To really hate living alone

I know, it could be worse and I'm sure many love it.

I don't. It's dull, empty, cold, expensive and soul destroying.

I hate it.

Can you get a house mate,?

It sounds like it’s not for you. So ok, what could you change to make it better? Would a house share or getting a lodger help? Are there friends or family you could move in with? Could you get a pet, or work different hours so you’re not at home during the times you dislike the most? Go to the gym or join a Club? I’m sure MNetters could help you find a way to make it better for you.

No, to all those! My flat is 1 bed. And I find lodgers and house shares not really companionship based - when I've done it in the past I've lived with odd people and it's not been sociable at all.

Just moaning I know.

Could you take a lodger or move into a house or flat share, renting your own property out if you own it? Or is this more about not having/finding a romantic partner? flowers

I suspect OP is looking for support rather than solutions.

I live alone too OP. Only saving grace is that it’s better than living with randoms!

Sorry, cross posted.

I have a hate love relationship with being alone. I hate eating and sleeping alone but would otherwise prefer to live alone. I hate having my husband's stuff lying around. I hate having noises associated with other people living with you.

I quite like it. I miss having someone around some of the time but I prefer to sleep/relax alone.

Yes you can't really get a lodger or a house mate if it's a 1 bed flat.

I got a cat - keeps me company! Also a lodger some nights and DP some nights.

Can you invite friends round for dinners and for weekend visits and stuff?

What about a pet ? EVen a small one ?

I have cats smile and I am very fond of them but it's not the same as people
