Living alone.....the good things about it!
Closed

I live alone and although it can get lonely at times, I've realized there are a lot of good things about it. I can walk around naked if I want to and double-dipping is certainly ok. I don't have to pick up after anyone and if I don't feel like picking up after myself it's not a problem. Whether or not the toilet seat is up or down or the cap is on the toothpaste doesn't matter. If I feel like eating 7 porik chops and 12 ears of corn at one sitting I don't have to worry about any sarcastic comments from anyone. Living alone has it's drawbacks but also a lot of benefits....can you think of any that I haven't mentioned?

I never have lived alone, I am a cancer and alot of people know that cancer's don't do well being alone. They also know that we believe in an eye for an eye.

You have peace and quiet when you need it or want it!!! You do not have to fight over the TV remote and which show that you want to watch.

When you live alone, you are the boss. Only your rules matter. You can go for as long or short a time as you wish with no human interaction. Depends on you.

Privacy, walking around naked, watching tv when you want and never having to wait for the bathroom are all perks to living alone

Sometimes I would like to have dinner with someone or go to a movie, but I can honestly say I am content to be alone. Although my son is living with me currently, it isn't the same as having a significant other. Another good thing is no one tells me to quit snoring--LOL.

I lived alone for several years and while it was a different lifestyle than what I had experienced, I too enjoyed it - for a while. I missed the interaction with kids, husband, and found I missed sharing and the companionship. I found myself skipping meals because I wasn't used to preparing food for just one person. Thankfully, I was blessed with a wonderful second husband and there are no issues with sharing the remote, not being able to watch a certain program on the television or radio, as we have similiar likes. We make time for "alone time" and I can retreat to read a book if that is my wish. The older we get the more I truly enjoy having someone near and dear. Having lost a husband at a very young age, I don't want to be the one "left behind" again.

I lived alone for many years and loved it. I could do anything I wanted and didn't have to worry about someone else getting upset. If I wanted to lie around and be lazy and read all weekend I could. I could watch what I wanted on TV or listen to what I wanted on the radio. I would come home after a busy / stressful day at work and I could put on my comfy clothes and just relax. Now I live in a house with my blended family and it gets crazy. I have to share the bathroom, I almost never get to watch a program I want and meals are very hard and I can't just have a bowl of cereal if I want for dinner. Both have there advantages and disadvantages. I will say I really miss the solitude of living alone sometimes.

I always lived alone when I was single! You made some great points about why it's nice! I liked to come home and not have to answer to anyone. If I'm in a bad mood, I can be in one by myself and not keep having someone ask 'What's wrong?'. GRRRR! I don't have to answer the phone if I don't want to and if I want to buy something for myself, no one is there to drill me on how much it costs, etc.

I have a sister that lives alone and I worry about her now that she is getting older. She lives in San Francisco and one day she hurt her knee. It was tough on her walking up and down the hills and her apartment has staircase that she has to traverse in order to gain access to her apartment. I worry that if something happens when would someone know? She has friends, but I don't know if she is in contact with anyone on a daily basis, besides work.

You never have to beg for the TV remote!
