Response to Brainstormy (Original post)

Wed Mar 4, 2020, 07:29 PM

21. I am kind of in danger of becoming an recluse myself as I get older.

I do go to work, get together with friends here and there to meet for coffee, dinner or a movie, and walk around the city to do errands, interacting with people I meet, but I really enjoy my time alone in my apartment.

I have the internet, movies, books, music, etc. Keep in touch w/ others via the phone, e-mail and text (which I hate). Chat with neighbors in my building while I am going in and out or taking care of chores inside the building, etc.

I don't feel lonely at all. In fact, after a week at work, I can't wait to be by myself, although I usually manage to get out to meet at least one friend on the weekend for an hour or two, but then I look forward to going back home. I do have a lot of things delivered because I live in a city and it's just so easy to get groceries, online shopping (no car) and take out food delivered. In fact, I quite enjoy myself and I don't think I would want it any other way.

When I was younger, I was out constantly, so I think I got it out of my system. I don't feel like I am missing anything and I have gotten to the point where people just kind of get on my nerves unless they are good friends of mine.
