Maybe Lonliness can be GOOD
#1
I got a wife and kids in Baltimore, Jack.

I went out for ride, and I never went back.

Like a river that don't know where it's flowin'

I took a wrong turn and I just kept goin'

I'm not sure why you are posting lyrics to this song. It's misleading given how the song ends.

Everybody needs a place to rest
Everybody wants to have a home
Don't make no difference what nobody says
Ain't nobody like to be alone

Perhaps you're confusing loneliness with being alone.
Running away from your problems rarely works, you see, because your problems go with you.

I think that everything in life can teach you lessons that’s both good and bad.
Loneliness can teach you to really see someone, wanting to get deep under their skin, knowing them for what they truly are. To appreciate what they are able to give. 
To be honest, I’d rather have few of those relationships that lots of so-called friends.
We all have demons, I just choose to feed mine.

Well, Im single and dont regret it. But I think its just because I havent found the right person yet. Of course though, if I do find that person, I'd not be foolish enough to turn it down for philosophical reasons.

Thank you for offering worthwhile insight to my post, Jessicat.

As the song clearly states, whatever people think they want, often
it is very good indeed to simply get up and walk away.

That sounds more like the labor of being on tour to me.

See that...is probably one of the only things I'm actually somewhat afraid of. I'm really good at calling bullshit where bullshit is, but that 0.01% of the time that it isn't bullshit...I have this feeling like I don't want to mess that up, you know?

Boom. Same. Dunno if I'd go so high as .01. Sure, it's not easy, but it's not THAT hard either. I'd be hard pressed o come up with a figure but Ive known many a lady would make a fine long term partner. Which is why I cant get abord the other philosophy. I feel its kind of regressive too much.

Bah, I was generalizing a randomly made up number. I probably can get a girlfriend, I just don't really want to. I've been told that I have too high of standards, but I also don't really have motivation for love and relationships like I used to. I kinda gave up on the prospect when I turned 30 and had been single for 6 years. *Shrug* I'm an introverted artist and hobby intellectual. I harbor no ill will or feeling towards women or even to that of love and sex, I'm just simply indifferent and not really motivated by them in life anymore. Or to put it simply: If I had to hypothetically choose between the "American Dream" and getting to see the Ziggurat of Ur in person, and walk among some of the oldest known ruins of human civilization...I'd rather see the Ziggurat of Ur. I'm just, motivated in life by other things, different things, than the prospects of relationships, sex, and love. I was not always like this however, I made myself like this, on purpose for reasons of stability and survival. It took several years, much trial and error, but eventually I got to a state of pure neutrality. I'm not asexual, or gay, or bisexual, I'm a heterosexual male who just chose to think outside of the box, rather than within it. I figure: If love wants me bad enough, it'll find me instead and be annoyingly persistent enough to where I can't possibly not notice. Until then? The world is full of plenty of things for me to keep myself busy mulling over instead. A friend of mine told me once that I'm a "glitch in the matrix" and I laughed and told him I'm the missingno. in the old Pokemon games (which was just this weird glitch symbol that appeared on the screen).

IncolaVacui, your sense of self is really admirable.

Or lackthereof, depending on which way you look at it...I found what works for me, what stabilized me. I thought I'd find that in another person but, I did not. I didn't entirely plan on finding it within myself I just kind of stumbled across it during a therapeutic exercise of filling my thoughts with as many distractions as possible. Incola Vacui literally means: "Void Dweller." I found meaning in the meaningless, something in the nothingness.
