Are you happy alone ?

For some people, including my husband, having to spend a day alone or an evening alone is one of the worst ideas. He hates it! He cannot entertain himself whatsoever, so really struggles. Whereas I absolutely love to be in the house on my own. I can get on with what I need to do or sit and watch all the trash tv I want. How about you? Do you like alone time?

I am happy both ways. However, if I am alone at home, I could entertain myself the way I want without bothering about anything. I love peace and calmness.

When in travel maybe I can but when at home I think this is the hardest thing to do.

I have no problems being alone. But then, we don't live alone in our house. There are two other families with us.

Most people seem to associate being alone with loneliness. I am perfectly happy to be by myself since there is more than enough to keep me engaged ..

In the day I can be in a house alone, but I can not live alone at night. I'm afraid. Mostly my family will not keep me home at night because my younger sister live in my area. My family would advise me to stay with her

I have no choice in the matter. I am not married now and do not have human children. I do have my cat child at home. I can do what I want when I want and can go out if want or not. Can watch what want on TV. Can be the only one at the computer. Can get up and go to bed when I want. I am sure there are times I get a little bored, but, I rather be able to do what I want whenever than have someone tell me what to do and make me feel horrible.
