Calling all loners.
I made this poll because I read an article from Psychology Today about loners and it got me thinking about why people are loners. The article seems to interchange "loner" with "introvert" which I know isn't always true...so ignore that :)
When I say loner for this poll I just mean a person who spends a lot of time alone, whether they want to or not. (Some people are extremely shy but would like to form relationships.)
I chose the option "results viewable to: None" so hopefully you won't be shy in responding.
Are you a loner?
