Have you considered getting therapy? I'm not (just) being a dick, therapy really can help a lot and you seem to have a lot of inner conflict around vulnerability.

Speaking of which, have you seen Brene Brown's great talk on vulnerability?

Have a look at Amy Cuddy while you're at it:

And of course, because so many people struggle with this, Kathryn Schultz:

Being lonely is really hard, on a lot of levels. It can make people really neurotic. I think that a host of psychological ills arise from inadequate social support.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

I friggin' loved this one, and I'm glad you reposted it. 
If someone does the Fine, youre right, Im clearly a terrible person, Im Satan, Im the worst person alive, I should just die thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Cacioppo is not the most compelling speaker, but his work inspires me tremendously: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0hxl03JoA0

Great,  so all my problems are because I'm lonely.  And I've been regressing to a shit poster because my only friend is in jail.
Great.

Go check out therapy, like Nigel suggested.  Even look at group stuff, make more friends and the like.

Boohoo.  I work three nights out of every six and then when I'm not working, I'm studying.  Social life, friends...what are those?

Amazingly, I manage to not shitpost everywhere.

Yeah, but you also have a purpose to your life and a drive to achieve your goals. As far as I can tell, this kid has no goals and hasn't found any purpose or drive in his life yet.

I'm not really sure whether he's trolling or not. But then I figure, if he is trolling, what is he laughing about? "HAHAHA, I tricked Nigel into being supportive and compassionate!"

Yeah, how embarrassing.

This is true.

Meunster, do a post-grad degree.  Your life will become a remorseless hell of reading and studying to the point you won't care about being lonely.
