The days are fine... it's just the nights that drive me crazy. I have no one to talk to at night that makes me feel like I'm appreciated or liked. I feel like I just need someone to talk to that can relate to me or something.
Just about every night I go on chat but that doesn't seem to help me much with the loneliness. Does anyone have any advice for me?
I stay at home all the time because I'm not in college yet and I don't have a car either. I also don't have a job. I've applied online to several jobs but no one has replied to me. Any advice on how I could feel any less lonelier? Your advice would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe you could listen to songs, turn the radio or tv. Or draw if you're into it. Personally, drawing distract me from the negative thought. :D

If chat doesn't help, try hang out with close friend.

I also think that you should pick up a hobby. It can distract you and give you some confidence.

I can't help much but I can relate. I have no friends anymore because they all went to university and there's really not much to do around here -_-

I feel the same way. One of the things I do is try to watch comedies at night. Sometimes I laugh and forget that I feel terrible. It doesn't work for very long, but temporary is better than nothing

feel better ^^ I hope I helped a little

Luckily I have siblings so I'm not completely alone. Though when I'm depressed I do isolate myself, which isn't a good habit :(. And I'm in the same boat as you, barely any friends, no car, no job, no life outside of school :no. Watching tv helps. Playing video games helps for me (but that's a guy thing, I'm not sure what girls do). Also I come here and listen to others who have similar problems and try to help them out, that makes me feel better also :)

My favorite shows seem to help me..so does music, video games, internet, reading and sleeping. I daydream a **** load also. (sadly, true.)

Fell the Same Way. Even Picking up a hobby or cleaning or just doing something productive, wile doing it alone can weigh on u. Comedy shows always get my mind off it for the 30 minutes + the 5 more minutes while i'm still laughing at the joke i heard in the beginning of the show, after that lonely time =[

I sadly can relate to you.
I mostly do what incito said, I watch comedies, either shows or comedians, that distract me and make me laugh. Cause usually when i'm laughing, I forget everything else and it just feels good to.
If you ever want to talk somebody, i'm here.

I feel the same way, except I am a freshmen in college. I still don't really have anywhere to go.
I like to go on the chatroom too. I watch those late night talk comedy shows like Conan and Craig Ferguson, and they just make me laugh and feel good. I play the drums too, so sometimes I spend a lot of time trying to learn a new song, and it takes my mind off of everything else.

I can't help with the other stuff since I don't have a social life either :)b) but for jobs, you can't just wait for employers to call you back. You have to contact them for an interview, it shows that you really want that job. It's kinda like a first impression thing, I guess. Good luck!

I know exactly how you feel , in in a similar situation, sort of stuck in my last year of high school , majorly friendless just waiting for next year to start university , I just hope I find people more similar to me there because in kind of useless at meeting people haha. I often find myself bored at night too and then I just end up feeling all depressed about how lonely I am and all that wonderful stuff >< i used to love going on chat but the regular people I used to chat with slowly disappeared

Maybe you should focus on a hobbies or skills, Im thinking i might go and buy a keyboard and learn to play that' for something to do instead of wasting my time online
