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?
