    Love being alone.
    Feel like I'm about to have a panic attack around most people, especially children and people I know to be parents.

    I love it. Which is why times like now, where I don't have it at all, are so difficult.

    I'm used to being alone. It's comfortable now.

    I used to try and make friends and do things with people, but I can't be bothered anymore. It was always me making the effort. Well, mostly me. I have 2 friends that will organise things maybe once a month, so I'm not totally alone. I have family I visit once a month as well.

    I love being alone, though I do want to have friends (who I get, and who get me, and with whom I can be myself). But I'd rather not do the (really bloody hard) work to get good and close friends (find, make, develop) because I actually just like it here at home. It's tricky.

    I’m not a fan of complete solitude. I would love to have maybe two or three people around that didn’t make me feel like I have to speak.

    I'm tired of being single, but I don't have a social life. Honestly, how can we do so with the law now? At least we can still talk on Skype, on the phone, and on forums. :p

I was so shaken of covid 19, i wanted to kill myself but she snapped me out of it, she was crying but also chewed me out on steam chat, she was sad mad. I snapped out of it and comforted her she stopped crying and let her know i love here and im not gonna die.

    Sometimes l have a social life. Sometimes l don't. l really never did place that much importance on obtaining a social life. l realize l am quirky and it can be misleading. My looks can also cause me some problems where guys think l am just asking for attention when l am just myself. l am funny with men and woman yet men view it as a come on. So l rejoice in the downtime, to rewind,ruminate how l could have done something better. Aloneness brings peace and pleasure to me.

    Half the guys I meet think I am gay and think I am trying to crack onto them.
    And, you guessed it,
    Half the women I meet think I am trying to crack onto them, also.

    Moral of the story: Don't be aspie friendly to people you just met. :D

    I like to be alone for the most part but I still need other people for things and sometimes I do get lonely.
    I really miss intimacy with someone

    I miss being close, hugging being intimate in person and talking face to face, i dont like being alone long anymore i get separation and abandonment anxiety, i feel sad.Tempted to binge drink and forget everything and black out, feeling unloved, soo sad. I get very sad and depressed feeling unloved, and drink more till i black out and kill the pain in my heart.

    I love being alone, but long spells of solitude build up my energy to the point where I become restless. I expend energy, through social interaction, allowing me to sufficiently exhaust myself, to relax and sleep.

    I am an introvert, and love long, interrupted solitude. It empowers me and lets me reach my best flow states. Nonetheless, I sometimes meet somebody whom I come to love, and want to balance solitude with interacting with them. I wish we still lived in a time where meetups weren't so risky.

    I do hope everyone is doing well, during the pandemic, and finding optimism and hope, wherever we can.

    With love,
    Arielle
