Everyone needs a loner friend. Even though it defeats the purpose of that loner being a loner in the first place it assures that the friend is for life. This is common for lone-wolves who wouldn’t necessarily meet with you unless you have something of interest. Losing a loner friend can highlight your own shortcomings, and make you realize that you were always the one at fault.
A loner can be either an extrovert or an introvert.
An extrovert would always be on good terms with everyone he knows, but would never really completely commit himself to any person. He would always maintain his space, and never let anyone come into it unless they are invited personally. They are always the cream of the party, but if you notice carefully, they would always be the last one to leave, that too alone.
An introvert, on the other hand, would be a completely different ball game altogether. They are tired, and anxious about social gatherings, and would willingly take refuge behind huge book stacks in the library. They don’t gel well with the rest of the folk and are always away from the spotlight. Nothing bothers them, and if something unlikely does come up, they just leave. Both types of loners fall for intellect and genuine emotion. They won’t easily make great friends with many people and would take their time churning out the best people to be friends with.
Lone-wolves are the best kinds of people to hang out with.
They are funny, witty and have extremely good one-liners. They would never indulge in spouting or discussing crap, and would rather discuss something that is of some consequence in everyone’s lives. And they are the unknown warriors of the dark, and they prefer it that way.
If a loner has chosen you, it is because you are an honest person, whom they would love. Often they seek other loners, for birds of same feathers flock together, but it isn’t uncommon that people who aren’t loners can be friends with loners too. After all, it is all a matter of perspective. A loner can impart worldly wisdom, and his social friend would tie him to the roots of society.
Although due to their solitary nature, they have acquired the tag of ‘snobbish’, these people are far, far away from that. Soft-hearted, kind and compassionate, losing them is like losing your most prized possession, which you cherished.
