I do enjoy good company occasionally, however this is a rare find.
I believe that interacting with people simply for the sake of it and to look popular and part of the network can impact on your own well being.
To fit in you often have to compromise our own value system.
I prefer to spend time on my own and in so doing stay true to myself.
Socialising in small doses is a prescription for my sanity.

Yes I love it.

When I had a partner which was for many years, I was petrified of being alone and stayed in an awful relationship because of this fear.

Oddly enough within about 2 weeks on my own, I was very happy without the friction I was used to.

I am still very happy MOST times on my own however some people tell me this is not healthy. I think, if I enjoy it and I am almost a "hermit" which one person once said while I lived in the country, then it is OK for ME.

So the simple answer is yes, while I enjoy being with people, I also love being alone with my dogs.

Although I like good company, I also find spending time alone is very grounding, especially if I'm out in nature. At least once a week I try to go somewhere peaceful and natural (ideally by the river or beach) with a good book and my writing things, and examine my thoughts, feelings, how my life is going....and what things I'd like to work on.
I like a little bit of time alone each day, say 10-20 minutes. That is when I read my latest book.
I would like to be able to, however my mind starts overthinking about every little snippet in my life, so I can't help but keep myself occupied with work/activities all the time!
I much prefer to be alone. I do like company ocassionally, but I spend most of my time by myself, and usually try to avoid being around other people.
I love spending time along. I read, write, do exercise and watch television. Or, when I'm feeling anxious, I clean. It's therapeutic. I'm sick, right?!

Your a clean person....like your twin sister Me :)

Some hours alone in a day is fine for me. But I am a people person, coming from a big and loving family. So too much time alone, I cannot tolerate. I tend to get restless and depressed
I LOVE alone.

Don't get much of a chance, and when I do, I go to Answer Angels,or on the puter.
Love it...love it...love it. :)

I enjoy the company of people; there's always something interesting to talk about or catch up on. That said, I enjoy my own space from time to time too. I will clean up the closet, take 1.5 hours to scrub and pamper my nails, or sit at the balcony and watch the little birds and joggers go by.
Not only do I like it, but I actually require it. I get quite grumpy if I don't get my alone time. I need it to recharge and centre myself. Fortunately I work from home as a freelance photographer so I actually get to spend quite a bit of time in my own company.
I agree. I get really cranky if I have too much company for too long.

Very Rarely unless I reallllly need it.Usually and mostly I like spending time with people.
Not really. I like to have someone around all the time.

i live it..

To be honest I don't really understand people who can't be on their own. I respect them and am more than happy to spend time with them but I am very comfortable with my own company too. I have no issues dining in restaurants alone, I often see movies and attend shows on my own - in fact it's easier to get one seat at a sold out concert than too!
I even travel solo overseas - no arguing over the itinerary.

I agree with you, particularly shopping on my own. I have always enjoyed time on my own, I know me very well and there is never an argument about itinerary, movies, shopping venues, cooking, eating, sleeping(in particular), no problems at all.
Being on my own I can read an entire book in one day. Walk around with depilatory cream all over my legs and moustache, pretend I'm not home if someone rings the doorbell- all manner of things I am not comfortable with if someone is at home.
Being on my own......love, love, love it

Yes. Love it. Can't get enough of it. What do I do? well, usually whatever needs doing, but it also allows me to multitask from a thought perspective - which is not easy for the average man, being more sequentially than parallel focused when it comes to cognitive processing...

I have my son and his girlfriend living with me but am lonely because they don't find the time to talk to me, they're too busy with their own lives. I love close friendships, and have known my friends for many years and enjoy their company.
Yes, I do like spending time with myself most of the time. And rest I would rather talk and socialise with like minded people rather than mingling with people just for the sake of it. Whenever I am not enjoying, people can make it out through my face.
It is bliss and my chance to really think things through and renew the batteries. I know people who dont like their own company and think they would really benefit from some alone time to really balance things out.
Got no choice, these days. But at least it gives me great independence!
