I'm not lonely though, most of the time. I get so sick of the "dumbed down" people, I'd prefer to be alone. I'm very happy, that way I don't have to take part in the phony stuff that is a part of socializing. I'm fine w/o the rubbish that I see, and I'll take my own company together with my dogs/cat. and I feel quite content. Most of all, I don't feel I owe anyone an "explanation!"
