if you are feeling this way in a relationship maybe it just is not for you or maybe your partner is not supportive or there for you enough. In a relationship you should be able to trust and communicate with your significant other and have them to turn to in times of need.

Loneliness is the feeling we get in our heart and soul when we want to be connected with someone, and someone is not available to connect with. due to being angry, withdrawn, tired or ill.

Maybe your partner is emotionally unavailable, therefore isnĀ“t giving you the affection and attention that you need.

Perhaps you are missing out on quality time with yourself and have given a lot or most of your emotional energy towards your relationship.

Because relationship is all about sharing, remember the last time you both had a laugh together? Or a candle light dinner? Or late night chats? Learn to bring energy into relationship, find common grounds to talk about, And learn to be more positive :)

You shouldn't feel that way. A relationship consist of two people who are there for each other. Your problems are theirs. You feeling alone could be lack of communication. Always express how you feel.

Because humans basically won't ever feel enough. They always wants more and more. And maybe you gotta talk to your partner then :)

If you are feeling alone, you should talk to your partner. Many people feel alone because they aren't getting the attention they deserve. If this is the case, it may be a sign that the relationship is failing.

If you feel it's a one way street, you need to talk to your partner and explain why you feel the way you feel. If they don't understand at all, maybe you need time and space apart or to rethink the relationship.

Relationships can be lonely. Usually something is bothering you or the other person and this could cause feelings of loneliness.

Talking with your significant other will make you feel ALOT better, and I don't mean how was your day type thing. I mean just sit them down and just lay out the difficult questions

I feel alone because I could have built a wall around me to protect myself. I could be with someone who has done the same.

Because you aren't given the time and importance you deserve.. You don't feel loved or cared for.. You are probably taken for granted..

Communication is a vital part of any relationship and sometimes when there is mis-communication it can lead to feeling alone and being down. Speak to your partner about it, it's always a great place to start.

When in a relation you never could be alone its may be because you are pushing the other person far away due to your insecurities

If you feel that way it's probably because there is a lack of communication or time spent between you and your partner.

You might feel alone in your relationship because your significant other does not satisfy your basic needs. He/she might not show you the love and care you need to feel good in your relationship

Keep in mind that a relationship involves 2, if you feel lonely, maybe the relationship is not working as good as it was before. Think about the relationship overall.

The level of communication that you have with your partner could be very absent. But without further detail, it cannot be said for sure. You have to explore getting more closer to your partner,

Because you are giving more than taking and the other person is not trying hard as you in the realtionship. You might be distant from each other as well and don't know how to communicate like you used to

Maybe you haven't gotten the deserved affection, or maybe you aren't feeling the right things in the relationship. Talk to your partner about it.

Maybe he/she does give enough attention in the relationship, or you see each other not that much....

It is common to feel alone in a relationship when you feel the other person does not understand you fully. Be open about the way you feel and see if this helps form a stronger bond between you.

Maybe, you both don't spend much time together or you're not connected closely. Try to get to know each other more.

This could be due to a lot of reasons. Maybe your partner doesn't really talk to you, maybe the conversations feel empty and thoughtless, maybe it's just in your head. Try thinking if the issue is really there, if you are 100% sure there is an issue, try talking to your partner. I'm sure he/she will understand and be happy to talk about it.
