    Default Do you have many friends or are you a loner?

    I have like four real friends, but I am really nervous so I've never had them over to my house because I get really nervous and can't talk. I am a loner and prefer Internet > My life becuase I can be who I want. Nobody IRL except my parents/family know I even like Pokemon. So I can really be myself.


    Ho about you?

    Nice topic right there.
    I'm enjoy both honestly. I have a solid number of best IRL buddies throughout my life, but sometimes I prefer doing things by myself. Mainly because I hate dependency.

    I've got lots of friends IRL, but I'm only very close to three or four of them. On the Internet, I do have some friends but not a lot.

    I had a bunch of "friends"up until we finished high school. Then we all kinds drifted apart and went our own ways. I still see a few around town, but I make not effort hang out with anyone atm.

    I don't know, to be honest. I have Asperger's Syndrome (or Autism Spectrum Disorder as it's called nowadays) and I am terrible at judging these sorts of things. There are quite a few people whose company I enjoy and I hope they enjoy mine as well, but I also know that I am terrible at maintaining friendships. However, having many friends is irrelevant, what matters is whether or not one feels lonely. I often say that the best thing about Aperger's is that I just don't have the same need as other people to have social relations and that I am rather happy when I'm by myself. I often use the isolation cell as an example: it's supposed to be torturous because humans are social beings, but to me it sounds like a super neat thing that I'd have absolutely no problem with as long as I'd get to bring some books or a least some paper to write on, lol.

    I have a lot of friends, but I'm honestly not that close to a lot of them. I hang out with them, joke around with them, and we do stuff together, but we don't really rely on each other emotionally. Like, I tend to drift in between groups of friends. I have about two close friends that are relatively constant though.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.

    Eh... I don't mind being alone sometimes, but I like being with a company of a few people when I need to. I don't exactly have close friends, honestly, though I have the one friend whom I try to Skype with once a week. The only friends I really seem to make an effort to keep in touch with are Internet friends.

    I can't be bothered with most people at the moment. Some particular people have been treating me like ****, so I haven't been in the greatest of moods when going out

    I'd say I have a decent amount of friends. I don't hang out with my friends everyday, but it is nice to talk at school and such.

    I have friends, but ever since I graduated Highschool we have all went our separate ways. I still hang out with some of them or talk to them on Facebook from time to time. When I was in school I was hanging out with people almost 24/7. Nowadays, I spend most of my time at home, or at work, or outside playing basketball.

    I had a pretty respectable amount of friends up until about a month ago. Much as what Plus side down side said above, I was pretty loose when it came to friends.

    I have been pretty isolated this past month however and there is a lot **** going on, so I have only been really seeing a handful of people. I am not really sure whether I will still be hanging out with a lot people I was just a month ago in the future.

    I have a lot of friends in real life but at the moment I can't speak with them since I'm busy during the night and I'm tired during the day. Because of that, we have to speak through Aim, MSN, Skype, etc until the end of summer.

    I don't have any friends online. Well, one friend but she's inactive online and my other online friends don't come on anymore. So essentially none.

    Excuse me? I never said I don't have friends and made no attempt to make excuses but merely stated the fact that I am content being by myself which is one of the few upsides of ASD. The downside is having to deal with rude and ignorant people like you.

    That would kind of go against the whole point of being a loner, wouldn't it?

    I'm in an awesome class at uni and we all hang out together. We're not a big group so I'd consider all of them my friends. As for the internet I'm quite easy going. I'm female but spent most of my life growing up in the school playgrounds playing football with the lads and so that's really helped me get along easily with people now. If it's a topic that interests me I'll join in with it and have a laugh.

    Years ago I only had a few close friends and loads of internet friends - now it's the complete other way round. I have friends for every occasion; those that come to my house and play games and stuff, those I go to town/the cinema with, and those I go clubbing/to parties and drink with. All assembled from people I've met since I left school. I still see a few people from school, but the majority of the people I just mentioned are from college/uni.

    I have only 2 friends in real life. I wish I had a few more.

    But I have fun when I'm alone.

    There are three people I'd consider to be my friends, though I'm only very close to one of them. I've lost many over the past few years, though I can't say I'm unhappy with that. I'd get on fine with just my close friend (oh, all right, "best friend").

    i burned alot of my bridges in life and don't have many friends, other than the ones that were strong enough to stick with me.

    but yeah, nothing wrong with starting off a new clean slate.

    I have uh, lots of people that I'm friendly with, and we get a long swimmingly. Actual friends though? Not too many. About three. In my mind a friend is someone that actually sticks by you through thick and thin, won't screw you over, and is there for you when you need it.

    Got your car towed and you have no money? A good friend you can call them up and they'll give you their credit card number over the phone and save your day.

    Need help moving? A good friend will cancel their plans to go out drinking and partying to help you out.

    Most importantly, a good friend just enjoys you as a person and being in your company, and they don't value you for what you can offer them. There isn't much to do at my house for example, I don't have cable, not a lot of videogames (pretty much just mario kart for two player), but my friends don't care. They'll come over and despite the fact my place is boring as hell, just talk and socialize with me.

    I don't consider someone a friend because we hung out once or twice and we smile and say "Hi" to eachother whenever we see eachother. They might be wonderful people and I might like them, but are they my friends? Nah.

    A best friend will laugh at you for messing up and tell you to go work at McDonald's or something to get the money you need.

    A best friend will come loaf around on your yard and have his drinking party right there in front of you while you work.

    A best friend will come sleep on your couch, steal your XBox, tell you that you suck because you haven't got the newest Halo game yet and then go and drink all your beer.

    Anyway, yeah, I've got a lot of friends both online and offline, but I need a lot of time alone too. Can't handle being surrounded by people all the time.
