Default Calling All Loners

I have some questions for the loners:

1. Why do you call yourself a loner?

2. Is it obvious to people that you're a loner? Has anyone ever called you one? Has anyone ever told you that you're not?

3. What do you do on a typical day?

4. Does it help you deal with your psychological issues? How or why not?

1. Because I don't socialize
2. Yes it is obvious and yes others call me a loner
3. Sitting at home and think too much and worry too much.
4. Yes it helps, I do not see other people.

1. 'Cause I feel better alone than I feel with anyone else.
2. Yes it is but obvious. People say that I am an extrovert but then they have also said that I am a loner. ( PS people's opinion don't matter to me.)
3. Since I am still a student, these days I try and prepare for my entrance exams, that's almost always a failure since I just can't concentrate. So I just sit around and fantasise about my death.
4. Well it does help me cause then I don't have to pretend to be happy and like the people around me. I can be who I am. The pretending and the forceful smiles just take it out of me.

I thought being a loner would make me less vulnerable, but I'm not so sure:

Say you're a 6'4", 250 pound macho man. You're bench pressing at a gym and grunting. I walk up to you, little me, and point a guy to your head and pull the trigger. Poof, lights out. You're dead. So if you look at it that way, everyone is vulnerable.

What do you think?

I've decided against being a loner, seeing as it's too confining and I'm vulnerable even if I never leave the house. I could have a nuclear bomb dropped on my roof.

Thanks anyway.

For me being vulnerable is knowing people who know things that I don't want them to know. It's like I feel vulnerable when others have info which could harm me. It's the mental thing that I am more worried about. Not the physical thing. I could tell you that the world is ending. And you would die before the sun rose the next morning. But I am sure that no one can hold me at gun point and tell me do something because they know something about me. No one can, in other words, blackmail me. And believe me the mental torture is worse.
What you r referring to is being vulnerable to death. That is something that is inevitable. You cannot escape it. So yeah...... that's that.
Idk if you got my point.

Being a loner sure is confining, in agreement there. But I think it's liberating in its own way. I mean you don't have to answer to anybody. You are not accountable to anybody for whatever you do. And that's I think is the best part about being a loner.
PS being a loner doesn't mean that you don't leave your house or don't take risks. It means doing and taking risks all alone.

1. I don't because I don't like to categorise myself. In reality though it is a good description, as is the Myers Briggs categorisation, INFP.

2. Probably. Most people find me a bit strange because I don't want to spend time with other people unless I have to. I'm comfortable working with people because I have to but my time is sacrosanct and I won't spend my lunchtime or after work with other people because it's my time and I spend it the way I want to spend it - on my own. But conversely within this I must feel some need for companionship - I've had a stupidly large number of sexual partners, but very few relationships.

3. Work. Spend time alone. Spend time with my family. I have no friends - I don't feel the need.

4.I suppose it must do. I soend as much time as I can the way I want which can only be good.

As a 6ft, 225 lb fairly muscular guy who likes bench pressing (former world record holder don't you know) who's spent years doing Krav Maga, MMA, Muay Thai, BJJ I feel quite comfortable with that situation
