Being a tad strange, pedantic, excessive and controlling (such is my weirdly happy life), I have found being a single home dweller allows me to be content and still in control. I can have visitors but rarely, but the sound of my own existence although socially wrong is how I survive. – Dave

Living alone, I like the fact that I can eat when and what I want, be myself in my skin. At work (I am a checkout-chick, in my 60s) I see the results of living alone, especially in seniors when I know I am the only person they can chat to for two minutes. I hate the fact I can’t share a comment with someone while watching a TV show or have a conversation. – Pat

I miss the company. Having someone to say good morning and goodnight to. The kiss I used to get before leaving home to go shopping. The security of someone laying next to me in bed at night. The oh-so-quiet meal times. I hate living alone! – Joy

I can have privacy and total peace and autonomy just by myself, freedom to do and act in my own way living alone. No human conflicts and disputes arisen from living with others, do not need to adapt oneself to accommodate other living habits… so many gains from living alone and I definitely love it. – Carol

I love being able to have absolute control of the TV remote! – Carolyn

I started living alone 10 months ago. At first it was frightening, as I have never experienced it and I’m 55. Now I’m loving it. I go out and do not have to worry about the time factor. I’m starting to save money. Life is great. – Sharon

I LOVE everything about it. But sometimes, late at night, I truly wish I had a soul mate to talk to instead of dark silence. – Karen
