lon·er

[loh-ner] noun

A person who is or prefers to be alone, especially one who avoids the company of others: He was always a loner—no one knew him well.

I’m not sure that I avoid the company of others, but I am comfortable being in my own skin and spending quality time alone. I am an only child and I’m sure that has a lot to do with my attitude, but I also find that by being a loner I avoid other peoples drama and I also avoid getting caught up in gossip.

Yes, I do get lonely, but I work through those feelings or I make plans to spend time with people that I like. Quite frankly, I am used to being alone. I have been single for many many many many (yes that long) years and to be honest being around lots of people gets on my nerves because I like to sit back, chill, and watch rather than be the life of the party.

People are often surprised to see me at events and some people even have the nerve to get upset that I am not at certain events. I simply don’t find it necessary to be everywhere all the time and I actually like being an enigma. After all, if you start seeing me everywhere you might get sick of me, but never fear I plan to make a few more public appearances in 2012.
