    In the past I didn't like being a loner.

    For some time now I love that I'm a loner. I'm comfortable being a loner. I'm independent and I like my privacy. I'm happy with not having friends. My ideas, opinions, thoughts, values, and beliefs can be different from others because I formulate my own without receiving...

    Loner For Life, Proud And With No Regrets

    Right now I am in the middle of a vacation from my job, 26 straight days off with pay.  What is the best part of this, besides free money of course? The fact that I can spend many days hibernating at home, not having to lay eyes on any human being. Yes, I am a loner, it may...

    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.

    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...

    Honestly, I've never "fit in" anywhere.

    However, I'm no longer apologetic about my lack of a social circle. I'm intelligent, decent, and my family understands me. At this point, that's good enough.

    I am not a people person,

    nor do I like people. I like being around close family in bursts but not others. I prefer to be alone. I love cats, in whom I'm very close to. I can sleep with my cat beside me and feel completely comfortable. For people, I'll respect them and be polite, but I don't want to be...

    I have a sister who is social

    and smart and sporty. Even though I'd never tell her I'm so jealous of her. She has so many friends and I have just a couple. That's never bothered me too much but.. I with I had a big group of friends who just totally understood me, you know?

    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...

    Who Has Seen The Wind?

    Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I. You see now, it's invisible; to the naked eye. Who has seen the wind? It hides but shows it's there. Seek guidance from the sky- and watch the clouds pass by. Take a look up at the tree tops and see the leaves, they flow. Look down...

    And it's ok to be a loner.

    Not everyone is alike and everyone doesn't need special social skills or to fit in. I like being alone. I find the more people im around or whenever I let to many people into my "proverbial" circle...all hell breaks loose. It's good to be alone.

    I'm a loner in the sense

    that I don't have any friends or family. I have 4 kids but I'm estranged from the wider family & my ex husband. I hated my life with them around & people think being a loner is lonely but it isn't. It just means you don't have to deal with conditional love.

    Seriously, I can't wait till the day I'm

    sitting in my own house, living alone with my own car, a little money in my pockets and in the bank. Come and go as I please. Come home to nothing but my pets, my peace, quietness and freedom and then look around and smile and actually say to myself, "I made it."

    I don't know why I prefer to be alone.

    It is comforting. It is not lonely at all. I enjoy the silence. A lot of noise is uncomfortable and I get away from it after some time. I prefer the sounds of waves reaching the shore than the mindless words people often speak. The waves make more sense. Nature wants nothing of...

    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.

    and I am about sick of being alone.

    I drove home slow today. Walking into an empty house yields only the echos of my own footsteps. The cackles of my kids that once filled the room, are but a memory filling the silence of my mind.
