What if you wake up one day and find out that you're all alone in this world? What will you do?
In order for that to happen the other 7,000,000,000 billion or so people will all have have to have died. That could create some problems. However, if you're talking about having no relatives, no wife, mother, father, brothers or sisters or cousins, or even friends in the world, then you'd be just like millions of other people who manage to live life despite their being 'alone.'
My view? I don't think it is possible to be entirely alone, no, not even if one is marooned alone on an island. It might be lonely on that island, but the fact that there are others in the world brings with it hope that the aloneness won't last forever.
Take the day off!
Seriously it would depend on the nature of the planet and why everyone else no longer exists. Was it a disease or an act of God/nature that killed everyone else? Are there still functioning buildings with electricity, running water, is there adequate animal and plants for me to eat to sustain life?
I believe the natural thing to do is to assume if (I) survived there must be others who did as well. Very much in the way we have a difficult time believing earth is (the only planet) with "intelligent life".
Most likely I would explore the planet while documenting my exploits in a journal until I died or found another person.
Explore and try to find other survivors. When I realize that I am alone indeed; I would try to communicate with my Creator for guidance in a Carmelite manner. I would never give up until my time came upon me (though)...
@everyone- Glad to read such nice answers
However, I was thinking about a sci-fi scary movie scene where one find's himself/herself all alone in a spooky environment with no human beings in sight.
I will pray to God and then find a shelter, look for water, and make some food.
The first thing would be to find a clean water source, secondly food would be the priority then protection. Therefore a rifle or pistol would be required. If there are other people in the vicinity they could be predatory and you have the water! Harsh I know but true,

Do You Believe In Aliens? Do You Think We Are Alone?Do you believe in Aliens from outer space. Do you think they will some day show up here on earth. You know I really thought that by this point in my life ( age 62 ) that aliens from outer space would have already showed up here on earth. It does...
