Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.
― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper.

    I’m a loner and yes I enjoy solitude but not because people continue to disappoint me. It’s just great to be on your own, in a peaceful moment and enjoy privacy.

    Really? “No matter what they say”? Kind of arrogant to think Jodi Picault knows me better than I do, knows my history, knows my motives, etc. Off the top of my head at the moment I can’t think of anyone who has disappointed me lately. But with whom I choose to spend my time is up to me and not determined by being a victim of past experiences. Don’t presume that what I say doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t agree with what you think.

    Just sayin’ :).

    I disagree with this…..I enjoy being alone….eating alone…and shopping alone…..I spent a life in public….and the solitude is a blessing…..If I feel too much intrusion from outside…I seek

    I’m a loner , and to keep from feeling lonely , I pretend that everything in my day is not real I feel that I am just a spectator and everything that is going on is just a movie and I can be in it or not as I choose . Sounds nuts but it keeps me sane in this not so sane world

    It’s ok to simply enjoy your own company 🙂

    A lot of truth here. I find it difficult to fit in. Some of us are simply of a different mind and can find no point of corresponcence.
