Based on the website, Web of Loneliness, this network is a place for those who feel lonely, isolated, and alone to share with others.
Don't forget to purchase your copy of The Lonely Screams! http://thelonelyscreams.com. The book can help you gain more insights and answers into loneliness and what to do about it.
I've set up a goal of getting 100 unselfies by Friday December 13th. I know we can do it!
We are currently at 14% of goal
If you haven't done one, please send one in. If you have sent one in, thank you, and encourage others on here to send one in as well. Spread the word and get others join in. Here's out webpage on it: http://www.webofloneliness.com/the-wol-unselfie-project.html
Looking forward to your participation!
I am starting this exciting new project called, The WOL Unselfie - The Many Faces of Loneliness.
What is an unselfie you might ask? Everyone knows what a selfie is - it is where you take a picture of yourself with your camera. An unselfie is where you take a picture of yourself, but you cover your face with a paper with a message on it. So essentially it is anonymous.
For WOL Unselfie project, I would like submissions from members of their unselfies. See two examples here: http://bit.ly/18eigNi I'm looking for a lot of submissions from members, I know we can do it! I want to make this project viral, I think it has great potential to raise the issue of loneliness right across the Internet. But we can't get there without your help. On the page, write down what loneliness means to you, your experience with loneliness, or anything else related to loneliness that you would like the world to know. Take your unselfie, email it to me - firstname.lastname@example.org and I will anonymously post pictures on the photobucket album. So visitors won't know it is you. Be as creative as you want to me, I know that there are many, many creative people on here. Get your message out, tell the world about your experiences safely and anonymously. If you speak another language besides English, do your unselfie in both that language and English.
Looking forward to see what you send in. And don't wait, don't put it off till tomorrow. Do it and do it now, cause we need them now! Please, your participation is essential to the success of this project! Let's put loneliness and the WOL on the map!
Thank you everyone.
The corollary question to "Just because i'm a guy doesn't mean i have to..." For me it is a really tough question, because many things attract me to women, but I have yet to find a woman with all of them, because she may not exist, and that is ok…Continue

Terrible mood emotionally today. Just feeling so alone and invisible. The bus driver went past me at the bus stop (but stopped finally several feet down the street so I had to run to not make people wait). He said it was hard to see me in the sun but I was at the bus stop like I am every day. I'm sure it was just an accident but I can't help but to feel like my invisibility has been officially verified.Continue
In my wondering around Buzzfeed, I came across this particular post about raising awareness of victims of sexual assault: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jtes/messages-of-support-for-survivors-of-sexual-assault. The Buzzfeed folks was highlighting the a Facebook page in which folks were sending in pictures to show solidarity to victims of sexual assault.
It is my goal to get the WOL Unselfie project…Continue
I have Asperger's Syndrome,
which among other things, can be a disability in terms of how we communicate and socialise with others.
And this can, and very often does, lead to social isolation and loneliness.
There are good aspects to being an Aspie(people who have Asperger's Syndrome) :-)
And in relation to our relationships with others,
we tend to be honest, very loyal, often funny, caring , giving friends.
I am also a Christian.
I have an unshakeable faith…
Does anyone resonate with this idea?
