I dont think anyone WANTS to be lonely, I think that they dont

want to deal with others on a social level, maybe they werent

brought up in a positive home and are worried about what everyone

will think, so its easier to avoid people then deal. ----- I agree,

but it is important to be aware of the difference between wanting

to be alone, and being lonely. Some people are quite happy to be

alone at various times, but most people need friendship and company

some of the time. Those unfortunate in their loneliness may lack

social skills that usually develop in early childhood, and may just

be too shy or introverted to put themselves in a situation where

they may fear rejection.
