Don't we all need therapy in some way?
I don't know if it's an age thing, but I like people, but in very
small doses. I like my solitude. I live with someone , but she is kind of the same way so we have our space. One great hobby I took up years ago is chess. Chess.com is free and although excruciatingly humbling, it's a great game to enjoy on your own.
