When doing what? I wouldn't want to be alone all the time, but when I'm here posting then it wouldn't amke any sense to sit in a group. So what do you mean exactly?

yes, i agree with you. we either want to be alone or in a group depending upon the situation or the condition that we will be going through. if we want to go on self-examination or do some work which needs full concentration, we will have to be alone. when we will be doing something which will require some interaction with people, then surely we will have to be in a group. when i will be mylotting, i do not wish any disturbance coming in. when visitors come in, i have to sign out. i cannot think anyway in terms of the discussion that i want to post a response to.

i prefer to be with a group of people i know and who are close to me. i feel more comfortable this way. i can still feel alone and lonely even if i am in a group of people who are not in good vibes with me. i know that this is the reason why others will say that they feel alone and lonely though they are being engulfed in a group of some people they know enough but, are not comfortable to be around with. it is important that we hang around with persons who are close to us and, we hold them dear and treasure their companionship.

Like the previous poster, I'm what you may aptly call a lone wolf. I like to be by my lonesome most of the time, since I can fully reflect better and I can move more freely when I'm alone. I truly feel that if I'm alone, I can effectively think out of the box and I can really discover more about myself, which, in turn, help me in my overall development as an individual. Nevertheless, if the situation necessitates group dynamics or belonging to a group to accomplish something important that will be collectively beneficial, then I'm willing to participate in such a group for the achievement of such goal. It goes without saying, however, that being or participating in a group does not necessarily entail the sacrifice of one's own thinking mind to the whims or caprices of the collective or the group. It only means that one is willing to cooperate or collaborate with a group of unique individuals with a common goal for the attainment of the same goal. Ultimately, though, whether one prefers to be alone or to be in a group, others should just learn how to respect that individual's preference.

Yes, I prefer to be alone,though that doesn't mean that I don't join group.When ever I am a little upset,or idle I prefer lonliness to analyse myself and see the situation.To be in a group when I am to join people I talk to them as it is required ,I don't prefer frivlous talks.
