    Conditional Sentence

    I was wondering if this sentence is OK.

    I thought I would be very lonely if I can't see you.

    Actually it's not a good sentence because one doesn't know what the sentence is trying to say. For one thing, is it talking about the past, the present or the future? You have to change it in some way to make the meaning clear.

    Thanks for your replies.

    The sentence describes someone's thoughts in the past about a future possibility.

    Then I would say something like I thought I would be very lonely if I couldn't see you.
