    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...

    I never like to talk,

    people think I am a freak at first. When I am in Primary and Secondary school I only have one single and only real friend that had been with me since I was Primary One. I dislike talking without reasons as I thought that it was stupid, chatting about useless things and all that...

    I am a Loner much of the time. I have a 3 very good friends that I can call at any time day or night and they would be there for me. However, after saying that I enjoy being alone most of the time. I don't socialize unless I am almost forced to. I find most social gatherings...

    Well this whole app is kind of weird

    but here goes. I feel like a loner for the following reasons. I'm the kind of guy who gets told he never shows Emotion, or never has facial expressions. I've also been told I really calm people down. Basically, people tell me I am a boring person to be around without having to...

    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...

    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.

    ~A Lone Christian Warrior~

    I've always been a loner since I was a little child. I preferred to be by the tree at the Elementary school instead of playing with the kids. In middle school I would be to myself, sitting alone at lunch or hiding in the library. In high school, I find solace in the music blaring...

    I have never been entertained by idle chatter, or fluff. This has left me without many friends, maybe because I have been hurt so badly by other women. The way I think isn't common, I can see through phonyness and fakeness quite clearly; I guess that's why I don't do well in...

    for being a loner: it keeps me sane in chaotic world we live in. Keeping people at a distance not only prevents me from getting hurt badly by their selfish actions, but it also prevents me from blindly following the herd of sheep like most people.
