Are You A Loner?

93 posts in this topic

If you had a few hundred pounds burning a hole in your pocket and had a clear weekend ahead of you, would you punt or go out socialising?

 

I'm just curious as I personally have no friends.

Friends are over-rated.

Aww, this thread made me sad :(

I'll be your friend OP. We can go on MMF punts together and admire each others hairy balls while our chosen lady is exhausted and recovering from our frantic love-making efforts :)

You don't get offers like that every day.

Thanks for the offer Joker, but like Vin said, friends really are over-rated. 

 

Plus my balls are shaved. You'll have to get your hairy ball fix elsewhere.

Both, although i never have money burning a hole. As to the thread title question, no, although i was punting wise for 20 or so years of my 30 years keeping it totally to myself not knowing any other punter.

I like friends; but I couldn't eat a whole one.

I find myself probably becoming more reclusive, and would definitely punt first :lol:  I like to rent my friends by the hour....and they just so happen to all be stunningly beautiful ladies that have sex with me ^_^

If I had a few hundred pounds burning the hole and a clear weekend it would definitely be punting. Whatever is meant by socialising I can do that anytime.

I have one close friend (he's the only person who knows about my punting even though he doesn't punt); I have several friends; and I have many acquaintances.

I am happy to be in the company of other like minded people and I am equally happy to spend time on my own. But isn't that the case with most people.

I'd probably be tempted to go for a punt myself, as it's not often I'd have that amount of money and it's like a big chance. I can just as easily be socialable with £20 rather than what you quoted in the OP. Of course, the principal that money shouldn't be wasted rings true, even for punting, as there's nothing really practical about punting. It's fun, but you can live without it for a while. Like would you really want to spend your remaining £100 on sex, or for feeding yourself for the next fortnight?

I would go out socialising. I find punting is a short term fix. I still prefer to hang out with friends. If I don't score or dont want the task of chatting someone up, then punting is my backup.

Am i a loner?By nature yes but i make an effort to force myself to be around people even down to work.Spending time with people isn't something i go out of my way to do.Suppose i'm not overly enamoured with people.Animals however :) I do however have a few friends and a lot of aquantances.
Now with a few hundred in my pocket i'd probably do both.Have a punt and then on to a gig

You started punting when you were 10?! I'm impressed!!! ;->

 

To answer OP, the only thing that makes me a loner is spending too much time in forums like this LOL. I'm a social butterfly so I'd arrange a session before meeting the crew for fun in the 'real world' afterwards.

I think as I've got older I've become more choosy with friendships (aka not suffering fools gladly). To some people this would make me appear to be a loner but on balance I'd prefer to go socialising rather than punting - with the right friends that is.

I'd hire a new Morgan 3 wheeler; don some retro gear; pick up a certain lovely lady from South London; head for Bath and spend the afternoon in the rooftop  Spa, then the night in the  Royal Crescent. Perfect weekend!

Interesting one because I'd hazard a guess and say a fairly high percentage on here lead more solitary lives than the norm : punting, by definition demands quite an independent and surreptitious way of doing things. But I don't necessarily think there's anything really wrong with that. Just as society stigmatises punting, so it also stigmatises anybody who chooses to spend a lot of time on their won, like there's something wrong with it.

I like my own company, and although I value friendship very highly, especially a small group of very old close friends, I can still find myself getting quite frustrated with them. Surely it's about finding the right balance, just like a lot of other things. And in answer to the OP, I think it'd have to be a weekend of punting. A great thing about friendship is that it's free.

I'd echo your sentiments fully. As I've grown older (although I'm still young), I've definitely grown to love my own company more and more. And like you say, friends really can be annoying. I cut ties with all my school chums as soon as I left sixth form college. Since then all of the people in my life thus far have been either barking mad, suicidal, depressed or just plain boring. So what's a guy to do?

That's just people generally.  They all fit into one of those clearly defined categories.  You'll have to learn to live with it.

 

Or alternatively; lock yourself away, hermit-like, ordering outcalls and never speaking to another living soul, except on here.

Friends don't seem to be getting a very good press in this thread. Personally, I'd put them among the half-dozen things worth living for.

Like others on this thread I live alone & after an incident some years ago I find it hard to trust "friends".

I enjoy my own company & can do what I like when I like.

If I had a few hundred I would go for a punt first (even travel a fair distance for quality lady) Then have a few pints in the local pub when I got back, The people at the pub albeit friendly are not what I deem as true friends, I enjoy socialising with them though.

I do have an arrangement with one lady from said pub, like me she doesn't want a full relationship but we are both happy to stay the night in each others beds on occasion with no strings attatched enjoyment, she knows I punt & has even asked how I feel about booking a WG to join us sometime.

She sounds like a good friend !?

 

And I agree with Mr Bloom, that friends are right up there with the best things in life.

 

I don't think it's just about having a great time going out socialising, it's about a degree of trust and affection built up over a long period of time.
