If there are pharmacological treatments for other social pains like depression and anxiety, why not loneliness?

Non-medical remedy for loneliness: get thee onto the internet and into some sort of social interaction (facebook, twitter, skeptical community, etc). There are a bazillion people there who will gladly tell you what they think of you and what your problem is, especially after you express an opinion or post a photo.

Or, perhaps get off the goddamned internet and go socialize with other real people.

Just be careful they aren't Rethuglicunts. :)

Relax.

Take this pill and never feel lonely again.

It will even help you get off the internet and wander aimlessly and alone all over town, but never feel lonely.

Unless of course you’re a Rethuglicunt, then you would want to be careful they aren’t Democrassholes. :)

Indeed.

Let's all keep hating each other until we die.



You go first...... :)



Perhaps you can put in a bad word with Sky Daddy for me?

Misanthropy is the best cure for loneliness. A dab of agoraphobia helps too

Call me a traditionalist, but ethanol has been the drug of choice for lonliness for eons. No need to re-invent the wheel.
Such potential!

Indeed Anax, indeed.

I blush to the roots of my hair to admit I enjoy it nevertheless. I refer to it somewhat dysphemistically as 'Liquid Shithead'.

Well, me too. A bit too much for my own good probably.
