Anybody else in here just not hang out with people (other than family) in real life?

    Like do you dig your own solitude?

    I dont count work-related activities ... I mean going out of your way on your own free time to hang out with other people (not a bf, gf, wife or husband) but choosing not to.... this also doesn't count having no friends because you're a mean selfish prick.

    Just with my girlfriend and the dogs 99% of the time. I'm fine with solitude but don't seek it out.

    Come weekends, I hole up in my house. Zero social activities take place.

    I drive around 300 miles a week, so I am in the car alone about 10.5 hours a week.

    Where I work, I work alone.

    I'm just a loner. I like my solitude.

    I love solitude! Being able to exist, without being subject to the whims of others. Plus, people are so chatty! I wish they'd shut the fuck up, sometimes!!

    there always has to be someone that feels obligated to fill the air with some kind of sound.... they can't stand silence.

    I hate people. I prefer the company of my husband, and thats it. I feel put upon if we have to entertain friends.

    i keep up with a few friends and family but i prefer my own company these days.

    with computers, computer games, the internet, 100s of tv channels, millions of books, and amazon just a click away, there isn't a lot of reason for me to get out and about.
    i was made for this era. or this era was made for me.

    "And so now I'd like to say - people can change anything they want to. And that means everything in the world. People are running about following their little tracks - I am one of them. But we've all got to stop just following our own little mouse trail. People can do anything - this is something that I'm beginning to learn. People are out there doing bad things to each other. That's because they've been dehumanised. It's time to take the humanity back into the center of the ring and follow that for a time. Greed, it ain't going anywhere. They should have that in a big billboard across Times Square. Without people you're nothing. That's my spiel."
