    I love being alone. I seldom even have the tv on either. There is richness in silence. I guess the true reason ,I enjoy being alone is because I love my own company and am content by myself.

    As I've gotten older, I don't like being alone as much as I used to.  Being alone used to be my favorite thing.  Now I like to be surrounded by one or two - but no one demanding anything of me - just companion sharing the same space.

    I cherish times with my family and friends; but I enjoy being alone for the tranquility and peace that being alone brings.

    Well I like being alone but at certain times I like to be with friends or family. Alone I enjoy the silence, the no-ones asking me stuff or disturbing me when I read a book but I don´t feel in anyway sad. Many of my Friends call me the silent type because I am mostly on my own or do things that don´t attract much attention. I think its everyones free choice when and why they like to be alone or not.

    I like my alone time to write and read but I also like to be around people and socialize and get involved.

    This really depends on how I am feeling.  I am more of an introvert, but at the same time I have found I don't like to be alone ALL the time.  I do, however, like to have time alone where I can reflect on the days events or whatever suits my fancy.

    I prefer a mixture of both.  Most of the time I like the company of others.  Other times I like to spend some time alone, reading or doing some hobby.  So, I like both.  It just depends on the timing and circumstances:)

    I like a balance of both. I love having time to myself w/ peace and quiet, but I also trust that my family will be joining me later in the day. Alone time is great when you have a lifeline to a caring friend or family member.

    No one wants to be alone but its better then being with the wrong people.

    i love being alone for at least part of my day. i'm not a really social person but i enjoy having a few friends around some times.

    A person who is introvert would love to  stay out of the crowd. Such persons are not familiar to engage themselves in talkative gossips and rather they love to enjoy being alone. As for me, I am neither introvert nor  extrovert and I manage to adjust myself in any of the situations.

    It is possible to be in a room filled with 100 people and still be alone so I see no point in your question.

    i've been physicaly alone but very much surounded and hassled by the thoughts of others,... like clocking out of work on friday but thinking and talking about work all weeked,... i've been in crowded bars surounded physicaly by a 100 people and still very much alone in the room,... i think alone or loney are a state of mind, not so much a phisical proximity question.......

    sometimes,..... it takes a crowded loud pool hall for me to finaly get all the thoughts and voices from my work week and life out of my head,.... so realy do go to a bar full of 75 rowdy weekend wariors,.... to be alone.
