One who spends most of their time in solitude. This may or may not be by choice. If it's by choice, the person is probably an introvert and enjoys their independence. But for those who are a loner not by choice is usually the result of low confidence and the inability to make/keep friends and not fitting in with society.
There is nothing wrong with being a loner if the person enjoys their solitude. But for those who are one by chance, it is not fun and can result in depression.

This person may or may not have social skills, but often is alone. This may be through choice, or just not having any friends, but these are people who are happy in their own company.

A loner is someone who becomes one by way of personal experiences that have distanced them from people, preferably by choice. They are likely to be shy and soft-spoken. They enjoy loneliness and anything that's considered a one-person hobby such as video games, Internet & books rather than finding solace in people. They do their own thing, don't really care what others think of them & usually have no interest in pursuing intimate relations with anyone they like of the opposite sex; they prefer platonic connections.

Occasionally, a loner will make friends despite their aversion to people in general. They're the happiest when they're alone, yet they make time to socialize with the friends they have & make new friends. However, they somewhat oppose hanging out in groups; they will be mostly quiet unless they know something that's related to an ongoing conversation. They take interest in things that require intelligence to understand, which can make them successful in the hard sciences, like computer science and engineering. This can lead to nerdy tendencies, which may make the loner appear to be a lonerd, a nerdy loner.

A loner is often misjudged by others who see them as lame, arrogant, weak or just plain weird. Despite that, they tend to concern themselves with their real problems instead of social ones. They are seen as one-of-a-kind and have many hidden talents. Get to know one and you will have a real friend in the making, and, in some cases, an intimate relationship.
I am proud to be a loner, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Basically, a person who likes being alone. Unlike the social attitude that says people who are alone are really unhappy inside, many loners are actually the happiest when they're alone. Rather than finding solace in friends and family, they find solace in things such as video games, Internet, books, etc.

But the main way political beliefs are inputted into people is through being social and associating one's self with others. So unfortunately, many loners tend to have radical beliefs and hold morals that greatly differ from their peers and even their own family. To put it simply, you can find a communist in a family of patriotic Americans or a conservative in a family of liberals.

Someone who see the people in this world and knows they're fucked up, therefore avoiding interaction with them.
Why loner:

Just look around the internet and you will see what i mean. They were those people who used to be my friends when we were kids but it's sad to see what they have becomed now.

someone who is isolated from others.sometimes self imposed,other times not
there's actually freedom in being a loner if you approach it the right way.you can do whatever you want (within reason,of course) and if you come to the realization that you are a loner,then there's no mystery if people are going to like you.enjoy your life and let everyone else worry about living up to
some image.after my last girlfriend broke up with me,i felt free for some reason.sure,i loved my ex,but i didn't HAVE to be friends with her friends,i
didn't have to talk to people she knew,but i didn't like.i didn't have to justify why i liked this music or watched that tv show.or why i had the job i had.

people don't like me? so what! i've been dealing with that since elementary school.if you make friends along the way,cool,but live your life the way
you want.the WORST thing is to have regrets about not being what you wanted to be in life.plus your life is how you design it.you put yourself in good situations,
then logically good things will happen.you hang around bad people and situations,then yeah,bad things tend to happen.and it doesn't matter if you're a loner or not.
