Is anyone a loner at school, work, or college? I am at my high school. I don't try to be, but I noticed I'm very eccentric which makes my peers uncomfortable. I'd rather not hang out with someone than be an unwanted precense. Actually, being a loner isn't that bad. You don't have any obligations to go to your "group" or one place. Plus, I get to do software coding in the library during lunch or research my passions.

My family blames me for lack of friends even though I know it is from having major differences and not lack of effort. I've tried many things, but nothing seems to work. So, I just decided to wait until I find someone with similar interests.

I don't mind being a loner. I really like it, actually. Sometimes I wonder if I never cared to see people again. Once in a while is alright though.

I'm a loner by choice. I've recently cut myself off from my friends and much of my family because I find them incredibly annoying and draining. xD I don't mind having no-strings discussions with people but to actually commit to their company on a long-term basis by choice? Ew!

I like hanging out with my close friends when they are available. Otherwise, I am a complete loner.

I am a loner, have been most of my life. It is rather strange, too, because I am a woman, and people tell me it's not usual for a woman to be so solitary.

huh? woman's are more likely to be a loner in so many levels (but ofcourse woman have alot of male attention so thats why people probably think that)

ontopic: yes, even though i have no privacy in this house :evil: (well sometimes i have like maybe a few hours) it really makes me mad as hell

I'm a loner who wishes everyday that I could live peacefully in my own little dome.

I'm content with having no friends. I would much rather have online friends to chat with. It is easier for me to maintain a conversation online than it is in person. Especially if they are NTs, I don't really prefer the company of other people. However, I wouldn't mind having the company of an Aspie who has much in common with me.

*sigh* :?

My problem is I don't trust people to be my friend. It's hard for me to tell if they're going to BS me or if they actually will be my friend.

I usually contact people from school or long time friends on facebook or I have online friends that I contact on many other community forums.

Planning dates and doing those things is hard for me. Because I have to get my darn parents envolved and they have to know where are we going to go, what we're going to do and all of that crud. :roll: It would be sooo much easier if I just planned it all on my own and that's that. :?

I've been a loner for a very long time. I used to not care, but once I was ten years old I realized how many people just ignore me. I feel so awkward all the time. I always feel I have to hide who I am because I don't think being myself is going to work with other people. <.<

Yes, and I try to stay away from everyone (including teachers). I don't want peer relationships. The kids at my school are way to spoiled, and their values are incomparable to my own. Plus if you do get friends, all they do is s**t on you (figuratively;they unload their problems on you).

Honestly, I can't give a crap about anyone but myself, at this point, as selfish as that sounds. Got way too much on my plate to have to worry/deal with others.
