Seems for the last year, I've preferred my own company (just being by myself) to my social network. Outside of my BFF and DH, I really don't seem to like other people very much.
It kind of seems like the drama that comes with some friends is just too much effort.
But on the whole, I just really don't like a lot of people in my life. I used to be highly social as a necessity to my career, and I really got to meet a LOT of people and found out that the majority just didn't seem genuine or worth my time. So once I retired, I just kept to myself and let all those old acquaintances just fade away. Once I weeded them out, one by one, and really got down to the people I really wanted to keep in my life, I found that my social network was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. Can't say I miss any of them either.
I guess it's just a phase, since I'm transitioning into my role as "empty nester" and retired now. I do wonder if it's normal though. Where I used to be very social, I'm now finding that I don't mind being a "loner" at all. Is that odd?
