It's lonesome, I know.. Lonesome and a bit scary, but life goes on and there's millions of choices out there to create a family.. Find a good mate and have children, not only will you accomplish your goal but you'll have an already made family with your mate's relatives. So, don't feel as if your alone in the world.. Do something about it.. Create your own family with friends and relatives.

Yep... what AA said and thumbs up btw.  My friends are also my family.  They say you can't pick your family but that is incorrect.  I have some of the best friends in the whole world and I love them, every one.

Best wishes,

One day I said, 'I will go out & look for my enemies' and on that day I found no friends. The next day I said, 'I will go out & look for my friends' & on that day I found no enemies. ~YeddaHeads~

I wish I was as insightful as Chex. Maybe he's got the latest crystal balls on the market. That would explain things.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

Good to see you Chex.

 

Your wisdom should be an inspiration to all Nubs.

I would say "OK, enuf silliness," but I don't think anyone would believe me.

 

If you are a nominal Christian, find a church with a desire to bring people together and minister to them. Look for a wide variety of Sunday School classes and an emphasis on small groups, or the equivalent.

 

If you are an alcoholic/drug addict, consider sobering up with AA. This is family for many.

 

If you have a hobby, look for local groups that do what you do.

 

And now for the silliness, if you are a hobbiless, non-addicted atheist, you will need to strongly consider becoming a Christian or an alcoholic. Some religions will let you do both.

 

The common thread in all the answers is that you become active. You must find people and engage. You will not be successful 100% of the time.  You will be hurt at times. There is no magic formula or secret handshake. But that stuff happens in families.

Hey dear friend , i will try to find some other people who will love me just like a family. But i will miss my family......according to me who gives you love, that is a family 

I don't have any family anymore--they're all dead.  You have to have one thing in your life to keep going, Newbie--love.  If you have someone to love, you can go on through anything and everything.  Find someone if you don't have anyone or enjoy whatever you have no matter what it is.  Best of luck to you.
