You sound like me in the work place. I don't like gossip, and I certainly don't like drama. I have actually chased people out of my home for bringing drama into it. It's really something I have very low tolerance for.

I'm not a loner. I'm a proud american. That right there suggests a solidarity does it not?

Now, quit being a loner. Join the team & come in for the big win!

We want people like you to be american with us!

Everyone is MY friend. You can be my best friend if you want.

Star for you on the patriotic end. Solidarity is a virtue worth regarding, and I am part of the team.
I have served my country, I started a family, I have started a buisness with people I treat as family even though they are employees. I am part of the team. The part that sits next to the guy who's falling apart and detaching himself getting ready to quit - and I will stay there as long as need be, without forcing my way into his or her psyche. Just to say- I've been there, this # will pass, you will move on, just #in breathe and let's get on with it whatever it takes.
I just jumped on you because I saw what looked like someone getting attacked for being different.

I like to socialise at work, I talk to everyone and get on well with most people.

Sometimes I make up lies about other employees, spread rumours. I like to cause trouble between other members of staff then stand back and enjoy the drama that unfolds it's a great laugh.

the best thing is, I'm really popular and most folk seem to like me, so it's a win-win situation for me. I get to cause trouble and still be popular...you can't grumble with that.

I'll repeat how I described you earlier...


I don't trust people like you who make easily debunked generalizations


And you are the sheep....worried of your own shadow

Nope. They think too much, they must not be introverted loners like the rest.

No i meant my current neigbours. I'm just not interested in meeting them that's all. Being alone is not for everyone and i don't automatically hate people who have a better social life than me. Except the obnoxious social media users who post every f#cking little thing they do. I'm not even jealous. Live and let live is my motto. Just leave me alone and everything is fine.


Yup, I can understand that entirely.

But I am curious about your 'manipulation fad' you went through, as that is actually an Anti-Social behavioral trait. (Again, Anti-Social from a psychologists perspective, not the common use of the term)


Well i discovered it by accident and at first it was like a drug i also didn't gave a sh!t how i made the other person feel about themself. Manipulating people was pretty easy if you know which buttons you had to push. I inflicted alot of emotional pain and i continued to go down that road for a while and it lead to more misery and harsher consequences. I'm not sure what would have happened if i couldn't have stopped myself at the right time. Now i got my own code for such things and i'm kinda trying to redeem myself but i'm not fooling myself because i know that's an impossible task to accomplish. Like i said it's complicated.

How do you live with doing what you do?
Does it make you feel good to cause problems for others just because you want to enjoy the drama that you caused them?

So? When was the last time you did your civic duty? You think home security is funny?


What home security? What do you know of me?

I'm more likely to trust a loner who minds his own business than a busy body, social butterfly type. When approached by talkative, overly friendly strangers, my initial feelings are skeptical. Like, "wtf do you want?"

I'm a family man with 3 kids, a great woman and a small circle of close friends. I'm polite and friendly to most everyone I deal with. That being said, sometimes I don't feel like engaging in superficial small talk and prefer to be left alone. I generally don't become close with neighbors or co-workers. I'm not looking to make new friends or establish new relationships. I'm sure some people have pegged me as a weirdo but those people and their opinions mean nothing to me.

I've had days where the thought of being a loner sounds pretty good. Coming home to 3 wild, misbehaving children and a cranky woman can sometimes make you wonder what that loner life would be like. I wouldn't trade my family for the world but I don't blame anyone who chooses to walk their path alone.

Perhaps. But being as there loners, all they got is spare time.
