Being able to order almost anything on my computer and have it deliverd to my front door is great. Being able to Google search and learn new things helps as well. I live alone and fully understand isolation and loneliness.

Are there certain products/services you wish existed that you think could help?




If you have family and friends,spend time with them, although I do understand not everyone has family and friends, Do you enjoy reading?
Where you live,is there a local community centre? If there is,have a look at what classes are being held,could be something that you would enjoy,

No home is complete without the pitter patter of kitty feet.

Yes, a dog. Walking a dog is a top way to meet other people walking their dogs.

If you drink then have the occasional trip to your local Pub. If you do not, then go to your local Cafe instead. Have always noticed when I've been on holiday after arriving somewhere and got myself a drink, it's never too long before someone strikes up a conversation with you.

I am often lonely and can isolated myself well enough to get into the British Isolation Olympic Squad....But, I can handle it mostly! Though, I have learnt over time that the answer lies in YOU doing something about it. The answer will not come to you by sitting and wishing. You have to get out and about and join in.:xxx:

I don't ever feel lonely or isolated so I must be pretty fortunate.

if you are in good health then volunteering in your local charity shop a couple of days a week ..you will find the same people shop in there week after week so you get to know them ..or just volunteer to sort out the things in the back if you are a shy person ... offer to walk a neighbours dog for half an hour or so ..if you are driver they need volunteer drivers to take people to and from Hospital .. the blind always need volunteers to help with paper work ..

I just stay busy doing something at times call neighbor and say I want company usually get a "well come get me or come on over". We both have keys to each house and have an open door policy on going in. I do for the most part great with my dogs and friends and by myself usually just fine, really not an issue I have to deal with.
