    feel hopeless

    1. He feels hopeless about his future.
    2. He has lost hope for his future.
    3. He feels no hope for his future.

    Are all three sentences good English? Which is the most commonly used?

    Thank you in advance.

    joham.
    "He feels hopeless about his future" sounds the most natural to me.
    "He's lost hope in his future" would be more common than 2 or 3.
