Before moving in with my fiancé, I lived ‘alone’ for 9 months. By alone, I mean I moved to a different city from uni/home and shared a flat with people I did not know. This experience was a lot different than starting at university for me, which something I was very naïve about. Not a lot of people talk about these experiences and how hard it can be. I hope this post helps someone struggling with loneliness to realise that you are not alone.
