I Am a Loner

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,351 People

    I am by choice. It makes me less vulnerable.

    Yes, it is not ideal. It is sad and often times lonely but it is less complicated. I don't like complications. I hate responsibilities and I hate expectations. If you are with someone, you can't really avoid responsibility, expectations and complications. So I decided to...

    Lone - Not Lonely.

    I can't remember if I posted a story in this group yet but I believe I have. In fact, it may have been one of the first stories I posted on EP after becoming a member and finally beginning to contribute. This morning, I'm surrounded by the beautiful silence that accompanies the...

    Man Of Stone, Walks Alone

    I should really stop doing this, because it doesn't really make me feel any better about anything going on in my life; but at the same time, I find myself addicted. I enjoy viewing people's photos on Facebook, or trolling through Photobucket for public albums. I see all these...

    The first thing you should know about me is

    that I am an outsider. Yes, I have friends. Yes, we hang out. Once a month. That's about it. Those are my friends. That's my social life. It's sad because they're all I have. I have no one to turn to, no one who comes to me for advice. Everyone has someone else already, and they...

    I could have went out tonight

    but instead I decided to stay home and watch movies by myself. I think I'm more of a loner because most kids my age are immature and annoy the **** out of me within ten minutes. Even some of my closest friends get on my nerves sometimes... None of them really understand me :P

    I've never been good at making friends

    and it doesn't help that I don't feel the need to have that many friends. But this is my second year of college and my birthday is in a week. Because of that I am in a sour mood, last year it was not so good. I only had one friend and it was three weeks in the semester so I was...

    Loners,

    Why is it that people who have been rejected, chewed up and spit out, gutted by "friends", "family" and the world make the best and most loyal friends? I had a crappy childhood. Friends, they came and went. I'm an introvert and just could never keep up with social games, the...

    I have friends, but most of the time I just

    like doing everything on my own (or perhaps with my girlfriend). It's quite avoidant-based at times however, leaving me feeling confused about who I really am and what I really want.

    I'm one of the few people

    that enjoy being alone over human company. Sure, I get lonely and want human interaction, but most of the time, I love just curling up to a book and reading the night away.

    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...

    My perfect life would be to live in a log cabin in the woods, on a lake. With a husband or without. IDC. For work, I would do something with telecommunications and just work from home. It would be legal to have my car windows completely blacked out all over so that no one could...

    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...

    Best Vacation

    My favorite vacation is to drive away, find a cheap-but-decent motel with some shopping & restaurants nearby, and enjoy being alone.  Some of my friends can't understand this.  For example, last year I drove upstate to a small town.  I told my friends and co...

    "I hate "fun" people.

    I hate group work, because it makes me feel out of place. I hate break time because it emphasizes how isolated I am from everyone else. And I hate people in cliques because it feels like they're advertently rejecting me."

    I'm a weird kind of loner.

    I've managed to create a persona at school, in which I am a totally indifferent, closed off loner, who speaks only when I know it will be both really funny and ambivalent about my true emotions. So, this has made me a weirdly attractive loner; a kind of strange oddity that...

    and what lil family I do have, we don't socialize with each other. I enjoy being a loner. I can go out and have a whole conversation with a homeless person, a kid or a total stranger and I'm good. I don't need friends.
