Do you enjoy being anonymous and private most of the time?... Some people prefer to socialize with others on a regular basis...How do you feel? Do you enjoy keeping to yourself most of the time...or do you crave company?....This obviously plays a big role in where we choose to live. Don't you think?

I'm a natural loner but I also like being around people.

I'm not super social, but I have my group of friends and I'm open to all kinds of people. I especially like traveling. Road trips with friends are some of the best memories I have.
I'm not the type to "mingle"... At least when I'm sober.

I'd hate to live alone if that's what you're asking.

I have social phobia and I am more to myself until I feel comfortable around the person.

Unfortunately, this isn't a topic for the General U.S. room.

What is Considered On-Topic Here in General US? What topics belong in the City vs. City subforum? What are the Rules?

I'm an-almost extreme loner with some contradictions. I don't make a lot of close friends and will not socialize with co-workers after work (don't even like luncheons except with those I consider friends). I can go to the show alone, no problem. I've been good at entertaining myself since I was a kid.

I travel either with my husband, or alone. Will not vacation with friends or other family. Ever.

But I do enjoy variety in the friends I do have. I like them for different reasons and, thus, they're very different from each other.

And while I can't say that I like crowds (who does?), I do enjoy street parties and festivals with lots of people. In those circumstances it brings extra life.

Wanting to stay anonymous is one of the reasons I'm not interested in Facebook. I'm even cautious of what I reveal on c.d.
