For the quirkyalone, there is no patience for dating just for the sake of not being alone.On a fine but by no means transcendent date we dream of going home to watch television.However, I've also learned how to live without one and stay happy regardless.I wonder how many of these "quirkyalone" people are INFJs?Yet make no mistake: We are no less concerned with coupling than your average serial monogamist.Secretly, we are romantics, romantics of the highest order. Out of millions we have to find the one who will understand.
And, as so many other posters have noted, it does seem to be a characteristic of Aquarians. Being alone doesn't bother me at all, I sometimes tell people that my favorite sound is the garage door closing when I'm home. I do the 'being alone' part; I like to travel by myself and go to a restaurant with a book, I didn't go to any proms, I get upset if I don't have enough private time, etc. We would prefer to be alone with our own thoughts than with a less than perfect fit.We are almost constitutionally incapable of casual relationships. All those nights alone, travelling, going to movies alone—they bring insight."You should not let yourself be confused in your solitude by the fact that there is something in you that wants to break out of it.Sometimes being surrounded by too many people confused and distracted me from the calm i felt when alone- and the clarity that sense of alone-ness brought me.I would often laugh to myself, and ususally no one seemed understand my humor or wild imagination.
