take away the loneliness, but
may give you less time in
which to feel the loneliness.
It cannot answer the need for
intimacy, but it can answer
many other needs which can

Is the solution for someone
who is lonely and single —
whether single because of
never having been married,
or having been divorced or
widowed — to keep busy, to
have at least one very close
friend, and a family to fall
back on?
For most, yes, that is the
way to lead a fulfilling life.
What about others who are so
depressed they cannot move
out of their homes to even go
through the motions of daily
life? Sometimes professional
intervention is required, ac-
cording to Spectre and Gold-
fein. Some people are so

club and I feel a lot better
physically and mentally.
"I don't need to know the
people I see there personally,
but I am no longer afraid to
start up a conversation. If I
want to be quiet there, I can
do that too. I have the choice,
but I don't have to be alone.
There are certain things you
