Anyone else unironically enjoy being alone?
>get to do whatever you want
>no need to buy useless shit that you don't need
>only need to feed/entertain yourself
>can go wherever you want without saying anything to anyone
>if someone tries to reach you, just simply not answer the phone
>not forced to go to shopping
>only pay for your meals
>can watch whatever film or tv show you please
It's honestly the best fucking thing. Why would I need someone who's constantly nagging and forcing me to do things that I don't wanna do?
If I get horny, I just jerk off or get an escort if I have the cash.
There's literally nothing wrong with being alone.
I actually have quite a few friends but they're more extroverted than I am and they always want to do stuff. I've actually enjoyed becoming a hermit recently. Plus I need to focus on school at the moment as well so there's that.
It's mostly sour grapes, but I agree with you, my kin. What the fuck do we need gfs for other than sex and cuddling? they're absolutely worthless in any other way, and make your life so much more complicated and annoying.
I love being alone, but at the same time, I wish I had a gf I could have sex with.
I don't really have any great need to talk to or be around people though, I just get horny a lot and sometimes want to cuddle.
Being around others is stressful. And I always feel obligated to smile at their dunb jokes/witty comments when I really don't wanna smile.
Being by myself I don't have to do any of that shit.
Watch what you want on TV, listen to the radio station you want, retreat onto the Internet or books if you want without being accused of not spending quality time..
Sorry, I just don't think it's worth it being alone.
girls are not supposed to be interesting, they are supposed to find you interesting. Girls like guys who make them laugh, guys like girls that laugh at their jokes, simple as that.
If a girl shared the same interests as you, you'd probably accuse her of being a poser or a "le gamer gurrrl xD"
I'm mostly on the same page as you. I've dated off and on and had one multi-year LTR and that is great in ways, too, but being alone is also pretty chill if you own it. It's hard for me to imagine wanting to live with an SO again, much less roommates.
When I first graduated college and moved away from all my friends I was terrified of the prospect of going to movies/coffee houses/bars alone
now I think I honestly prefer it. Especially going to movies, I really enjoy going to a matinee alone and I don't care how other people perceive me
I genuinely like to spend most (but not all) of my time alone, even all of my hobbies are solitary
>taking long night walks while listening to sad music and crying
I live in LA and it's perfect for being alone. Everyone ignores each other unless you are a massive chad/stacy.
The best thing is being able to go to a movie theater alone without being stared at. If the movie isn't some typical Hollywood blockbuster, my friends usually hate it and I don't bother telling them anymore. I saw Yojimbo and Sanjuro at the Egyptian Theater the other night and it was great. My friends probably would have fallen asleep because it's black and white or "samurai shit."
I never understood why people needed company to go to the movies. You basically sit in the dark for 2 hours and look at a screen, why would you need a friend for that?
Eating alone outside on the other hand terrifies me, I feel like everyone is staring at me, even at fast food joints
>do foreign internship in Vienna for 4 months
>spend the entire time going to concerts, musea, historical sites etc. alone without having to deal with someone else
>complete personal freedom
I can't wait until I graduate, get a job, move out of my parents' home and be free from other people FOREVER.
I was made to live alone.
I miss sex, but I love living alone
>lived with parents for years
>had a gf once
>all i remember of either is constant bitching, constant drama, constant "why are you mad?" "i'm not mad" "come on, i know you're upset." "i'm not upset. i'm.. i'm.. PERTURBED." "ok, why are you perturbed?" "i'm not perturbed! i'm.. annoyed!" for thousands of hours
I live alone. I jerk off all day and listen to loud music. Sometimes I get up and feel like dancing to the music and saying nigger over and over again and no one can stop me. Burn in hell, mom.
The idea of being with people sounds good in paper but reality is very different. I don't feel a "spark" between me and others and there are many factors at play.
It's not even that I'm socially awkward or inept. I have very high standards for myself and that sometimes translates into being very critical of others as well. I have a hard time "faking it" (smiling, chuckling at people's bad jokes, greeting them and social conventions in general), I might do it at first but as time passed I would feel less and less motivated to keep the facade up. At that point I would start to feel like a burden; a brutally honest, corrosive individual people put up with because he was "cool" a few months/years ago. I don't know whether or not that was how people felt about me, but I would then take a few steps back and leave.
That's how it would play out back when I used to try to be with people. It happened 6 times with 6 different groups of people, ranging from nerdy losers to chads. I think I finally came to terms with my solitary nature.
To be honest it's the only way I could keep my sanity.
I'm not relationship material. The amount of ahem** "compromise" I'd have to deal with in a relationship would make the whole thing not worth it.
Honestly I've seen too much. Too many men brought low by their SO's. I always hear that they're happy, and that what I see isn't what it is all the time. Bullshit. Bull fucking shit.
Being social, or a normie... it's just jumping through hoops. And I don't mean to hur dur fedora and pretend that my own interests or hobbies are somehow better or more enlightened than theirs. But regardless, I just feel empty while trying to fit in. I don't see anything in women that I want. No companionship, and no sex as I don't have a sex drive.
The amount of shit you have to deal with today is just too much.
I can see how it could be kind of intimidating but there are so many people here that eat out alone.
Also, I was taught that looking at people eating is extremely rude. Whether it is or isn't doesn't matter, I've benefited from it.
I'm enjoy being alone, but for the opposite reasons that you do
>don't want to waste people's time forcing them to hangout with me
>don't want to bother them by texting them because they probably don't want to talk to me
>do want to go out with others because I'll probably make them do stuff they don't enjoy or want to do
>probably keep them from doing fun stuff they want to do by being there
>make them change their schedule because I want to hang out
thoughts like these grip/paralyze me whenever I think about contacting anyone, so I prefer to be alone. It's the only time I feel at ease.
Are you me?
Seriously, when people talk to me at work I have to work hard to feign interest in what people are saying about their social lives, I prefer working on my own with the radio on.
Living alone is comfy as fuck. Don't get me wrong, there are times when I feel lonely, but that doesn't last long usually. I think that living with someone would be much more of a burden
I eat by myself all the time.
Some people stare, but it doesn't matter. I've made peace with the loneliness. I enjoy it.
Many other social people I've met are far worse off than I am. They're actually the ones who are lonely. Two have told me as much. They were so normie that all their relationships were superficial. They didn't really know any of their friends, in the end.
Same, except for a little longer. It's almost been a decade since I've been into gaming. Although, I somewhat want to get back into it while I focus on myself. It'd be like a reward after I accomplish something.
Stop that shit. You. Dumb. Bastard.
>tfw pitter patter of rain on the window and you're comfy as fuck with a cup of hot chocolate inside
>tfw blizzard hits your area and you have nowhere to go for the next few days
You are now in your "better off alone" phase
Later on in life you will feel like the comfy feeling starts to appear superficial and that you lack something. We are social creatures, we're not videogame characters. You need human interaction or else you will rot
Except for the crazy monks. They are cool
Thanks to modern amenities I don't have to deal with crushing loneliness. I can just escape into media or drugs
And when we get VR waifus that'll be it. Nobody will ever see me again
This too. If I'm alone I want to be with other people and when I'm around people I want to be alone
Honestly it's not that I enjoy it, it's just that I know it's easier. I don't have the energy to put the effort into interpersonal relationships. I can sit at home and watch movies, listen to music, write etc. all I want because those are things you can enjoy for a while, put down for as long as you want, and then come back to when you're bored. Friendships and relationships don't work the same way.
We are the crazy monks, anon. It's just religion has gone out of style with our demographic (young adult, white, male). Think about monks in the context of when they lived:
ugly brown gowns with rope belts
vow of silence
live lives of poverty with church tidings as primary income
outsiders can't enter the abbey
over 2000 years and nothing has changed
I'm trying to learn to like it again, but after forcing myself to interact with my oneitis to the point of us actually becoming incredibly close its hard to go back to the way things were before.
i find it hard to feel lonely
there are 7 billion of you fucks, how can i feel alone?
hell, being lonely is a goal im trying to achieve
I'm afraid even if were able to get a gf, I wouldn't be able to keep her interested/entertained. I'm a funny guy overall, but boring as fuck in terms of what I do all day. I don't think she'd be too happy with sitting at home with me for the rest of our lives. How do couples live together?
Seriously a day alone with a gf sounds awful to me. Sure, sex, that lasts like at most an hour. Talking? I don't fucking enjoy talking. ALl my interests are very male oriented like music and game design we can't do anything together. Only way I am able to interact with other human beings for any long amount of time is with drug use.
I would probably go insane having, and especially living with a gf. I don't see the point of doing activities together 90% of the time, especially when It's almost certain she is the only one who wants to do these activities (couples retreats, couples dinner, refurbish the kitchen), while you as a man suffer in silence.
I'd really want an independent gf who just wants to sleep together or hang out 3-4 evenings a week. I mean you can do stuff together. Just don't plan your every day together.
I know, all I want is a gf who is basically a female roomate. We would live together, but have our own, separate lives, but only sleep with each other.
We would keep in touch, but would revolve our lives or even our days around each other
I enjoy being alone daily, but I also enjoy social interaction daily.
It's lovely having friends who understand you. A lot of people go to /r9k/, implying a lot of people have similar interests. And even if they don't, having hobbies (... and being at university) can open up some amazing opportunities to make friends you never knew you could have.
that's not a bad idea anon, what drugs do you use for this?
>I mean you can do stuff together. Just don't plan your every day together.
this is wisdom, but maybe this is how relationships actually are
I wouldn't know
I'm a cyborg, have a small group of close friends and don't really talk to anyone else. I hadn't had any meaningful interaction with a woman until this girl randomly starts texting me out of the blue, saying she wants to get to know me.
At first I was overjoyed, I had been feeling >tfw no gf for a while. But, I quickly realized I didn't actually want a gf at all. She wouldn't ever stop fucking trying to talk to me, and she never actually had anything important to say, just constant meaningless small talk. Went on one movie date, then DROPPED her after I found out she was a huge liberal.
Love being alone. I want a family eventually, but for the moment I'm completely fine with being single and hanging out with my bros
Women aren't always the answer, robots
Sure you like being alone the first year. But what about the second year? The third year? The tenth year? The 20th year?
You're going to be posting in those suicide threads with the rest of us pretty soon.
I enjoy being alone but not feeling lonely. I wished I could find someones I can spend time with and not feel like doing so is exhausting and a chore.
>but maybe this is how relationships actually are
Some relationships are. I have friends(REEEEEEEEEEEE) and acquaintances that spend all their days together, and some who do their own things.
If I ever were to have a girlfriend (however unlikely), she'd most likely be the clingy kind though. I don't attract independent people, if I attract anyone that is.
I fucking love being alone. I just left my bf because I prefer to be alone because he wants affection and affection is annoying to me.
