The Choice to be Alone

Social pressure has often pushed people to get into relationships and maintain them. This is a mistake for people that prefer to be alone. This is not considered a normal way of life for any person. Normal society is convinced there is something wrong with people that would rather spend much of their time without another person. They are often accused of being afraid of commitment although many have made a commitment to their careers. There are times when this pressure leads to even more problems.

Being in a relationship with another person to avoid social pressure does not generally work out well. Each person is being cheated of their right to exist however they are comfortable. People that prefer to be alone are often aloof and distant in a relationship. Their partner suffers the consequences of their lack of emotion. This type of relationship only works well when both partners have the same lack of need to be in a relationship.
