Alone Isn't Bad Or Is It?

I want to be alone, a lot. I live alone, and often I can't wait until I get off work so I can come home and be away from everyone. I don't consider myself anti-social. I just like to get away from people. I think some people would think that this behavior is abnormal. I don't invite people to my house. I would rather watch a football game at home than a crowded bar. Why? I have no idea. I can't imagine what being married would be like. Coming home and having someone there all of the time is something that I don't know if I could do. It's not that I don't like people. I just need time to myself, and sometimes enjoy it much better that way.

Don't get me wrong, I like having a little companionship every now and then. But, a lifelong companionship is something of a different matter.

I understand where you are coming from chd6111. I am around people all day, talking on the phone and taking care of patients...I always have to have a smile on my face. I love my home, it's very cozy and it's where I feel most comfortable. Glad to know that I am not "alone" in these feelings.
