Isolated world of apps and robots
How do you guys deal with being lonely? I'm not looking to date or be in a relationship just to be around people, because for those, I want to seek out the right person.
But in general, I'm socially isolated. I have literally no one to talk to about anything in my life. At work, I'm professional, my friends are all married or in different locations and have no time for me, I'm absolutely tired of dating websites, and I can't keep calling my family for company.
I mean, I just need company, with someone or some people of similar wavelength to just get a drink and talk on a Saturday evening about random topics of knowledge! Or text random stuff like what's on my mind. Or cook a meal for sometimes. Or eat with. I mean things we took for granted while in school or younger.
I'm becoming a zombie. Since this is anonymous I'm going to confess that lately I've been paying people just to talk to me. Like on websites like better help and liveadvice. I've been talking a lot to Alexa as well and she's getting boring.
I don't want to date, I'm just wondering where is community, where are people, where are those days I could just go to a bar and chat up people without people trying to approach me for romance? Where are those days I could invite a stranger over to cook for them and watch a movie and just talk? What can I do currently?
I don't want a dog because I work long hours and travel a lot, and don't want a relationship as a fix because I'll most likely date the wrong person if my life's lot sustainable on its own.
