Why do some people like to be lonely?
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.
