Men and Loneliness

Men are often lonely and vulnerable, and they suffer in silence. Loneliness in men is best described as a sense of “alienation,” with a person feeling alone even when surrounded by others. Men are subject to feelings of loneliness as they grow older. Loneliness can have a devastating effect on men’s physical and mental health and can influence them to physically harm themselves by committing acts of extreme self-harm, such as suicide.

According to various studies, men are four times more likely than women to commit suicide. Men, as they grow older, are more prone to not being socially connected, unlike women, who are better at cultivating relationships. So, what drives men to get out of touch with reality and become lonely? It’s a relevant topic as it concerns half of humanity.
