    Though out my entire life,

    it was really hard for me to make friends. I just was to shy to make friends with anyone. Except this one girl that I have known since we were 3. She was shy too, so that worked out in some crazy way. But know I have some close friends, which is good. I've just ignored the...

    13 Years Loner

    I been a loner since I was 11 and I am 25 now. I never had a boyfriend and don't have any close friends to hang out with. Throughout the years, I had to learn how to live without friends. I was always bullied and constantly rejected from peers so I decided to entertain myself...

    I've always been a loner.

    I don't know why, just am. I tend to keep to myself, don't open up to anyone. I also think a lot, just by myself.

    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...

    Why I Am a Loner--as Much As I Understand It

    Update, November 1, 2007: While all of what I wrote is true, a few things happened recently that have me rethinking it.  I have good reason to think there is a lot to like in some people, and maybe a little to like in just about everyone.  So I'm giving people another...

    A Female Loner

    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...

    So I'm so not a comedian in class I had no idea

    I told a pretty funny joke. Teacher asked what is alcohol and I answered a bottle of fun. Everyone started laughing and I had no idea why. It took a minute to realize I did something funny.

    Ehhh not really....it's hard to explain.

    I have depression and I sometimes get an overwhelming feeling of being alone. It's very strange and it's horrible. I sometimes think that my (friends) don't actually like me or that I'm not that important to them. The worst feeling is making friends with someone, and then have...

    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

    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...

    Sad to say. Moved up here two years ago

    and keep very much to myself. Not that I wouldn't mind friends. But when you don't do pubs,clubs and that kind of stuff. I guess it's hard to socialise much.

    I'm a loner. Part of it's intentional,

    part of it's not. I like to have my personal space, a very wide space, but I like the sense of comfort of being on the same mental and emotional level as someone else. I like having that sense of belonging. But a lot of the time, I can't bring myself to trust someone with my...

    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...
