I used to live on my own. I never felt lonely (too busy) but what you could try is something i used to do. Put the radio on, but not music. A channel such as radio 4. That way it sounds like there are other people chatting away in your home and (interesting topics) while you're in.:)

Go on coach trips - at the weekend if you work Monday to Friday.

 

I go, sometimes with a friend and neighbour and sometimes on my own, I go antique hunting, have a nice lunch and buy a paper/magazines to read on the coach if I'm on my own.

 

Always give yourself something to look forward to;)

Schizophrenia's good to have for combating loneliness. There's always someone to talk to ... even if you're by yourself.

Start now, then when the time comes you will have a support network.

@J's Mum the only thing that can fight loneliness is by not being lonely. Although that sounds elementary, it is actually really difficult for a lot of people. I have neighbours that decided to share a house to combat loneliness, perhaps that is a solution?

You have to find out what interests you and just go for it. If you crave company then find an interest where you will meet people who share that interest. There are hundreds of clubs and associations to cater for all tastes. Have you looked at the 'Sheffield Interests Group? You might find something there that appeals.

 

I've heard it said that you can be alone even when in a relationship, so I think it is very much a state of mind.
