It's easy to feel overwhelmed with the amount of alone time you have after divorce. And as anyone who's ever been through a split can tell you, all too often, that feeling gives way to loneliness.

But are you really lonely or just struggling with being alone? There's a huge difference between the two. Loneliness occurs when you grow tired of yourself and start to anxiously look for someone -- almost anyone -- to help fill the void in your life since you and your spouse split.
