I crave having time alone. I've constantly got people around me.

The only alone time I get is for about 3 hours on a Sunday when I go for my walk. I look forward to it all week.

It's the only time I get where I can clear my thoughts and refresh myself for the week ahead.

If you are happy and comfortable in your own company, then how can that be weird?

I can be a loner at times but at the same time I crave human contact occasionally too. The two aren't necessarily mutually exclusive, and what is most important is to have a balance between the two: to not become too lonely, and to not be too social to the point where you never have any time to yourself. I could go a day, two, or three days even without a lot of people around me or social interaction. Then I get bored and start feeling miserable, and need some social situation. I get a strong sense of regression when I do nothing... but feel overloaded if I do too much.

Balance is key. Balance, balance, balance. It's okay to be a loner sometimes, and it's okay to be social sometimes. But be one of these 24\7 and it might just break you up one way or another.

I spend my weekends studying, reading, and writing. I don't feel bad about it... it's just the way it is. The usual weekend of going out, partying, etc, doesn't seem interesting to me and I don't buy into the worship of that lifestyle.

so it's Saturday night, I feel that I'm strange, regarding not doing what others do on a Saturday night, such as hanging out with friends, or going to the club ( not my scene lol). but instead I choose to be by myself and play videogames. I bask in the thought of being in a comfortable environment, and I rarely get lonely. is this normal? I don't like hanging out in chaotic places that are not structured. does anyone else act in this manner? people think I'm wierd to not want human contact. I've recently discovered that I might have Asperger's syndrome. I'm not saying that I do have it, as I have only read articles on line regarding autism.


It is not weird.
Do what you feel comfortable and happy doing, and they can F off.
Welcome!
