Maybe so but I'd never lived alone until around the turn of the century. I finally decided "sod this!" and I haven't looked back since :)
I think there's a lot of nonsense in the media that gives the impression that if we aren't in other people's bloody pockets every minute of the day that we'll be unhappy and unhealthy and and poorer and die early etc. Solitude is underrated IMO.
