Sometimes you are this word

Remove the first letter, does not change the meaning

Remove the first two letters, still feels the same

Remove the first three letters and you find a way

Remove the first four letters and you get a number

The letters rearranged is a surname

What is the word?

    $\begingroup$ My first answer when i saw the title was IDIOT. and given the first line, I felt exactly that $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Jul 24 at 10:09
  • $\begingroup$ I feel that way many times especially after coming up with puzzles like these!! $\endgroup$ – DEEM Jul 24 at 10:11

I think the answer is:

alone

Remove the first letter, does not change the meaning

lone, just alone

Remove the first two letters, still feels the same

one, still be alone

Remove the first three letters and you find a way

NE (northeast - a direction)

Remove the first four letters and you get a number

e(2.718......)

The letters rearranged is a surname

Leona (maybe O'Neal is closer to surname, thanks to Stiv~)

And the answer matches the question title:

the word with 3 vowels(a,e,o)

    $\begingroup$ Nice work - I think the surname you might be missing is rot13(B'ARNY) +1 :) $\endgroup$ – Stiv Jul 24 at 12:09
  • $\begingroup$ Ha, Leona should be closer to given name... nice correction Stiv :P $\endgroup$ – Conifers Jul 24 at 15:22
