    These last few months has made me EXTRA proud

    to be a loner, and the farther I can get away from everyone the better I'll be. I have NEVER in my young life witness so many WEAK PEOPLE! People scared to open their mouths, always wants to be depressed. Rather be a follower than a leader. Don't know how to stand up to...

    i feel like an alien.

    i don't feel like i connect well with others. i don't feel like others connect with me. i don't feel like other people see the world i see. and i'd rather sit alone with my vision, than let it go to join the mass.

    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...

    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.

    I enjoy sitting in my room

    and writing, reading, or listening to music by myself. My mother constantly worries about me because she thinks I am depressed or I don't love my family, but I really just like to be alone. Plus, I am not good at socializing I freak out when I have to talk to someone new. Even...

    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 very little or no friends in real life

    circles. Most are just acquaintances. I am a loner. I Walk alone, eat alone, have fun times alone. And this situation is beyond my control. It has come to be a natural occurrence. I seem to have this invincible wall around me. It seems I built it gradually, brick by brick, over...

    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...

    Last night, I jumped in my car,

    and just drove around. I went to a random apartment complex, and having to drive slow over the little speed bump things, I was able to take a glance inside people's apt windows that they had open. Some people were cooking, some were watching tv, and one lady was mopping the crap...

    I don't go to church,

    or drink, or get high, and I'm not straight edge. Everyone I know is involved in at least one of those. I don't fit in anywhere. Can't I just find people to hang out with that don't feel the need to pray or take mind altering substances or play crappy edge rock?

    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.

    I'm just starting to realize

    that I'm a loner. I want to just pick up and leave, move out and live all alone in a small little apartment with my dog. Of course I want to be married one day, but the chances of finding someone I can actually respect and trust feels rather small. I just want to live in my head...

    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...

    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...

    recently and I'm really having trouble meeting new friends. I've signed up for internations and other such sites and I've been to several events, however I can't seen to force myself to open up to people. It's like I start off good, get a conversation going, but as soon as I...

    I keep to myself. I go to work,

    I go home. The introvert works in too, as I tend to lose energy from being around people, and recharge by being on my own. I look forward to being home, typically playing GTA on ps3. Every now and then I'll get a craving for going to the bar, finding the quiet ones or the loners...

    I love and hate being alone.

    Sometimes it's so peaceful and I wish it could be like this always. But other times when I'm alone no one hears my screams and no one sees me cry. People always ask me why I'm alone and quiet but it's because I chose who I talk to very precisely. If I have narrowed you out of...

    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...

    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...

    Some people just are

    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...

    I never was perfect to live around people,

    I embarrass myself & my friends most of the time, no one can leave me in peace... But not only that, I have a feeling that I'm also becoming dangerous & dark... I need to keep my position from everyone

    Because I don't tolerate bs

    and drama well. I don't party like that, I keep to myself and rather be that way. My boyfriend love it and I just can't help who I am. I'm not a follower I'm my own person and I find other ways to have fun other than drinking and smoking

    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'm really tired of having to constantly second guess everyone's true intentions, like damn how hard is it to just keep ish real! Seriously, I'm better off by myself. I don't have the time nor the energy to play around and get exhausted in someone else's world. That mess is...
