One close confidant can cure emotional loneliness.


People generally suffer from two forms of loneliness:

  • Social Loneliness
  • Emotional Loneliness

People who describe social loneliness refer to feelings of boredom, restlessness, and feeling left out. 

Social loneliness stems from an absence of a social network. Cohousing will probably solve socialloneliness for almost everyone.

People who describe emotional loneliness speak of feelings of anxiety and emptiness. 

Even a very socially active person can suffer from this type of loneliness when his/her social network is comprised of superficial acquaintances. Even a marriage which is not embedded in a close relationship is often described as lonely.

One close confidant can cure emotional loneliness for many people. However, that close relationship is much harder to build than a social network.Cohousing gives you an opportunity to make a few really close friends, regardless of your age.
