Do you think so? The gnawing, burning sensation reaching out to restrain your psyche, sending waves of desperation and almost endless paralysis? If you replied "yes," then you're in the same boat as more than 50% of Americans feeling lonely.

COVID-19 holds others away, leading a lot of people to feel trapped in their own small "at least 6 ft." bubble. The fact is, people were always feeling lonely, growing frequency by generation.

UCLA researched loneliness in 2019 and found Baby Boomers only hanging at the lonely level and Generation X was 4 points loner than their kin. Millennials were slightly lonelier, and Gen Z scored almost 7 points more than their ancestors, becoming the lonest of all generations.

How is someone faced with too much solitude? Remote research was thought to be the cause before Coronavirus. 10 per cent of Americans worked remotely in 2019, most of whom were more likely to report feeling lonely.

Workers joining the workplace were 6% less likely to feel alone, and 17% less likely to lose friendships. Workers in K-12 education are some of the least likely to feel depression but due to the pandemic this could change with school closures.
