What do you prefer? Being on your own or with someone you know very well...? Watch

    What do you prefer, and what leans more towards your idea of fun? Being by yourself or being with a very good friend you know extremely well... Or going out to a party or social event and meeting lots of new people, being very loud, etc?

    I personally feel uncomfortable in large crowds and I'm not a very outgoing person. I prefer to be with people in a more relaxed and quiet enviroment whether it's in someones house or going out to dinner.. Things like clubbing, raving or whatever are not my thing. In my house my housemates always have very large gatherings and lots of people always come over, but it's not something I feel comfortable with.

    I am happy the way I am, but also in a way I feel as if I'm missing out on fun because of my character.

    So what do you prefer? And does society ever make you feel as if you're 'weird' or 'unsocial' if you do not love large crowds of people, and if a lot of the time you like to be on your own?

    Mostly depends on my mood. Although I'd normally rather be with good friends than on my own

    Small group of good friends, similarly I am not generally a fan of crowds(though you wouldn't know it....I'm a bit of an enigma really.) and loud music is unbearable, though that's a separate issue.

    I enjoy being on my own as well as being with a very good friend just hanging out most of the time. Occasionally, I'll mix and hang out with larger groups of people, but otherwise, I enjoy solitude.

    I didn't choose solitude.

    I don't like big get togethers, especially when it's with people you know you are unlikely to ever see again. A gathering with a few of my close friends I like, but as much as I like it I'm going to say I prefer being on my own. There's nothing quite like just sitting and thinking. Don't get me wrong it messes with my head sometimes, partly because I think about quite strange or somewhat depressing things.
