I've preferred my own company since I was very young, so I can't relate with people who say "I'm lonely.", as it simply doesn't register.

My wife never is either, which is great as well (peas in pod).

Are you simply not comfortable in your own skin or what?

Do you need something, someone to quiet your mind or entertain you?

I know that I am not typical by any stretch, so I wonder what it feels like.

If it is nurture, nature, or a chemical imbalance thing?

Considering how often you post on here, it seems like you need some kind of human interaction

You're telling me :laugh:

It's terrible, really.

I need a better/healthier way to kill time and procrastinate.

I think a lot depends on your school situation as well.  Generally, I'm really busy at work and then I have a lot of classes in my school that has 500+ students.  I have a lot of contact with students and teachers during the day.  So it's very tiring, so usually when I'm not at school I want to take it easy, so I'm too bothered about socialising out of school.  That is also why I like to book holidays in places where there are hardly any people, obviously not in Korea.  I can get my fix of people almost every day when I am here.

lol are all of you guys?  I'm a girl and I'm lonely as can be, been here more than 6 years.  I'm also very introverted with social anxiety, go figure.  But I'm kinda at peace with it most of the time until it hits me that I'm not getting any younger and I shouldn't stay in the same place year after year (been in same town 5 years).  Good thoughts here. 

Sadly I"m also kinda a deep thinker who can't connect on an authentic level with most people who live in this area, I've mostly been able to do that online or through some social apps :/

The post about living down south or abroad vs in Seoul/Gyeonggi has me thinking.... maybe it's hard to change location but it should make a difference where you have access to more open minded/likeminded people.

The isolation of Korea is the best part about it!  :azn:

Hanging out on this peninsula cut off from the world, love it. And I get so much work done. I guess I'm simply genetically incapable of feeling loneliness, I find the lack of people bothering me over here totally fantastic.
