Loners Unite!

The older I get, the more I enjoy going to social things or away on work trips on my own rather than with a friend or work colleague(s). I don't count Mr H in this because he and I think alike, but with girlfriends I feel trapped. I end up not talking to many other people, and they seem incapable of doing anything on their own and insist I go into the same shops, or to the ladies or to the bar with them, or to talk to people THEY want to talk to.

When I go on my own I talk to more different people, do what I like, eat when I like, drink the amount I like with no pressure, and go home or to bed when I like. Having the company of clingy friends now irritates me enormously, however much I like them.

I think I have joined the Loners. And I like it that way!

  3. So, what? You're saying it's an age deal? Or is it finally arriving to a point where you can simply make the arrangements to do what YOU enjoy....?
    Frankly, I 'do' people every day -- when I'm done with work--I'm done with people.
    And then it's all about MEMEME....LOLOL :-D
