“The loner who looks fabulous is one of the most vulnerable loners of all.”
Anneli Rufus, Party of One: The Loners' Manifesto

“We do not require company. In varying degrees, it bores us, drains us, makes our eyes glaze over. Overcomes us like a steamroller. Of course, the rest of the world doesn't understand.”
Anneli Rufus, Party of One: The Loners' Manifesto

“Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes, just sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating.”
