Could be that, too. That's one thing I do miss - having a laugh. You can't beat it, although I sometimes make myself laugh when I'm home alone.
I thought that there was something funny about you
anything is possible,that my friends is a mathematical certainty ;-)
Those Mountains that you're carrying, you were only supposed to climb.
Very true, sooty!
I have always been happy with my own company, something to do with growing up as an "only" child, you tend to be self sufficient as a person.
" Does not suffer fools gladly!"
When i am off work I can stay in the house for days and not bother with people, content in my own company i am. I don't mind people in small doses, but being around people constantly I find irritating, I like the peace and quiet. People keep saying that humans are social creatures, I think i disagree, it's an overrated idea. So I might be a bit of a part-time recluse I think.

Form is nothingness and nothingness is form.
so pleased to read this I thought I was the only one lol x
In my previous living situation sometimes the only interaction was with my customers. I started to hate it if no one come I didnt leave the building.
I am quite an introvert at times. I need to be wasted to dance at a party/in a pub. I enjoy time to myself but since moving into my van I have seen so much more of my family. I'm looking forward to weekends away now my finances are settling down.
I wonder if most of us who spend most of our time on our own end up withdrawing still further. In my case it is not so much the interacting with people that I don't like so much, it's the thought of having to do it. Then I think of things I could be doing instead and don't do them either.
Huh, I can't join this club as I went out today to visit Sooty.
Admittedly, I'm back home now, sitting by the fire and smug in that I have completed my social life for another week or so.
If men bore wings and had black feathers, few would be intelligent enough to be crows.
I can relate to so much in this entire thread, it's like I've found my long lost relatives! Quick, lets all run off again and enjoy our own company some more!
This struck a particular chord with me though
I'm glad I read this thread, it's cheered me up no end knowing i'm not alone wanting to be left alone.
It's no use shouting about who's to blame, when all that counts is how to change...
I could happily walk with the dog without anyones company for hours though. Can you be a recluse and still go out so long as you dont see anyone?
Apart from going shopping i dont see anyone at all normally.Once a month i might see friends.Im never ever bored but i get sick of being told i should get out a socialise more ...why?..and do more with my life and get a proper house....no, fuck off I like the way i live thank you....most people are too busy talking about themselves and how fabulous their own life is to even bother asking about my life and what i actually do so being bored to death with their exploits doesnt really fill me with enthusiasm for socialising.I get invited out to friends and they spend the entire evening playing games on their pc ! I dont really have enough hours in the day doing my own things so having to socialise is just a major inconvenience and highly over-rated and often involves spending money on things i dont want -like meals out that i could cook better myself for a tenth the cost.People free zone please.
