Doesn't loneliness imply a desire for companionship?
>> No. 18259 [Edit]
Perhaps, but most people here have probably lost faith in human companionship.
>> No. 18261 [Edit]
If you mean "companionship" as in "romantic companionship", not even close. That's a very bold and inaccurate assumption to make.

The dictionary definition of loneliness, and the one that the board generally seems to go by, is:
"sadness because one has no friends or company"

It refers to feelings of general isolation and lack of contact with ANY human beings- not a lack of romantic partners or a desire for intimacy. Indeed, the overwhelming majority of people here not only have no desire for 3D intimacy, but also frown upon it.

You can feel lonely even in the company of others, in fact sometimes more so than when you are alone.
>> No. 18271 [Edit]
I've never really thought of the board's name as literal. "/so/ - Depression" would probably be more accurate.
