There are also options like Buddhist meditation, study, and practice which can help one dissolve attachment to things desired. Perhaps therapy with an MFT or LCSW psychotherapist would be useful. I remember that, some time after I divorced in the early 80's, I was feeling very lonely. I did a lot of writing and talking with friends. In time I realized that it wasn't others I was lonely for but for my self. Once I began looking to what I wanted--in the deepest, honest way--and began spending time and energy doing them, my loneliness abated. I learned that my aloneness needn't imply or include loneliness.
