If you're lonely because You can't trust anyone, do what scares you the most, and let someone in. Make sure they are honest, they're hard to find but they're there. I promise.

Loneliness is a passive state; it is maintained because we passively let it continue and doing nothing to change it. We hope it will go away, eventually, and we do nothing but let it envelop us. Sometimes we let it sink in us and accept it, but that doesn't initiate good outcomes, unfortunately it might lead to depression and it then becomes a real problem. Loneliness occurs to everyone at some point, but the issue is not to seek others company to solve it as you said; even sitting with a crowd doesn't change how you feel, but rather, focusing inward and addressing the negative thoughts that underlie the loneliness in the first place. Express how you feel, let it all out, let all the negativity out. Know that you aren't the only one who feels this way, everyone passes through this stage at a point. Join clubs or pursue a hobby; something you admire, something that lets what you feel out. Do things that make you happy and see where it takes you.

Fight the loneliness honey, don't let it get to you. What I would suggest to you is to put on a pair of headphones or ear buds and let bad-ass, motivating music flow through you. Music can do wonderful things, like give you confidence. Even if it's short-lived, it crushes some of the loneliness. I know it is a lot easier than done; but do your best to break out of your bubble. You may be a bit shy or selectively social, but the more friends you make or people you talk to, the more comfortable you'll feel in a social setting. What I did when I was in a situation similar to yours was to keep a journal/diary. Every day, try to write down your feelings and thoughts. Sometimes, thoughts of isolation, loneliness and the feeling that you're all alone in the world will cover the pages. But there will be days where a friend will reach out a helping hand and pull you out of a dark well you didn't even know you were in. There will be days where the sun shines through thick rain clouds. Then, one day, you'll look back on your book of storms and sunny days and tell yourself "I came a long way". Now change takes time, nothing will happen over-night. And not only time. It also requires you to do your part. Step out of your shell. Say hello or good morning to strangerse you walk past on the street. Give a smile to people at school you don't usually talk to. Remember, life begins at the end of your comfort zone. I wish you all the best in crushing this lonely, gaping feeling in your heart. You're strong and you have gotten this far, I know you can keep going. Take care hun!

Sometimes, everyone feels the way you do. Even I do. The thing is to find some people to hang out with or just do something fun. This will make you forget that feeling of being alone. You distance yourself, even when you're not aware of it, you are, that's why you need to start talking to some people.

When feeling alone, I try to remember happy memories or either create a character whom I can talk to without judgements.
There are many possibilities...Look at this picture; This is boggle the owl, her author runs a comforting tumblr over the internet.
