The theme of loneliness is present in the depiction of Lola's life. She is depressed about her life that has no meaning, but has no interest in exploring why it is this way , or how to change it. Instead, she spends her time as a voyeur in Turk's romance and striking up conversations with total strangers.  She does this to fill her empty life with the events of other people's lives.
