Definition

Loneliness is a state of feeling cut off from and longing for others, due to lack of contact (physically, emotionally, etc.) with people (whether acquaintances, friends, or loved ones). Loneliness is not to be confused with solitude (where a person may appreciate the time to think and reflect without distraction.)

Loneliness, perhaps ironically, occurs frequently in heavily-populated cities (such as New York). Loneliness can also occur in marriages, or similar physical-closeness relationships, where there has been anger/resentment or lack of "loving" communication.

Many find some "relief" from loneliness by contacting others via the Internet. However, many argue that online relationships are no substitute for "in-person" relationships, and that a person's true identity cannot be determined on the internet. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loneliness [Mar 2005]
