    What is the difference in being alone and feeling lonely?

    My girl leave me about two weeks now, she didn't had the courage to tell me. I guess all those things she tell me, about how much she love me, it was a lie. The thing is I fall for it, and I should have known better. I make my emotions get the better of me. Its a learning process for me and I will try not to make this happen to me twice.

    Being alone is an actual physical reality. Being lonely is a state of mind.  I know it's a cliche and not much help, but the quote from Tennyson applies- "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all". Perhaps this loss of yours will open a door to some nice lady that you can be happier with.

      Thanks PhoenixV, we should all learn from our past mistakes and I have learned a lot. As Soren Kierkegaard suggest that life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.

    Being alone is to be in any place without any other people around you. Feeling lonely can happen whether you're not around other people or are standing in a crowd.
