    '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...

    The past four days I've been on vacation from

    work and I have not talked or seen another human being in that time. At least offline anyways. This is the only social website that I'm on and I haven't been on here as much. Thing is I'm fine with this. If I won the lottery I probably wouldn't see another person for weeks.

    It's really by choice.

    I don't like many people, especially not around here. I hate trashy people, and there is an abundance of them here. Eh, most of my friends don't hold my interest for very long either. Life is feeling very unfulfilling at the moment.

    Why I'M Proud Of Being A Loner ...

    We're psychotics, serial killers, child molesters, disturbed neurotics .... at least according to society. People disrespect what they don't understand, and most people don't understand the loner's love for solitude. I'm proud of being a loner because I don't need other people to...

    I seriously have no friends

    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.

    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...

    This time of year is the worst.

    I have not one, but two Thanksgivings to attend (one to cook!), then a month of Christmas-related social obligations, then New Year's. I can't wait for January to come so I can be alone and recharge.

    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...

    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 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...

    Do you ever like to take long walks at night?

    I live in the city so it's fairly hard for me to escape the rest of the world. But there are a few really big parks near to where I live that I like to wonder around from time to time. Just to get a little clarity and escape the rest of the world. Anyone else do this?

    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.
