It’s very strange. More and more of my senior single friends are loners. I can call them day or night, and usually find them home. Even when they go out, they don’t mind doing it alone.
What’s even more strange is that I have to call them to check in. They will call me less than half of the time. I often think “what the heck are they doing, all day and night?”
The truth is that my friends really like being alone. Some of them lost their spouses, and some of them were never married. It doesn’t matter. Time alone means time to think, read, write, do hobbies, try new recipes, take care of housekeeping chores and errands. They like going for walks, bike rides, even traveling on their own.
Most of my friends went to great colleges and graduate schools, had very productive careers, are family-oriented and are involved in several charities. They also love to go out and have a good time.
However, if they had their choice, they would prefer to be alone. They simply like themselves. Check them out in the video below. You might be one of them.
