  • I don't mind it. For the most part, I am a pretty honest person, and I am nice and respectful to everyone I might. However... since I was a kid, it seems like every time I made a friend, they would end up turning on me at some point. As a result of this, I stopped opening to people.

    I spend a lot of time alone now. I don't really have any friends. The friends I do have now live in other states, due to work, life... etc.

    I go to the gym alone, I go to the movies alone, I go to the mall alone, I eat alone, etc... It doesn't bother me and I prefer it... it's better than being around people who are fake and who secretly hate you.

  • Humans are social animals. Being around other humans is a need. I hate humans. In general. Most humans anyway. And even I need some time around them or I start getting depressed. Though, I still mostly value time spent by myself.

    In prison, the punishment they give people is isolation from other people. They go insane in solitary. In other words, if someone isn't around even criminals, murderers, and rapists, they'll go insane. It's like that movie Cast Away, where Tom Hanks crashes on an island, finds a volleyball, paints a face on it, and starts talking to it like it's a person.

    There was also an ethically questionable study done on Reece monkeys. The monkeys were isolated for varying periods of time. Some of them died. Some of them were so damaged socially that they couldn't return to the group. Some became violent. Some killed their own babies or got in fights with the other monkeys. Some were described as being listless and depressed, further isolating themselves. Humans are also primates, so we share that characteristic. Being around people is a need.

    Human babies will actually die if they're not held or touched. That's how much humans need human contact.

    Though there are different types. The proverbial introvert "recharges" when they're alone. The proverbial extrovert "recharges" when they're around people. Introverts get tired when around a lot of people. Extroverts get tired when they're alone. Introverts still like being around people, however.

  • I don't think anyone likes being alone, but they'd just rather live in the moment and be happy instead of wasting time worrying about something they can't change

  • I'm really introverted so I love my alone time. Not to sound awful, but I prefer spending my weekends doing my own thing than going out with friends.

    That being said, I don't like feeling lonely, obviously... I'd love to be in a relationship and spend my nights cuddling with a special someone.
