    Have you tried attending any social groups or events @amro? This could help you to meet new people, and hopefully reduce some of those feelings of isolation and loneliness. 

    If you're looking to date, have you considered online dating at all? I know it's not for everyone, but many people do find success through meeting people that way :)

    Hello @amro

    Welcome to the community from me too, and I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling lonely.

    Thank you for your response and for explaining a bit more about your situation, it seems as though you've been through a lot, and I can understand why things might be difficult at times if all your family are so far away. Have you been able to see them at all recently, or do you have plans to?

    If you aren't perhaps ready to meet people in person you could try attending some online events and doing online dating. If you did meet somebody, there would be no pressure to meet them right away and I'm sure they'd be patient with you if you were hesitant about doing in person meet ups, it's important that you only do what you are comfortable with.

    @amro,
    I have seen a couple of your posts on the community and wanted to start off by saying how happy I am about that. You have such a warm presence and I know that anybody would be lucky to have you.

    It’s not the same situation at all, but 99% of my friendships were built online & I don’t have many people to chat to locally. My partner is also long-distance and I can completely relate to feeling lonely. However, the beautiful thing about the internet is that these people are only a phone call away, if that’s manageable. One friend texts me every day to say “oceans can’t stop how much of a best friend you are”, which warms my heart. 

    As @Ross_Scope said above, I have found online events to be a great way of being social, on days where the in-person stuff feels like too much. Many of them are also free, which makes them even more accessible. Are there any hobbies etc. that you would like to explore more? I’d be happy to source some links for you!

    About dating: doing it online isn’t easy, but it is possible to have good experiences. You never have to meet anyone in-person until you’re absolutely ready, but it might be a good way to at least start building more romantic connections, if you’re open to that. In the meantime, whatever you decide, I hope you know that you’ll always have friends here <3

    WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY. YOUR LOCAL BOROUGH COUNCIL MAY HAVE ONLINE WELLNESS GROUPS. THEY OFTEN USE ZOOM. YOU MEET ALL SORTS IN E.G. CREATIVE WRITING GROUPS, GARDENING,  ETC. ITS NOT THE SAME AS DATING, BUT IT MAY BE THE FIRST STEP . BE KIND TO YOURSELF.

    Hi @APHRODITESHEART,
    Thank-you so much for these suggestions, I had never even thought about engaging with the council to find groups, but that sounds like a great idea!
