What's the longest amount of time you've spent truly alone.

I mean no talking to people over the internet or on the phone. Nobody with you (family / friends or significant others) either. Not even talking about being in a coffee shop or any other public setting alone,but just you, yourself and you...

Feel free to leave a comment and let us know what the experience was like, if you'd be willing to do it again and why!

My house still had people in it when I stayed in my room playing games for like 8 hours. Does that not count?

lol.. I guess... As long as you aren't interactingwith them and they aren't providing background noise/socializing...

Heh, unless I'm stuck on island by myself... I doubt I can fit your criteria of being "utterly alone" for more than a few hours.


(If i'm stuck on an island by myself, i'm pretty sure i'll die within a week anyway... I would never be able to catch any animals, no survival skills here...)

I'd be the lamest island man ever. I can't grow a beard so years and years of hard survival wouldn't be apparent at all. I'd just be dirty and bone skinny.

About a week. I was the only one not going on holiday the same week my friends and family did so I didn't have anyone to talk to HAHA
Shops where I live have those self checkouts, so.. yep, one week-ish.

A month in an Iranian city, Tehran. (I don't mean it in a racist way) It was scary, I don't speak Farsi and I didn't know how to get to places. I did however have my small apartment to hide in.

Probably the whole of November I spent in isolation being in hospital after an accident. I was so down with myself that I didn't really talk to anybody. It was a self imposed exile.

considering i live in a house with like 8 people, 3 of which are noisy little kids and i go to a school with even nosier classmates, i'm dying to be left alone. The longest i've stayed alone is the time when my family attended a party and i was sick, but that was with internet, and I'm pretty sure I spent it here in CR. without human contact would probably be that time when i stayed up finishing a drama and everyone slept til 3 in the afternoon, and i didn't go to bed til 4pm

OK, so it all started when I was at a cafe. One of my friends moved to Tehran recently and she had called me while I was at the cafe. We ended up talking about our daily lives and our interests (we hadn't talked for a year since she left) and she had asked if I wanted to come over for the summer. I had never been there so I said yes and I had booked my flights (I'm not gonna get too specific here but I had to take connection flights because there were no direct flights to Iran from the US, diplomatic problems or something idk). When I got there, we met, hugged, and she brought me to her place. TURNS OUT she had other plans, 3 days later I wake up and she tells me she's going to Austria. I was so scared... my departure flight was in 4 weeks... I was really upset at her for ditching me like that, but she had the decency to teach me where to supermarket was and how the money system worked, she also payed the rent for the month. But the only two places I went were that supermarket and her apartment, I didn't know where anything else was and I wasn't gonna risk getting lost. I lived off of bread, cheese, honey, and sour cherry jam. I got through the days reading manga, did you know internet there isn't based on monthly fees, there based on data plans like phones! Atleast the people at the supermarket were nice to me
