    Yes.  Although I like to socialize, I, at times, enjoy just being by myself.

    Yes, absolutely.
    I live alone, and really enjoy having my own space.
    In fact it has gotten to the point where I wonder how I am ever going to meet someone, since I can't be bothered going out looking Lol:)
    I used to get really lonely, but being on my own has made me stronger.
    At some point I also realised that I may be alone for a while, so I had better make it enjoyable!

    Absolutely yes. Being given a vision of the other side of death by GOD on August 1, 1982 A.D. a Sunday morning is more than enough to keep me satisfy and content in my life. I also have written the greatest article on the earth with the referring sites spreading my article around the world in 8 countries. I also enjoy fulfilling my destiny and purpose in life with my 1 article and answering questions on hubpages and watching my answers getting voting down in the religous questions of which I can safely say that I am the leader in this subject in hubpages among others as well which is just fine with me because I am the AMBASSADOR BUTLER of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. Peace to everyone. I thank all the people who votes down my answers to questions because it will keep you on your toes and make you want to shout vote his answers down now. Just a little sense of humor there. I wish everyone the very best in life. Thank you.

    Yes, I do.  I am a loner and I love being on my own.  I walk a lot and take my camera with me and just have a blast taking pictures of almost everything in sight.  I also love writing so when I am at home, I am mostly in front of my computer tapping away or doing a research.  I watch tv at times and I love reading.. so many things to do by myself. Of course, I do socialize once in a while. lol I'm a loner, not an anti-social.  So yes, I enjoy my own company.  I miss my dog though.. he passed away two years ago.

    This is WAAAYY to personal of a question... but yes, at least once a day.

    I'm totally messing with you!

    I find myself's sense of humor to be obnoxious.

    Absolutely, though it has taken me a while to work out a plan in which I do not just work all the time since I've been working at home. No, it doesn't do a whole lot more for the business, I just really enjoy what I do and forget to work in moderation sometimes. At one time, my own company is all that I had, even after I got married because my husband worked in medicine and often got called in to assist in surgeries at all hours of the night and worked all day. Now I have others' company too -- my husband is now my editor-in-chief and my daughter is our cheerleader...that is, she cheers whenever she manages to charm us into playing with her instead of working, which has resulted in us putting in a full 8-hour day. That is, I work four hours and my husband works the other four. I definitely value my alone time and the time with my family, and really don't need anyone else.

    @ Max_Power -- who says you have to go out and look? You never know who might be lurking online. I decided to take a break from work and kill a little time, and ended up meeting my husband in an online poker game tongue.

    I do.  I am an only child and have always been somewhat of a loner.  I love time alone to think, or sing or write or do whatever without annoying or irritating others.  But I also really love time with my family--husband, grown daughters and grandchildren.

    In his book "The Devil's dictionary", Ambrose Bierce defines alone as being in bad company.  Sometimes I agree with him sometimes I don't.

    Yes, I enjoy it very much but not every time but once in a day. And what about you? and what was running in your mind while asking this question, were you felling alone or talked yourself after the long period of time?

    I like solitude, but I never think of it as "my own company".  I read, I write, I think, I listen to music, I dance alone - it transcends me from my own mind.  It does not feel like - finally the best person of the universe Myself - I can be with you!  I always have my own company when I am alone or with people, but things that I do are different.

    I think everyone is the center of his own or her own universe, the heart - do you enjoy having your own heart?

    More often than not, I am not even aware - I enjoy the outer beauty of the world, I reach out ---

    Having  said that I am quite lonely, well, I am different.  Does it bother me?  It does, yet I accept.  I am who I am and I stand by my choice.

    There is solitude and loneliness, yet both are parts of life.  We all deserve and need love, so better start with loving ourselves.

    All is in all, yes, I enjoy my own company in moderation. LOL  Besides I can make myself laugh (others too), but I don't wait or expect others to make me happy.  I make myself happy.

    Yes, more so as I get older.  I think I am happier in my skin and that has led to a feeling of being happy on my own.  With four children it has been hard to find time to be on my own so now I find myself craving that from time to time.  It is something we have to work on though.  I always try and remember that we came into the world on our own and will leave on our own.

    Yes. Most of the time. I have learned a lot about myself. But there are times I get on my own nerves and need to be around other people!

    I love my own company. It is the best in the world. It always agrees with me. It doesn't ask stupid questions. It won't make me mad because I was looking for my soda. cookie candy etc and found someone had eaten it. It doesn't make me share the remote. it doesn't infringe on my quiet time. it just lets me be me.Of course there are times when you prefer the company of others, but there is nothing like a little alone time.

    I do indeed.  I would have made a good loner.  It is not that I do not enjoy and learn from others, it is simply that I do not require them.

    You might as well enjoy your own company and like "you".  You really are all you have.  And if you don't like you, could you expect for anyone to like or love you?

    Yes, I love being on my own; I'm very happily married with a family (who've flown the nest) and I love their company but I've always liked my own space.  I never get bored, there's so much I love doing.

    Being on my own clears my head, gives me "me time", and lets me be myself, not just a wife and mum/nana.
