I'd like more alone time, when I get it I always flail about for a while until I get comfortable with it.  By which time everyone gets back and I'm not alone any more.   
On business trips I do get lots of it and love it, and then when its over I'moverjoyed to be home with the family.  But right now I';d like about 3 alone days at home.

I like being alone as well.  I like drawing, working at my computer, reading, and such so often I find the solitude preferable.  Or taking my ipod to a local forest trail and just letting my mind and body wander as I listen to music.

One of my favorite quote about being alone comes from the character Elijah Snow from Planetary where he says that being alone is the best way to insure you get an intelligent conversation.   

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

I work with the public every day Monday to Friday so it's nice to have a bit of me time on the weekends and when I take my yearly leave in September. I do enjoy my work but dealing with the public daily can get a bit much sometimes.

I have a family of five and would never want to be without them.   But, deep down im a huge loner.

Same here.  I love my family and they're my entire life, but sometimes I just yearn for that mindless prattle lighthearted conversation to stop so I can have some peace and quiet to veg' out and relax.

As the old saying goes, be careful of what you wish for.

I vote RC is a weirdo. But not because he likes to be alone.

By the way, I like weirdos. You're all a bunch of weirdos to me. I hope you think of me as a weirdo.

I enjoy solitude from time to time, but used to need it much more.  Since having children I've found that I need less alone time than I used to.  Not sure if that's just due to changing over the years (which I would have done anyway) or because of the children (which would be compulsory).

I prefer being by myself as well.

Alone Time:
I send the kids off to bed at 8pm, then I go to bed.  My wife stays up watching something on TV.  I sit there in bed reading.  That's my alone time.  Any other time, I'm at work or at home with the family.  I haven't had alone time in a long time.  Part of me wants to try it out, but I know if I really have alone time and I'm at home I'll end up hating it.  I'd have to go out camping on my own so I an go for hikes or just sit and watch a stream go by. 

This is my awesome signature.  Jealous?

I like a certain amount of time alone but actually don't often get it. I'm pretty social but with where I work,aka a convenience store,I sometimes get so tired of the human voice that I feel like screaming. As a child I used to fantasize about having a little house all to myself. Of course,now that I'm married I am very happy but sometimes even a great husband can be wearing on the nerves....sorry,Alan! We got together later in life-I was 45 and he was 54- so we were accustomed to being alone. I'm sure I annoy him enough,too,from time to time. Sometimes we'll just sit in a room for a couple of hours,not really speaking but knowing the other is there.

     I enjoy the time when I'm alone at home, but at the same time, I miss her.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.
