I have a fairly close group of friends at uni, and we all get on really well. problem is, im an older student and to be honest im more than happy in my own company at home so I dont really socialise with them outside of university. Dont get me wrong, i really do enjoy spending time with them at uni, but in my own time I prefer to just be by myself.
I aslo have some old "friends" from school who i have known for like 20yrs. I dont talk to them anymore, but they're constantly texting me and sending me messages on fbook about meeting up. we were really close until a few years ago, but people change (including myself) and they kind of annoy me now. again, im happier in my own company. I outright ignore these people when i can now, but they're so persistant.
I dont have any social issues and im confident in myself around people I just prefer my own space. granted i wasn't always like this but surely people would have gotten the point by now and would just stop going on at me to meet up?
Is there anyone else out there like me?

I am the same and only 15. Don't get me wrong I love hanging out with friends but once I kind of only have a certain amount of energy for it , coz socially I find emotionally exhausting and I need me time to recharge myself I just coming home to my house to a place I'm used to and not have to worry about anyone else other than myself, for people who aren't like this like my sister it's hard for them to understand how you can enjoy being alone coz she loves being around someone, I usually just ignore the texts for a long time to not have them constantly asking0

Yes; I used to have a big circle of acquaintances, friends and 2-3 "best" friends at uni. Today 1 best friend, 3-4 close friends, 10-12 acquaintances and I am perfectly happy to see all of them infrequently. I am what the French refer to as "sans souci", a non-needy, self-sufficient person. You'd be surprised how many people (mainly women) think this is somehow wrong (thankfully not my girlfriend who is the same way!)0
