Many Who Complain of Loneliness
Have Only Themselves to Blame
DEAR MISS DIX» Why are
lonely people lonely? If they are
women who are unmarried, they
think they are lonely becaue they
are old maids. If they are mar
ried people, they think it is be
cause their husbands and children
don’t understand them. If they
are poor people, they think it is
because they lack money. If they
are rich, they think they are
lonely because nothing is worth
while. If they could only shuffle
themselves around in each other’s
places, would they be less lonely?
Answer—I think loneliness is a
state of mind and not a condition
of life, and that the lonely would
be lonely under any circum
stances. They are what the
psychologists call “anti-social”
and they lack somehow the ability
to fraternize with their -':llow
creatures. They are not, as the
phrase goes, good mixers, .They
have no approach and C) not
know how to make friends. There
is a certain aloofness about them
that is like a barrier of ice sepa
rating them from their kind.
This trait of character mani
fests itself often very early in life.
You see even small children who
have already developed th lone
wolf trait. They come and go to
school alone. They never have any
intimate chum. They are never
chosen for the school games, while
other children are always the cen
ter of the gang and live in mobs.
Certainly not getting married
does not predestine a woman to
loneliness, and the tears we are
supposed to shed over lonely old
maids are so much wasted brine,
for we all know plenty of old
maids whose lives are so over
crowded with friendships, with in
terests, with work and pleasures
that they consider it a positive
treat to get an hour off in which
to commune with their own souls.
Nor need any married woman
be lonely just because her hus
band doesn’t come up to all of
her romantic dreams, for there
are several millions of other peo
ple among whom she can find
congenial companionship, to say
nothing of her children. Nor is
age or the lack of money a cause
of loneliness. Many of the most
popular people I know are long
past their youth and have little
of this world’s goods, but they are
so human, so kindly, so interested
in every one else’s joys and sor
rows, such little brothers and sis
ters to all the world, as Kipling
says, that the feet of their admir
ers wears a pathway to their
Of course, there are solitary
souls who dwell apart and who
have nothing in common with
their fellow creatures. These have
no desire for companionship and
ask only to be let alone.
The great majority of people
who complain of loneliness have
only themselves to blame, and
their loneliness Is the result ol
selfishness and vanity. There are
those who for some unknown rea
son think themselves so desirable
that every one should run after
them and seek their society. They
never make advances in acquaint
anceship. They don’t meet you
even halfway. They shut them
selves up in their shells and ex
pect you to work patiently and
faithfully until you have pulled
them out of them.
That sort of person is always
lonely because not many of us are
willing to take the trouble to culti
vate such an unpromising pros
Another large class of people,
who.are always wailing and beat
ing on their breasts because they
are lonely, are those who are not
willing to pay the price of society.
It takes time and money and
effort to cultivate friends. To
have people desire your compan
ionship you have to make your
self pleasant and agreeable and
entertaining. You have to sacri
fice a lot of your tastes and opin
ions and soft-pedal a lot of your
theories, and they will not do this.
They go to parties, but give
none. They try to dominate every
gathering they are in. They never
learn to dance or play a good game
of contract. They are eternally
starting arguments on every sub
ject. They talk about themselves
and their affairs endlessly. And
the result is naturally that they
are left alone.
And, finally, people are lonely
because they have no resources
within themselves. They have
never learned how to read or
think. No one who is a good com
panion to himself or herself is
