If you’re bored of sitting alone at home every day, there are ways to deal with your loneliness. Most people will advise you to call up your friends, join a club, or purchase a pet. Of course, there are some other techniques that you can use that are a little less conventional. If you want some new ways to deal with your loneliness, look no further:
1. Pillow Pal
If you’ve ever watched How I Met Your Mother, you’ve seen Lily with Marshpillow, a pillow she created that wears her husband’s clothes. Whenever they’re apart, she’ll sleep with it and have romantic dinners with it. What’s stopping you from doing the same? Grab a pillow, and dress it up like Jon Hamm. You can even spritz some cologne on it, or draw on a face. Don’t knock it ‘till you try it. It’s one of the best ways to deal with your loneliness.
2. Build a Robot
How hard can it be, really? You know everything about electronics. You grew up using them, and you always have a phone or keyboard beneath your fingers. All you have to do is find a few pieces of metal, and create your new best friend. It’ll take an hour, tops.
3. Move Away
If you think you’re lonely now, you’ll be even lonelier once you move to a country where you don’t speak the language. You’ll have difficulty communicating, and things will be worse than ever. Once you can’t take it anymore, move back to your original home. Now that you know what true loneliness feels like, you’ll never feel isolated again. It might cost you a few thousand dollars, but won’t your newfound knowledge be worth it?
Step one: buy as much chocolate as your shopping cart can fit. Step two: eat as much chocolate as your stomach can fit. It’s a scientific fact that chocolate makes you smile more than any man can. If you get upset after reading a romance novel, fill your craving with a Hershey’s kiss. It’s better than the real thing.
While you’re asleep, you have all of your dream friends to keep you company. They may not be real, but while you’re slumbering, it feels like they are. Why ruin a good thing with the truth? Go to sleep, and enjoy your gang of friends. They won’t be there when you wake up, but you’ll see them again tomorrow night.
6. Get Married
Find a stranger on the street, introduce yourself, and propose. There are plenty of places that will make your union legal without asking too many questions. Everyone knows that you don’t have to be in love to get married, so you might as well do it now rather than later. You can’t be lonely when you’re in a relationship, right?
7. Tea Party
Hey, it worked when you were a kid. Gathering around all of your stuffed animals, and having a tea party with them will get rid of your loneliness instantly. You want to feel young again, don't you? This is the perfect way to do so.
Everyone has moments where they feel alone, but you should know that that's never the case. You have friends, family, and the AWS staff that care deeply about you! When you're lonely, what do you usually do?
