    I Live Alone

    I have lived alone now for over 5 years & I love it! I can pretty much do what I want & could never imagine sharing my home with anyone again. People always ask me if I get lonely but I never have, maybe I just love my freedom & space way too much!

    The best way to be happy with someone is to learn to be happy alone. That way the company will be a matter of choice.. Not necessity.
