Hi I am very sad because I don't have anyone to spend thanksgiving with. I have one son but he has to work all day and I have no one else. I'm just hoping that I can get through tomorrow and the weekend. I don't know how to deal with this kind of loneliness. It hurts so much.

Hi... My name is Eric. I'm 56... only child... divorced... no kids. Dad passed away when I was 29. Mom just passed away in July. She was 89. Had been staying with her for a few years... as she got older. Now I'm alone... kinda. I have many friends... but they all do family things on Thanksgiving. This my first time... not having anything to do on Thanksgiving. I live in Philadelphia. I was wondering... if there's places to go... in my area... where others have the same problem. Kinda like a get together and eat... hang out for the day. Just to have others around... going thru the same thing. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

I lost my husband years ago. I turned to work and taking care of my 2 sons. They are now grown and gone, have all but forgotten Mom.. they think a vase of flowers or a text every few weeks takes care of the life I gave up for them.. I'm glad and don't regret what I did but now Mom is alone and lonley.. now living in a place where I know no one .. I never took the time to worry about me until it seems too late.. my Mother passed away this past year and as a shock my brother six weeks later.. I love to cook and was use to a large family most of my life but seems everyone is gone.. I still fell young at 60 but afraid to venture out in s big town .. the holidays are the hardest time .. I want to cook but don't want to eat alone .. I need someone in my life !!!!

I am 55 and was married for 30 years. I started getting sick and my husband left me. I was told at the same time I could not work anymore. I moved from Canada to spain and I feel alone. Never had friends because of work and a busy life with 3 kids. They are grown up now and do not need me. I would love a boyfriend but it is hard as my balance is shot. I am very depressed, on medication. I can do less each day. Help please!

I recently retired and am starting to feel very lonely. I'm a very introverted woman and find making friends very difficult. I have 2 adult children but they have their own lives. I have a boyfriend but he just takes advantage of me and only comes when he needs something.
