Default How Many People here live alone?

Hi just curious to know have many people here live alone and how do you cope?Sometimes when i tell people that i live alone i get strange looks(well i think i do)like its so unusual.I suffer from SA and depression,so i guess i live alone because of the SA,though i think there are times when it is just making my depression worse.Mainly after a hard day at work and when you get home there is just no one there to talk to.Though on other days i couldn't even imagine sharing my place with someone else.It's kind of a vicious cycle between SA and depression i guess?Hope all this makes sense i'm really tired

I've lived alone for so many years, I am used to it.
I have only lived with one person once, but it was such a bad experience it has made me very grateful to live alone for the rest of my life.

I live alone, and have done so for about 20 years. I can't imagine living with another person, it makes me feel uncomfortable just thinking about it. I don't mind the way I live. In fact I think it would be good to go even further and live and work by myself.

Life breaks us leaving pieces, cracks and scars. Sometimes those pieces, cracks and scars can be put back together in the most beautiful and unexpected of ways.


In solitude , where we are least alone

I live alone..well with 2 dogs also. I have had houses/apartments with ex gfs and, after those experiences, decided it would be best to live alone until I could find a woman that wasn't too psychotic to marry and have kiddos with. Wish someone would have told me that would have been harder to find than Jesus...

I plan on living alone and getting out of the stupid town I'm living in now in a year. I'm pretty excited to tell you the truth.

I live alone. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I wish for something else.

I live alone

and the woodpecker

and whatever it is that I hear thumping and rustling under the floor

I do as well. I like it a lot and I doubt I could go back to living with another person.

I live alone too, since some years, and that's really the best option for me. I've lived with people before and I never felt like I could recharge from socializing since you're always stuck with people around. When the day is done, I really need to be able to control if I see people or if I don't. But I think it mainly depends at which level you need people - some people likes to be alone as much as possible, and some others need people to talk to, when they come back from work, when they're bored, etc (like it seems to be your case?). I've known people who loves living with roomates because you always have some friends around (if you get along), and I've known people who loves the peace of an empty place.

I've never been considered weird because I live alone, in fact most people I know who are not in couple lives alone or wish they would... I really wonder what kind of people would find that unusual?
