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.
>>
>>25994468
Same here, I like going out occasionally with my friends but even they are starting to annoy me at this point. Honestly, if I had a sexbot my life would be fucking perfect.
>>
I enjoy being alone because I don't have to make an effort into being funny or social. Being around people is generally too much of an effort.
>>
>>25994336
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.
>>
>>25994549
then you wonder why girls find you boring...
>>
>>25994336
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.
>>
>>25994621
>then you wonder why girls find you boring
Not really. I know girls find me boring since we rarely share interests. Most guys find me boring as well.
>>
>>25994549

This.

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.
>>
>>25994631
a gf is too much work and effort, what we need is a fuck buddy.
>>
>>25994621
Yeah, because girls are so interesting.

Fuck off, we're not your private entertainers, you lazy dimwit cunts.
>>
>>25994336
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.
>>
>>25994730
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"
>>
>>25994776
Explain to me the advantages of having a gf other than sex.

>>25994802
It's like having a talking pet.

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.

I have aspergers so I dont get anything out of social interaction other than feeling exhausted, even get my groceries delivered so I dont have to mix with normies

I'm really lonely but being around people is just too exhausting.

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 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."
>>
>>25995598
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.

I'm kinda the same, I never call or text anyone first.

I used to but it gets worse with every passing year
>>
>>25995898

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
>>
Being alone for me is being with my parents.

Which is incomparable to being actually alone.
>>
Honestly, how hard is it to find a fuckbuddy that you can fuck and cuddle with occasionally? I'm sure there are some girls out there who also prefer to be alone but need sex
>>
>>25996022
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.

>more free time

Time is money my friend. Instead of going to a retarded brunch on Sunday morning, you can actually do something you want.

You welcome the loneliness when you realise having a gf is just you stressing about how happy she is all the time

Do femanons feel the same way? Although I doubt they are ever truly "alone", every girl has some beta orbiter waiting on the other side of the phone
>>
>>25994410
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.

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

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.
>>
>>25994336
Agree, but some days loneliness kinda sucks.
>>
>>25997582
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
>autism clothes
vow of silence
>shut-in
bowl-cut hair
>autism hair
live lives of poverty with church tidings as primary income
>neetbux
outsiders can't enter the abbey

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.
>>
>>26000235
>>26000111

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
>>

> but would revolve

oops but wouldn't revolve

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.

>>25994336
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

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.
