Yes, I'm curious about that too.I wonder how usual it is in the female though?
Even in a family such as mine where it is common, I don't know any of the womenfolks who really are 'loners'. The few spinsters/ widows within the family were incredibly social people.
I mostly prefered living on my own once I finally got a little house and stopped flatsharing, and I generally feel very uncomfortable around large groups of strangers (for some reason, bushmoot appears to be different??? There's even sneaky footage of me dancing to Mad Dave and Cap'n Badger's mobile-phone amp at the bushmoot, which is unheard of as I normally never feel that safe in a big group of strangers And it's got nothing to do with alcohol consumption - I was sober at the time!)
BUT I love parties where it's just a small group of my good friends, and I find I have to make myself go walking/camping alone as I'd prefer a close friend or two along with me. Not generally because of fear - because of loneliness, though I enjoy myself when I actually pluck up the will and go. None of my friends are geographically close enough at the moment to come with me, and not many of them enjoy camping anyway tbh.
