Just come out of an EA relationship and now doing things on my own. Feeling so lonely and lost!! So used to someone being there even though he was an a**e. I miss the company. How do you get over the lonelyness?

Keep busy. Find new tv shows to watch while doing chores. Read. Stay positive when you can. It's not easy but you'll get used to it. I actually prefer being alone after 8 years together.

Thanks it prob will get easier. Just the initial shock of it has got me tonight. Feeling a bit sorry for myself!

Whatever you do, don't eat to fill the loneliness... talking from experience here...
It probably makes me sound like a right saddo but, as I can't go out to socialise or do any activities , I read- lots of books, newspapers and magazines online , brain train , use a meditation app. Make an effort to phone people. It's hard going tbh.
