Most often, I am alone, I do have a lot of things to do everyday, but I am not alone all week long, me and my family usually get together on the weekends. Some people have adjusted and live their lives even they are by themselves. But for good reasons people look for companion still there are those who live within a lifetime on their own. How would you manage things if you are all alone? Would you live a lifetime all by yourself ?

Sadly, I am never alone. I have 4 kids and another on the way, and with only one at school, there is no escape to be alone, except at 1am!!!!! lol. If I were alone, I would still be happy. No one to nag except myself and no one else to be responsible for. Sure, very quiet, but then I could have my music on when I want and not have to put up with someone complaining that they don't like it! I loved living by myself. I got lots of books read, wrote heaps of poetry and cleaned house whenever I felt like, usually at 3am with my radio on. I had pets that I wanted, and didn't have to worry that someone in my home had an allergy. I ate what and when I wanted, and I payed my bills myself, without having to fight over how much everyone owed. Now, I'm still pretty much the boss of the household, but I have to curb my personality and quirks to better suit my family. Sad, but there you go, I love having my family though, and wouldn't give them up for anything.

Thanks. She is a pretty good little girl, though much older now than in the photo. Only thing is, she squeals and throws tantrums a lot now, and has just started grinding her teeth too! Arrrggghhh!

Sigh... I lived alone, away from my family for two years and it made me really lonely. I'm closed to my family, especially my Mama and living away from her really hurts, but I have to do it for myself. I need to get away from the city where I had my most painful, terrifying, degrading and life-wrecking marriage life. I just had to get away or the memories will suffocate me. So I had no choice but leave. I was able to manage of course. People see me as a brave and courageous person. I ventured into a city where I was a stranger and I was able to get through it. Except of course the homesickness, I keep missing my family. Now, I'm still living alone, but I don't intend to waste my lifetime in this solitary situation. I intend to live with someone who loves me. My own child. In the future.

I dont mean to be rude or something, I apologize if I sound one, sorry for that. Its one great place to live and frankly if we could be neighbours or nearby, I would love to stay just where you are and enjoy the peace and beauty of your place.

I think it is important to have some sort of alone time. I have a large family but I love the time I am able to spend alone. I have never had the chance to live completly by myself but i wish i had.

We all need sometime to spend all alone, but not at all times we need to do so... having a large family is a gift from above, you must treasure it ! Thanks for dropingby

I live with my husband and son now our three daughters have grown up and left home - but I really like having quiet time and would be fine living alone as long as I was capable of still taking care of myself. I'm never bored, and love reading and using the computer - so I wouldn't get lonely - but it would be hard if I couldn't get around well, or became too forgetful to be trusted with cooking or turning off electrical appliances. In Australia recently there have been a few cases of elderly people dying and not being discovered for years. It's very sad - so we should all try to have regular contact with others if we (or they) are living alone.

That's really sad, me thinks that there should be an agency of the government or any institution that would look and take care of this matter on the aged people. Afterall, we are heading to that direction.

There are times when I prefer to be alone so that I could concentrate on my job. My job in the office requires me to write a lot of correspondences and I would not want people around me when I'm doing my job, hence I prefer to be alone in my office and prohibits the entrance of any one so I could concentrate. At home, there are few times when I would be alone because my hubby and my son would go out together to play basketball and during my solitude, it is there where I could accomplish many chores at home... why? Well, no disturbance of course. But certainly those are but few moments and I never intended nor imagine myself being all alone all the time. That would be so boring! Of course I need the warmth of my husband's touch and the sweetness of my son's embrace. I also do need the presence of other people in my life. As the saying goes, no man is an island. So we all need each other, people need people.

I lived alone for a few years, and was quite content. My ex always said I would make a good hermit, and other than work and doing a few other things outside the house I spent my free time at home, alone. When I got lonely I would often go to a coffee shop just to be around people Now, I am no longer single and I am happy being with my family, although there are still times I just want to be alone

I love spending time alone. To have peace and quiet and not have to please anybody is fantastic. Eat what you like, entertain yourself how you like. I find myself in a roomful of people feeling very lonely sometimes. You don't "have" to follow the traditional approach to life.

Although, I am not much of a loner type, but I like it when I am being alone for some times, there are even times, when no one seemed to noticed a certain achievement i did, I just gave myself a blowout! Cheers!

No I don't hink I could live all alone. I am married and my husband works nights and one week he works every night but 2 and the following week he is off everyday but 2. The one week where he works all but 2 I miss him soooo much so no I don't think I would do well alone. I mean if I had to then so be it but I wouldn't like it.
