If you've never lived alone, you might find it weird to

And, If you’ve been alone for a long time, it’s equally weird to get back with people again.

I heard intelligent people are happiest alone, but i dont know.

Yes, that may be. But there is the danger of getting very pig headed about the give and take of living together. And, eventually, we get old and need the help of others.

Idk, I think it will be nice to live alone. Perhaps a bit weird initially but I hope I’ll get used to it…

Oh, sure. I need to feel able to swing my arms around without feeling I might hit someone.

I lived alone with my grandmother for 2-3 years. I was going to university and taking care of her. I lived there mainly bcz we were 6 in my parents house, I couldn’t focus on studying from noise etc, and also to take care of my grandmother. It wasn’t easy I did her laundry etc and she smoked a lot.

Honestly that kind of pressure probably helped you. I had to help some family members and I felt more focus to go back to school. I didn’t but I did make some progress before slipping back again.

I had never lived alone my entire life when my only child died when I was 51 years of age. I’ve been alone, for the most part anyway, ever since.

I have lived alone for the past 22 years. The ex(maybe not for long, cross your fingers) is moving in. I am not sure about sharing my “space” just yet. There are times that I feel I am being crowded in and want to just run for the hills. Then again, as sappy as it sounds, she is my one and only true love and I’m not going to throw away this chance at happiness the second time around if I can help it.

Ive lived alone for the past 15 years. You do get selfish.
I honestly couldnt live with no-one now. I keep odd hours and the few women thats stayed, has always pissed me off after a while and i want them to go home.

But im a middle-aged old bstard now. Ive had my kids and done the marriage thing, and apart from the odd bout of loneliness im happier on my own.
