I’ve been a recluse so long, I’ve really sort of forgotten about it. I only remember under stress, when my family bugs me about meeting up for a family do or something. Bleah. I guess I must like it… it started when I was about ten, and I’m 43 now. Long live the recluses… we never pick up the flu from work. =)
Recluse-in-Training…so thats what my result says. Well when I saw just the result, I was like …what the **** but when I read the description, I realized that nothing else could describe me better. Nice stuffs. Enjoyed your 99 things…I am presently facing a writer’s block and my job in a Call Center doesn’t help the matters either.
I’m a recluse, I’ve been one for about 2 years now, I 20 years old, I play video games and watch anime, I’m a total otaku as well. The only time I leave to so go to the gas station to get some gamming fuel, I stay up late and wake up at about 4 or 5pm and do it all over again. I buy almost everything online… I one time even bought a gallon of milk online, come to think of it, a orginisation called my house the other day wondering if I was interested in a program that will actually by all my gosseries and deliver them to me. I not sure how they got my number or how they new I was such a recluse, kinda freaky. Anyway, I like it, no one here to piss me off or to get in my way, im not crazy (who said I was crazy), I’ll be an recluse an otaku forever!
Ello, I am pretty much a recluse so my horrible girlfriend keeps telling me. She thinks it is pretty insane to be up at 3am or 6am and then sleep til late morning or just when the fuck I want!
I am pretty much a Misanthrope as well…anyone else??! I didn’t realise there was anyone like me. I have been made to feel ashamed of my lifestyle. I sometimes don’t go outside for days and I now have a bit of a phobia about using the telephone. I go for days without talking to anyone or even setting one foot outside my door. Sometimes, today for instance I have had to resort to powdered milk as I have a phobia about going out, most people think I am weird where I live and so they leave me alone for the most part!
Recluse in training l ……….i actually came across when i was trying to find out whether i can socialize at all after totally lettin my bro down at a party where i was a total antisocial……..Sigh sigh truth is so bitter for me ………Very nice blog tho
I’m not doing a whole lot these days, I’ve since retired from Printing and Graphic, wife is still working at her business however. I do some photography from time to time as a hobby and enjoy spending time with my wife at home now that the kids have moved out and on their own.
I am The RECLUSE’S RECLUSE…I love my life style
my perfect existense would be.. Never have to work..an endless supply of Opiates..
Buying everything online & have it deliverd….NEVER have the Sun shine , I HATE SUNSHINE btw
GRAY & THUNDER STORMS..LONGER WINTERS WITH A LOT OF BLIZZERDS & HIGH WIND…
NO DAYLIGHT SAVEINGS TIME ….I LOVE THE NIGHT
I enjoy being a recluse because I spent my entire life resolving other’s problems, spending thousands to enrich their lives and really do not enjoy, want or need their company because I have given all I can give. I just want everyone to be happy, successful and leave me alone. I just feel stressed when they want to visit or include me in their activities. I have been let down by so many people, churches, organizations, friends that, although I don’t feel it was deliberate on anyone’s part, I trust no one and just enjoy the peace and tranquility when I have no expectations and am alone.
My result is ‘All Hail the Recluse’s Recluse”. Just for the record, I am an not an agoraphobic with a fear of the of open places or others. I simply have no interest in life beyond my front door. Some, like myself, just tend to thrive best hermit-style.
Done the quiz and I am a recluse in traning it says. In real life though, I am a recluse. I have two friends whom I text and email once a month. I have now moved country which means I won’t see them until who knows. I contact my family by text on my mobile phone once a month and I have no intention of making friends. I am however, an animal lover. I greet shopkeepers and wave to neighbours. I am comfortable with that but as soon as I feel that someone wants to be a friend, I vanish. I cannot stand people’s presence around me. I am very protective over my territory (my home) and just don’t like people coming to the house, unless they have to do the plumbing or the house is on fire.
Im a recluse in my mind at least I work 6 days a week and get on with my work colleuges etc I get invited to places with them and occasionally go. I have only one close friend and we meet probably every couple of weeks I’ve had many friends in my life but have not maintained contact with them a few I wish that I had kept in contact with. If I had the money I think I would probably move to the country have a few dogs and really only keep in touch with my parents lol. I have had a few girlfriends and would like a life partner but Its hard to meet people when you live the kind of life I do. I guess I come across normal but I’d just like a quiet life with a beautiful girl to travel with.
I’m a female recluse in training! Most definitely I love it! I can only stand people around me for a short time. I eventually feel like I want to either have a nervous breakdown or whack them over the head with a two by four to make them get lost. I just get too stressed. I’m single with kids and yes I have to deal with the school and I walk them there and back everyday. But I rarely talk to anyone unless I have to and believe it or not I have an excellent reputation at the school. Probably because I keep my big mouth shut about issues. I love it when my kids go with their dad on the weekends. I need the time to refuel for the following week. Ahhhh it’s like heaven! I rarely go out unless I have to like grocery shop or whatever and even that takes me a couple of hours to pysch myself up to do cuz I just love being at home period. I can’t even stand family visits at my home ugh that is the most stressful of all. Ya’ all just leave me alone! LOL
I am def a recluse in training…I work, but I don’t socialize with anyone or take up any invites. I cannot wait to get home at the end of the day, shut the door, turn off the phone and just relish my own existence. I shop in express stores because I hate large crowds, never make eye contact and the only way I can get through dealing with people is to imagine I am invisible. I just wanna write, drink coffee, sit in my secluded garden, watch TV or read…perfect. Never want to be in a relationship again as it fuels my anxiety. I like my life. I am happy.
I think it can be a balanced life.It runs in my family;friendly enough,not shy,can get along with most anyone.It’s just a matter of preferring not to.Also,being indifferent toward interaction(as most people just leave you cold).Having a better time alone in bed with a book,as opposed to craving attention and opartying,can be wonderfully liberating.
i got recluses’s recluse. but hey, i still come to work everyday. i just basically think people suck and going out is an inconvenience but hey i do live in vegas town of whores and douchebags so….yeah. I love dogs. lol
Well, anyway, I got the Recluse’s recluse. I expected as much, as I think i’ve gone a full year or two without seeing any family members besides my parents who I live with. Same goes for my friends.
My dream life is renting an apartment, in some region that I don’t know anyone in, and just live life with no connections to anyone. I know it sounds weird, but whenever I think about living that life, I get so incredibly happy that only people who feel the same way I do could understand it. People are tiring to be around, and to cope with.
the old adage “no man is an island” is absolutely WRONG! i am an island and love every waking moment of soltiude and being a total recluse. I NEED NO ONE FOR ANYTHING–EVER!!!!!!!!!! i am an extremely happy person and love MY life the way it is. JUST ME!! i don’t even have a pet. people around me at work enjoy my company, but after work–it’s all about ME. i am a giver, never a taker. i am about charity and helping those in need. but when it’s my time–it’s MY TIME. i go to work–go home–happy happy, joy joy!!
Rob – I couldn’t agree with you more. I mean I have pets but I can testify to being totally happy, well-liked and a recluse. I recently took on a roommate. BIG MISTAKE. He’s great, don’t get me wrong – but I can’t tell you how invaded I feel. In four months – that shit is over, lol. Love being alone. Perfectly functional recluse here.
Recluse’s recluse. 33 and never had a girlfriend or even a date and just like staying at home with my own thoughts and reading and watching foreign language/world films. Used to be hurt about rejection by girls and no women ever showing interest in me but I have peace of mind now.
I am a recluse in training
My sister in law and my siblings drive me nuts! They like communicating everyday
I am happy to chat to them once a month or once every two weeks, preferably via text if I can get away with it.
I love them of course but once a month suits me just fine. I get so stressed when my husband wants us to visit his parents. I swear my mood changes dramatically!
I am happiest alone in the house. I sometimes think of letting my live in housekeeper go. She gets in my way. I sometimes lock myself in the room so I can be completely alone and I don’t have to deal with her.
Fuck the world and everyone in it. When I get my new place I am cutting everyone out of my life exept my son and only going out when I need to pay bills get stuff my son or I need. People fucking suck and are fake as hell. Im tired of opening up to people that dont give a shit and then wonder why you close them out
my result was recluse in training, which is kind of right. i think i’m by myself alot because i don’t have much family, alot of people are full of shit (just being honest) and my level of income. i enjoy being with my kids, watching videos online and hanging wit my lady friends.
I am a RECLUSE’S RECLUSE! I can dig EDDIE SHAPANSKI’s comments:
Eddie Shapanski…my perfect existense would be.. Never have to work..an endless supply of Opiates..Buying everything online & have it deliverd….NEVER have the Sun shine , I HATE SUNSHINE btw GRAY & THUNDER STORMS..LONGER WINTERS WITH A LOT OF BLIZZERDS & HIGH WIND…NO DAYLIGHT SAVEINGS TIME ….I LOVE THE NIGHT
Eddie, you and I would make great friends, except I like being alone. I don’t have to work. I do buy everything online, except groceries, and have it delivered. Sometimes UPS comes by 3 times in a week. I get depressed when we have days of endless sunshine. I thrive with months of gray drizzle, and about 39 degrees is perfect for me. It keeps the kids and dogs inside, and I don’t have to shovel my driveway (not that I’m going anywhere). I hate anything that delays the appearance of nighttime. 4AM is the best time of day if you have to go to Walmart or something to get a fuse. I am married, love my wife, we get along great, but I don’t love people. A Team-Building day at work would make me want to contemplate suicide.
Recluse in training apparently. I get real aggravated/cranky being around a lot of people for an extended period of time. I cuss people out (to myself) all the time because they are just in the way or crowding me. Seems someone is always around even in the most inconspicuous places sometimes. If I go down an empty aisle in the supermarket and want to take my time looking at something, it seems everyone wants to be in the exact same spot after I am there…annoying! I mainly think my attitude towards people has gotten worse over the years mainly because of what I read in the news and how it seems this world gets more f’ed up as time goes on. Don’t get me wrong, I will greet people or speak to people if they approach me or actually ask me a question (I am actually pretty nice), but I don’t go out of my way anymore to socialize. I had a group of friends in high school (made friends pretty easy), but once I left HS, it became harder and harder to make friends. Luckily I met my husband (online dating site) and we are very much alike…at least I can be reclusive with him. I haven’t worked for over 5 years and I am working on my degree. I am very much an animal lover (I have 6 pets) and will take a crowd of animals over people any day.
the reclusive life style sounds quite pleasant to me. people overwhelm me. not because I dislike them or anything, it’s just I feel mentally, emotionally and physically drained by them. I guess I’m extremely introverted and it’s hard to describe this to my friends without them making them think I no longer like them, ya know?
