"Women are the backbone of all societies. They do a substantial part of the work, and play a major role in raising the future generation yet they are largely powerless. The decisions that count are made by men and foisted upon women."

Loneliness and Loners – V. Who Are They?

If loneliness has so many facets, loners on the other hand are easier to visualize in our minds. “He is a loner,” connotes an individual who stays by himself, is remote, and may have something somber about him. I am saying “him” because in my experience, I have never met or heard of a she-loner. It is easy to confuse loners with other people who keep or are forced to keep to themselves. A so-called nerd is kept isolated by the image he projects, he has few or no friends and girls wouldn’t be caught dead dating him! But the nerd will outgrow this stage of life once he gets over the awkwardness of adolescence.

The real loner has probably been scarred during his early life. Children and later adolescents will tease him and keep him out of games, gossips, and conspiracies. Thus, he grows up as an angry youth. As an adult, he will be rejected by women, or, if he is good-looking, will go through a series of short and tumultuous relationships. Likely, he will not be able to hold a job for long and will wander from job to job.

A loner can be a walking time-bomb, or may simply drag himself through life until death puts him out of his misery.

The anger bottled inside will be directed towards society. “I’ll show them all what I am capable of doing.” The bombers, the serial killers, and the mass murderers who enter, one day, in a public place and shoot at the crowd with the purpose to kill and maim are, as we discover later on, often loners.

    Why are you making it sound as if we loners are so dangerous and a threat to society? You know what, perhaps people like you deserve to be plagued by terrorists and serial killers. They kill you because of society’s mindset. Everything starts from when they are children. They were powerless and weak to try and break out of society’s hold and later on. Killing you people off is what they think is the only way to teach you a lesson. It’s all society’s fault.

    Normally I tone down such a comment; but I won’t do it here. Why? Because, I am a loner myself, and I love it! I certainly harbor no ill-feelings towards society at large.
    My question here is why, among so many interesting articles on my site, is Loneliness and Loners the most popular article (according to the statistics and the numerous comments)?
