Some ppl enjoy being alone.

Good question. I’ve heard that it isn’t good to allow yourself to become dependent on someone else for self esteem. I’ve been pretty lonely before. I’d bet that many of us have. If you live in a city there are probably “emotions anonymous” groups around. It’s a twelve step group that treats things like loneliness and frustration.

Depends what age you are. The younger you are the more you crave company. The older you get, not so much.


I crave some company.
I don’t really do well when I’m all by myself for periods over an hour.

Maybe in the future I’ll get roommates or get into supportive housing where I’ll be living with others.
