People Who Prefer To Be Alone Have These 6 Special Personality Traits

Do you prefer to be alone? Do you find a certain self-fulfillment in spending time with just yourself? I know I sure do. I enjoy my "me time", the alone time I do some of my best soul searching and thinking. I've become more self-aware than I've ever been. I love long drives by myself where I can just reflect on things. People often ask if I have a good music selection. Honestly, I seldom listen to music in the car unless to keep myself awake on a long drive. I enjoy the quiet time to think.

Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy spending time with my friends. In fact, I used to dread being alone. I always wanted to be out doing something, anything, with someone, anyone. But it wasn't until I moved to a new town where I didn't really know anyone that I found myself learning to enjoy my time alone. I came to prefer my alone time.

Often times, people who like to be alone get dubbed "loners". They are perceived by others as lonely, strange, anti-social or depressed. People who prefer to be alone differ than those who are truly lonely. Sure, there are those who are lonely or depressed but there are those of us who just prefer to be alone and are never actually lonely.

Some would say it's tough to become friends with a loner. That's just because we are very picky about who we choose to become friends with. Loners are very loyal however. Once friends, they will be one of the most loyal friends you'll ever have.
