I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.
When I start dating someone I will at some point ask this question – are you happier on the beach or on a mountain. For me it is always going to be the mountain. I can already imagine the trails, the scrambling, the tree coverage and the beauty of the mountain that I would choose. Then today I clicked on this link which explains the personality types behind the choice and in a way it makes sense. I can be introverted and still want to share this view with someone. We could perhaps sit together in silence and enjoy it separately.
