For me the loneliness is a mixed bag, it's not the kind of lonely like "I'm all by myself and sad" but the lonely like "It's so hard to find someone who can keep up with me, even those who understand or at least try to don't fully get it, though I appreciate their attempt." There just aren't enough people in this world I can fully discuss concepts, ideas, as hairbrained as some may be, and plans with. You get it when it comes to that, which I'm glad of. Others try, and I value those who do but, in the end they normally end up going "Huh, what?"
And I know that feeling, I can't tell you how often I go "Fuckit, I'll do it myself, just stay by in case something goes wrong and a call to 911 is needed!" for the most part, that has become the extent of me asking others for help these days. Least the guy didn't get fried and it worked, but obviously the guy lacked a bit of common sense. I have a rule, I explain it twice, maybe three if clarification is needed, if they don't get it by then, they need to get the hell out my way before they cause some kind of accident or get my temper flared.
