Why would a non-loner have to answer to anybody anyway?

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.
Yeah I did. You have a good point. There are different *types* of vulnerability. I hadn't considered that.

My issue of vulnerability is rude or aggressive people. Would being a loner help me avoid having to deal with them?

3. What do you do on a typical day?

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

1. I am a loner but not by choice, but by circumstance.

2. yes it is very obvious when people see me not talking to anyone or wanting to be by myself

3. I spend most of my time alone every day

4. No, being alone makes me psych state worse, but I don't choose to be alone, I just happen to be alone

I feel reasonably confident of being able to deal with someone pointing a gun at my head. Now if it was a knife it would be a different matter

So would you agree that everyone is vulnerable?

I don't think anyone would see me as a hippie, even if I dress like one, because that's from the 60s.

I also have issues dealing with conflict, including family conflict.

So I'm thinking I should just avoid people and be in my own little world with my hippie bf, as loner hippies together.

What do you think?

People are nosy. And even if doesn't concern them they want to know what you have been up to. So anytime you meet anyone, they'll ask "where have you been?", " what are you up to? " and other similar things. And I personally don't like to tell people about the things that I am up to. That's because they will not understand me or they will make fun of me. So in my case being a loner is the best option. I do tell my thoughts but only to the ones who would appreciate and critically analyse them. Well there's only one such person IRL.
So yeah ..... a loner ..... for sure.

I think that being a loner will help you avoid people in general. And that does include rude or aggressive people. Yeah .
