Social loneliness is brought on by a lack of social network. Everyone needs people for "hanging out."
Emotional loneliness is the absence of a close emotional relationship. Those superficial acquaintances that can cure social loneliness won't touch the emotional variety. That explains why people can party for weeks and still feel lonely.
Flux Factory was a social network and I remember being very concerned about leaving because I would lose that, but I had to go.
Now I know a lot of people, but few I would call friends.
I have been arguing with the boy who is angry because I get a lot of anxiety in social situations, but refuse to go/stay home. He is concerned about hanging out with me, and so he just goes out without me.
I just sorta feel like: what do I need to be looking for outside? Everything costs. Most of those people are not my peers and will not be my friends. Plus, I hate small talk and self-aggrandizing bullshit.
I need a social activity that will bring me into a social network......still waiting for my letter from Yale.
