Happy Quirkyalone Day! — 5 Comments

  1. That’s a good point, Wiebes. Maybe using the term “quirkyalone” is a way to take back this definition of “alone” that does not have any value judgments associated with it. Too often, the association is alone=lonely.

  2. You wrote
    “I am not alone, thank you very much, I have tons of friends. I just happen to sleep by myself at night.”

    So at night you are alone? By definition? I am wondering if there is some confusion between “alone” and “lonely”. You don’t sound lonely (which is a judgement word) but “alone” is an objective description to indicate whether you are in contact with others at the moment or not.
