During your free time which do you prefer, be alone or with someone? If I am in that situation, I would choose to be alone. The world is already full of noise and maybe that's the right time for me spend a time for myself but if that other person is the love of my life why not!LOL!! and beside I can tell him when to keep quiet. What do you prefer?

I prefer to be alone. I have three teenage girls and a three year old girl and a five year old boy in my house I really don't get a lot of free time but when I do it is nice to be alone for at least a little while. I often times end up staying up late at night just to get some quiet time.

I prefer to be with someone. I like to be around people, but then there are times when I like my space too.

Hello. Oh yeah, I would tell him/her to keep quiet ! Ha ha ! That is a good idea. Any way, it depends on the time and the situation. If it is in the evening time after leaving the work place, I would prefer to be alone so that I could relax and get rid of the stresses of the day, without any annoyance and disturbance at all. I would just start a music CD and enjoy my favorite music. He/she has to be completely quiet !! LOL !

My job is stressful. And afterwork, I still have kids to contend with. And that's on top of all house chores that needs to get done when I get home. That's why I would always choose to be alone in my free time. Just to recharge my mind, or sometimes be creative. Or even not to think of anything, so as not to be stressed out.

I agree, When we feel really exhausted its good to be alone. I'm not a married woman yet but I know how you feel.

Well that's an interesting question I should say. Well i depends on what i wanna do in the free time. I prefer to be alone if I wanna read a story book or if i need some time for myself. In other cases I would love to hang out with people. I play games with the kids next door, and it makes me feel like I am 13 years old and not 23. I talk with my parents, friends and have a blast. I would say it depends on my mood whether i wanna be alone or wanna be with someone else.

I enjoy being alone. I get lots of work done, without interruption. I love long distance driving on my own - a time to relax, think, plan and sometimes to sing. However, I have been very happily married for almost 50 years, and if my hubby wasn't around, I'd miss him dreadfully and feel very lonely.

It depends on my mood and who that someone is. If it was with a friend and I was in the mood for some company yes, of course I'd rather be with my friend than alone. Sometimes however, it's good to be alone, it gives you time to think and the peace is sometimes welcomed.

It really all depends on what mood I am in. Sometimes, I like being with other people. Other times, I prefer to retire to the privacy of my office and not be interrupted. Here lately, I find myself preferring my office more and more. I deal with people all the time at work, and sometimes I just get tired of looking at other people.

I prefer to be alone as being single without someone to share with or spend most of the times pampering myself either by having a foot spa, and having a new hair relax with massage. It makes me feel nice and look pretty which a good to take the stress out of me. Then, have to watch movies, spent shopping or either just sleep in sweet slumber then after waking up eat a hearty full meals with lots of sweet desserts with my family.

It depends on who that someone is. If that someone was annoying to me then I'd most rather be alone. If that someone happens to be a person that I like, then sure, I wouldn't mind spending time together.

It depends. I lived by myself for a whole year,I did everything only with myself.That's nice,but not so nice. Now I'm living with my sisters.Sometime I'd like to spend time only myself.However most of time it's good to be with them.

I would prefer being alone.When im not free there's a lot of noise everywhere and im the kind of person who prefers peace and quite. But if im excited then i would prefer being with someone so that we could make a lot of noise and storm the whole place down lol

Good question! I am a home body, but I prefer to be with someone (my husband) when I am home. I don't like being home alone at all! I do get a lot of work done when I am alone, but I can do the same if I am with someone as well. I get home before my husband, so I get some alone time and that is plenty for me.

I love people and I do have a man that I spend time with but we do not live together. I work in the public and I have 4 daughters & 2 grandchildren. Trust me, I really do love my alone time. In fact I need it. If I don't get some time to myself then I am not much fun to be around. I have never been one that needs someone around me all the time.
