    • Oh absolutely! My alone time is very important and precious to me. When I am going through stressful times I like to find calming and relaxing things to do by myself to get back to that happy place. estatic

    • I cherish my alone time. But I’ve always been this way, I need time to myself to recharge. It hasn’t gotten any more or less of a need as I’ve gotten older. And I like to travel alone. That drives my husband nuts but I was traveling by myself since I was 18.

    • Definitely.  There’s no way I could go out three-four times a week like I used to 20 years ago!

    • Alone times great sometimes when you need to clear your head or just think about things. So yeah, I like having that time now and then.

    • Yes - I do!  I enjoy my time alone to do what I want to do, when I want to do it, without having to consider anyone else about it. No one interrupts my tv shows, my reading, or anything else I want to do.  I think, for me, it’s largely due to having been married or with someone since I was 19 years old - now I’m 59......my former husband was a real chatterbox, aggressive, Type A, etc. etc. I was often seeking quiet when I lived with him.....
      I do miss having a man in my life right now; but I do feel that when “the right one” comes along - if ever again - lol
      I would like him to keep his place to go home to sometimes.
      It may not be practical, but I think it would help the relationship. Too much togetherness can get on one’s nerves. We‘re not all the same of course; and there are women and men who love being together all the time, but I am no longer one of them.
      I feel like it’s MY time now...having been married and raised children........

    • At the moment I am in the last week of six weeks school holidays!  I have had virtually no “alone” time during this period...so I am desperate for the kids to go back to school!  I am much more contemplative these days.  I have had some serious health problems in recent years, and wondered whether I would even see my kids/grandchildren grow up.  I am now healthy and appreciate my life so much more - BUT if I don’t get time to reflect, I am not much good to anyone.  I would like to live for another 40 years and I want to live with authenticity and tranquility, and continue to make a difference in the community.
