On this Friday evening, who else is spending it home alone, if you're willing to admit it like I am.

I'm not alone I have all the people on agnostic.com to accompany me.

Yeah!

@Marcie1974 I even get a warm lap (one computer is an older Mac with a failing battery. It gets pretty hot).

I was never alone, a hubby and three kids and various animals, big house, other people's kids. I used to dream of a day when I could at least go to the loo in peace. Then 31.03.2017 it was all gone. I was alone and homeless. I wish with all my heart I could have it all back.

@MARDUK I work.

@MARDUK, @Moby It absolutely wasn't self imposed

I spend every night alone, Friday is just another day and I'm fine with that. Maybe one day I will meet the right man but I'm not holding my breath. I am usually too tired after work to do anything anyway.

@MARDUK Yes they are! Ain't nobody got time for that! ??

7

Ha! I'll totally admit it! And I'll even take you one further. I actually prefer it that way.

I get to do what I want when I want to. I can take a hike in the woods (did that) and nobody to tell me to come home at a certain time or go to X at a certain time blah blah blah...

If I had my way, I'm not sure I wouldn't just head the hell up to the mountains and stay in them alone except to come out for supplies.

Shit - I'm starting to sound like the uni-bomber... :-0

@MARDUK And freedom of the MIND is in fact the only true FREEDOM!

I took my daughter out for dinner, but then dropped her off at a movie date (no, I wasn't invited), and then came home and washed my car. LOL! Thrilling.

@Moby You go Girl! =]

@Moby I smoked them

@musicman2803 LMAO!

7

Just me and the dogs, which means I'm not alone. 🙂

7

That's my preferred mode. Comfortable at home.

I am. Just happy I can crash and not have to get up early tomorrow.

6

I spend most of my evenings alone, Friday is nothing special. It's just me, some time on the interwebs, some sewing and finally reading myself to sleep. If I'm lucky, Chloe the cat may make an appearance and meow in my direction before the night is over.

6

Yup, alone tonight. Unless I have a lover alone is preferable.

6

Yup, me and my three rescue dogs, all Samoyeds! Looks like our dogs are Friday night companions for a LOT of us! What would we do without our wonderful dogs? They're happy we're here with them, too.

6

Yup, you're not alone.... I was going to watch TV but decided to organize my books instead. Lot of work and too much fun

What would we do without books? I would be lost.

@DevraisA1 funny you said that, we could write a book about it !!!!! .... (I mean to say that I agree 100% with your statement.....I would be lost too)

6

Willing to admit it? Hell, that's how I like it!

6

Me. I have my Kombucha, Bill Maher and Agnostic.com. After a hard day work that's all I can handle.

@Moby It is fermented tea. Great for gut health.

6

Me, that's who! I'm the reigning king of the introverts, and after a busy work week, there's no place I'd rather be than here at home (a/k/a The Fortress of Solitude).

My thoughts are if you are on this page/forum and know yourself a little you are probably aware of being more fond of your own company than tolerating, even suffering, company of others whom you would prefer to be without. Being alone is not the same as being lonely as you are probably aware. There is a saying which sounds kind of cliched that suggests that being alone is not the worst thing; the worst thing is being surrounded by people who make you feel more alone.

On this search for whatever, self discovery?, I had to be told when you are feeling down, speak to someone, face to face, on the phone etc. I had a feeling of 'whinging or complaining' which made me feel guilty, so I avoided it. I realised with assistance, it was a cognitive distortion as a consequence of an anxiety thing that had happened as, what I thought, was my fault, but actually had occured when I was in adolescence, but was not old enough to recognise or deal with. I chastise myself, even now, for taking so long to resolve or come to grips with it. A close friend had asked me why I was so hard on myself, which illuminated a lot more than I was aware of at the time. If you want to be a better person, don't ease up on yourself and aim for mediocre.

Why don't WE always make sure we look after each other and keep us in our hearts? If one of us is alone make sure there is at least someone who cares. You know distance is not as big a thing as time and we are only ever less than 24 hours apart wherever we are? So heads up, shoulders back and smile you have a huge big family! (Oh and best bit..no one will interrupt you on the loo!)

I liked what you said, very nice, and the last part made me laugh.

5

I enjoy being alone. Listen to music, read, talk over the phone with a good friend sometimes and to watch Westworld

5

What's wrong with home alone? I like my company and that of others as well. Without others, there is no special feeling of deficiency on my part. As for theirs not being with me? It would make more sense because I know what they're missing. 🙂

5

Stuck in a hotel in Phoenix. Would be better spent camping.

5

Yup. No regrets!

5

Yes, I’m at home alone with my dog on Friday night.

5

Yes I'm home alone. I thought about going out somewhere, but anywhere is a long drive so I think I'll wait until tomorrow when I don't have to work

5

I am but by my choice. Ended up having to work late. On Friday. When the weather is finally nice in Minnesota.

Thankfully I’m not completely alone.

@Moby dogs are the absolute best!

But I thought....

@Moby oh no sorry, my comments was for Marcie1974. You have nothing to be sorry about...... I was following two different threads from her and the stories didn't add up, unless I misunderstood something.... Either way, not a big deal. We all are just having fun here... Cheers

5

Same here! I have to be up at 4 am for work tomorrow so going out wasn't really an option.
