  • No, I have friend, and I love having them!
  • Yes I am, and I can only imagine it has something to do with my paranoid schizophrenia. It makes being anywhere near people very difficult.
  • Yes i am. and i don't have an specific reason i guess I'm just shy.
  • a creep.. a weirdo
  • a creep.. a weirdo
  • Yes, diagnosed anti-social, but don't know why, my parents say I didn't even like them when I was a toddler, I was always happy by myself then when someone picked me up I cried..... who knows, I try to be social though it's tough
  • Yes, hard to say why.
  • I can get antisocial at periods of times. But I can't really explain it either, I think I get anxious. Thank You for your answer.
  • I'm shy, and I have a difficult time with people I don't know....but nobody really believes that because I tend to be the center of attention. A lot of the time I won't go places because I have horrible anxiety attacks when I have to meet new people.
  • I tend to be seen that way. I tend to keep to myself, because I'm okay with that. I don't feel like my day was unfulfilled just cause I didn't chat up anyone while I was out and about. I don't actually dislike being around other people, but it doesn't satisfy an emotional need.
  • I've always been a loner and I lean toward being antisocial. I think this behavior started as a kid, feeling like I didn't fit in. I eventually got used to being alone. As an adult, I find that most people create drama as a form of entertainment. It's like, if people didn't complain about something or someone they'd have nothing to do. Watching TV is less stressful and I can turn it OFF when I feel like it. I also find that the sole purpose of life for most people is "acquiring more". Never satisfied or fulfilled with what they already have or with "what is", these people go about lamenting about how miserable they are. I've spent more than half my life trying to master how NOT to be miserable, so I avoid miserable people. I've stopped depending on things or people outside myself to "make" me happy. I've learned that happiness is a decision so when I find myself feeling "not-happy" I make another choice. There's nothing I really want, no place I really yearn to visit and nothing I really need to do. I just enjoy my own company and do whatever's necessary to avoid the occasional wrath of my wife. Hey, if it works...don't fix it!
  • I'm not really antisocial. I'm just shy.
  • yes i am - i stopped living in a world full of people i couldn't understand.
  • If I knew why, would I be saying 'yes' to this question?
  • Being a loner has nothing to do with antisocial behavior. Most loners are actually just introverts. Perfectly normal. Around 40% of the population are introverts. They just tend to prefer their own company or the company of a few close friends to having a lot of friends or to socializing all the time. Being an introvert is different from being shy. Shy people are afraid of social situations where as introverts actually prefer to be alone. Wikipedia has a good overview of introversion at this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Introvert . Also, you can Google "introvert" and find many more links related to this personality type. :) Art (a very happy introvert:
  • Relationships are stressful and often fake. There are people who find it hard to believe that any two people can trust each other, completely. But that's the way I and my sister are. I mainly stick to myself, though. There are too many rules in socializing. Like, you have to be a certain way, never say certain things. If you're even a bit socially awkward, it will show. I prefer to be myself. Even if that means being alone.
  • yes i am because why have a relationship? waste of time...
  • I don't have a lot of friends or spend much time around a lot of people. I tend to be more of a loner. Not because I am shy, but because I have lots of things I like to work on and do. I feel much better building, fixing, or creating things, than sitting around just chatting with people, which I feel doesn't accomplish much. I think people, in general, spend too much time 'gabbing' and not enough time learning about themselves, the world around them, how things work, creating, building, etc. I greatly prefer 'doing' over 'talking', so therefore a lot of my time is spent on my own doing things like reading, hobbies, projects, etc. Doesn't leave a lot of time for 'socializing', but it makes me feel much happier and like I have actually accomplished something with my time.
  • A loner yes anti social no. I am content in my own company and confident that I can do most things without asking other's for help or wanting approval of my actions from others.So, that makes me a loner. I am not anti social though. In small doses I do like to be in the company of others and more importantly I enjoy those outings.
  • I am a loner with no friends, shy and quiet. I only talk when I "have to" It's not I want to be a loner, but people nowadays are idiots and don't share the same values as me. Also these idiots spread rumours around me, in effect, telling other people "to not be friends with me"...
  • Not antisocial or a loner, just a private person that likes it quiet. I love being with just 1-2 people. And I do prefer being out in the wilds with nature rather than near people.
  • Yes, I am a loner, and I do have friends. I just don't feel the need to contact them every 20 minutes.
  • I've always been pretty much a loner ... even more so now (physical reasons), but I love being with my family and close friends.
  • I am a serious introvert. I also have Aspergers. I get along with people well and enjoy dealing with them at work, but at home I am happy to close my door and lock the world out. I like my own company. I would have made a very good hermit! Some of my friends say that I am a very good hermit now!
  • I am a loner by choice. Don't like being judged or criticized! I keep to myself, calm, peaceful, quiet. No noise, no Drama, no pressure in trying to fit in. Socializing is just too hard!
  • Yes. Cos I hate people.
  • I couldn't tell you what I am exactly. I'm one of those ppl that "has a lot of friends". The quotations mean that that is how it looks from the outside. On the inside I find myself pertty much alone. I only tend to confide in a very small group of trusted friends. But yet some how I ended up the one in my group of friends that everyone comes to in crisis. So I guess I'm a loner surounded by ppl.
  • I am more of a loner than not however I am not antisocial. I am very social... I just like a lot of alone time
  • I'm just a classic introvert. I have VERY high standards for friends, which is why I tend to go solo.
  • I am a loner due to my circumstances growing being a abused child. It also has to with not being able to depend on people, because most times in my experience most are of people are full it. Most people tend to be nice for a selfish motives. it also has something to do with something in common with other people.
  • I do most of my deep thinking, most thoughtful writing, compose my best music, when I am completely alone. I have plenty of friends, I just prefer to be by myself about 60% of the time.
  • No, I am not a loner and I am not antisocial.
  • I was because of all the hate I got from people at school
  • I'm a loner, basically. Most people confuse asocial with antisocial. Antisocial is a desire to harm others or act against society. An asocial person just wants to be left alone, has no harmful intents. My being a loner stems from lack of social skills and a lack of aptitude for learning them. By about age ten, I just got tired of being ridiculed when attempting to socialize and simply gave up trying. I found later, at age 48, that my problem is called Aspergers Sydrome. It doesn't make things any better, but at least I know what it is. +5
  • I am considered a loner i guess. don't have many friends, I don't WANT any friends for some reason and I don't know why, I gave up socializing because people just thought I was weird. It hurt, and I got depressed ever since the day I told my crush I didn't like him, which was the wrong thing to do, cuz he told me he liked me. :(. I lost like, all my friends that day, got pretty depressed, cried every day since, (it was about 2 months ago) and my life is terrible right now. My mom is VERY sick and we don't know whats wrong with her, my brother is sick, my dad is sick, and I DONT WANT 2 B THE SURVIVOR!!! I'd rather die than have them die. :,(.
  • Hi I used to be a lil more than now,till they suggested to start random conversations.I did waiting for the bus,trolley,going to the dmv,etc..,that helped me a lot ,specially picking up girls .I know one can feel with a low self steem and thinking no one likes us ,but its always fun to meet new people and ideas,you will find out a lot of people think the same way we do.
  • I've never been much of a loner, but I can be a bit antisocial at times. I just get frustrated with people and then just run away. +5
  • I am a loner. I am not anti-social but non-social, there is a huge difference. I have never fit in socially, t6he reason was not explained to me until I was over 50 years old. It is called Aspergers Syndrome. Other people can "read" the intentions of others through things like body language and subtle facial expressions. These are a mystery to me; it is like the rest of humanity possesses a kind of magical power that I lack and am unable to learn. As a child I was subjected to ridicule and harassment whenever I tried to fit in socially. I learned, as a survival mechanism, to avoid all social situations. I consider women especially dangerous to me as I fear being accused of sexual harassment. (continued in comment)
  • Yes i am a Loner. i like being by myself because i don't have to entertain friends. also people tend to annoy me so i think it's better if i'm alone. i feel more comfortable around myself than i do anyone else.
  • I am very comfortable in my own skin and can be alone alot of the time without feeling that lonely. On the other hand, I love being with people who share my values and are part of the family of God.
