Loners can be great friends :]. Probably they are alone is because they are scared of what people think of them. Especially around the "popular kids". I try to talk to them, most of them are very quite :O. So its hard to even talk to them, but I still give them a chance. Slowly but surely they open up :].

You know, I was not a loner in high school. I should have been, though. I would have done better, I think.

some people actually choose to be a loner...like me, because some people in school arent on the same maturity level as me and i find people really annoying. EX- some girls would sit there and talk abt other poeple when they dont even know them, I would never talk to those kinds of people, PLUS i like to have an intelligent conversation, not conversations abt "DID U HEAR? so and so just got dumped by her bf.....and so on"

a lot of people don't believe it, but these so called 'loners' are a lot of the times more intelligent and deeper than others.
i try to make friends with these people. :)
i try to make them more social.

Not everyone is super outgoing, you know? It's just hard for some people. It's not that they expect people to go up and talk to them so much as they just don't know how to go up to other people and talk. Or maybe they just don't want to. Not everyone's a people person.

I knew just about everyone in middle school (8th grade),i was popular enough to get a pretty gf. but thats when i realized that people only dated people based on their social standing, and how much people talked and plotted behind other peoples backs. so when i entered high school i dropped everything,i had maybe 2 people i would actually call my friends. everyone else was just annoying, and i would tell them they were annoying if they tried to talk to me about something that wasnt what we were doing in class.
At lunch you could find me in the deepest parts of the library trying to nap in a lounge chair, or playing a game of chess with the nerdy kids.
And yeah, social standings drop when you start playing chess with the nerdy loner kids, but i didnt mind at least they were inteligent enough to hold a conversation that didnt involve gossip or the latest trends.

I... judge people a lot. I kind of feel bad for loners, but they're not the kind of people that I talk to.

being a loner isnt exactly a bad thing.If they dont feel the need to be in a group and they function best in school alone then i think it's okay..as long as they feel comfortable with it,and they are not socially withdrawn.

having a peer group isnt always a good thing, some may tend to conform to the bad habits of the group coz they are afraid of rejection.


On my part, i choose whom to associate and make friends with, but asap i try to be in good terms with all of my schoolmates. I know when to be alone and when not to.If conformation with people will do me good, then i'll click with them, but if it will just harm me, then i'd rather be alone than be in a no-good group. I will always go with what's productive and what's best for me, and i've psyched myself to be independent always, whether with people or alone

Some loners are alone because they wannabe. They don't wanna talk to popular people because popular people are full of themselves.

Its nice to socialize, but im also content with being by myself here n' there.. making friends, isnt too big of a deal(have a handful of very good friends) but friends are very nice to have for numerous reasons(when they're caring for others though.) I mostly have quick short conversations with random ppl, then sometimes it can get really long and in-depth depending on the topic.

mostly thats is the reason why but it is also because loners don't have enough experience talking with strangers or people because they aren't use to it. Some tend to talk to themselves if it has gone on to long (like me). Best way to make friends with a loner is just walking up to them and talking out to them out of the blue.

You should never tell them they should talk to people more because trust me they heard it a bunch of times

Don't talk to them if they look busy. Like if they are doing their home work or reading. Best time is if they are staring off into space or doodling. It is most likely a loner has found ways to occupy their time.

I'm a loner myself and I cannot make friends that easy because one I don't have confidence with making friends and two I don't trust as easily.
Trust me on this a loner really wants to make friends they are just really shy.



^ Hey... you should talk to more people.. lol i jokes..
and honestly, when im staring off by myself randomly, im in thought about something that i just might not want to be side-tracked from ;D

friends r so overated. who needs them? i sure dont and niether do u or ne one else. They r just trouble. All they do is do drugs, drink, and get pregnant. Not even worth socializing with. they do make good fighting partners though. And a quick one night stand...but thats about it.

That's why we r loners. We have no interest in your drugs, politics, and prostitution. We are alone by choice to distance ourselves from the majority and perfect our fighting skills... LONER POWER! peace over war


well if it means drinking sociallable to help promote mental health, and eventually having kids for my happiness upon the times I will have to fight for my loved ones, the justified way of fighting, well... They're not so over-rated anymore.


Lastly...
It sounds like Both of you are afraid to live, while being more concerned with your own protection(mainly emotionally)... ;P
but thats just my observation


I agree with you. It's great to have friends but there are times when you need your alone time. I think that's important.

I'd say that most are simply shy and lack the self-confidence to socialize well with their peers. Honestly, if you're worried about them, you should just make friends with them. These 'loners' usually gain the ability to socialize with others once given the opportunity to 'open up' to a particular person.

i have friends, but i'm nt popular. that's actually because i dont dare to talk to them. i'm like afraid to offend ppl. so i dont talk much. my friends dont mind jokes, so well, i'm nt a loner. but i aldo know some loners who actually are not nice. i know one, he's extreme proud, and everyone looks down on him because of his looks. but he's proud. thats why most ppl who pity him are still not friends with him even after talking to him. i know of another one, but she's quite nice.
