Being Alone Isn'T LonelyI have this friend that cannot be alone, for any real length of time or he gets extremely depressed and mopes on and on about how lonely he is. I'm talking.. this goes on after 6 hours of not being around someone. I don't understand this and I don't know if most people are like this or not but I LOVE being alone.
I am married, so I am not truly "alone." But what I mean is, by myself for many hours a day. I don't ever get that lonely feeling. I quite enjoy being alone actually and even look forward to it. Growing up, my parents thought I was very strange to stay in my bedroom and read books and write in my diary instead of asking to hang out with friends non stop. Perhaps I am really the weird one but I can't understand this need to be around others all the time.
Are you lonely when you are alone? If you are, can you describe it? I really do want to get it.
