I personally can't stand people who can't stand being alone. To me, that shows some signs of insecurity and lack of personality and self-assurance. When I came to Hong Kong I spent the first 8 months doing stuff with people i just met, acquaintances and what not...and have now realized that I feel more at ease doing shit by myself and living life on my own terms. Not saying I don't enjoy some good company...but if you feel the need to always be around a group of people, especially when going out, I don't find that particularly admirable. When travelling overseas I love going out at night by myself. Nowadays I spend most of my time by myself and I'm rarely bored.
