Being a loner

One could definitely descrbie me as a loner but this is not always the case. At work I keep to myself, at this job I haven’t made a lot of friends but as I see it I just don’t have much in common with anyone here. I stay at my desk and don’t chat much with anyone. When it’s time for lunch I always eat at my desk unless I have to go out to run an errand. I sometimes wonder if my lack of openly friendliness comes across as indifferent.

No one can say I’ve never made friends at jobs. At my last job I became friends with a girl who was a few years younger than me. She was single, still in school and she seemed to come to me with boyfriend problems. I still talk to her here and there but she certainly made the job more enjoyable.

Several lifetimes ago, or at least it seems like it, I started working at a new company. I replaced a position and the girl who had moved up from that position trained me. We immediately hit it off like we’d always known each other. If I remember correctly we ate lunch together from time to time and continued our friendship even after we both left the company. In fact my boyfriend is her brother-in-law so I guess you could call us family.

I guess you just mesh with some people and others you just don’t. It’s ok, my little cubicle has become a second home for me.
