a pill for loneliness?

If there are pharmacological treatments for other social pains like depression and anxiety, why not loneliness?
The loneliness quotient of things like Facebook and other internet snares, has some searching out yet another pill.

The internet, while not officially recognized as an addictive substance, similarly hijacks the brain’s reward system by triggering the release of pleasure-inducing chemicals and is accessible from an early age...



  2. What ever happened to places like Cheers, where everyone knows your name?

    Get dressed and get out of the house.
    And, no, it’s doesnt have to be a bar.
    And, no, you’re not going to like everyone, but you will learn a least a certain amount of tolerance.

    Making your way in the world today
    Takes everything you got
    Taking a break from all your worries
    It sure would help a lot
    Wouldn't you like to get away?
    Sometimes you want to go
    Where everybody knows your name
    And they're always glad you came
    You want to be where you can see
    The troubles are all the same
    You want to be where everybody knows your name
    You want to go where people know
    The people are all the same
    You want to go where everybody knows your name
