    I have a habit of locking the front

    and back door every time i use them so people often get mad at me because i always lock them out. Its like a natural reflex for me to lock it.

    I live in a good area

    but just feel safer when the doors etc are locked. It often doesn't occur to those around me to lock up, even when we're all asleep!

    Better Safe Than Sorry

    I am a reader, and I've read many times in magazines about people not locking their doors, then surprise surprise, there is an intruder in their house. I do not want that to happen to me, so I lock my doors. Call it paranoid, I call it being safe!

    Once I am out, I am positive, fun and everyone loves me. But I am actually an extroverted introvert and I appreciate my time home alone to relax and be with myself.

    I like to be alone at home at times. It gives me time to be myself and relax. I can also enjoy other things by myself.

    I tend to have more fun while alone than going out to a party or such. I have the ability to keep myself amused with my own company. A computer and internet does help though!!!!
