Lonely girlfriend dating
For as long as I can remember, I've watched my friends pair off. As an introvert, I not only like my alone time, I need it. I said it: "I'm lonely."

People become lonely in relationships for many different reasons but most often, it has to do with feeling disconnected from their partner.Loneliness can be a perpetual cycle as it leads to you further closing yourself off to the people around you, causing you to feel even lonelier.If you’re feeling alone in your relationship, resist the temptation to hibernate in yourself, and your secluded routine. If you’re feeling lonely and all you really want to do is nothing, make the effort to get busy.I'm not saying it's wrong that I'm not the top priority (of course family should come first). Giphy When you're not part of a couple and you're living alone, physical touch goes out the window. I'm talking mundane, everyday, almost-no thought-put-into-them touches.But for the perpetually alone sometimes it'd be nice to be first. Last week, I realized it had been months since I’d been touched by another person. But when the loneliness is overwhelming and all-consuming, I can't help it. I have an outstandingly good group of friends and family, but as much as I want them to be (and as much they wish they could be), they aren't enough. Giphy Stop telling me how you'd love to have some peace and quiet, or a night where no one touches you. There is a profound, bone-deep difference between "alone time" and being lonely.
This can be related to feeling unloved and undervalued, and being insecure in the partnership.
