Even though I love to be with my good friends, I still need time to decompress an unpeople, otherwise I may end up yelling and being mad for no good reason (hence the me time, I don't like being mad). I deal with anxiety issues sometimes, which can make life very complicated.

I like alone time to think, and do my own thing. That could be a few hours a day, or one weekend day.

I personally love alone time, maybe even a little too much.

I need 30% alone time per day. It provides me with reflection on my goals and the days events.

I enjoy early mornings late evenings for being alone, it helps me to process and focus events of the day, it brings me peace

My alone time is most important. It is quiet and solitude that I most at peace. Noise and the distractions of life have a short attention for me and seek out that place of peace each day.

I am a introvert and have done a lot of study on it and alone time is necessary.

I like a lot of alone time to think, surf the internet, and take online classes. Perpetual learner.

Not much. An occasional bubble bath with good music in headphones allows just that moment of no thinking at all

It's kind of like anything else. If I don't get much alone time I want more. When I do have more than a few hours alone I feel like I've had too much.

33.3333% because I just do not think that there exists anyone who I want to be "joined at the hip".

I would say I do not need alone time, however I would not want to give up my hour in the morning alone with God. So I guess the answer is I need one hour a day

I work around the clock and I often work alone. For me, I rather be around more people because I'm a people person. It provides me the freedom to do what I want in life.

I used to hate alone time. These days I truly enjoy it. Every week I get a minimum of 5 hours on Sunday. There are times on different days that I get some time as well. Sundays are my dedicated day though.

I need enough to find some peace in my mind, it varies from day to day. Some days I can spend completely alone in my thoughts, no peace and other days, just a single moment, I find peace....

I have tons of alone time, I'm divorced and have been cheated on after that. I'm afraid to risk my heart again so alone I am.
