That’s the point; one needs to make the effort to talk to other people – even strangers at the bus stop

Most lonely people will not talk to friends & family.  The social networking site Gransnet surveyed over-50s who described themselves as lonely.  The vast majority of those who had not discussed their loneliness said close friends & family would be surprised or even astonished to hear that they feel this way.

Revealing how loneliness doesn’t only affect those who are alone, 93% of survey respondents admitted it’s possible to feel lonely even when you have a partner or family.  Granset provides an opportunity to discuss anonymously, with 82% of users agreeing that talking about feelings of loneliness is much easier online when they are unidentified.
