I Am a Loner

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,326 People

    I keep to myself. I go to work,

    I go home. The introvert works in too, as I tend to lose energy from being around people, and recharge by being on my own. I look forward to being home, typically playing GTA on ps3. Every now and then I'll get a craving for going to the bar, finding the quiet ones or the loners...

    Period. I really am. Some people may not

    understand, and I guess they mean well with all the advice to go out more - but to me, they are just like birds attempting to advise a fish to leave that cold water and try flying for once. We are simply too different... I've always enjoyed doing things on my own. And I really...

    I don't have friends really.

    .I have a lot of acquaintances. When people say they "struggle to make friends" I'd like to say it was the same for me but truly I've created my friendless zone. Friends hurt you..friends take work and drain you emotionally. I'm not much good at it to be honest. Far better to...

    I love and hate being alone.

    Sometimes it's so peaceful and I wish it could be like this always. But other times when I'm alone no one hears my screams and no one sees me cry. People always ask me why I'm alone and quiet but it's because I chose who I talk to very precisely. If I have narrowed you out of...

    I enjoy sitting in my room

    and writing, reading, or listening to music by myself. My mother constantly worries about me because she thinks I am depressed or I don't love my family, but I really just like to be alone. Plus, I am not good at socializing I freak out when I have to talk to someone new. Even...

    'normal' time ago. But things got messed up, parents didn't care, friends weren't there and i got betrayed several times...It hurted back in the days, till i became what i am today.Today, loneliness is my friend, I feel more relaxed and in peace alone than in a group being...

    I don't go to church,

    or drink, or get high, and I'm not straight edge. Everyone I know is involved in at least one of those. I don't fit in anywhere. Can't I just find people to hang out with that don't feel the need to pray or take mind altering substances or play crappy edge rock?

    i feel like an alien.

    i don't feel like i connect well with others. i don't feel like others connect with me. i don't feel like other people see the world i see. and i'd rather sit alone with my vision, than let it go to join the mass.

    I Enjoy My Time Alone

    I don't feel like I have to be someone else. I don't have to talk. I don't have to pay attention to what someone else is saying. I can wear my pj's all day. I don't have to answer silly questions or laugh at corny jokes. When I am alone I no longer feel lonely. I feel relieved.

    everywhere I go. I'm always that person left out or just there. It's like I don't belong. Today I went to go watch avengers with my friends and it was 5 of us. 2 of my friends sat together, and the other 2 sat together, and me? I was in the middle like alone. Like I enjoyed the...

    Disclaimer: This is all opinion.

    Take it with a grain of salt. _____________________________ I spend lots of time in the forests alone, or just anywhere. I find it hard to change.. I like people, but I'm always alone. It's odd, a choice. I used to think being a loner was cool. But I wasn't one at that time...

    Being Alone In Peace Is Seventh Heaven!

    I have always been a private person, but also a caretaking type and the kind of friend who likes a close relationship and not much of the going-out-in-groups stuff. I know a lot of people but don't think of myself as having a lot of friends because I am not in touch with people...

    I've always been a loner.

    I think that's just the way I am and no amount of trying to be different will ever change the real me. I've tried to be outgoing and socialize but I'm not being true to myself. I have a few friends, I love them and I respect them. They also know that I like my own space and do...

    for 12 years.. And I've been no one.. Just a loner.. Just someone that's broken. Unable to be put back together with glue or tape. I feel useless because no one loves me.. I come home and everyone ignores me and treats me like ****... I've never felt real love.. No ones really...

    It's who I am. No matter how many times I try

    to be outgoing and make a lot of friends. Deep down I enjoy being around very few people if not just myself. I have ALWAYS been a loner and it's helped me be successful in school and be myself. I've never been one to follow a crowd or try and be someone I am not.

    There's Nothing Wrong With Wanting to Be Alone...is There?

    I am a very introverted person and simply don't like to have too much company. Sure there are people I talk to, some of them I consider to be friends, but after all I'm rather alone. I can feel rather drained if too many people are around me. i spend most of my free time to...

    Reason #787 while I'm a loner.

    I'm really tired of having to constantly second guess everyone's true intentions, like damn how hard is it to just keep ish real! Seriously, I'm better off by myself. I don't have the time nor the energy to play around and get exhausted in someone else's world. That mess is...

    I have very little or no friends in real life

    circles. Most are just acquaintances. I am a loner. I Walk alone, eat alone, have fun times alone. And this situation is beyond my control. It has come to be a natural occurrence. I seem to have this invincible wall around me. It seems I built it gradually, brick by brick, over...

    and there is nothing wrong in the fact. Dont we all like our own company at times. It takes strength to be a 'loner' as you have to be happy with yourself in order to do it. The problem can arise when you are a loner for emotional reasons such as being hurt too much by...
