I live with my son and my sister is here all the time. I don't mind them at all. Anyone else? No thank-you.

There are some days Id love to live alone but I kinda like my kids and husband so that outweighs the crazyness of a full house. LOL

I dream of the day where I can have ONE hour straight of quiet LOL

I don't think I would live alone well. At all. I don't even need to be near people or talking to them but just having people around, the feel of them there. Being able to go talk to someone if I need or want to.

I mean, yeah I like days I'm alone and my family is all out as much as anyone. But I'm just as happy when they come home. Even when we have our knock down drag out fights I can't imagine not being in a house with people for weeks at a time.

I notice I talk a lot more to my self/to the dogs when I'm alone.

I currently live alone. But, I'm also over at Mike's quite frequently. He is who I miss when I'm by myself - otherwise, I'd be perfectly happy living by myself with a dog for company. As it is, I live alone but wish we were living together.

I lived alone for about 2 years. It was alright - I wouldn't say I was loney, but not living alone is better.

No, I don't like living alone. I especially don't like being alone at night. When I was a teen (well I think i was 18 lol) my mom went on a trip and left me home for almost two weeks and someone asked her if she was afraid I was going to have a party and destroy the house and she just said "no.. She will lock herself in her room or my room as soon as it gets dark". LOL that is true. When I am alone I just sort of hole up in my room and never come out except to eat and go to the bathroom lol

While I would certainly enjoy more "alone time" I would not want to live alone. I have never lived alone, but some nights Justin has been out of town for work and it is just me and the kids and then I freak out at odd noises and have had nightmares that someone is breaking into the house! Usually though if he is going to be out of town for a week, my mom comes and visits, at least for a few of those days!

I live alone.. and in MANY ways.. it's better lol It's quiet, it's clean, everything is personal, nobody touches my stuff, messes with my dog, I can basically do whatever I want in my apartment and do like that it's MINE.
I spend my WHOLE DAY in classes, at work, dealing with people.. sometimes I just want to come home and not frikin deal with other people.

I live in an apartment building with a concierge and heavy security though.. so I don't really worry about noises in the night and I really like my neighbors so I don't feel scared or anything. In fact, I usually feel MUCH safer in my apartment then I do when I go over people homes (being on ground levels scares me. go figure lol)

I'm pretty introverted in that sense. and I find other people to be kind of tiring and since I am pretty social I spend all day with my friends and talking to people and sometimes need to come home and just..relax.

I would happily live with someone I knew who "got that' and knew to kind of leave me alone when I'm doing my own thing..
It was merely an issue of moving to a new city where I didn't know anyone..and I really didn't want to take the craigslist gamble and be driven crazy by someone for a year.
but I might re-evaluate the roomie situation in a year or so if I find someone I get along with well.

That's how I am as well!

I LOVE living with my husband, and prefer him being home!
