I am leaning to be alone. And it is the best thing I've ever done. I've gotten seeing movies by myself down - and I love it! It's so fun! I let myself get completely lost in the movie. I have eating alone down too, though I'm still working my way up to a sit-down meal by myself (so far, it's been fast-food or cafeteria style places).
I have gone on trips by myself. Short ones to NYC, so far. I'll be going to New Orleans sometime soon. Working my way up to traveling abroad alone. First places I've already been like London and Paris - cities I'm at least somewhat familiar with and can speak the language. Then, the world will be my oyster, and I'll be able to explore on my own.
(But. It's still nice when friends offer to work around your unconventional schedule and make times to meet up that suit you and your sleep patterns. It's nice to have friends who want to see you enough to do that without you having to ask. I don't have to be alone all the time.)
