I think it's healthy to be comfortable on your own.
Even if you meet someone in the future.
Relationships are healthier between people that are not mutually co-dependent.

Yes, i meant "content". Let me add, i see family all the time. No friends outside of my family. I don't feel i'm superior to anyone or anything, I prefer to think we are one, you know, "The Egg" story?

Balance, I feel balanced, content, happy.

Ha, hmm ok, agreed.

I can only express my thankfulness so much over the internet for the replies... awesome.

Years ago I read 2 books called The Naked Ape and The Human Zoo, both written by the anthropologist, Desmond Morris.

In these books, Morris talks about the "stimulus struggle" which is vital for a contented life.

Simple concept...too much stimulation makes you stressed; too little, you get bored (and, ironically, that causes stress).

You seek the happy medium...whatever that is, because it's different for everyone.

For some, just being around people makes them stressed; I guess that would be you (and, to some extent, me).

For others, being alone too much is the stressor, and these people actively seek the company of others to avoid feeling stressed.

If you are feeling just reasonably content with your lot in life, then you have found the happy medium, and you should not seek to change the status quo.

No matter what anyone else thinks.
