How do you know if you are a quirkyalone? You could take the quiz*, if you like that sort of thing. But really, if you are quirkyalone, you probably already know it without the quiz.
It’s okay that I’m alone. But maybe there is something wrong with me? Maybe I’m just too picky?
If you’ve ever thought about how much you love being alone, but felt weird or out of place thinking that, you’re probably a quirkyalone. If you have no problem entertaining yourself, and even find your own company to be better than others’, you’re probably a quirkyalone. If you are open the idea of a relationship/marriage but not actively seeking it, you’re probably a quirkyalone.
I think you get the picture.
I agree with the main principles and could argue and debate the finer points (the obsessive romantic chapter in particular chaps my hide), but overall, it is a solid book for people who feel perfectly fine and even *gasp* GREAT on their own. Its not that we scorn couples or hate coupledom, we just know what we want and won’t compromise. Is that just being picky? So be it if it is. I’d rather spend my nights with myself than with some less than ideal.
And that last sentence? That’s how I know I’m a quirkyalone.
*My quirkyalone quiz score was 120 – VERY QUIRKYALONE: “Relatives may give you quizzical looks, and so may friends, but you know in your heart of hearts that you are following your inner voice. Though you may not be romancing a single person, you are romancing the world.”
