    So while my roomates are out being little

    social extrovert butterflies ( rolling my eyes ) I have the whole place to myself, and I just cooked me up a fat, awesome Brazilian burger that I'm going to enjoy with a 72 inch flat screen TV all to myself and chop it up with some of you awesome EP people! This is the life...

    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...

    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...

    Just up bored looking at the posts on here.

    I'm usually a loner now and as recently as last year I felt like I'd never find a true friend because there's just not many trustworthy people left in the world and most people are selfish. But I actually found one that's been here for me while it's been hard and I really needed...

    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...

    Today i went walking,

    didn't care where my feet lead me. Was having a bad day. Wind up in some neighborhood with cute little houses. Sat on the sidewalk, and just watched these leaves fall from this tree. It was beautiful, they just kept falling. It's cloudy outside, had my iPod going. I was...

    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?

    My favorite thing to do is think

    and be alone, which is not to say I don't sometimes also enjoy and need companionship with others or that I am not sociable or charming (I am usually).

    No matter how many people I meet,

    I always end up alone. So it may just stay this way, and I guess that's not as bad as it seems.

    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.

    Hi guys! So I am 28 and i've been always a

    loner. At first when I was a teen I would try to make friends and its not that I can make friends but I long for real friendship, the life time kind of friendship, time passed and I still look for it in people but it is very rare to find I wander why. Today I kind of got used to...

    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...

    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."

    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...

    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'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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...
