In terms of platonic friendships?
The longest amount of time I've spent alone was 3 months.
3 months with no internet, television, game console, all my friends had moved out of town, and I was scraping by on my bills on half of a former paycheck until I could move out of town. I think it's that you don't typically plan to end up in a situation like that, is the thing. It just sort of happens. In my particular instance, I was living in a college city at the time, where people move in and out of all of the time. Being social usually costs money in cities, money that you can't rationalize spending when you have bills. So unless you have some solidly built friendships, the barrel falls out at the bottom sotospeak.
In terms of romantic or sexual relationships?
I honestly don't really know.
I mean I have off days, everyone that's human does, but even while I was in my recovery period from my former longest relationship I was cognitively aware the whole time of the social conditioning that I was shedding about my preconceived notions of reality. In that instance, I think that for a lot of people, both men and women, the notion that they have been mislead or lied to as children is perhaps scarier than a continued adherence to that misleading or to those lies that perpetuate a false state of reality among the parameters of what they find comfortable. Or simply put: It's less painful to believe in a Disney love story than to believe in the reality that child stories are made for children because they aren't real, that's why they're stories, works of fiction, instead of history and fact.
