I'm pretty sure there are many people here with a good amount of friends, and that's cool and all

But I want to learn more about the loners here, and since there are 2 anti gender threads, it only makes sense to have an anti people thread as well.

How long have you been a loner?
Did you give up on people?
if so, why?
What do you generally dislike about them
How well does it suit you?

As a child I had very few friends and the few I had were questionable, I grew up looking white in a black neighborhood in the south, I was quite lonely back then and quite sad and at the time was despeerate for friends, to the point that I'd be overjoyed everytime someone offered to hang out with me, even when they were just using me as something to keep them busy before their real friends arrived and I'd be cast to the side, or lead into a group of kids so they could make fun of me, or worse.....

As I got a little older I became disgusted at what I was, a weak minded sycophant basically, so I quickly realized that people in general were fake and untrustworthy, and that I didn't need or want them hanging around me.

Today, I can say that I have never had a real friend, and that I keep myself guarded and on alert for liars and sluts and potential back stabbers, I trust the intention of a person trying to kill me more then that of a person who walks up to me with a smile on their face, at least then I can counteract those intentions with a proper response easily, as I like to say.......

I believes there are ups and downs to being a loner and to being a friendly person. I'm a little bit of both myself.

Being an only child, I've been constantly by myself my whole entire life. It didn't help I used to be shy. But then, I found friendship and changed. But still, I take pleasure in being alone and distant every once in a while.

Sometimes for months I won't answer phone calls from friends just because I feel at peace with my loneliness. At the same time, I yearn for friendship and closure of my friends. I love my friends dearly, since I never had brothers or sisters, I think of my best friends as my brothers or sisters. They're that important to me. Loneliness is really bittersweet.

Hmm...I wouldn't have consider myself as a loner. But, I was quite lonely. =P

These past few school years, since I went into middle school, we meet new people that we've never seen before, so it's harder to make friends. I was always quiet and shy, afraid to say the wrong thing. I didn't hate anyone, I was just too shy.

If anyone came up to me and talked to me, I'd be pretty quiet, unless it was someone who I shared similar likes and personality with.

It's like I had two totally different personalities. If I was around people I wasn't comfortable with, I'd be totally quiet and reserved. If I knew this person, or she/he was my good friend, I'd be free to express myself, crazy, and random. =]

It just depends on the people I'm interacting with. =]

Well, Im not much of a loner, Growing up as an only child I had alot of friends and played with myself quite a bit. Frequently I would go out but I began to grow tired and I remember it was somewhat fun being alone in the past. Im not much of a loner, I choose to be alone at times. My personality changed and I look like I've gone emo, well, that is what others say, but I like to keep things to myself and be alone alot.

I was quiet as a kid. And I'm quiet now too. I get lonely, but I like being by myself sometimes.

I have two or three really close friends, but other than that I'm a loner. I never really talk much; even when I'm home I usually don't say a word unless someone starts to talk with me first.

i don't believe anyone is truely lonely. if you look around you there are plenty of people who cares. Besides, being lonely is a choice, so that leaves the possible to change. Also, loving "me time" doesn't nessarily mean yours a loner and whatnot.
In life you have 3 chances to change yourself drastically w/o the consequences and ppl going wtf... 1) going into highschool 2) going into college 3) starting your career after graduation

"Some people like to be alone, yet are not loners. Some people are surrounded by people, but are loners."

Sure, there are definitely good and bad friends. Good friends will give you advice, help and support as you go through your life just as your family pushes you to succeed. They would care for you as you should care for them. Even if they run or back stab you, they're still your friends. Unless you really hate their guts. Just like me, I used to have some nice friends who started smoking crack and doing other drugs such as smoking. I don't consider them as real friends since I don't hang out with them. But as just buddies and acquaintances to one another.
No one can be trusted until you trust them. It's hard to trust someone, but as time flows, you get to know your friends better. Everyone laughs at jokes even though they're corny. They envy one another, doing they're best to succeed one another while still cheering on each other in different ways. Having friends is great. They're fun and enjoyable as you make good friends. Don't hang out with those if you feel unwelcome. Just leave and find somebody. It's just like high school, a first impression is always good. Make good choices where you and your friends depend on one another. A group of survivors going against zombies has a better chance of survival than a person soloing zombies..

Well, enough of my senseless rambling. I will leave it to you, the one who should decide to make good choices.

When I think about it, I really see the point in that it's really hard to find people who you can be good friends with. I used to a gajillion of friends back in elementary school (yah, i jus said gajillion) i'd say nearly 1/3 of them have turned into warped personas of who they used to be.

Sycophant: fawning flatterer: somebody who serially or obsequiously flatters a powerful person for personal gain

Wow, somebody made me use a dictionary….. -_-…my pride. : - (

Anyway, looking past my inflated ego, I too am a loner. I think the “I’ve given up on people,” is a mellow dramatic and emo thing to say. Stop trying to make people feel sorry for you martyrs (you know who you are!), it just makes them hate you even more.

Still, social activities are like umbrage for me. I abhor crowds and because of my overly opinionated and outspoken views I have trouble with serious conversations with most people. (Mind you I’m fine if they disagree, but most people aren’t fine if I disagree. Simply put, they start throwing a tantrum.)

This being said there are a few people out there I like. I think most (especially here in America) are dotards, handy-tards, idiots, and bigots. Either ignorant, stupid, or mentally challenged. Which is kind of the same thing as stupid, except with an excuse.

Well, mostly I am a loner because I lack social skills and am thus awkward and out of place amongst groups. I have a lot of trouble talking to one person at a time. I’ve made speeches at my school and this does not bother me. However, this being said, I have a slight phobia for one-on-one conversations with my peers.

This obviously originated for the fact that I myself was once a complete moron. I swear I was mentally retarded. Rather by some medical supper-feat or divine intervention I was miraculously healed, and promptly became an arrogant and pompous jerk. Ah, brutal honesty, like when I call women who abortions murderers! They don’t like that! XD

Basically I have nothing against people as a race, because Human nature is very…vague. In the end generalizations are only good for statistical charts, because individuality beats out stereotypes in nearly all cases. In my opinion.

None the less, I dislike the common person I meat, and have no interest in socializing with many others. Even if I did have an extroversive impulse I would not be able to act on it because I have no friends as a result of my attitude and bla-bla-bla. Which is fine. I’m happy surrounded by knowledge, my God, (I’m religious, and I could care less if you got a problem with it.) anime, and literature. I love the cathartic release of poetry, the creative stimulation of fiction, and the enlightening information of nonfiction.

Basically, my interests are in things that involved one party. I am not bitter with the world, I don’t care that I was an outcast (though I acknowledge this was most likely the heaviest influence on my current introversive personality) I just enjoy being alone. That simple.
