Our expert says:
let's see. Some people work in a sociable setting - is that impossible where you are or do you just choose not to get friendly with others at the office ? Church and sports / hobbies are usually good places to make friends, as you seem to have found. Yes, charity and similar work can be a good idea - I too am disabled but find this still possible - explore. Similarly, maybe you can make more friends online and communicate with them that way. There are very many lonely people out there, many of them online.
There's no cure for loneliness as such - one either finds ways to make the sort of friends you want, or one reduces one's expectations of friendships, learns to enjoy being on one's own, and maybe develops relationships with a pet.
