Socializing is a man's basic method of interaction. It is how civilizations came out to be. If everyone of us would become a hermit and refuse to interact with one another, do you think the human race would survive? Of course not.

No man is an island, remember that.

I used to think of myself as a loner. A selfish notion actually. I haven't realized how many people care for my welfare, how many I haven't talked to but wanted to reach out to me. When I realized that, I was astounded at how foolish I was and decided to come out in the open, bit by bit. It made me better as an individual. Thus I can say that being a loner causes so much strain socially and mentally.

"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?"

I'm just a sort of loner and have been mostly on and off. Mostly just my own social problems and the way people treat me because I'm not tall like them, I'm not as skinny as them, my teeth are perfect white and straight, my hair frizzes a lot, a slur my words, I cry too much, my clothes look too cheap, I'm quiet and read, etc.

I had a lot of people who I thought were friends in the past, but each one betrayed me, and ended up saying they just felt 'sorry' for me and the really hated me and thought I was a moron and boring. Some physically harmed me, others did worse: mental and emotional damage that lasts to this day. I still have some people I'm extremely loyal to and that I know I trust at least 80%. Only a very few. But I still can't help but feel a little paranoid that they will leave me too.

What I hate about a lot of people is their judgmental ways. A lot of it coming from the very people I would least expect: fellow church members who said we are all brothers and sisters and the adults seem to think that everyone there were great close friends. I left that church. I thought when I was younger that people would eventually mature and get out of their immature phase, but I was drastically wrong. It gets worse as people get older, and they say much worse things. And being older, capable of doing more damage, especially physically. I was always told by school officials that you need to tell a teacher or principal when being picked on or bullied, but they did nothing. They laughed at me and told me to stop being a tattletale and gave me detention or made me write letters of apology. Even when it was physical damage, like when this girl pushed me off a fence in kindergarten.

I'm mostly alone anyways, especially during the summer since my friends don't call very often and close to never actually want to SEE me. Maybe being alone in my room reading and researching and just thinking is what made it feel like everyone around me is so immature. Not a lot of those people even do things like read or think seriously, they just go out and party and do things they ought to not do. We get a book of about 400 pages and they complain there's no way to read that in the 2-3 months we have.

I actually prefer to be by myself. I really don't trust a lot of people's intentions. I have quite a few deep-seeded social issues that go back to since I was a kid. I've been a loner since elementary school (kindergarten). I would usually to go to the library or a classroom and read a book instead of going out to play.

I'm terrible when it comes to making and keeping up conversations and small talk so I don't know what to do when people try and talk to me. Also, I've always kind of been one of the weird kids so a lot of people didn't want to be around me. It was finally when I went to high school and embraced the fact that I was one of those weird, mostly loner kids. I was finally around people who liked things that I liked and I now I've got some friends.

I still prefer to be by myself for the most part and just read. Being around people, especially people I don't know makes me feel very, very uncomfortable. Just thinking about it makes me nervous. I'm not as uncomfortable around people if we have some similarities. Once I get to really know people I'm much more talkative. Looking back know I wish I had felt the same way I do now about being by myself, but whatever.

The ninja life suites me well!; I like to be alone a lot because I have a very activate imagination and I'm very strong minded; I have a habit of just walking away.
Being a very quite person really works for me because people feel they can trust me, because I'm always being me (I've got no reason to be fake) and I get to notice many things that normal people can't notices/see (e.g. when someone's lying lol).

I have many friends but they all belong to different groups so I get to move around a lot and hangout with different kinds of people. I never feel like I live in a box.
I'm extremely quite because when I was a kid I was very intelligent for my age but couldn't hear or speak... So I develop a love of art, daydreaming and boyish things like video games etc.
Must girls I know don't share these interest, so I find I get along well with boys and very talkative or intellectual people (mostly adults) who make up for my silences. lol


Everybody needs somebody, but isn't knowing "everybody" one body too much?

I haven't given up on people but I've been a loner my entire life. There's nothing wrong with me, but I also just don't like being touched or hugged...yes even by my mum. I love her, don't get me wrong I just don't like being touched.....seriously it freaks me the fuck out! I could babble on all day but the bottom line is DO NOT TOUCH THE HOWARD!!!!(me) I can get along with people but I prefer solitude...alone is good.

8s just great to read all of your posts. I feel relieved that im not alone and there are also loners out there. Yeah! I think that being a loner is just normal.
Posted 7/21/08

I have always enjoyed being alone, I like solitude, to an extent anyway. Despite enjoying my own company I love to be around people and have always had very good friends all the way throughout primary school all the way through to high school. I am very thankful for always having great friends around me and accepting me for who I am. I realise many people are not so lucky. Even though I have good friends I started to feel lonely probably during high school. Im not much of a party person, not a huge drinker etc. Most of my friends with the exception of a few were big drinkers, loved to go out, date random people etc. So because I wasn't really into it I withdrew from social stuff more often and found it more and more difficult to relate to my friends. Probably because communication became more of an issue. Basically I think people do whatever suits them and I cant be bothered with a lot of the mindless problems some of my friends go on about. I think you just grow as a person and you change gradually until you or even the people around you find others to relate to and you eventually grow apart. Im a bit of an odd person I guess, I don't trust people easily ( not sure as to why, maybe some bad experience I can't remember ) it becomes difficult to make new friends especially when you become older. But I hope to find more friends who I can relate to more etc. Until that happens i will enjoy my own company etc.

Im a semi-loner you could say. i have trouble talking to more than one or two people at a time, so i prefer not to hang out with large groups. its kind of sad though, how people distance themselves from either because i'm too weird/boring but it doesn't really matter now because i think i found my good friends that i need. 2 only of course.

How long have you been a loner?
6th-7th grade , because that`s when I realized all my friends were fake .
Did you give up on people?
Yeahh .
if so, why?
Well , after I moved I kept in touch w/ my old friends , but then it`s like I kept trying to keep in touch but they just kept ignoring me . I realized that if they were really my friends they would still want to talk to me , so then i just gave up on them , didn`t want to talk to them . At my new school that I transferred to it was like , "Yes , i can start all over ." And so i lived happily again w/ my new friends , i told them about my sitituation last year , and they were like yeahh , okay , but then i hear them saying stuff like i whine a lot and i`m pathetic because i couldn`t keep my old friends . So i simply just stopped talking to them , and they never once told me that they missed talking to me or that they wanted me with them .
What do you generally dislike about them?
I hated how my old friends didn`t want to talk to me anymore just cause i transferred and how my new friends said they had my back when it was all a lie . I HATED HOW THEY ALL WERE FAKES TT_TT

How well does it suit you?
It suits me fine now , i don`t EVER talk about my problems anymore , now that i`m a loner pretty much everyone is cool with me , i mean we`re not close but you know i don`t cause any drama w/ other people so it`s nice , and i seem to be the only person to look out for myself so i feel that`s the safest way to be . (how my trust issues started)
NOTE : I am not a whiny person , never was never will . I`m not mean either , unless someone attacked me first .

sumtimes.

friends... i never really had a friend ... only 1 best friend in elementary
but in middle school it was really hard for me, but i guess my life
in 6th grade revolved around school basically. i didn't really care about
having friends or whatever.. i mean i had friends but not close, close
friends that i could hang out at school and talk to outside of school. It
was kinda sad... at times... but 7th grade totally changed my life & i
didn't expect someone to ask me if they could hang out with me.. no
one has ever done tht, only i have & i was really happy because
i met some special and she was the first best friend i actually had..
not like elementary bc we didn't go out or anything... so i was thankful
that i met her... nd cherished the memories we spent.. now in high
school i have made a couple of friends but not yet really close to
anyone, only 1 person but i'm looking forward to my next 3 yrs of high school.
