Justin, I am sorry, but I must agree with this point of view. I think I know the reason... Perhaps you experienced something pretty bad in your childhood. Some problems with parents, or between your parents, probably? I know that I have no right to speak about this personal topic. But what I want to say is that we must not live with our past... Even if it sits so deep in us , that it already became an emotional habit. I really hope that you do feel comfortable with the way you are. But I did not see people who would truly enjoy the loneliness, and who would brag about it in the same time on the internet forum.
