A man is not complete until he is married, then he is finished. :o

Fear of being lonely is part of the problem. Do you have lots of friends already or are you fearful of meeting people, going out, etc?

Have friends, lot's of friends. Talk to everyone, not an easy thing to do but can be overcomed. I'll bet half of your friends have the same fear of being lonely too.

This observation is from a person who had the same fear a long time ago, then thrown into a new place with no friends and had to start from scratch.

Enjoy life, experiences everyday and don't look back.

Any type of fear is related to hormone imbalance, and a feeling, of helplessness, it is not easy to overcome unless you have experience and even with knowledge and understanding it ia very difficult, the painting of the scream does give a true likeness of life on the border and beyond.
only for those that expedience it! Only people that have experienced the same feelings can understand a little of why, people that have experinced it may wish to drop me an email!

Create an imaginary friend or even better go the whole hog a join a religion, the opiate of the masses. ( Bill Bailey pointed out that actually Opium is the opiate of the masses :) )
Religion seems to have consoled the vast majority of lost souls
