is it unhealthy to not want to be with friends?

I love being home just by myself more than doing anything else. I have friends, but I dont like being with them because they can be exhausting. I just highly dislike all the kids I know because they aren't creative or intelligent they're just slutty and crazy!! I just like to be home.

That's called an introverted personality. An introvert is one who gains energy from being alone. An extrovert is one who gets energy from interacting with others. Most people fall somewhere on a scale. If you're 100% introverted and 0% extroverted, that's a problem. If it's 85%/15% then you should be OK.

No you are just independent you dont like to be around people! especially if they are mean and slutty I mean who would want to be around people like that! You are just normal no need to worry better to stay inside and enjoy yourself and not have any drama like things in your life!

There is nothing wrong with being at peace by being alone.

Just tell them you want some time to yourself and that's who you are! I'm like that to, but half and half.

If you really don't enjoy being around those kind of people I can totally see where you are coming from.

I remember I couldn't stand the kids I had around, because none showed any signs of intelligence. Absolutely normal.

I don't think so because all human beings need alone time or else we would be insane

Well, if you are what they describe them as, no. You might want to try to hang out with people though.

Humans are social creatures. However, we need to have friends that we are compatible with. It sounds to me like you haven't found that yet. It's not terrible, or crazy, for you to want to be alone, like you said, and some people genuinely like to be alone. With that in mind, since you are on here you seem to be seeking human contact. I would suggest that you find different people to spend time with-- I can promise you that not everyone is slutty and boring, as I was once a teenager myself! Find people that you enjoy spending time with, and you will find yourself going out more. Join a club that you like, do a new or interesting activity, play a sport after school, take art classes or cooking lessons... whatever you are passionate about. Good friendships will follow <3

It's unhealthy to NEVER socialize. If you never talk to anybody all day everyday......well that's how a lot of serial killers were before we found out they were killers. Believe me there are a lot of people out there that are worthy of being friends with, they're not just gonna fall in your lap though.

No, it isn't unhealthy. Some people just like to be alone. If you are happy being alone, then it's fine.

jkgarrett17 is correct. You are an introvert. I'm an introvert. Approximately 25% of the population is introverted (although sometimes I can't believe It. It seems like there is a lot less). There isn't really a percentage of how much you are an introvert; usually you're either an introvert or an extrovert. Introvertism is perfectly normal. There are many web sites that talk about introversion. I also recommend the book "Introvert Advantage" by Marti Olsen Laney. It's really important for you to understand your introvertism. The U.S. is an extroverted country. Sometimes introverts have a hard time fitting in. They are also misunderstood by many extroverts. Introverts can sometimes seem aloof. They generally are not "people persons," they don't like to go to parties. Introverts think deeply and have rich inner lives; a lot goes on in their heads. They think before they speak, think before doing just about anything. They usually don't have answers right off the tip of their heads, but when they do get around to speaking, they usually have very much more insight on a topic then extroverts do. Be proud that you're an introvert. Introverts provide balance in an extroverted world.
