I am introverted, but I don't see myself as a loner. What does one mean by "loner"? If you just mean someone that likes being alone, sure I am. But, I don't find that definition all that satisfactory. I want to add that a loner is one who shuns human interaction, in a manner you have helped point out -- by asking about giving up on people. Nonetheless, it does not seem that a loner need be antisocial, which may be a personality disorder, in which one is a detriment to the social order in some manner.

Just wanted to clarify some things. As I don't see myself being a loner in the manner explained above, don't have much else to say atm.

Hm, interesting thread. You sound like a very interesting person Abel.

Over the years I've come to the conclusion that I hate people. I find most social interaction inconvenient and troublesome. I'm capable of it, and do so when necessary, like professional/academic situations. But the less I deal with people the more comfortable I am. Every now and then I get a social itch and I go to bars and things of that nature, but it typically just reinforces why I've cut myself from everyone in the first place.

I've come to downright loathe and hate the opposite sex. After years of countless lies, betrayal, and rejection I really don't think I want anything to do with them anymore. It's to the point where I can't even really deal with women in a personal manner without getting angry. I mean I can still deal with waitresses and secretaries and that sort of thing, I'm still plenty courteous for casual social interaction. As soon as the relationship goes beyond that of professional or academic nature I just don't care for having much to do with them at all. If they persist, it'll downright piss me off more often than not. It's not a sexist chauvinistic thing, it's more of a personal vendetta thing.

I'm not sure if it was ever conscience decision really, I think it's just how I was wired along with some personal circumstances (home schooled through junior high, constant moving when I was younger, etc) that just amplified it all. Would I do anything different? Honestly, yes. I would have dealt with even less people than I have, I would have cut myself off farther than I already am. There is little I relish more than undisturbed solitude.

I wouldn't say I'm completely alone. I've always had a decent amount of social interaction through either school (study groups, projects, and the like) and jobs, as well as family. I keep in touch with a couple of old air force buddies, but that's really about it.

I'm under no illusion that I'm superior or smarter to anyone because this attitude I have, it's just a personal choice really. I just like being left alone. I remember at one of the high schools I went to I'd see how many school days I could go without having to speak to anyone. I could usually go days before a random teacher called on me. It's probably why I'm so long winded online - I don't think in short soundbytes, so I'm not used to communicating in such a brief manner. And on that note I should just cut off this longwinded emo rambling.

I've kinda been a loner ever since I was little....As I got older, I started to become disgusted with other people and isolate myself, I started to see other people as trash and I hated to do anything that requires social interaction with people I don't know......I have lots of friends, it's just that it's pretty hard to gain my trust.

i'm more of the loner type =/..

i've always been bullied since i was 5 cuz I'm half, europe/asia. i got abused a few years, but it got over since i moved overseas, though i still got bullied there with words instead XD. i've never really trusted people, since everyone's a betrayer. i always thought my family were the only ones i could trust, until they tell me about stuff like divorce, remarridge and stuff that they'd kept quiet for years about.

Well, I moved back to sweden and my so-called friends i have now i practially hate. When I hang out with them, it's not like I'm showing my real feelings, it's more like an act. but if i quit hanging out with them during school they'd start calling me a bitch or slut and start rumours. well, i wouldn't really care, but the teachers would find out and then tell my mom, and she'd go all crazy and force me to say sorry and be friends with them again.

i'd say i've given up on people. About a year ago, I thought I actually found someone, but it's a traitor after all. But, I guess I still want to be saved after all.

I wish I could be a loner. I mean, I am at times, like if I'm sitting at the lunch table by myself. But then I can't help thinking that I being watched. That people are feeling sorry for me. But sometimes I'm like "Why do I have to put up a front? If I'm mad, why should I put a happy look on my face? Why can't I walk down the street looking mad, showing my emotion? I want to be a brick and not show my feelings and shun the world so that I won't get hurt. Yet I want to enjoy the world with people I love. It's hard, and you have to be smart about who you pick as friends. I've been pretty stupid when it comes to that.

I guess I'm a little bit of a loner. I have friends but I'm independent. Whenever I'm with someone i dont know, I am all shy and quiet, but if i'm with a friend, I'm a bit more talkative.
At school, I really hate working with people that I dont know or interact with. It's really uncomfortable. Even though, I try to be social and helpful.

Hm try to avoid (///_-) topic over here...
Cause i dont like posting "problems" to get some sympathy of others...
Anyways...
Im not a loner... At least I dont wanna be one... But 90% of our school-students are just... I dont know; Standard?...
And in my situation i think being a loner would be better than having "friends" i actually hate...
