I think I have it stuck in my head that it’s unacceptable to do things alone which is what lead me down the Craigslist path. I’m so used to hearing people tell me how unhealthy it is to be a loner but I think if I’m content alone it’s totally okay.

For me, friendships should happen naturally but I’m not one to reach out, if that makes sense.
