When your expectation is more than what you get,you tend to feel like you're alone in it,humans can't be pleased,so you can't expect your partner to perfect himself/herself with everything you wish.

This may mean you do not feel like you are getting enough support from your significant other. Try to uncover what things make you lonely and see if there is a way you can feel less alone and more loved.

Because your expectations are not being fulfilled by your partner. It's time to talk clearly with your partner.

You may feel alone in your relationship because you aren't communicating well enough with your partner and need some closure on your current situation

There can be so many reasons to feel alone, and sometimes there may be no reason at all. In a relationship it is extremely important to talk it out with your partner and discuss how you are feeling, at times this can help to alleviate the loneliness, or even reveal what might be causing you to feel so alone.

If you feel alone talk to your partner about it otherwise the problem won't be fixed. You should be able to do that with each other.

Because your partner and you are not connected and taking care of each other. Or your partner is not doing it.

We are all alone in this world. The only moment we are attached to someone is when we are in our mothers womb for 9 months. We're then led into this jungle I call earth. I'm not a psychologist but ask yourself what do you want in the relationship that is missing .You can have weekly discussions to discuss these things with your spouse.

Probably because you don't feel loved offer you don't love him/her anymore. Try finding out. Don't put yourself in anxiety

Your needs - social, emotional, intimacy - may not be met on some level. You may feel that your partner doesn't understand you, or that you don't understand them.

Its a saying.. be with someone who loves you more than you do them..so you'd not feel like you're alone in the relationship.. maybe thats the reason in your case.. if you're happy with him then try to workout things.. talk to him.. clear things.. if you're not happy.. then its better to be alone then in a relation where you're not happy.

Sometimes it can be that there is an absence or lack of communication within the relationship. Try to talk it out with your partner and see if they are feeling the same way.

It might be from lack of communication in the relationship or you dont see each other much. Try talking to them more and telling them abut how you feel

Why does anyone ever feel alone? Probably it's because the relationship you're in is not giving you what you want. In a relationship, you and your significant other shares everything; the same love, anger and sadness. In a relationship, you are one. If you feel alone, then probably that's because you are. The bond is not there.

I have no idea. I would suggest talking to your partner about how you feel the next time that your feeling that way. Feeling alone is not a good feeling to have if you have a partner they should be beside you like a teammate,bringing you up,and you them,so neither of you ever feel alone.

Clearly you don't not feel fulfilled in this relationship, talk to your partner and explain to them your worries You need a relationship that is suited to you, and if you do not feel happy in it, your feelings should be discussed and acknowledged.

Your partner may not be reflecting back the effort you put in, and you might be feeling sort of slighted because of that. Try talking to your significant other about how you feel and what you are expecting out of the relationship, and if he/she does not seem to be able to give you what you feel you want from a relationship, then it is not worth it to you to stay with that person, especially if you feel alone while with them.

Ask yourself if you still love your partner and talk to him about it. Maybe you two need to do some more activitys together.

Sometimes people feel alone in a relationship because they're not physically or mentally getting attention and that causes a lot of problems so the best thing to do is sit down with your significant other and tell them how you feel

Because you guys aren't talking to each other about how your feeling so you feel like you have to put up with your feelings on your own which can make you feel alone.

Maybe this is due to trust issues. If there is a barrier in the relationship you're bound to be lonely. The best thing to do is put everything completely out in the open!

Maybe the other person isn't trying as hard as you, or maybe they dont want to try as hard as you. Maybe you are alone.

If you feel alone you should really talk about that to your partner, try to figure out where the problem is in the relationship and try solving that together.

Sometimes relationships can become very complicated. Especially when you're both busy people, or just have a lot going on in the moment. And that's perfectly normal!

If you are feeling alone, maybe the relationship is unhealthy. Many things are different in many different cases, Perhaps you could talk to your partner and let them know how you feel :) good communication solves most problems in relationships!

Maybe it's because your spouse is with people you don't associate with. Or maybe it's because the topic of conversation is less than desirable.

Are you the only one putting effort into the relationship? Is your partner trying to fix the issue? Are you communicating the issue to them? Ask yourself these questions and figure out what needs done.

It is because you are expecting something which you want. Expectations kills a relationship faster, and when it does, it is not easy to move backwards.

Sometimes one person puts their all into a relationship while the other gives almost nothing. A relationship is a team effort and it can't be done all by yourself. If you think that you're the main contributor to your relationship, it might be time to think about your happiness and whether or not your partner is giving as much energy to you as you are to them.
